Here is the chance for me to show off and go, ‘ooh, look at me and the cool stuff I like, don’t you just wish you were me?’ I was inspired by an advert I saw the other day called ‘The best album to worship to…ever,’ and it got me thinking about the way I use music.
If I’m writing I tend to listen to a single album on repeat until it makes me so nauseous I could throw it out the window, and then I pick another and do the same. Because I’m usually writing something a bit odd, such as an accused witch going mad (more on that later) or my surreal comedy sci-fi/fantastical series (more on that later too), I listen to things that get the old brain in that frame of mind. So here is a list of albums in case you need something a bit unusual:
Ital Tek’s Midnight Colour
Broadcast The Noise Made by People
Martina Topley Bird The Blue God
Leila Blood Looms and Blooms
Coco Rosie Noah’s Ark. I’ve not heard their new one yet, ‘Grey Oceans,’ but I’m sure it’s very good
Flying Lotus Los Angeles
Thom Yorke, anything . I need to hurry up and get famous so that when he finds me hiding in his room he won’t be so frightened.
