Two tracks that buzzed our towers this week! Do you have any 'Top Guns'? Let us know
Wild Beasts - 'Reach a bit Further' (2011)
Wild Beasts - Reach A Bit Further by DominoRecordCo
Angry apes favourite, Wild Beasts have been on heavy rotation in the flycasual household for a couple of months now. 'Smother' is such a consistently good album that it's been very hard to pinpoint an individual track as my favourite. Then after driving home one sunny afternoon from a near perfect day at the beach, this song came through. Whether it's the beat, melody, the sand in my ears or Hayden Thorpe's fabulous voice delivering an infectious chorus, it's all good. It's a short tune which leaves you wanting more.
Sfw was unavailable for comment. CIA drones tracking him earlier, reported seeing him stagger out of the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff after the Welsh rugby team gave the Argentinian boys a good seeing to. They couldn't get a clear shot for an air strike and lost him. He's probably off singing somewhere.
Old Pa's Corner:-
Errol Linton - 'Mama Said' (2011)
Errol Linton - Mama Said (2011)
I was browsing the other day (like you do) and came across this guy Errol Linton, as I never heard of him before I sampled a few of the tracks on his album 'Mama said' and the title track just blew me away. It was just like an old blues track from way back, mouth harp and all. There was just so much energy, I did not hesitate and had to buy it right away.
The 'Busking Brixton Bluesman' is apparently a bit of a legend in 'underground circles', he quite literally plays in the London Underground with his one man band. Can't wait to hear the rest of his album. Stardom awaits Errol.
