  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 16/3/11

    Tonight’s best new track was ‘Super Duper Rescue Heads,’ Deerhoof’s poppiest track to date. This song is pure sunshine dappling your face through leaves, butterflies flapping around like nutters and tiny dogs yapping shopping lists. The best old track was The Boo Radley’s ‘Lazy Day.’ Another slice of summer in a pop song, I used…

  • Bzangy Groink 29/9/10

    Tonight’s best new track was ‘Crazy For You’ by Best Coast. One minute and fifty seconds of swoonsome delight, this track comes from a similarly languid and sun-drenched album. Check it out! The best old track was Marching Band‘s ‘For Your Love.’ God, what a perfect, catchy pop song! Breezy splendour. The Vaselines – Such…

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 15/9/10

    Another very, very busy night with loads of requests, good good! The best new tune was ‘MY KZ, UR BF’ by Everything Everything. Really, this isn’t the right place to go into how much I love this song. It’s… magical. Maybe I’ll write about it more here, maybe not! The album reminds me of XTC…

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 1/9/10

    The best new track tonight was Reso’s ‘Armored Core.’ Recently, I went stargazing. If I could travel to the stars I was admiring, I think it’d be in a massive, shuddering spaceship that can only be described adequately by this track. But don’t take my work for it – have a click on the vid…

  • Hangover Lounge DJing Playlist, 22/8/10

    Only a teeny-weeny playlist, this one as it was just in between bands playing: The Hidden Cameras – A Miracle Boards of Canada – 03 Olson (Version 3) John Barry – The Ipcress File The Sweptaways – Kalla Mig de Montevert – The Ghost The Orchids – Long Drawn Sunday Night my little airport –…

  • HDIF DJing Playlist 21/8/10

    Pic by Ian Watson Thanks again to Ian HDIF for inviting me to DJ at his lovely, lovely club night. I had a blast and it was nice to slip in a bit of Nas and Set Your Goals in amongst the indiepopness! 🙂 This is what I played: Allo Darlin’ – Kiss Your Lips…

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 18/8/10

    Umm… how can I say this? I deleted the playlist before saving it when I was DJing at HDIF this weekend… 🙁 Ah well, I’m sure the world can miss one of my playlists in a fortnight without crumbling. What I can tell you is this: the top new song I played tonight was ‘Silver…

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 21/7/10

    Woohoo, another busy night with *loads* of requests which I managed to honour as well as cramming in as much new stuff as possible! The best new song tonight was ‘What Are You Waiting For?’ by Broken Links. When I first downloaded and clicked play on Broken Links, I had no idea what would leap…

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 7/7/10

    No one top new track tonight because instead there were three tracks from the fantastic new album by Huoratron. Last year, Vitalic made it to the topspot in my best albums list. I have a feeling that Huoratron’s mix of stupid, stupid noises, slamming, horrible beats and the sound of seagulls being shredded is going…

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 16/6/10

    Woah, a while ago so let me give my memory cells a poke… The best new track was Tame Impala’s ‘Lucidity.’ Sea breezes and clear, moonlit nights – that’s what this wonderfully dreamy track by psychpop lovers Tame Impala sounds like. Mmmm. The best old track was Casey Jone’s ‘If You’re Smoking In Here You…

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 2/6/10

    A very quiet one tonight, hence the shorter playlist! The best new track was ‘When You Were Young’ by Discover America. Twiddly, melodic indie, if you like GBV, SHTYM or other singalong US indie, I think you should check it out. The best old track was ‘Where’s My Money’ by TC. I had to play…

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 20/5/10

    Best new track tonight was easy – MC Esoteric‘s ‘Waxing On Decepticon’ is pure, thefty genius! If you like the idea of Le Tigre with some fucked-up rapping all over ’em, you’ll love this. Please, please check out his new album. Just for the Gary Numan shit near the end. Esoteric, I salute you, you…

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 21/4/10

    Woah, sorry for the long break before posting this up, I’ve just finished my first year at Uni, essays all over the shop! 🙂 Trying to remember back… that night’s top new track was ‘Sooner If You Let Me’ by His Statue Falls. If you like shouty metalness + ravey synths, I think you’ll love…

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 7/4/10

    Woah! Last Bzangy was rammed, tonight was dead – wtf? Ah well, them’s the vicissitudes of DJing! 🙂 Tonight’s top new tune was ‘Secret Sounds’ by Sheffield beat combo Screaming Maldini. You couldn’t get get a more summery, singalong indiepop song than this. Even without the kookaburra references. Check ’em out if you’ve ever sung…

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 24/3/10

    Another busy Bzangy and hence loads more requests. This time for Tarkan, Saves The Day (yaaay!), Cap’n Jazz and Andrew Gold (double yaay!). Now, that’s what I call discerning music taste! The best new tune tonight is one that I’ve had in the car on repeat for the last couple of weeks. In ‘Drugstore Diet’,…

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 10/3/10

    Woo – loads of requests tonight: Russian Circles, MSTRKRFT, Refused, Venetian Snares. But I still managed to cram in craploads of brand-new music as well. The best from the new was Swanton Bombs‘ ‘Who’s Asking.’ I love the rawness of this track, I love the middle bit guitar riffery. There’s a lot to be said…

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 24/2/10

    Tonight’s best new track was ‘Three Card Brag’ by Diversion Tactics. And this is just one song from an album of pure gold. It makes me happy there’s already such a raw, solid hip hop album this early in the year. Sooo good. The best old track was ‘Inertiatic Esp’ by twiddly funsters The Mars…

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 10/2/10

    Best new choon tonight was ‘Microviolence’ by Aloha. Very sweet, very flowing lyrical altrock/indie/pick your genre. Check it out if you like things that are guitarry and singy! The best old track was Cylob’s ‘Flicklife.’ This haunting tinkle of electronicness always manages to make me feel wistful in the same way bits of Satie do.…

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 27/1/10

    Tonight’s best new tune was by the luvverly Ginger Ninja and it was ‘Crying Shame.’ Check out their debut album, ‘Wicked Map.’ If you like Friendly Fires or Errors or any other dancey, indieishpop, I think you’ll like these gorgeous Danes. The best old track was ‘Ride The Red Rhythm’ by Like A Tim. I’m…

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 13/1/10

    Still feels *slightly* weird seeing ’10’ in the date up above! :-O The best new track was Ghettosock’s ‘Role Models,’ which you can listen to for free by clicking here. It’s a catchy track, perversely so in that the lyrics veer into intense territory. Great hip hop! (And he’s also giving you a free track…
