Tonight’s top new tune was ‘La Invasión De Los Cuerpos’ by Refree. The album came out when I was on DJing hiatus and it was lovely to finally be able to play it out. Click here for a review. Anyone who’s a fan of Ben Folds, Randy Newman, Leonard Cohen or Van Dyke Parks should check out Refree’s stuff. It’s definitely going to be one of my top album’s of 2005.

Adam Faith
Adam Faith, a proper popstar pinup

The best old tune was ‘What Do You Want’ by Adam Faith. Although often dismissed as Holly-lite, this is a gem of a pop song, rolling along on spritely pizzicato strings and a wonderfully yelpy vocal from Faith. Top work!
