2007 - The 7 Inch Highlights

As we face into the last couple of weeks of the year, I thought that I'd share my favourite purchases throughout the year with you. When compiling this I realised that I've bought an awful lot of seven inch vinyl this year, a few hundred in fact. Anyhow here are my personal highlights in alphabetical order so as not to be interpreted as any kind of chart thingy. I'll get around to making a podcast of my absolute favourites over the next few days. In the meantime here's something to chew on.

Very nice list. I'm going to trust your judgement on the stuff I don't know and get busy tracking them down.
Nice blog too, by the by.

You'll find an awful lot of the tunes on the podcasts to the right of the page. And thanks!

CresceNet said...

Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net( no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso. If is possible add the CresceNet( in your blogroll, I thank. Good bye friend.

I never knew you knew Crescenet? Great for the auld in-depth comments.

econgirl said...

Nice list dude! Love that Blonde Redhead song, made me dig out the album again for a spin (I say that like it was released years rather than months ago!)

National Disgrace said...

Dig the Pilooski stuff.. Did you catch in Solas a couple of months ago?

Matt Vinyl said...

Cres - Good man yerself!

Kev - Don't know what the fuck that's all about! Full of chat so he is!

Econ - I don't really like lists or charts. I think I've mentioned before that I've about two hundred tunes in my top ten records. My top tens are tardis like.

National - Missed the fuckers, these pesky kids of mine, so demanding, they expect you to feed, shelter and love them. No Solas action as a result.

I Prefer The Obscure Remix said...

A fine selection indeed Matt. Many thanks, some real gems in there. Big shout to Panda Bear and LC! Some stuff I missed, must hunt 'em down.
I can't figure out how to link any more. I'm clearly a technophobe. You're a man in the know, those ION turntables with the usb connection that are always advertised in the Guardian/Observer, any use?

Matt Vinyl said...

IPTOR - I left a post on your blog about the turntables, I couldn't get into this one in work. rafters.

Pedro said...

Notorious – Turbulence, one of the best songs of the past year. Fucking dirty bass-heavy's the shit.

Pedro said...

Dude, get Dave & Julie to order the Ter Haar 10" for you from Sinnbus. You wont regret it Matt. It is so fucking good.

Matt Vinyl said...

Pedro - Cheers for the heads up. I'll get them on the case.

Cillian said...

Matt, many thanks for the wise words, my response is over at the blog, damn Firewalls!!

I Prefer The Obscure Remix said...

And now I just used my name, I'm losing it today! Matt,response to the ION answer is back over at my blog. Cheers mate.
