Gumball Machine Weekend

Yppah 🇺🇸

18th May 2009

The second in a trio of songs by a pair of my favourite artists of recent years. Following Salt Spring by Anomie Belle, we have Gumball Machine Weekend by Yppah, from his 2009 They Know What Ghost Know LP.

Lovely Allen

Holy Fuck 🇨🇦

Single (2008), LP (2007)

The final song in a trio of tracks by bands with sweary names, and the second instrumental. It combines electronics with live instruments in a tune that grooves in a way that purely electronic acts rarely do. There are a lot of similarities between this and acts like Death in Vegas, who will get their spot on this blog soon.

Fuck Buttons 🇬🇧

14th October 2009

The second in a trio of songs by bands who couldn't resist getting a bit sweary in their names, this is a powerful, uplifting, instrumental that fitted in perfectly when used in the 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony.
