Everything Else Has Gone Wrong

Not another lament on the current state of South Africa.

No, the latest single (and title track of the new album) from London band Bombay Bicycle Club:

Interesting single take video featuring the speedy demise of lead singer Jack Steadman.

Apparently, music is our only salvation. But I’m not going to try to analyse the deeper meanings hidden in here; I just like the track.


Go find it – and a lot of other great stuff – on my Inspired By 6 Spotify playlist.

The Mother We Share

One of those songs that tickled my fancy when it came out, but then got forgotten until Lauren Laverne played it on the 6 Music Breakfast Show this morning while I was being pestered for a share of my biltong by the beagle.

It’s Chvrches big hit (you may remember them from this cover of the Arctic Monkeys Do I Wanna Know?), and it had slipped my mind just how good it is. Gorgeous.

The electronica is good. Unsurprisingly, I am there for the electronica. But equally, there’s an acoustic version here, which also has its merits. Many of them.

I’ve added the radio edit to the 6000 miles… Inspired by 6 Spotify Playlist, which you should be following and enjoying.
