59 Nautilus – Rune Lindbaek (Drum Island)
I have long harboured the softest of spots for the Vikingular vibes of leading nincompoop of Nordic niceness, Rune Linbaek. Many years ago I kicked off a mix CD for Remix mag with his Junta Jaeger, which is a masterpiece of sludgey discoid majesty, that I still fling in the box from time to time. The Bonat Synthesizer EP, for his own Drum Island label, snuck out towards the end of ’08 and is similarly top notch. I suspect will this also have a flextended shelf life round at chez Stinky and environs.

This was a delightful surprise from Auckland guitarslinger for all sorts of folk, Jeremy Toy, who comes on all shoegazi (his own term, from memory) for the mysterious S.S.R. You can check the moody blurred ‘Iceblock’ on his myspace (below) and I suggest an beady eye be kept on future activity from the S.S.R. camp.
54 Crying Blood (Andrew Weatherall Dub) – VV Brown (Island)
I had a ramble about this 10″ here and slung up the vocal version, here’s the Weatherall dub which isn’t available on the 7″ that has followed the sold out ten run. Large.

53Uptown (Andrew Weatherall Rmx) – Primal Scream (B Unique)
And there will be more Weathearall to come….. This sublime, somewhat nostalgic mix was only available with the ludicrously priced (50 quid) ‘Beautiful Future’ vinyl, limited edition, set, which was seemingly specifically designed for folk with more money than sense. I’m all for stimulating the market, and squeezing us last few foolish vinyl customers reasonably dry, but that amount is outrageous, and outside of the highly desirable, unavailable elsewhere 12″ of this mix, you’re paying for art prints and fancy packaging palaver. What a wanky waste of a good mix, and way to make music unattainable to your average sadass. Enjoy the mp3.

52 Le Valse De La Vie – Jean Marie Aerts (False Tuned)
This veteran Belgian guitarist unleashed a pearler of a 12″ for Tikiman’s label that won me over with it’s general Sergeness on this track, and an unusually high strike rate elsewhere. Oh and the ‘blah blah blah’ bits, get me big time.
