“Bizness” by the tUnE-yArDs gives me the excitement of hearing new sounds. One of the most amazing things about this music is that it’s largely made by just one person, Merrill Garbus.

Phoenix make great music but sometimes the original instrumentals feels like they could use a different path, as with this remix of “Trying to be Cool” by Wax Nostalgic.

“The Presence of Your Grace” is taken from The Telescopes’ magnificent second album (released in 1992 on Creation Records) and is a little-heard shoegaze touchstone. Highly recommended.
