This edition of The Breakdown was done live at Doc Branigans again, on Valentines Day. I made it a little Valentine’s special, as most of the tracks were sort of down that path anyway, but not in a corny way whatsoever. This was a particularly amazing show musically, every track on here is stellar. I had to cut about 1 hour and 20 minutes worth of music out that I had wanted to play, so my loss is your gain.

I have become particularly enraptured with the track I played by The Rubens, a little known band from Australia. I am waiting with baited breath for anything more from them now, as this track is one of the most beautiful pieces of music I’ve found in a while. I also found a new song from Washed Out, which is awesome. There are a bunch of songs in here discovered from my latest sources of musical information, plus a couple from my favourite albums of late. Add to this new songs from School of Seven Bells, Pretty Lights, GRiZ, M83 plus a good remix of an already good AWOLNATION song and a dubstep-y cover of Two Door Cinema Club, and we have the makings of an incredible 2 hours of music.

Hope you get as much out of this as I did.
