Welcome To 2017

Hello! It's been a little while I know, I took some time off around the holidays as usual but some life things came up like always. In fact they did again just last night but I thought I'd at least drop by with a little something. You may notice we've had a slight redesign, it's not the massive overhaul that I wanted but it does look a little nicer. Anyway, let's revisit some tunes for the new(ish) year.

M.C. Escher - Merry Christmas & Happy New Year (1961)

Used to be that I'd post a NYE track dump every late December. Missed the mark a little bit but I did have one planned (that I've since forgotten). Normally I kinda cop out and open it with The Knife's New Year's Eve because why not. Well I'm not going to do that now so instead have another of my all time favourites from the same album, get stuck into the acoustic goodness on offer.

I've been binging on ADULT. too, it's reviving the early 2000's Foxbat in me. This slightly reworked version of Skinlike has seen me home a few times so far this year, the high energy electro hiding Nicola Kuperus's moody monotone melancholy will probably be a mainstay of things around here for a few weeks to come.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, I've been looking over Royksopp's whole discogs since the last podcast. Junior remains a highlight, and an easy avenue for both newcomers and those who aren't too into electronic. It's been a while since Junior came out, but the production and Anneli Drecker's accompaniment remain as sweet as ever.
