Review: Something of a deity to many, Paul Weller has undergone more than his fair share of metamorphoses in a storied forty year career, but the quality control of his output post-2007's '22 Dreams' has surprised even some of most ardent devotees, and 'A Kind Revolution' is ample evidence that even as he approaches 60 his creative energy and questing spirit are undimmed. He's still searching for new modes of expression that belie his reputation as a soul-style traditionalist, and in a fractious and hostile era, the messages of hope are as much a balm as his increasingly mellifluous voice.

Review: By anyone's standards, Todd Terje & The Olsens' recent The Big Cover-Up - in which the Norwegian producer and his regular live band delivered idiosyncratic cover versions of stone cold classics - was something of a triumph. That EP also included remixes from various music industry pals, including Prins Thomas and Idjut Boy Dan Tyler. This EP boasts two more revisions from the latter, including a deliciously percussive, dubbed-out and floor-friendly "bonus beats" version of his "Firecracker" remix, the full version of which was featured on The Big Cover-Up. Better still is Tyler's rework of Terje and company's version of Martin Circus' camp disco classic "Disco Circus". Dubby, spaced-out, percussive and blessed with those oh-so-familiar backing vocals, it's an undeniable dub disco delight.
