"Reload" (2012) by Sebastian Ingrosso & Tommy Trash, is used to stunning effect in the film
Force Majeure, as Tomas and Mats relax with a beer at an outdoor bar in their Alpine resort:

Here's another classy dance track, this time by Swedish DJ Otto Knows (Otto Jettman). I had to
identify "Million Voices" for others on YT quite often----after a family member identified for me:

Bubs at PSF (who somewhat regrettably calls himself ALERT ALERT ADMlNS !!!!!!!!!!! these days) posted this
advance track from a forthcoming (May) album called Chapel Perilous by Gnod, a band with a formidable body
of work to its name (so why hadn't I heard of them before?) This is "Donovan's Daughter" (hang on to your hats):

On asking Brudley Weavus (aka Bubs) at PSF which one Swans album
he would recommend, this one came up. It's pretty devastating so far...

Since hearing Sophie's astonishing album Oil of Every Pearl's Un-insides earlier this year, I've been fascinated by her music, although some of it is a little too minimal for my liking. "I (Getting Near)" is a track I discovered yesterday. According to a reddit post, "AG [Cook] confirmed this is a song [from 2013] by him and Sophie called 'Potion'. The vocals are by Nicola Roberts and some of the chords are by EASYFUN!!! from 2015."

I thought I'd posted a live version of this--maybe it was at our previous home. This is very nice indeed.

From Tribute, John Newman's album recorded in the wake of a painful breakup, this is "Easy". Note the Numanesque ending...

I wasn't really expecting to link a Little Feat track in this topic but it's from their 2012 album Rooster Rag. Thing is, my friend Carlo from Fresno has just recorded a stonking version of it. (Little Feat is the other favourite band of BB chronicler Peter Reum, who joined our ill-fated previous home.)

This is quite a harrowing listen. Read the analysis and you'll understand why.

There are albums I'd think twice before playing them again. One is David Bowie's Blackstar (given to me as a birthday present). Departure Songs is another. Normally I have a affinity with albums about loss--these two are about loss of life, which makes them very difficult listening indeed.

With thanks to krabklaw at Smiley for alerting me to this solid slab of sugar for the ear. Shades of various people including The High Llamas. Very tasty in small doses (the rest of the album can be heard here ):

Why I hadn't posted this before now is a complete mystery. It's one of my favourite live performances by anyone, in my view beating even the iconic Letterman outing. (Singles, the 2014 album it comes from, is a rare example of synth music with a heart.)

James Hughes-Clarke joins in at Smiley now and again, usually but not always to promote his latest recording. This is "Annelise". I really like that leaping bass line and the BB-esque falsetto in the middle and in the fade. Nice chord changes too. It's all James, by the way. I think it's lovely.

Seventeen-year-old Billie Eilish was recommended to me by Smiley's Billy the Mod (no relation) and I must admit her album (see link) is simply stunning. I had to link this track here--yes, Jim Moriarty's famous line was the direct influence on the writing of it. Love this fan video!
