Five Yorkshire puddings with extra gravy.....tasty!
Paul McCartney - New (2013)
For me, it was always The Beatles over the Stones. As a kid I listened to all their albums over-and-over again and when I was at music college I documented a large number of their songs to music score - which included every drum beat, tambourine shake and clap. You could say I liked them. When I heard that Macca had recorded with Giles Martin, Mark Ronson, Paul Epworth and Ethan Johns I was intrigued. "Please be good", "Please be good". It's not good...it's bloody great!!! Welcome back Sir Paul!
Summer Camp - 'Fresh' (2013)
If you need a theme tune for an Indian summer, look no further. You can't beat a bit of Disco and the camper it is the better, I don't quite know what this says about me but that hardly matters as Summer Camp's nostalgic, 'Fresh', brushes shoulders with Daft Punk and Holy Ghost in this years Disco club. It's a bittersweet track, which recalls fond and heady memories of 'the first time' (which incidentally for me, was a disaster) before trying desperately trying to forget all about it as you nurse a broken heart (also a disaster). Summer camp are a London Girl/ Boy duo and 'Fresh' is taken from their second and self titled album out on Moshi Moshi records.

The Temperance Movement - Only Friend (2013)
Just for you, some old school no nonsence rock. This is a throw back to the 60s and 70s, when guitar heroes and gravelly voiced long haired boys, ruled the airwaves.
Here we have Glasgow's very own The Temperance Movement with a track from their self titled debut album. If you are in the right mood this hits the right spot. I just love this guys voice, a great riff and just a hint of swagger. They just might make it big.
Korn - 'Never Never' (2013)
Time for a bit of rawk refreshment I thought and flicked onto Kerrang radio at work last week. I instantly recognised Jonathan Davis' screechy voice but was trying to wrack my brain as to the song title. When it came up I realised it was new to me. Blimey, these guys are still rocking even now! Responsible for one of my fave all time tracks, Freak On A Leash, I became heavily into Korn from 1998 onwards. They had such a unique style of metal mixed with a thrilling bit of slap bass every now and then. This single, released in August marks the arrival of their 11th(!) studio album and the return of former band member Brian Welch fondly nicknamed "Head". I'm thinking about kicking back to the old school with my old baggy jeans with chain, dog colar and black hair dye as I will happily "dress the part" for my Korn revival!
Coldplay - Atlas' (2013)
Coldplay - Atlas' (2013)
I know I shouldn't be surprised, but they've gone and bloody well done it again. Coldplay have an amazing knack for coming out with great track after countless great track. Try as I might, I can't remember a song they have either released or even an album track that I haven't thought "Yeah, I like it" I remember Old Pa, once saying they were the band you want to hate but can't !!
This track was written specifically for the new Hunger Games: Catching Fire movie. It starts off slowly on the piano as some of their better tracks have and builds into great pop song.
Yep, they've got me again.
