Stereo (1):

What we are listening to and feeling this week… thank god it’s Friday…

1. Boys Noize - Oi Oi Oi: Aggressive dirty electro from a guy who usually shares the bill with heavyweights like Soulwax, Felix and other left of the centre dance DJs and producers. Although reminiscent of early Daft Punk this is nothing new, but still working casting your ear over.

2. Various Artists - Ibiza Rocks:
A 2 CD set featuring acts who’ve graced Ibiza Rocks the annual indie festival come beach party in San Antonio Bay.

3. Bob Sinclar – Live at a Playboy Mansion: A 2 CD compilation mixed by French jock Bob Sinclar (World Hold On, The Beat Goes On) which is Mixmag’s compilation of the month (October). Except 4/4 house beats, in a typical defected style.

4. Foo Fighters – Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace:
Do we need to look any further than Q Magazine who proclaim “Foo Fighters have delivered their best album. This surely is their moment”. Get on board for Alt-rock of stadium-sized proportions.

5. Mia – Kala: Bold, brilliantly worldly beats from Britain’s own ‘political pop star’. Sometimes it doesn't need a huge review.

6. Hard-Fi – Once Upon a Time in The West:
Rousing rock sing-alongs including the awesome Suburban Knights.... You know who you are.

7. Justice – The cross: We’ve mentioned this before in our CD Inspire section, but this is still a very special album for us, a little hard at times, and nothing ground breaking, but still doing it. Think Daft punk vs Micheal Jackson vs Shandy Sandwich and you’re almost there, but not quite.
