picture post

lovely mark over at cooking up a quiet storm asked what song does this picture make you think of? on one of my more bleeding obvious mornings i started humming sunshower... a whole lot of other folk thought of a whole lot of other songs... what would yours be?

and special well dones to whoever picked this...

alessi brothers - seabird


for some baffling reason mixcloud have stopped showing tracklists although the song info does pop up as you play but there's a lot of smashing songs here well worth a listen...

dream kitchen

i live in the kitchen. i'm typing at the kitchen table small teatime gin for company. sounds come out of the phone speaker whatsit or the radio or the computer or from the tweety squacky birds through the window. well usually. now they come from the kitchen drawer record player too. oh yes the kitchen of the future record player...

every home should have one...

it's been curtis and hopeton lewis and blossom oh blossom the give him the ooh la la lp every day... it's been an awful long time since i've soaked up lps properly played them all the way through lots and lots what with being partial to a shuffle and all. but oh blossom...

blossom dearie - like someone in love
