We're all going on a summer holiday

This here blog has been a bit rubbish recently, hasn’t it? Too many dammed YouTube videos, not enough reviews of exciting new electronica LPs. Mostly, it’s been down to connect_icut/CSAF-related busyness, which is a pretty good reason, wouldn’t you say? Sadly, it’s going to get worse before it gets better. But this time it’s all down to a family vacation, which is an even better reason, wouldn’t you agree?

Not good enough, you say? Well then, how about some links to notable recent posts that you may have missed?

Fennesz – Szampler review

Classic era Fall compilations

The Miracles Club – an appreciation

Sure, it’s not really summer yet but some of us are taking our summer vacations now and you do seem to be getting rather impatient. So, you can download the whole thing by clicking on this link right here or simply listen to individual songs by clicking on the track-listing below (except for the mysterious first track – you’ll have to grab the whole mix to find out what that is!)
