So! As the post suggests, it’s my birthday week so forgive me for doing a little less work than usual.
Three tunes to share with you this week starting with someone who’s now got my full attention after this track. Jamie Lidell introduces ‘What A Shame’ from his forthcoming self-titled EP released on Warp Records. Think Cee-Lo Green but a bit whackier.
The Flaming Lips have been working on some abstract work. It’s labelled as ‘The Flaming Lips with…’ but it’s really the band trying to give as much exposure to the featuring artist as possible. Linear Downfall – 21st Century Schizoid Man providing a nice direction after their work with pop queen Ke$ha.
And lastly for this week a Yalls remix of Blackbird Blackbird for you. One of DIY’s tracks on play this week.
If you like any of the music you hear check out Alive And Amplified on DIY Radio every Thursday from 10pm.
