Ryan(StopMe): Here’s a new compilation I made based solely on the theme of spoken word music. I call it ‘The Art Of The Spoken Word‘ and it actually features some of my all-time favourite tracks. Like Luxembourg’s ‘Making Progress’, The White Stripes’ ‘Hand Springs’ (Possibly my number one favourite track!), Ironweed’s ‘Down To My Grave (Audio Suspects Remix)’ and Dexys Midnight Runners’ ‘Reminisce (Part Two)’.
