TRACKS OF THE WEEK - 26/06/11

These are our tracks of the week. Do you have any? Let us know!

TV on the Radio - 'Will Do' (2011)

I just loved their last album 'Dear Science' and was probably my most played of that year, so I have been looking forward to the new one, 'Nine Types of Light'. I sampled through it and this track stood out immediately and I have played it several times.....I'm looking forward to getting into the full album. I will put in on my I-podish thing and take the dogs out for a long walk. Improve the mind and excerise at the same time. You can't beat it..

Eddie Vedder - 'Can't Keep' (2011)

I've always been a huge PJ (Pearl Jam not Pyjamas) fan and I easily could go on and on about how they made a huge imprint on my life...but I won't, well maybe a little. In the early 90's, it seemed to be Nirvana vs PJ, and Nirvana seemed to come out on top. But I must admit that for me, it was always Pearl Jam. Anyway, I digress, Eddie Vedder has released a solo album called "Ukulele songs" which unsurprisingly features Eddie singing with a Ukulele.  It's probably a bit long, and a little self indulgent but I love it because 1. Its Eddie Vedder and 2. I have a Ukulele! I've chosen the song "Can't Keep" (the original version featured on the PJ Riot Act Album) and in the video he looks like a musical guardian perched on the gateway to a Hawaiian island holding back the ocean.

DELS - 'Shapeshifter' (2010)

Apparently John Peel discovered Kieren Dickins some 10 years ago as a teenager, when he was performing at a bar in Ipswich. Although 'Shapeshifter' was out last year, it is taken from his newly released debut album 'GOB'. Touted as the new voice of UK Hip-Hop, DELS brings some much needed fervour to the genre, with fresh rhymes and innovative beats (here courtesy of Hot Chip's Joe Goddard). With the track about how he used to imagine changing into different characters when he was younger, DELS is an MC with definitely a lot more to say than the average bear!

I think Eddie Vedder is a little bit overdressed.

That TV on the radio song is one of those songs you instantly like after hearing it only once!

Do you know Vedder's album of the soundtrack to 'Into The Wild'? I'm not mad about PJ at all but that is a brilliant record.

Yep, "Into the wild" is a great album! Also recommend his version of "You've got to hide your love away" on the "I am Sam" soundtrack.
