New advert from Adam & Eve for that bastion of British retailing – John Lewis. Really lovely advert and great choice of song ‘She’s Alway’s A Woman’ covered by ex-Guillemot Fyfe Dangerfield. Can’t help think the advert should feature the bankruptcy that would eschew from a lifetime of buying stuff from John Lewis or maybe a funeral with a Jonelle coffin?
DJ Z-Trip & The Field (not to be confused with Field Music) are mostly what I have been listening to lately. One, and I wouldn’t disagree with this, is considered to be a pioneer in the art of mash-ups. The other is called Axel and a Swedish electronic musician, although I think musical genius would be more apt. Both are excellent. DJ Z-Trip’s Obama mix is sixty minutes of sharp samples, cuts and beats mashed up with speeches and snippets from the great man himself. ‘Sound of Light’ from The Field is a sixty minute long, four track EP (fifteen ish minutes per track) inspired by a stay in Stockholm’s Nordic Light Hotel. It is a luxuriant piece of electronica and at only 79p per track from itunes a bit of a bargain. The Field – ‘From Here We Go Sublime’, which is a firm fixture on my iPod is also a must listen if electronica is your thing.
