Evlkeith's Festive 50 - 30 to 21

Welcome back to the middle section of my Festive 50. There should be a few more choice offerings in this section. Hopefully. I like them anyway.

30. Drumming Song - Florence & The Machine - Lungs
This has been popping up on my Amazon recommendations for ages, but I never really fancied it. Then someone lent it to me. Why was it recommended to me? Far too catchy. This one’s good though, it took me a while to get into it and it improved on subsequent listenings.

29. Breakawaii - Lolishit - LOLI JUICE
Premium extreme hardcore chip tune action with this one. Warning - don’t listen to the full album then accompany it with a bit of Sabrepulse. Really hard work.

28. Ecologia del Delitto (Titoli) - Stelvio Cipriani - Ecologia del Delitto
This is the title track from the film A Bay of Blood by Mario Bava. Possibly the best thing about the film. Why can’t new films have soundtracks like this?

27. Happier - A Fine Frenzy - Bomb In A Birdcage
Slightly similar to Fiona Apple’s stuff, this is quite a pleasant little number. The whole album is listenable, even to a grizzled shouty screamy boy like me.

26. Naked Sun - ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead - So Divided
Nowhere near as harsh as their name makes them sound. Every album of theirs is fairly standard issue. This song has got a good little break in the middle with a horn section.

25. Your Sun is a Destroyer - I Create - Complete Medley
Free download from I like the mixture of clean jangly guitars, restrained drumming and someone screaming their lungs out until they vomit them up in a little pool of spit on the floor. Plus you can download the whole album for free.

24. Ashtray - edIT - Crying Over Pros for No Reason
This is one for all those people who love their tracks to be cut up and chopped around. It’s amazing how many different ways the underlying track is messed about. 

23. Fleeting Moments - Pocketbooks - Flight Paths
Free download from Doccortex will love this one. It should definitely have been released by Sarah. Have a listen and you’ll hear why.

22. Nothing Special - My Dad Is Dead - Shine(r)
Minor cheat, this one. I’ve heard the Peel Sessions version before, not the album version. It’s easily the best song on a disappointing album.
21. Argument - Fugazi - The Argument
I didn’t realise that I was missing a Fugazi album. But I was. So I bought it sharpish. I wasn’t really missing much. It’s okay, but not up there with their earlier albums. This track sounds like a midway point between Fugazi and The Evens. Good ending pulls it round.

It's hotting up now. Fugazi at number 21, you'd have thought they'd be higher. On the plus side that means 20 tracks better than Fugazi. I'm spoiling you. Come back tomorrow for 20 to 11.
