By October 12, 2018 Music

This Saturday is National Album Day, and to celebrate we’ve put together a list of our favorite albums of ALL time !!

In Our Lifetime – Marvin Gaye


“That voice and those arrangements blow my mind. His last Motown album a stone cold classic ! “

Beastie Boys – Check Your Head

Ben J

“Impossible to choose a singular favourite album but this one is up there. 19 year old me working the tills at Tower on the late shift. Still sounds as good now as it did on release. “

Julian Cope – Jehovahkill


“Just genius songwriting- equal parts funny and poetic.
Sounds as good today as it ever did”
“400 meters across and hanging like a football field over the valleys and stone circles wondering what you the crop will yield”

Ben Howard – Every Kingdom


“This album inspired me to make my own music. Lyrically genius and honest.

It takes me back to youthful carefree summer days”

Oasis – Definitely Maybe


“This album sound-tracked a lot of good times when I was younger, and it’s one I can always listen to, no matter what kind of mood I’m in.”

Homeshake – Fresh Air

“Love the blend of indie and rnb. Peter Sagar songwriting is one of my favourites.
Tracks of all time: Call me up, TV Volume, Every Single Thing
For fans of: Michael Sayer, Boy Pablo, Triathalon”

Miles Davis – Kind of Blue


Jazz perfection. My go to album, of choice”

New Order – Technique


New Order, a band at the height of their powers deliver their best and near perfect Ibiza / Acid House / Balearic inspired album of faultless pop songs, that sound-tracked so beautifully the summer of 1989 to this impressionable 20 year old”

Magic Carpet – S/T


It’s a family thing ~ My Papa (grandad) is one of biggest inspirations (apart from my gran who taught me about Bruce Springsteen and said don’t bother with the Beatles) to music I have, he was in a legit cool band in the 70’s…mad hippy folk shoes off kinda stuff. Enjoy!”
