A few of us watched Seperado! at the weekend in the IFI - it's a movie made by Gruff from the Super Furry Animals. It documents his road trip around Argentina as he plays some shows and goes in search of a long lost Welsh cousin. Turns out a load of Welsh people emigrated there in the 1880s and there are whole towns with Welsh names and people speaking Welsh, which is kinda bizarre. It's a pleasure to watch as he drives about in amazing scenery, puts on shows to rooms of polite bemused locals while donning his power ranger helmet and generally acts as amazingly weird as usual. The soundtrack is full a bunch of his solo stuff too. Swoon.
If you are in any way of fan of SFA or Gruff (how can you not be?) I'd highly recommend checking this out.
Quality video for LCD's track 'Home' - following the trials and tribulations of a robot as he makes his way down the seedy path of fame and excess. We've all been there. (But my KT-80 robot costume was better) Directed by Rick Darge at funwunce.
I am becoming increasingly enamoured with GRUM, a scottish producer I came across by accident on Soundcloud - any remixes of his I've heard are ace (more below) and he has an album of his own stuff called Heartbeats out. This is "Through The Night" - the video is a pretty amusing depiction of an 80's style bromance between two cops and the tune is deadly - on a similar buzz to Chromeo's 'Don't Turn the Lights on' which is no bad thing. Check it:
And this is a brilliant remix he did of Everything Everything's tune 'My Kz Ur Bf'; it's on that Aeroplane July mix I posted before and is SAVAGE:

You can listen to more of Everything Everything here: (they seem kinda nuts but in a good way)
So this video is a bit strange but as mentioned on here before, Chromeo's first single 'Don't Turn The Lights On' from their new album Business Casual is flippin' deadly - and after seeing them live over in Lovebox/London the other week I already have tickets for their November 4th Tripod gig. DO IT. If you haven't seen them live you are missing out.

Also worth checking out is Mek's awesome 'Reasons to be Cheerfull' mix. Gets steady rotation in climaXXX towers; some classic 80s tacks and fine scratching.
More Mek here.
Dj Mek - Reasons To Be Cheerful by deejaymek
Word to your moms: there is some awesome shiznit in the window of the Irish Cancer Society shop on Camden Street - the window is full of old Fleetwood Mac and Talking Heads LPs and musicy things - going on sale Saturday July 3rd. But continuing my policy of being mesmerised by weird Michael Jackson merchandise I saw an old school Bubbles the Chimp(ly Sailor) toy with a story and song cassette, available inside the shop. (All in its original packaging!)
It's 60 of your earth dollars so I sure as hell can't afford it but if any of you clowns purchase it I'd like to come round and listen to the sing along cassette with you and Bubbles. But not in a weird way. (definitely in a weird way...)
This wiki article on Michael and Bubbles is highly amusing; apparently Bubbles tried to top himself in 2003 but rest easy: Since the closure of Dunn's facility in 2004, Bubbles has been kept at the Center for Great Apes in Wauchula, Florida, where he is said to enjoy painting and listening to flute music.
Check out more of Michael's Pets here. (That sounds pretty creepy but I assure you it's just pictures of nice toys and not like, that dance guy Wade Whatsisface or Macauley Culkin or anything - shudder)
Came across this by accident the other day, it's another quality mix from Belgian duo Aeroplane. This one is for It's All Gone Pete Tong's Essential Mix and the 500th edition of. At first glance the track list didn't look up to much but then I clocked Les Rhythm Digitales - Sometimes on there (one of my fave songs ever), then I spotted the dub version of Don't You Want Me Baby I thought hang on there! Then I spotted Friendly Fires -Paris and thought 'well, well, well'. Finally when I saw this whopper by Goldfrapp I let out a Grrrr noise. None of the above come close to what I did when I actually heard this mix though - it really is a monster. Go forth and stream from Aeroplane Mixcloud or below - (you can find my account here btw) or download from Discobelle here.

I'm on a big Steve Martin buzz at the moment so expect more KT-80 cliporamas coming soon.
I very boldly mp3iiified this and can't stop listening to it. Not sure who Acorn Morocco is but he's from Jersey and the nerd in me loves a name with sweet alliteration AND assonance. This is quality. Nice summer vibe video too.
