We”™re heading for the weekend folkens. I haven”™t got much to say that you want or need to hear. However, I will say this.
Tonight: Get your rear ends down to Monty”™s Brasserie at 8.30 tonight to check out dear friend and fantastic artist Juey. She is sublime, a real honest and raw talent and worth checking out. Oh, and tonight you can even take her home. Well, her music. As her debut E.P. “Before The Devil Catches Me” will be on sale. Come on, just go for it, yeah?
Tomorrow: Simply, it”™s Cheltenham Underground. Featuring Hip Route; The Drawing of the Three and Stressechoes. Doors open at 8pm at the Frog and Fiddle, in the barn. Entry Â£4/Â£3NUS. There isn”™t really any excuse not to go to this.
Right, enough plugging, on with todays Spotisfaction. Kev is bringing it today, So here he is. Make sure to check out the Hip Route track, as you know, they”™re playing the Underground on Saturday.

Bit of a mixed bag. A collection of tracks from my recently listen to artists with a couple of old classics thrown in for the fun of it. Part of the playlist was created while hungover, some was added during a quiet evening at home and the last few tracks were included during a quiet moment at work, I”™ll let you try and work out which tracks come from which period.
The Broken section, Broken Records and Broken Bells have been my two most listened to albums recently so I had to add them to the playlist and as we have the Spotisfaction meet at a Broken Social Scene gig it seemed fitting to include something by them.
************SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT************
The Cheltenham Underground are putting Hip Route on at the Frog and Fiddle in Cheltenham on the 27th, listen to this taster and come and check them out live if you are in the area.
I think Buffseeds lead singer Kieran Scragg (now lead singer of Iko who unfortunately aren”™t on Spotify) has a distinctly awesome voice and writes some brilliant lyrics, if you like this song check out Iko as well.
And the Kinks, one of the greatest bands ever in my opinion and a great track to help us head towards summer (just a shame the weather outside isn”™t currently that nice)
Kick back, relax, forget about work, live long and prosper, it”™s all shiny, keep it foolish, be excellent to each other and party on dudes!
