Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue #14

We begin this morning with the genius of Euros Childs in the days of Gorky's Zygotic Mynci, and their lovely single 'Diamond Dew', which has a lovely summery vibe totally in contrast with January 2016.

The summer theme continues with White Blush and their track 'Summer', which came out in late 2014 or thereabouts. It's fairly new to me, so, once again, I'm stretching the boundaries of 'new' for the purposes of this post. Carol Rhyu is a prolific composer, and I would definitely recommend checking out the rest of her tracks on Soundcloud.

The first self titled White Blush E.P included a masterpiece of moody electro called 'Jolene'. It wasn't a cover of the Dolly Parton song, but this song by Strawberry Switchblade is.

Strawberry Switchblade emerged out of the early 1980s post punk scene, as, in a very different way, did New Order. Years and years ago listeners to Piccadilly Key 103 voted 'Blue Monday' the best single of all time. A key moment of Mancunian sentimentality or the truth? You decide.
