MUSIC WEEK #11

Life, oh life. Oh life. That's from a song isn't it? Just popped into my head. I started writing this damn ages ago so that song is no longer in my head. Do you know what is in my head? Animal Crossing music, that's what.

Sooo, this week there's been some fun music floating around. The flow of time depletes, runs aground on the shores, and music flows out of it, like when all those motorbikes and other things were nicked from the containers of the MSC Napoli when it "ran into trouble" on the southwest coast of England. A crucial bit of English history for you there.

This week I also became a contributor for Dummy magazine. I have already written about Yosi Horikawa's album and also a remix of IKEBANA's 'Alone'. Movin' on up innit.

Here's what I have liked-and-had-time-to-write-about these last 6 or whatever days.

So there you have it.

My favourite?
