  1. Love this latest offering Alistair, particularly Parachute – Thee Lakesiders ( brilliant retro feel and there’s a great promo vid as well); Whisper – Still Corners; Stjärnor som – Testbild! ( not heard of at all so a real joy…oh, and another Alpaca Sports track….still the wonderful same as ever. Plus a new Jayhawks album to investigate. Rack this one up to a Vuelta mountain stage win for you!


  2. Cheers Rob. Enjoy digging into the back catalogues of both Still Corners and Testbild! All well worth checking out. Let me know if you want anything shared 😉 New Jayhawks LP is good. Starts strongly, tails off a little bit but ends brilliantly with this lovely cut. At its best it all really reminds me of the very wonderful Apartments. As for the Vuelta mountain stage win? It’s the only way I’ll ever win one so I’ll take it 😉
