TRACKS OF THE WEEK - 28/08/11

This weeks three tasty Tapas tunes, Ole! Any Patatas Bravas for us?? Let us Know!


Old Pa's Corner:-
Lenny Kravitz - 'Black and White America' (2011)




Whatever happened to Lenny Kravitz, well he's back with a new album after a 3 year gap and here is the title track from that album. I was never a great Kravitz lover but I do like this 'funk fest', it starts off brilliantly with great funk licks and the mere mention of MLK sends a shiver of anticipation. However the song peaks in the first minutes and the rest just funks its way along, I have to say, a little disappointingly to the end. Saying that, the first minute is worth the entrance fee alone. 'Let Funk rule'



Flycasual:-
Cults - 'Go Outside' (2011)



Still chasing rabbits? This will give you your hippie fix.

I heard this song last week whilst staying at Sfw's, just going about my business before having to do a double take stopping to check who was playing. It's a strange mix of sunny soul and psychedelica with a catchy melody which had me humming it for the rest of the day. It has has a soul clap throughout and I'm a sucka fo soul clap y'all. The video is a bit bizarre, about a notorious real life cult that would kill you or worse if you tried to leave, no summer of love there then. Don't let that and the bloody weather spoil the last weekend of the summer, as it's well worth your time!



The version I heard is a remix and is available to stream/download for your listening pleasure.
Cults - Go Outside (Menahan Street Band Remix)


Sfw:-
Ryan Adams - Lucky You (2011)
Lucky Now by ryanadams
Great taster from the new album "Ashes & Fire", Sounds like the Ryan Adams of old and is getting this fan drooling, Tapas comparison? Spicy Chorizo! hmmm nice!

Stuffed?.no, there's always room for some pudding tunes. Click here!

The Cults track is amazing... definitely a TOTW contender! Was a fan of Mr Kravitz when I was a kid...just don't 'dig' him anymore - but thanks for the heads up!

Sell the Kravitz track to me then!! I agree though fantastic start but sort of meanders up his own A$£e. Loved his earlier stuff, talented musician.....could have been a contender! As for Ryan...well Sfw has been ramming him home to me for so many years, not generally my weapon of choice but I will give this album a jolly good go!
