Morning folks. This week has been brutally busy for me – my wife and I told friends and family that we’re expecting a baby (woop!), so our feet haven’t really hit the floor between doctors appointments, dinner dates and showing people ultrasound photos. Fun times! Good thing I had a playlist in reserve, eh?
This weekend a few of us are going to see the DOOMTASTIC tour hit Bristol (tomorrow night, in fact), and it’s going to be mindblowing. MF Doom (plus his myriad alter egos), supported by Introducing (a nine-piece orchestra performing DJ Shadow‘s Endtroducing) and a DJ set by Jamie xx. Whoa. Tickets are still available, and I think I’ve got room in my car from the Gloucester area – let us know if you’re coming!
Love, etc. Dave
Today’s theme is movie scores. Each of the tracks are either from a film, inspired by a film (or vice versa) or were written by people famous for their film scores. I really enjoyed pulling this one together, and it’s amazing how you can find virtually any genre of music in a film somewhere. The thing I love about film music is that I always recollect the particular scene or moment in the film as I’m listening to the track, so this playlist was a real treat for me.
Hit the read more link for a list of where each track is from.
Hey guys. I trust you’re well this fine morning? So, The xx are Mercury winners, eh? I’d like to say I called that one after they featured on my very first playlist for Spotisfaction ;). In all honesty, though, I would have liked to have seen Foals win it, but that might just be because Foals â€“ Total Life Forever is one of my top 5 albums of 2010 so far. The xx are relentlessly hard workers and by all accounts pretty nice boys and girls, so fair play to them.
Today’s playlist is one of my own (I do like to get a bit self-indulgent every now and again, as you may have noticed!) and I hope you enjoy it.
Take it easy, Dave
This playlist is simply some of my favourite tracks at the moment. Very few of them are cutting-edge new, and very few of them are particularly challenging or esoteric. This is, probably, the most accurate representation I could come up with of my current taste in music (which, of course, is in a constant state of flux as I discover more and more stuff). I’ll quickly mention one or two particular tracks, and then let you get on with your day.
Afternoon, folks. We hope you’re enjoying the new website. We certainly are, that’s for sure. I loved Tumblr, but this new site is a breeze to use from an editing point of view, and hopefully it’s a lot easier to navigate, too. We’ve still got a list as long as our arms of things we’d like to implement, so you’ll see the site improve over time. Exciting stuffs!
Anyway, you’re probably a bit bored of me going on about the new website by now so let’s talk about today’s playlist.
Thom and I crafted this “Best Of” playlist a couple of months ago, and it contains our picks of our favourite tracks from the first few months of Spotisfaction’s life. We think it’s a fairly accurate representation of the diversity of playlists in those early days (and even to this day). Those of you who have been with us since the beginning, let us know if you’d have changed any of these selections!
We’re trying out a new method of displaying the tracklists for our playlists so that they’re more visible on the homepage, and you’re seeing the result of this on the right. Hit the “Tracklist” link to open the playlist.
Thanks again for everyone who has stuck with us since the early days of the site, and hi to anyone that’s new to the party. Thanks for your ongoing support.
Morning ladies and gents. Quick one for you – as well as one-off pieces, weâ€™re still looking for people that can regularly contribute to Spotisfaction to come and join our ever-growing team.
If youâ€™re the kind of person that prioritises buying albums or going to gigs over buying food, then come write a few reviews for us.
If most of your time is spent in a mammoth Spotify click-through blur, come be one of our playlist crafters.
If you spend all day on the Internet trawling music sites, then compile that stuff and chuck us some news.
If you spend more time looking through a camera viewfinder than your own eyeballs, be our lensman/woman.
If you fancy yourself less grammar Nazi, more grammar Hitler, come help us edit our content.
If you can view HTML and PHP like Neo views the Matrix, slip in as our resident grouchy coder.
If you think you may be able to help us out (even if you donâ€™t think youâ€™re much of a writer), please get in touch and weâ€™ll see if we can work something out. Our aim at the moment is to build a team of music-lovers and really concentrate on creating as much worthwhile content as we can. Whatever your skills, come and help us.
