Pettie Bass

It’s the dark cold days before X-mas. I’m a person who really needs a bit of sun to feel happy or at least at ease but right now the sun is as easy to find as easy bank loans and safe shares.
I usually don’t feel very happy then but the last days were pretty awful. Worse than usual. I was very uncomfortable, feeling totally empty, discouraged and dispirited. A broken man.
That’s why I took a day off from work (no mail, no telephone,…) just to relax, to give myself a treat and get back in shape. Catch some extra sleep, drink a awful lot of healthy tasty fruit shakes (like for instance mint+coconut milk+limes+honey), do some sports (went to a new fitness gym for free) and to finish things off, a relaxing chilling stay in a sauna, a hot tub of water and a nice meal. No massage, that would have been too much of the good stuff.

Now I feel all fresh again… tired though, but happily tired. A bit high even or is that the wine I drank? So how do we celebrate this renovation? With music off course.

Triggerfinger – Soon (acoustic studio versio '08) The second track that I post from Triggerfinger but they’re getting better and better. I really like this unplugged version of one of the best son gs on their last album. It took me a while to get this.
Larkin Grimm – Ride That Cyclone This album is really somethin’. I would/could post every single track because they’re all great but that’s against my principles or maybe just one track at the time :)
Emiliana Torrini – Jungle Drum
Eagles of Death Metal – I Wannabe in LA Don’t we all? Talking about LA. Lykke Li & Bon Iver doing 'Dance Dance Dance' in LA

The Sedan Vault – Unidentified Flying Subjects A local Mars Volta rip-off but still a nice tune
David Byrne and Brian Eno – Strange Overtones After 30 years back on track just like in the good old days. This is a free sample from a new album
Eero Johannes – We Could Be Skweeeroes a recent e-music pick and a quite good one
DJ Mehdi – Pocket Piano (Joachim remix) The best remix so far
Hudson Mohawke – Overnight I think/hope that this guy is going to be next year’s revelation. I picked this up from bleep and it’s truly awesome… promising, can’t wait to hear more where this is coming from
Hudson Mohawke – Polkadot Blues
Loco Dice – Carthago
John Tejada – Raindrops (Original Mix) a new Tejada album is always great news
John Tejada – Turning Point (Original Mix)
Butch – Amelie
Lützenkirchen – All That Jazz (popof remix 01) I’m probably going to see this guy spin at Petrol this weekend. I’m quite curious after hearing that final Berlin party anthem 3 Tage Wach.

Mary Jane Girls – All Night Long A bad habit I know but I can’t let this pass without mixing in some black funk and disco
Rene & Angela – I'll Be Good All-time favourite killer groove, second entry on these pages but a better rip this time (from CD).
Rick James – Ghetto Life one of his best and grooviest songs

I watched this a dozen times by now and I still find this to be hillariously cute
