Here are all of colly's jams.
by The Walkmen
The song I'm most likely to "perform" in the privacy of my own home. I'll never tire of it. Never. "The windows are shaking and so are my bones..."
Get I Lost You at Amazon
Jammed: 16th Aug 2013
Album this week, and it suits all my Siouxsie-sound needs.

One of the best Christmas songs, that nobody except me seems to remember. Jing-a-ling-a-ling, a-ling-ling.
Get Christmas Vacation at Amazon
Jammed: 24th Dec 2012
Rediscovered the album "Lisbon" after visting Lisbon. Recalled seeing them live in NYC 2010. Love this song.

Jammed: 1st Sep 2012
by Cat Power
Amazing, and like little she's ever done before. Not out until September, and I canny wait.
Get Ruin at Amazon
Jammed: 19th Jun 2012
Yes, Heart. Forget the 80s. It's all about the 70s,. Young, full of riffs, and like a sort of female Led Zep.
Get Barracuda at Amazon
Jammed: 28th May 2012
by Wild Nothing
Something very Smiths/The The/New Order about this and it's, like, all Summery and gentle indie and stuff .

One girl, some electronic boxes, and a great voice = my synthy electronic pop itch well and truly scratched.
Get Circumambient at Amazon
Jammed: 17th Apr 2012

Because I hadn't heard it for years, and then I randomly played it today. Loud. And lo, it was wondrous.
Get Dry the Rain at Amazon

A well-received song on my #naconf after-party playlist. Quite right too.

One of my top ten tracks of 2011 from another amazing Antlers album.
Get Parentheses at Amazon
Jammed: 6th Jan 2012
by Lia Ices
Probably my favourite song of 2011. Takes a change of direction (with Justin Vernon) halfway in.
Get Daphne at Amazon
Jammed: 31st Dec 2011
One of the best alternative Christmas songs, although it isn't actually about Christmas. Magical anyway.
Get Just Like Christmas at Amazon
Jammed: 19th Dec 2011
Yes, its the 60s doowop Dion, but this rare, dirty rhythm and blues b-side from 1968 is wonderful.
Get Daddy Rollin' (In Your Arms) at Amazon
Jammed: 11th Dec 2011

Always love Frank Turner. Latest album so good. This builds into some angsty noise and I play it to death.