Todayâ€™s playlist is by me, and is a nostalgic trip through some of my favourite albums while I was at Uni. Yes, itâ€™s a bit emo, but Iâ€™m ok with that – we all go through phases! Iâ€™d like to think that my taste is a lot more eclectic these days ;)
Theme From Belle et Fou (Danny Krivit Edit) – Jazzanova
She Said What? (feat. J Live) – The Quantic Soul Orchestra
Clara Meets Atjazz – Nowhere (I Can Go) – Clara Hill
Honest (Jazzanovaâ€™s Honestly Yours Remix) – Metropolitan Jazz Afair

(I Got) Somebody New – Sonar Kollektiv Orchester
So Good Today – Ben Westbeech

Familiar Ground – The Cinematic Orchestra, Fontella Bass
In Harmony With The Elements – Lars Bartkuhn
Funky Goldman – SOIL & â€œPIMPâ€ SESSIONS
My playlist today is stuff Iâ€™ve been listening to for the last couple of weeks. Some of itâ€™s new, some of it is obscure. Hopefully all of it is funky and will bring a smile to your face.
Favourites include Jazzanova, who are a band Iâ€™ve got all the time in the world for. Theyâ€™ve recently stepped back into the studio, so itâ€™s only right theyâ€™ve got me salivating enough to feature them pretty heavily on my playlist in one form or another.
Iâ€™m also a pretty massive fan of Japanese jazz fiends, SOIL & â€œPIMPâ€ SESSIONS – honestly, if you even remotely like modern jazz/funk/soul, check them out. You wonâ€™t be disappointed. My favourite track of theirs is Mars(which would have been on this playlist if Iâ€™d not already featured it before).
A lot of credit for this playlist goes to an ex-housemate of mine, Ryan French, who got me into the majority of stuff that features. Big love, stranger. Still waiting for you to make us a playlist, thoughâ€¦ ;)
Safe, blood. Tomorrow evening, a bunch of us are going to Birminghamâ€™s O2 Academy for the first Spotisfaction Meet-up. Weâ€™re going to see Broken Social Scene and Sky Larkin, and itâ€™s going to be a fantabulous time. If youâ€™re in the area, I believe there are still tickets available – come along and Iâ€™ll buy you a beer (I originally typoâ€™d â€˜bearâ€™, which would have been a much better incentive).
In other news, if youâ€™d like to become a contributor to Spotisfaction, weâ€™re always looking for feature writers, reviewers and people that can comb the web to collate interesting music news. Weâ€™re also looking for an art director. If you want to get involved in our lovely little site, please get in touch. We still want your playlists and one-off articles or reviews if you donâ€™t want to sign a contract in blood / formally become part of the team, too!
Take it easy, sleazies. See you tomorrow night.
Above are a collection of songs by Broken Social scene, bands whose members comprise them, their support act on Saturday, and a small selection of artists on their Arts & Crafts label. Enjoy. And please buy a ticket to see these guys at some point on their tour if you can possibly make it.
Dave managed to spill soup all over his laptop. What an idiot. Of course, this means no moreÂ Spotisfaction updates from him until his machine dries out. Letâ€™s all take 5 minutes out to laugh at his misfortune.
Three is a prime number and todayâ€™s playlist is nothing if not prime. (However please note that there is no Primus on todayâ€™s playlist). See if you can spot the theme here. Answers on a postcard.
Today myself, David and our evil minion Kev decided to stick 10 tracks each onto a collaboration and share it with the world. Or at least the part of the world that cares.
Coming up next week weâ€™ve got a variety of fantastic guest playlists to stir things up a bit. Weâ€™re still waiting for a few submissions to trickle in (John Brobyn, Iâ€™m looking at you here) so hurry your pants and get them in.

As an aside, how do you all think Spotisfaction is going? As I stood on my faux-balcony this morning, having my post wake-up cigarette I wondered what the future had in store for this blog. Is radio dead? Are people so saturated with music choice that they have no idea what to listen to? What makes music journalists so damn snooty they think they can decree the success of otherwise of a band with their sub-par, horribly subjective and bland reviews? Iâ€™m getting the tickle that states something must be done. This summer, we have to take some kind of action. Please upload your ideas into my brain along with a bit of alcohol so I can get something moving.
