Out now – Benbo: Benbo’s 2015 Bundle [PKLZD]
Benbo’s roundup compilation of all official releases in 2015 is out now, including some rare cassette tracks and remixes:
The year opened with Janey Moffat & Adam Clements‘ ‘Sheep On Drugs’ promo becoming Knitty‘s Knitted Video of the Week, and Jake Scott‘s weird ‘Black Hole’ trip getting tipped by the MG Owner’s Club.
Then Indie Shuffle premiered ‘If You Feel Emotional’. It knocked Foals off the top off their Alternative chart, and Pigeons & Planes called it ‘effortless.’
Closing the year, ‘Nurvel Durd’ dropped on Christmas Day – Eddy Temple Morris crowned it his inaugural Friday Night Hand Job and it went on to become a Fresh On The Net Fresh Fave.
In between the indie pop and the surreal super stereo instrumental there were some oddities exclusive to cassette, and a quintet of remixes for fellow Pink Lizard Music artists.
They are all collected here. Punch play on this for a 90 second summary:
