TRACKS OF THE WEEK
Old Pa :-
Holy Fuck - TomTom (2016)
Holy monstrosities, I just had to listen to this with a name like Holy Fuck and I am delighted to say that the Toronto rockers delivered my track of the week. A real pleasant surprise. There is a lot of Ciccone Youth in there somewhere and that to me is a bonus. Great driving base and great video. Get up and dance folks on the grave of the U.K. The grave that Cameron pulled the plug on and Corbyn stood by and saluted at the sinking ship.
Portishead - 'S.O.S.' (2016)
Like a musical superhero, Portishead are back after 7 years and just in time, with an aural rescue. The ABBA cover, was released in tribute to MP, Jo Cox, who was brutally slain in her constituency recently. It's a brilliant contrast to the original with all the somber minimalism we've come to expect from the Bristol legends. With all that's going on in Britain subsequently, I believe this captures the mood perfectly. "We have far more in common than that which divides us" has never rung truer.
Cass McCombs - Opposite House (2016)
I've been reading the news too much since the UK pressed the self-destruct button, and I must admit it is pretty depressing reading. Thankfully this stunning track has been able to pick me up in a bit. It features on Cass McCombs latest album, Mangy Love, which is released 26th August. Will everything be OK by then? I'm not too sure, but this has given me at least one thing to look forward to.
Two Door Cinema Club - 'Are We Ready? (Wreck)' (2016)
Where does the bloody time go?? I can believe it's been 4 years since TDCC released their last album. I was gutted when they pulled out of Latitude in 2014 as they were one of the band's I wanted to see. This is the first release from their 3rd album 'Gateway' and is a great return... I'm ready...