Yo! Good afternoon, wondrous people. Day 2 of the week. This playlist was a cick-through experiment. Iâ€™d find a track, then try and find another similar artist by clicking through on Spotify, until I found something I really liked. It was pretty good fun, but itâ€™s got a rather random flow to it. Definitely helps you find stuff you wouldnâ€™t listen to otherwise, though.
A bit harangued at work today, so Iâ€™ll keep it brief and let the playlist speak for itself.
Morning kids! Monday. Gah-buh-der. What a lovely day to waste sitting indoors, staring mindlessly at a computer screen. Hooray for me!
Todayâ€™s playlist is a combination of songs by bands Iâ€™ve been meaning to check out for a while, some Last.fm recommendations, and some songs by bands Iâ€™ve really liked from other playlists. Itâ€™s got a weird flow to it and is probably a bit more indie than the stuff Iâ€™d normally listen to, but I hope you enjoy regardless.
Dave has returned to Spotisfaction Towers, one more exam behind him. Well done to Dave for passing yesterdays hardship. To celebrate, weâ€™ve created a joint playlist. The first half is largely quite upbeat. The second half is more chilled. A special mention goes to the track by The Futureheads â€œDecent Days And Nightsâ€. Two reasons. Firstly, tonight we are going to see the Futureheads. The second reason is â€œDecent Days And Nightsâ€ is the name of the Cheltenham Underground weekend extravaganza. More information on this is here, and no doubt there will be further news posts over the weekend about it.
Anyway, enjoy today. If people could start leaving some feedback the world will be abetter place. See you all Monday.
So, Thursday, we meet again. Thom â€˜wroteâ€™ me a song (read: stole it from Eagles Of Death Metal), and I wanted to share it with you all:
Oh oh oh David Prowse

This is a rock â€˜nâ€™ roll news post I am doing for you which is called â€œThom writes the news post for Dave. Hit it, Brendanâ€.
Like an eloquant steam roller I have taken it upon myself to jump in and write on Davidâ€™s behalf today. Before I fly wildly out of orbit and into the sun, letâ€™s talk playlist.
Currently, weâ€™re waiting for a few more submissions to come through before running any more guest mixes. I canâ€™t remember if I actually told Dave that or not, but I guess when he reads this he will know. I told him he was running todayâ€™s at about 10AM today, so he had to knock this one out pretty quick as a result. Heâ€™s a sweet young thing, isnâ€™t he? Still, itâ€™s a good â€˜un. [Editorâ€™s note: Truth. This man speaks it]
A quick rundown – I think if there was a war after the break up of At The Drive In, Dave would be in Camp Sparta and I would be on the planet Mars Volta. However, I have never been one to let violent conflict get in the way of listening to great music (and letâ€™s face it, listening to The Mars Volta is akin to a violent and horrific assault on your ears in the best possible way) and as a result I fully endorse the choice of Sparta. Plus, â€œWhile Oceana Sleepsâ€ is also a fantastic track. [Editorâ€™s note: I love The Mars Volta too, Iâ€™d say I prefer them to Sparta, but this track makes my ears bleed pre-cum]
I put an Asobi Seksu track on my last dreampop/shoegaze playlist and I know for a fact that David is a huge fan. If you missed them, check out â€œIâ€™m Happy But You Donâ€™t Like Meâ€ as it is a good indication of the pure aural wonderment that is Asobi Seksu.
I remember The Cramps. I remember â€œFeverâ€. I think this was on The Hangover soundtrack. Which was, letâ€™s me honest, a fantastic soundtrack. This track now officially reminds me of the worst kind of morning after revenge of the night before. I think Iâ€™m missing a tooth.
I really like the work of Ellen Allien. I have yet to hear this particular track with Apparat remixed by Ben Klock, so Iâ€™m very keen to shoot it up and have a listen. You should be too, David usually has spot on taste in these affairs.
