A tandoori mixed grill of tunes which whetted our appetites this week.
The Kills - DNA
I usually would dismiss this (over-hype), but this guitar hook alone made me get The Kills - Blood Pressures album - and I'm really loving it. Without knowing much about the band, it made me think of The White Stripes - I quickly realised that this was probably due to the singer, Alison Mosshart working with Jack White in The Dead Weather - either way, her & Jamie Hince (Mr Kate Moss) are doing a grand job here.... great tune!
Old Pa's Corner:-GIVERS - Saw you First
I heard a track by them, 'Up Up Up', which I thought was interesting and then when I heard this one it was a case of I must hear some more. Nice drumming an Afro-beat appeal which seems to be the vogue at the moment.
They definitely sound a bit like Vampire Weekend-ish or Cloud Control-ish, it is all very pleasant and all very acceptable for a nice summers day and maybe thoughts of the BBQ and a few cans of Skol Super Strength Lager, chilled to perfection.
Bombay Bicycle Club - Shuffle (2011)
I heard this track a few times and it's the wonky piano riff that did the damage along with it's great simple melody, complete with a nice soul clap finish. They also seem to be having a bit too much fun in the video, which is a little annoying but I'm just a miserable bastard. I have enjoyed their last two albums of contrasting styles (Flaws was more folky) and I will be looking forward to their new one out later this month fo sho!
Hungry for more tracks of the week??
