Haste’s Place

St. Vincent – I Prefer Your Love

If you’ve not checked out St. Vincent’s latest eponymous album then I highly recommend that you get on it this instant. Musically abstract with beats all over the place but a strong sense of melody throughout, definitely not your average indie record and all the more awesome for it. I Prefer Your Love is probably one of the more accessible tracks on there and it’s well lovely…

Toto – I Won’t Hold You Back

I’m sure everyone knows it from Roger Sanchez’s Another Chance but this is a top tune in its own right. I guess Toto are seen as being pretty uncool(?) but they’re actually awesome and have released loads of music. Well, I say so anyway and I’m sticking with it.

Killing Joke – Unspeakable

Post-punk stuff from Killing Joke who I seem to remember going on to do a load of industrial type stuff in the 90s that I didn’t particularly like. Taken from their second album this is pretty top stuff, especially for all the way back in 1981.

Angela Bofill – Who Knows You Better

Big soul from Angela’s 84 album Let me be the one. If you’ve not heard it then get it, it’s awesome!

Treebound Story – Swimming In The Heart Of Jane

Treebound Story was Richard Hawley’s old band who had a few releases back in the mid to late ’80s. It’s all lovely Smiths-like stuff with pretty melodies and weaving guitar lines, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it was Morrissey and Marr at the controls at many points.
