Spit your sparkle on someone new. Fave Tunes July/ August 2008

Sparkle Spit – Je Suis Animal Elegant Norwegian spooked-up shivery dreampop

You On The Run - Black Angels Turn vol. to max. Nod head at way this sounds like a shell-shocked version of the Doctor Who theme.

Machines - Lothar and the Hand People Sounded weirdly familiar when heard on Stuart Maconie’s Freakzone (essential Sunday afternoon listening)

You Made Me Realise (live) – My Bloody Valentine Loudness takes on exciting new forms

My Love - Asteroid #4 Drifty pastoraldelia for green days. Can’t wait to get hold of the splendidly-titled album ‘These Flowers of Ours: A Treasury of Witchcraft and Devilry’

The Waves Crash In – Spiritualized
Frolicsome – like Disney bluebirds fluttering in cutesy patterns around your happy face.

While You're Away - Fovea Hex Stillness, solar flare, Clodagh Simonds of Mellow Candle!

SOL ’07 - Wooden Shjips
Sprawling, squalling, scribbly droning

Keep Your Head – The See See Psychedelic Jangle-pop!

Water Curses – Animal Collective Running excitably through meadows, clambering up trees and falling out of them again

Time Will Show The Wiser – Fairport Convention Before they went well folky, Fairport came over all Byrdsy

Use Your Other Head – The Beep Seals
Sunshine melting harmonies. The whole album is perfect summer soundtrack fodder.

Kuad 9873 - Ben Nash Brrr, deeply creepy spooky-psych in album packaging so ace, me and the record shop man had a jolly good discussion about it.

Psychomania Burial Scene Hurrah for BBC 4’s B-movie season which brought this cinematic masterwork to my attention. The hippy/acid-folk biker funeral scene and accompanying soundtrack is the best bit:
