Four tracks that sizzled our sausages this week. What are yours? Let's us know in the comments...please!
The Big Pink - 'Give It Up' (2012)
Although I sort of liked a couple songs from The Big Pink's first album, I didn't take them very seriously for some reason. This song which I heard in the week, has really changed my mind. I love the hip hop undertones, piano and brass combination. Before the vocals came in, I actually thought it was a nice 70's throw back! It looks like I will definitely enjoy the slightly different direction of their new album, 'Future This' which was released on 16th January. 'Give It up' hasn't been released as a single but I have a feeling it might in future and will be sure to get more skeptics like me on side. Check out the single(this version is remixed by Forest Swords) previously released from Future This, 'Hit the Ground (Superman), below and download it for free! Result!
The 2 Bears - 'Bear Hug' (2011)
This honey pot of a track has been quite a hit around the club circuits over the last few months, I should know cause I've been larging it. Actually I haven't and feel queasy at the thought of all nighters, with work and parenting the only larging is largely done in bed. The 2 Bears is a side project from Joe Goddard, of geek chic electronic maestros, Hot Chip along with DJ Raf Daddy and 'Bear Hug' is taken from their forthcoming album, Be Strong out on January 30th. Now some people may Pooh Pooh this track as a bit of a novelty record but they're not taking themselves too seriously, it's fun, catchy and more importantly my 2 and half year old son likes it. Besides it doesn't really matter when they can make dance music of this quality.

Bruce Springsteen - 'We Take Care of Our Own' (2012)
This is the first track from Bruce's New album 'Wrecking Ball' which is released on the 5th of March 2012. Full details and information about the album can be found here. This is a good taster and is classic Bruce and if you are a fan this will certainly not disappoint. Roll on March.!
This could be the next song you hear on the terraces lads 'We take care of our Own!' ' We take care of our Own!'
Real Estate - 'Easy' (2012)
I seem to be having a manic 2012. Work seems to be consuming all my time and I'm finding it very difficult to promote the blog, listen to new music, and enjoy it all. This blogging lark isn't easy and it's hard to get 'new' listeners, let alone win them over. So when I noticed that Real Estate's latest video release featured a 'street team' it made me want to drive around my local town and drop @TuneDoctor business cards all over the place - unfortunately for me/us - I live so far out in the wilds of Wales that these will probably only get people asking when the surgery is opening.
