    Happy 250th to all LP contributors/listeners/mods

    here’s to the next 37,500 uploads

    Here is my 5

    ALLMAN BROWN – Sweetest Thing
    MARINA FLORANCE – Blue Diamond
    THE OLD PINK HOUSE – Talk
    UP DOWN GO MACHINE – Gambler
    VIVIENNE CHI – Vivienne

    I must admit to being shocked/surprised by Marina. I am used to hearing her beautifully toned vocals accompany folk songs and was caught a bit unawares. Love it.

    My top track this week was Vivienne

    BED – Bored Walk
    DRIFTBOX – Bread and Circuses

    SANDTIMER – Mackerel
    UP DOWN GO MACHINE – Gambler

  12. Liked lots of elements here so excited to see what makes the cut. These are my choices in no particular order but felt perhaps the spiky attitude of Fjorka was quite cool.

    ALLMAN BROWN – Sweetest Thing
    CLIMBING TREES – Fall
    FJOKRA – Bang On The Door
    ISAINTJAMES – Celebrate
    UP DOWN GO MACHINE – Gambler

  18. Happy 250th birthday you’re looking good for your age LP and still coming up with the goods. Another selection of new sounds to treat the ears any of which could have made it to my final five. In the end I chose the following but it could easily have been a different five the standard was that high.

    ASTRAL CLOUD ASHES – Moonphase Bloom
    BED – Bored Walk
    FJOKRA – Bang On The Door
    THE HAPPY SOMETHINGS – Jalapeno Kiss
    THE OLD PINK HOUSE – Talk

  20. DRIFTBOX – Bread and Circuses
    FOND OF RUDY – Love
    THE LITTLE UNSAID – Let Desire Back In
    LUAU – Muncle

    Tricky choice, nine songs that I loved on first play, took a bit of whittling down to get to these five.

  21. AAYUSHI – Prosaic Tales
    ALLMAN BROWN – Sweetest Thing
    ISAINTJAMES – Celebrate
    THE OLD PINK HOUSE – Talk
    UP DOWN GO MACHINE – Gambler

    Could have chosen double the amount!

  22. Some good tunes in there this week, my five favourites are:

    AAYUSHI – Prosaic Tales
    BED – Bored Walk
    KASAJJA – Come Round Here

    AGE – Peaks
    BED – Bored Walk
    FJOKRA – Bang On The Door

  24. I say this every time but it’s true. So many tracks I might have chosen on a different day but the warmth and inventiveness of Age won me over. The Old Pink House and Lara Smiles stood out for originality. Kasajja oozed style and Aayushi is soulful and has a fragile beauty. Great selection as always though.

    AGE – Peaks
    KASAJJA – Come Round Here
    LARA SMILES – Lies
