The Listening Club - 30th August 2015


Hope you're all doing fine - Happy August Bank Holiday to UK folks also, hope that you're making the most of it already, looks like gloomy weather may well dampen any bonus activities you had planned - Although having said that it's been a glorious day here in Amsterdam, despite rain forecast, so you never know, and it has indeed now reached that point in the North European summer where any additional good weather needs to be celebrated to the fullest wherever possible. It's our duty, it really is...

On planet #lc last week wor @nessiest was in the chair and dared to go for a cherished sound from her homeland in the shape of Fat Freddy's Drop's debut platter "Based On A True Story", which got folks bobbing and chilling in equal measures, so it seemed. Thanks to Ness for the pick, and for flipping the frisbee across to @cdrose_writer, who will be back next week with his pick...

But now, maybe the mellowness of the above had something to do with it, here comes the #sleepyvortex - 19 selections, all pertaining to the head-hitting-pillow section of the day. Will they all send us softly into dreamtime? Only one way to find out...

Direct download is here, and the mixcloud is here!

See you at 8pm BST (GMT+1)...
