Review: The Library Vultures return with Volume 4 of their mischievous archive-music cut ups. Keeping Up With The Commodore reworks a 1980s Australian TV jingle encouraging us to embrace the incredible spread-sheeting powers of the new Commodore 64. On the flip Whatever Happened To The Hippies? layers vintage counter culture documentary footage and a chunky Beck / Fatboy beat, over an instrumental sit com cue that wouldn't sound out of place in the background of Cheers.

Review: Curated as part of the iconic street artist's Tate exhibition this year, The World Of Keith Haring unites many of the talented souls Keith knew, or was inspired by, during his prolific rise as one of the most vital cultural spokesmen through the 70s and 80s. Soundtracking the gritty downtown NYC streets he made his first mark on, this limited collection captures the whole melting pot from b-boy culture with cuts such as "E.T Boogie" and "Bump N Grind", raw boogie and soul ("Over & Over") and pure drama ("The Guardian Angel Is Watching Over Us"). A powerful collection as striking and relatable as his own signature.
