Spotisfaction Tuesday 04/05/10 – Thom Lavelle

So no David today, then. Yes, it has been a long weekend. Hope everyone had a good one. Mine was pretty fantastic, there was music, there were parties, there were surprise announcements. Needless to say, I’m the happiest, luckiest person alive today. So with that in mind, I created the below playlist. It’s not fantastically upbeat or happy, there is no structure, no elitism or any of that rubbish. It’s just a few tracks that I haven’t heard in a while lumped together in Spotisfaction form.

Listen to it here, if you will.

  2. Fluke – Atom Bomb (Atomix 6)
  3. Royksopp – Sparks

  24. Blur – Coffee and TV
  25. Beck – Modern Guilt
  26. Eels – Flyswatter
  27. The Dandy Warhols – Not If You Were The Last Junkie On Earth

There really isn’t much of an order to this list. As stated, I just wanted to listen to these tracks. Special mention to Chemical Brothers “Leave Home”, as this track reminds me plenty of my youth. I totally wore out my copy of “Exit Planet Dust” which I had on the magic medium of cassette tape. Explosions In The Sky are one of my favourite bands and “First Breath After A Coma” is probably the track that got me into the band. Finally, Blur’s classic “Coffee & TV”, which Tom Mitchell taught me to play whilst I was rather drunk at a party on Saturday. Good work, sir.

Anyway, get back to it and I will catch you on the other side.
