    TINY MAGNETIC PETS FIVE-TRACK SHUFFLE

    It's hard not to ignore a band when they describes its sounds as “Kinda Krautrock meets Bowie in Berlin jamming with Stereolab, Massive Attack, Goldfrapp & Kraftwerk.” They've just released the extremely catchy 'Goodbye Goodbye Goodbye' single, which could easily cause you to wear out your shoe from tapping your foot along to (songs like this should come with a health warning). After much deliberation, the members of Tiny Magnetic Pets have come up with this week's Five-Track Shuffle.

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – ALIAS EMPIRE & WILLIAM ADAMSON

    The band that we once knew as Dry Couty are back with their second album. ‘Safety In Numbers’ certainly doesn’t hide in the crowd; it’s a big step forward from what was and still is an acomplished debut album. The tracks on this album have the potential to be immense live.

    ‘Under An East Coast Moon’ is an album by Rob Gallagher (Gilles Peterson’s long-time collaborator) under the name William Adamson. You may remember Gallagher from his days with the much-loved Galliano. People that like to pigeonhole music are going to struggle with this one; in musical terms ‘Under An East Coast Moon’ is very much a free spirit.
