5 tracks to accompany your BBQ sausage feast this week!
Sfw:-Gengahr - Fill My Gums With Blood (2014)
The sun is out! This infectious track by Londons Gengahr is a perfect partner to the sunshine. With it's falsetto vocals, funky bass riff and delightful groove, this track is not just a #trackoftheweek - it is already moving into my #tracksoftheyear! Play this when driving and you'll have a smile on your face!
Michael Jackson - 'Love Never Felt So Good' (2014)
Blanket! Blanket...Shamon M@&Hfu&%ay! It has been a spectacularly rough couple of months in my professional life, uncertainty for the immediate future and major changes at work, all coming to a head in the middle of last week. I'm glad to say the worst is over and I can get back to a semblance of normality but it was pretty crap. So crap in fact, that I had stopped listening to music because I just couldn't raise myself enough to enjoy it. So on goes the radio, on the way home from work and this song is on, I've heard it before and I'm so cynical on posthumously released material but this is very good. Timberlake lends a hand here (he's always kind of threatened to carry the MJ mantle) and it just fits in nicely to any of Michael Jackson's classics, particularly when he was good....Off the Wall/Thriller era and I've always been a fan.....eeehh hheee!
Old Pa's Corner :-
Neil Young - The Needle of Death (2014)
Here is a magnificent sparse take of Bert Jansc's brilliant Needle of Death. It really highlights the impact of the song. This is a great performance and is taken from a new LP called A letter Home which Neil made with the help of Jack White.
It is a Lo-Tech collection of old songs by such artists as Dylan and Springsteen. A must listen to.
Black Keys - 'Fever' (2014)
Today marks the first day of my 'Latitude Fest Quest' where I will feature bands performing at this years Latitude. Yesterday was the big reveal that the whole TuneDr team will be there together to enjoy it, not just me! The Black Keys will be headlining theSunday night at Latitude and that will be a knockout closing show to the weekend, I'm sure. The bluesy rock duo have just released their 8th album called Turn Blue and with Danger Mouse's production, it's getting some great press. I don't think there has been a Black Keys song released in the last few years that hasn't had me in it's grasp at some point or another, you could say they have 'The Key' to a great riff!
Ringo Deathstarr - 'God's Dream' (2014)
A couple of months back I stumbled across this band and featured a track from 2012. Now I'm pleased to share a new track from their recently released album of the same name. It features a video that reminds me of something that would have come out back in the seventies (and yes I'm old enough to remember then !!) which I think fits perfectly with the chilled out dreamy vocals.
