Broken Record

If you've been listening to 6music at all lately then Teleman won't have escaped your attention. The supremely catchy "23 Floors Up" has rightly been playlisted and their debut album Breakfast is about to be unleashed.

Teleman took time out from their busy touring schedule to tell Crackle Feedback about their record collection, and if you know the band's penchant for pop and minimalist electronica then these choices probably won't surprise you at all.

Paul Simon - Graceland

Here's a record to perk you up. Paul Simon's voice sings softly and effortlessly and the lyrical themes are diverse and intriguing, and often quite playful. The recordings have a great 'bounce' to them.

Iggy Pop - Lust For Life
Iggy Pop - Lust For Life

The best rock album ever? written, recorded and mixed in 8 days by Bowie and Iggy. An album full of a crazy dark energy, with some of the best hooks ever written (Lust for Life, Passenger) the songs are totally irresistible and timeless.

Kraftwerk - Trans-Europe Express
