Five tracks that shut down the US Government....
Turin Brakes - 'We Were Here' (2013)
This songs answers a question I've been thinking of for a few years. Where have you been ???
Turin Brakes were a band that I always looked forward to hearing new stuff from after I heard their debut album 'The Optimist' way back in 2001. They have a simple style of great vocals and acoustic guitar with some catchy lyrics that get you humming along almost straight away.
This song doesn't fail to tick any of the above boxes and I say a warm welcome back to my listening attention.
Justin Timberlake - 'Take Back The Night' (2013)
So Mister Trousersnake is taking sexy back...again, with his latest album The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2. Take Back The Night is the lead single from it released back in July but I've only just heard it. The reason I like this so much is not only it's nice disco feel but it's so Michael Jackson it hurts! I expect to hear "mama say mama sa mamama poosa" any minute! I can't fault him in any way, he looks damn good, he's got a great pop voice and that boy has the moves on the dancefloor. Glad to have him back in the music world again!
City and Colour - Thirst (2013)
Nightmares On Wax - 'Be, I Do' (2013)
Shift work's a bitch. This weekend will be the first weekend that I'll have had off, with my wife and son, in over two months and I'm beside myself with excitement. A Friday feeling, a trip to TK Maxx and maybe a trip to Toby Carvery beckons. Nightmares on Wax were a favourite of mine when I was heavily into Trip Hop in the 90's, particularly as they mixed in Reggae and Hip Hop into their chilled vibe and 'Be, I Do' is well up to standard. The track is taken from their 7th album which was out last month and it will be special treat to be playing this to go with the Sunday papers and a bacon buttie.

The Deep Dark Woods - East St Louis (2013)
I don't know if this is legal or even if it is morally correct and I know it has never been done before. But what the hell, everything has got to have a first and I will stand tall and I will take all of the consequences.
Last week I choose an older track by TDDW as I could not find anything of their new album Jubilee (2013). Well, I have listened to the new album and it is brilliant, one of my favourites of this year. I absolutely adore this catchy melodic track East St Louis. I am sure there is a little nod in there to the Beach Boys, which is of course is a good thing.
This is a must hear album.
