Funky Friday Bonus Tracks

EMI sent me the new Lily Allen song - it is a poor quality rip, but gives you an idea where she is at. DFA Records brings you Runaway, and they bring you some deep, tasty dance floor grooves. Windsurf remind me of Ultramarine - a lovely bit of electronica witn jangly guitars and squiggly synths. The Faze Action is a disco classic, with this version upping the groove factor. Huge. Poni Hoax' bass will shred your speakers. I was a bit unsure about Ladyhawke at first, but now I am a confirmed fan - Dusk Till Dawn is a big reason why. Treasure Fingers + Chromeo = slick '80s electro a-la D-Train. Kleerup features Neneh Cherry and a kid choir, and they manage to transcend having a kids choir with a nice and dreamy tune. Mr.Chop delivers the jazz-noir hip hop vibe and it is good.

Lily Allen - Everyone's At It
Runaway - Red Hot
Runaway - Putting In The Overtime
Faze Action - Moving Cities (Alternative Version)
Windsurf - Pocket Check
Poni Hoax - Hypercommunication (Joakim's Cartoon Muscles Mix)
Ladyhawke - Dusk Till Dawn
