The Casanova Wave
Waterford man Brian McCartan has got some deserved attention on the Irish blogosphere of late for his debut self-titled EP with Irish blog The Point of Everything dubbing his brand of rich one-man band electronica as “chillwave we can call our own”.

DELS
Two videos into his career on Big Dada, DELS (pictured) is probably the UK’s most exciting unknown rapper. He has recorded those two first 8-bit infused singles – Shapeshift and Trumpalump with Joe Goddard of Hot Chip.

James Blake
A rising star in electronic music over the last year, the UK’s James Blake has twisted that buzz once again with his recent piano-based Klavierwerke EP and a restrained and desolate cover of Feist’s Limit To Your Love.

Accidental Penis
A somewhat childish repository containing pictures of things which look like the male organ. Your puerile humour fill for a Friday.
http://accidentalpenis.com

Tasteologie
Delectable links from the culinary arts or food porn at its best/worst. See also, “Liqurious” for the drinks version.
http://tasteologie.notcot.org

Life through a shooting gallery
Ria van Dijk has been visiting the same fairground park’s shooting gallery every year since 1936 to take a shot at the target and have her picture taken in the process.