The last one Iâ€™m going to pick out is DJ Food – Dark Lady (Skint Mix). The original is pure Ninja Tune classic. In fact, I believe DJ Food is playing Cheltenham Jazz Festival this year, Iâ€™d recommend you check it out.
All in all then, something for everyone on here. Unless youâ€™re deaf. In which case you get to read this instead.
Little red top English girl, Spilling out filth but oh so well spoken, Itâ€™s raining but I canâ€™t even notice that right now Life isnâ€™t too short for a little rock and roll.
Okay, we have impact. Now, go forth and enjoy today. I will be updating tomorrow with a special â€œJo has a birthday, Thom has a day off, bank holiday shirt lifting extravaganzaâ€ playlist. Later good people of Earth.
Steamrollers canâ€™t jump. Thom (From the Desk of David Prowse).
To all the kids with
Headgear and braces and freckly faces
Glasses and acne and foster care families
Eating disorders who sit on the corners
Bikes with a basket and pants with elastic
Retards and spastics and Star Trek fanatics
And guys in gymnastics with lives that are tragic
Chess club contenders with speculative genders
Friends they imagine with matching pyjamas
God loves us all

Iâ€™ve not got much of a blurb today, to be perfectly honest (fun fact: aboveâ€™s lyrics were â€˜donatedâ€™ by Thom when I told him I was blurbless). Iâ€™m going to spend the day watching the leaders debate (which, stupidly, I managed to miss last night) and trying to imagine Iâ€™m in hawaii like that fat dude in Street Fighter: The Movie when heâ€™s being whipped by that other dude with a whip. Sweet whipping action, whip dude.
All Iâ€™ll say is that Iâ€™m not 100% happy with the first few tracks of the playlist, and given more time Iâ€™d have changed them. Stick with it, though, as it gets much much better.
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: The new Bonobo album is really, really good. Check it out: Bonobo â€“ Black Sands.
Hey hey! Thursday is the new Friday (well, this week anyway). The sun is shining, the weather is sweet, and it kinda makes me want to move my little olâ€™ dancing feet.
Tomorrow, as you well know, is a bank holiday. Since weâ€™re not at work, weâ€™ve decided to run a collaborative playlist on the theme of â€œGuilty Pleasuresâ€. You can find the playlist HERE – get adding your tracks, and weâ€™ll publish it tomorrow. Weâ€™re expecting the demand to be pretty high for this bad-boy, so try not to add more than 2 or 3 tracks, otherwise itâ€™ll be far too big (huh huh thatâ€™s what she said).

This playlist was my attempt at a kind of lo-fi, downtempo mix, book-ended with a few tracks to get the blood flowing again (I hope you got that from the title). A couple of these tracks were inspired by an evening listening to various SomaFM stations, some of them are personal favourites that I just had to find space for, and a couple more were picked almost at random from my â€œmust play these nextâ€ list (and shoehorned in as best as I could manage).
M83â€™s â€œTeen Angstâ€ is a wicked track, in my opinion. Someone described them to me as a combination of the best elements of Ulrich Schnauss, Joy Division and My Bloody Valentine, and Iâ€™d say that was a pretty succint way of describing them. This track in particular exudes funk and makes me want to strap on my dancinâ€™ wellies. Better way to start a playlist? Havenâ€™t found it yet.
I have a hardon for Telefon Tel Aviv. This track was the very first one I added to the collaborative playlist Thom and I created that sparked the idea and kick-started Spotisfaction. Good times. Good times indeed.
I know a couple of people have submitted playlists with tracks by The Postal Service, so hereâ€™s Jimmy Tamborello (one half of The Postal Service along with Ben Gibbard from Death Cab For Cutie) working under the his solo pseudonym, Dntel. Electro-pop? Yes. Good? Very. Start with his album â€œLife Is Full of Possibilitesâ€ if you like this track.
Man, I properly heart The Album Leaf. Not much more to say about this one.
I am going out to buy â€œThe Humbucking Coilâ€ by B. Fleischmann, and I recommend you do the same. â€œFirst Timesâ€ is little stabby guitar notes in triple time, with perfect organ droning. The rest of the album has been stuck on replay for the whole evening. Annoying, really, when youâ€™re trying to come up with a playlist and all you want to do is listen to one artist. If thatâ€™s not a good enough recommendation, I donâ€™t know what is.
