Fresh tracks

St Etienne are back after what seems like an age, with a superbly poppy single. It’s up to their usually high standards and is a confident blend of hooks, slightly wry lyrics and general loveliness. You can download it for free on their website.

On the slightly more intense end of the musical spectrum is the mean, moody and magnificent Touch by Holy Other. Definitely fair to say this is an earworm of a record and will burrow its way into your memory banks.

To round off for now, the wonderfully titled L’Equipe du Son remix of Beach by 80s Stallone is the uplifting tonic you need when the temperature around is dropping so rapidly.

Dr Seuss + Darth Vader = festive cheer

As it’s almost Christmas here’s a very cool mashup of two pop cultural icons; The Grinch and Darth Vader. Guaranteed to bring some festive cheer to even the most jaded Sith overlord.

Hipster prints

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011 at 3:02 pm

It’s rare that printers get much love when it comes to hardware. Sure we all like the design of a sleek smart phone or a set of speakers, but the office workhorse is very much maligned and is generally the neglected step child of technology.

This is likely to change though with the release next year of the Little Printer from Berg. Using a set of APIs it grabs data from all your favourite social networks, and produces daily print-outs in a whimsical style for your amusement.

Prepare to want one…
