Last week was a bit of an odd one. Started digging for tunes … and was generally uninspired. Not sure if it was me, a lack of digging, or just a poor week for releases, but nothing jumped out and slapped me, made me think “yeah, YEAH, this is killer!”.

I’m going to keep doing this until you or I get bored – whichever comes first.
(hint: I doubt it’ll be me … )
Best make this a good one eh?
Feelin’ a bit autumnal at the moment isn’t it? Wonder if that’ll be reflected in this weeks tunes?
