LCD Soundsystem – North American Scum.

The record I put on when I bring someone home is…

Ron Sexsmith – Secret Heart.

The most surprising record in my collection is…

Well there are lots of surprising things, but the thing that's constantly surprising me today is the works of Moondog – a New York-based artist who composed with saxophones, bottles and found objects.

The last thing I bought/downloaded was…

an album by Rachel Unthank and The Winterset [Last]. Beautiful, strange folk/experimental stuff from Northumberland.
