Never heard them before today but Margot's single Coffee Stained Cars has been on repeat.

A lovely slice of dream pop meets The SMIFFS with echoes of Bradford's Skin Storm.

Extremely enjoyable bit of posh lass gibberish.

I decided to check out this Jandek fella, why now I don't know.

A previous thread on here made it sound like it'd be a mixture of Daniel Johnston and a three year old throwing a guitar down the stairs while a dog howls.

Okay some of it is a bit like that but some really is good. This is lovely

Like the end theme to an early 70's Hywell Bennett sex farce. In a good way.

Now time to explore those Trembling Bells.

There's no aspect of this film I don't like and this is a slice of pure bliss.

Men Without Hats - I Got The Message

Listening to The Safety Dance led me to this, the single which followed it.  It reminds me of Devo's That's Good, which I think was released later in the same year.  I find it very catchy; perhaps I should listen to the rest of Rhythm of Youth.

John Barry's Florida Fantasy - surely the most infectious and perfectly-formed song ever

It's wonderful. when I was about twenty I paid what was then a lot of cash for an import of the Midnight Cowboy soundtrack, just to have that two beautiful minutes available for me to play whenever I wanted.

It might be my favourite ever soundtrack. 'Florida Fantasy' is of course one of the most charming 2 minutes of music ever created, then you've got the title theme which is too sad and beautiful for words, 'Everybody's Talking', the groovy psych stuff - it's just amazing.

I listened to an album 5 times in a row on Sunday (if that's not deviating from the thread's premise too heavily): Dusty Springfield's See All Her Faces. Despite thinking myself a fan of her work, I've never really explored beyond the imperious Dusty in Memphis and her brilliant A&B-Sides Collection.

See All Her Faces is fucking amazing though. It's very diverse as it's made up of sessions with various producers, recorded over several years on both sides of the Atlantic (no pun intended), but the quality of songwriting, arrangements and, of course, Dusty's performances is as consistently high as her best work. I'm looking into the record's background more as it seems to be a bit of a lost classic. Seems it was sonly briefly issued on CD by Rhino in 2002.

Check out this version of Betty Wright's 'Girls Can't Do What Guys Do'. She somehow improves on the original, giving it a loping, Shuggie Otis-esque vibe.

And there's brilliant light and shade throughout, from the heavy country-funk of Crumbs Off The Table to the sweet bossa nova of Come For a Dream.

Think I'll listen to the whole thing 5 times in a row again now.
