Sunday Best.

I LOVE Sunday Best. Its the record label run by hippie Radio 1 jock Rob da Bank. He used to present (the sadly deceased) Blue Room, as the sun came up on Sunday mornings. Now a days he presents 4 hours of Radio 1 which airs at midnight on Mondays. This is made up of 2 hours of himself and 2 hours featuring a guest where he chats to a musical demi-god about what music has influenced their career to date. Last weeks show featured up-and-coming vocalist Adele, which you can stream all day today from the Radio 1 website. Rob and Sunday Best is of course also behind the epic fancy-dress boutique end-of-Summer gathering on the Isle of White - Bestival.

Everything Sunday Best represents an incredible realm of alternative leftfield music. Every time you listen to his show you discover musical gems - whether its strange 1970s french electronica or weirdy beardy acoustic guitar nonsense, M.I.A. or Skull Disco, Devendra Banhart to Future Sound of London.

The latest Sunday Best compilation Winter Warmers [buy] is no exception. An eclectic medley. Every track melodic, many with a wonder filled lyric, some a bit happy clappy but all Winter Warmers. Music for Sundays.

Check these gems.

Poetic chatting.

You should check their remix package of Together in electric Dreams - The Human League

The Vicarious Bliss Mix is awesome.
