Fresh from seeing the riot grrrl film 'All Over Me', the penultimate episode of Kaleidoscope (for the summer) starts with a 90s inspired double from Beck and The Breeders. Granted it's not exactly from the same mould as the soundtrack, which features the Sleater Kinney and The Murmurs but I'm saving the riot grrrls for a later date. Throughout the show I talk about a vast amount of visual related content however a Prince trance set off from 'I Would Die for You' paves the way for tracks from Onra and Vanilla. Captivated by the sight of a man swimming in a lake full of jelly fish to the sounds of Radiohead, see here - http://vimeo.com/23079092, the tranquility of his actions synched with 'Nude' are perfect for a Midday Madness Cure. In an episode few of new releases, one stands out from the rest, described as "heartache for the dancefloor" by Numbers, London producer Deadboy samples Bon Iver in his latest track 'Down on Mind'. Finally, Kaleidoscope pays tribute to the late Gil Scott Heron and his wealth of music in Golden Oldies, noting how adaptable his spoken word music was over the decades. Music from Arcade Fire, Nouvelle Vague, Sun Glitters also feature.

Love the girl with Kaleidoscope eyes xx
