You could end up with a smash in the mouth just for standing out.

Had fun at Trash Palace last night listening to the new Goldfrapp album before going on to work at Misshapes.    The album was pretty backgroundy but it seemed a continuation of their Black Cherry sounds.   It’s out in 2 weeks and I’m looking forward to it.  I can’t believe how high Ooh La La will be entering the chart on Sunday!

Thanks to Ricky, Shall, Jimmy, Liz & Darren for coming along!

DING DONG

Miss Karinski is listening to

The Cardigans – I need some fine wine, and you, you need to be nicer
A combination of the folksy sounds from Long Gone Before Daylight and the harsher sound of Gran Turismo, but without any electroness.   Sounds a little Roisin Murphy.   It’ll be getting a spin on Thursday night, get in before 11 if you want to hear it.

The Sugababes – Push The Button
Oooh. We like 🙂

Ladytron – Destroy Everything You Touch
I was trying to work out earlier if this is my single of the year so far.  I knew I should have started keeping that chart back in January.    Even if it’s not my favourite (which it might be) it is WAY UP THERE.   Out at the end of the month, this is a monster.  Come on Ladytron, break through, let others see how great you are.

Girls Aloud – Long Hot Summer
Do I like this? Do I? Do I really?  I certainly want to like it, with all my heart, but hmmm.  It’s certainly taken a lot of listens to get me to vaguely liking it.   The ba ba ba bit is ace, and the more you listen the better it gets.  But hey, what do I know.  I didn’t like Love Machine at first.    SPAZMO!
[edit: i’ve decided yes i do like it, it’s ace!]

Shelly Poole – Hard Time for the Dreamer

The title track from Miss half of Alisha’s Attic debut solo album.  It’s lush!

Rousing Fun

What’s exciting the life of Miss Trixie Karinski at the moment….

The Cardigans : Whoo! They are on their way back.  I’ve been watching this webpage for months and it’s been gradually filling up with information.  Although ridiculously long, I insanely love the title of their new single, I need some fine wine, and you, you need to be nicer.  I don’t think I gave Long Before Daylight as much attention as I should have when it was released.   When You Kissed Me has to be up there as one of the most beautiful songs out there.

Clor 
: The album ‘Clor’ is out today, and it is brill.   Quirky, indie mixes seemlessy with beats, bops and quirky electronic twinges.   

Razzamatazz :  Recently discovered, currently up there with my favourite Pulp songs.

Projectile Vomiting : The cherry has been popped. A big thank you must go to the very lovely Blue Aftershock.  High five.

Brighton Pride  : We’re off to Brighton to DJ at Brighton Pride. How cool is that!

Camembert : It’s a type of cheese… of course I’m excited!

Doctor Who : Thanks go to the BBC for continuing their theme of spoilering Doctor Who.  But still it’s made me excited about it again.  Only 4 months to go. Groan.

Self Indulgent Guff

This weekend I went back with the best friend to the motherland to have fun, frolics and visit the family.

Every time I go back it becomes more and more apparnant that there is very little reason to go back. I’ve taking a different path in life from those who are still there and it’s very apparant when hooking up with old friends that we just have nothing in common anymore.

Once upon a time, I couldn’t even imagine myself leaving my hometown and the clubs and the fun behind, but now I can’t imagine any reason for being there.

Current life is, to be overly enthusiasic, just *fabulous* and I have both the best friend a girl could ever wish for and other excellent friends surrounding me.

Wow, this is sounding like the kind of super indulgent guff that I hate so much from one blogger (i’ll spare the link), but to that, all I say is BOSH BOSH BOSH, Pigeon!, BELGOROBOT SAYS XXXX, *tear.