When I first heard Jon Hopkinâ€™s â€œLight Through The Veinsâ€ I got goosebumps. Itâ€™s a heart-warming, almost europhic track and as such was pretty much perfect for the mid-section of the playlist. Itâ€™s basic – just one chord progression for the entire song, but his layering is so subtle that it never gets old. Bliss.
â€œPristine Boobiesâ€ by Black Mold. Because I have them. Check â€˜em out, I give you permission to grope.
I donâ€™t think â€œNot So Fast, Youâ€™re Hurting Meâ€ by I Broke My Robot really fits into this playlist, if Iâ€™m completely honest. Probably a bit too glitchy. I couldnâ€™t get rid of it, though, cos I smile every time I hear the robotic voice that graces various breaks in this track. Tee hee, robots.
The last track of todayâ€™s playlist, Doctor P, was a recommendation from Rob da Bankâ€™s Twitter feed. Honestly, I have a lot of love for Mr. da Bank, so anything he recommends is worth a listen as far as Iâ€™m concerned. And, to be honest, I wasnâ€™t disappointed.
Good morning, Thursday! Thursday is the fourth day of the week according to the ISO 8601 international standard adopted in most western countries. In countries that use the Sunday-first convention and in the Judeo-Christian calendar it is the fifth day of the week. It falls between Wednesday and Friday. FACTS, PEOPLE – WE DELIVER!
Todayâ€™s playlist is courtesy of moi. Itâ€™s pretty funky, I think, but somewhat obscure. Give it a go, and let me know what you think. Next time Iâ€™m giving you some random lo-fi electro, so be warnedâ€¦
Remember – we have a gorgeous new commenting system. Feel free to connect with us, yo.
Ready for the pretentious bit?: I wanted to do something completely different with this playlist. It started mainly as a challenge to myself – I wanted to put together a playlist of tracks Iâ€™d not heard, from genres I donâ€™t pay enough attention to. Most of my playlists seem to be pretty indie or electro, so this was designed to take me out of my comfort zone. I think it was a success – Iâ€™ve gotten into a couple of really awesome artists off the back of this one playlist, and hey what more can you ask for than that?
I really love Aloe Blaccâ€™s â€œI Need A Dollarâ€. Letâ€™s be honest, itâ€™s pretty freaking catchy, and hey, I feel the guyâ€™s pain. I just found out itâ€™s the theme tune to â€œHow To Make It In Americaâ€, which is a new comedy drama by the producers of â€œEntourageâ€ – might check it out on the basis that the soundtrack to the series is going to be pretty awesome. Followed immediately by Blackalicious, I really get a summery vibe from this section of the playlist. Nice weather, cold cider and good company. Summer canâ€™t come quickly enough, really.
Serge Gainsbourg. Iâ€™ve never heard any of his tracks. I know, I know, I really suck. So, felt I needed to rectify that. Had a bit of a mammoth sesh and this is one of the tracks that jumped out at me. I think it sets us up nicely for another artist Iâ€™ve not really heard much of (except for his work with Massive Attack). Gil Scott-Heronâ€™s poem about the Moody Park Rebellion is somewhat of an odd choice for this playlist, I think, but itâ€™s powerful stuff.
Jazzanova are a band I have a crapload of respect for. Iâ€™d never heard this track, but was glancing through their catalogue for a corker and found this Madlib remix. Now, I love Madlib, and I love Jazzanova. Result. Lovely, laid-back strings with a sweeping buildup.
Miles Davis. â€˜Nuff said.
One track I just had to shoehorn into this playlist was Nouvelle Vagueâ€™s awesome cover of â€œLove Will Tear Us Apartâ€. I couldnâ€™t find anything to transition from, though. Solution? Music-guru James Cook came to the rescue and suggested the wonderful Animals As Leaders as a perfect segue. As he quite rightly pointed out, the rest of Animals As Leaders self-titled album would feel completely out of place in this playlist, but this one track in particular is just right. Ta, dude.
Cheers kids, hope you enjoy.
