Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

This week has seen Putin unleash his new weapon against the West in the shape of the merciless »Beast From The East«. Of course, there is no better way to last out a snow storm than with a warm blankie and some good tunes. Therefore, this week I will be singing the praises of some new records which are not only shockingly good, they will make you feel all cosy inside. By JOHN BITTLES

This week I will be highlighting some albums which may just make your hearts go aflutter and your feet do little leaps of joy. With Winter preparing to nestle down for a good long rest there is a string of new records coming out which will put a spring in anybody’s step. We have some lush house sounds from Strictly Rhythm and John Tejada, the disco-tinged indie of Franz Ferdinand, the lovelorn acoustics from Robert Earl Thomas, and lots more. By JOHN BITTLES

The Lure Of Another Day: An Interview With Scott Gilmore

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

Sometimes, when everything seems too frantic and stressful, what we all need is something to take the sting out of life. Scott Gilmore is one of a rare breed of producers who makes music perfect for this. Using a myriad of influences and genres, his songs blend elements of ambient, krautrock, pop, library music, house, funk and more to create a rich kaleidoscope of sound. Light and airy, yet containing gentle, club pleasing beats his debut release from last year, Subtle Vertigo, has a timeless quality which seems to enrich your very soul. By JOHN BITTLES

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

As we’ve started our journey into 2018 it seems only fitting to look back and pay tribute to the great music which excited our ears over the past year. While it seemed as if most of the world went mad in 2017, there was at least a constant supply of great new music which made getting out of bed and engaging with humanity seem worthwhile.

Lost Tapes and Lush House Grooves: An Interview With Swayzak

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

Twenty years is a long time in dance music. Just ask all those ’next big things‘ who took a tumble, got lost in a cloud of coke, or found themselves forgotten and discarded by the world at large. To stay relevant in an ever shifting and competitive environment is no mean feat. Yet, over the last two decades, David Brown’s Swayzak project has made this achievement seem as easy as enraging a Daily Mail reader. By JOHN BITTLES
