These are our tracks of the week. Do you have any? Let us know!
The Horrors - 'Still Life' (2011)
I imagine this from a cut scene in an 80's film where a lovelorn protagonist, white jacket (sleeves rolled up) and Wayfarers on, is driving dazed through the city. Hmmm anyway that was probably me fantasing on the way back from Camberley with the weekly shopping . There's an abundance of bands recreating 80's style Synth-Pop but I took an instant liking to this track, perhaps it has that right mix of all those 80's bands at the darker end of the spectrum. A slow stomping beat culminating to an anthemic ending..huge!
Definately in the mix in this song:-
Jesus and Mary Chain, Gary Numan, Joy Division
Lana Del Rey - 'VideoGames' (2011)
My wife put me onto this (she heard it on Fearne Cottons show) and although the song as nice as a chilled glass of Chardonnay it needs a few listens - fortunately the video is worth a watch and it could easily be targeted at the male audience - it features pouting, video games & skateboarding. Which are 3 things that I enjoy.....enough said!
Bon Iver - 'Calgary' (2011)
This is taken from the new self titled Album 'Bon Iver'. Two eagerly anticipated albums this year was this one and the new one by the Fleet Foxes. Both were hard acts to follow. There does not apear to be the standout Tracks that were prominent in their last outings. Saying that, I have heard enough from both, that, with a little bit of 'work' (I mean work with pleasure) the rewards will be forth coming. The Calgary track hit me right away and gets better with each hearing.
