Three tracks that 'buffalo-ed our wurzels' this week. Do you have any? Let us know!
SBTRKT - 'Wildfire feat Little Dragon'
Oh dear, I'm not sure what the etiquette is here but it's twice a month now Little Dragon have featured on the Tracks of the Week posts. Perhaps not as controversial as having two tracks by the same artist on your C90 mix tape but still a bit naughty, it's my ball anyway.
I just can't help it though, as this track as has been buzzing around my play list for awhile now before I finally took the little sucker in for the attention it deserves. This time though Little Dragon features on UK DJ/producer/re-mixer, SBTRKT's self titled debut album, which was released earlier this year. Like many of the dance artists who don masks, Daft Punk, Deadmau5 and ..erm.. Altern-8, SBTRKT also uses a moniker to allow people to focus on the music as opposed to artist. He has nothing to hide on this form, it has a great Electro feel about it with a wobbly, distorted buzz saw bass all smoothed over by Yukimi Nagano's voice, then of course I just love those sirens. The video is a bit creepy too but then again, I'm a woos.
Lindsey Buckingham - Seeds we sow
I wouldn't usually listen to this normally, but my not-so-generic MP3 player keeps on playing this whilst on random. Every time I hear it, I can imagine it perfectly fitting on Fleetwood Macs 'Rumours' album, which is a complement as it's one of the biggest selling albums of all time. For those who don't know, Lindsey was the guitarist for the Mac'.
Old Pa's Corner:-
Neil Young - Amber Jean
WARNING : IF YOU DON'T LIKE COUNTRY BEWARE
What a fantastic video this is with Neil being accompanied by the International Harvesters ,some of the greatest artists in the history of country music, including the late, great Ben Keith on steel and slide guitar and Rufus Thibodeaux on fiddle. Along with living legends, Spooner Oldham and Hargus “Pig” Robbins on piano, Tim Drummond and Joe Allen on bass and Karl Himmel on drums, among many others.....I love when Neil goes all country and the fiddle playing here is a real joy. You can't get more country than this, unless Patsy Cline was sitting on Hank's knee singing a duet. Sit back and enjoy.
