TRACKS OF THE WEEK 03-08-2014 - Jeff Tweedy, Bahamas, Weezer, Rag 'N' Bone Man

Four tracks more exciting than the Commonwealth Games!

Rag 'N' Bone Man - 'Put That Soul On Me' (2014)

I've been recovering from the fall out of Latitude and catching up on artists that I missed. You're never going to be able to see everything and your constantly having to make a Sophie's Choice of sorts, Rag 'N' Bone man was one of them. With a fantastic soul voice, the Brighton based Bluesman has his roots firmly in Hip Hop as is evident from this track and a few others in his back catalogue I've been catching up on recently (Dog 'N' Bone and Bluestown EPs). 'Put That Soul On Me' (produced by Dirty Dike), with it's sweet little piano loop is taken from one of two EP's released last month, Put That Soul On Me and Wolves, perfect if you're in need for laid back bluesy Hip Hop. Rag 'N' Bone man is probably one collaboration away from stardom and is arguably the best act we never saw at Latitude.

Download Wolves for free at Mr Rag 'N' Bone Man's Bandcamp page here.

Bahamas - All The Time (2014)

Afie Jurvanen, a.k.a. Bahamas, is back with his first release for two years with the effortless laid-back-indie-pop-soul (or whatever you want to call it!) "All This Time". He first caught my attention with the excellent lost in the light which featured on 2012's Barchords, of which this follows a similar mould.
It features on Bahamas' upcoming 12-song LP, Bahamas is Afie, which arrives August 19 on Jack Johnsons Brushfire Records.

Old Pa's Corner :-
Jeff Tweedy - Summer Noon (2014)


Classic Jeff Tweedy from his new album Sukierae (2014) out in September. This could be lifted of any of the the great Wilco albums it is just perfect.

London Scouser:-
Weezer - 'Back To The Shack' (2014)

It's been a few years since I've heard anything by Weezer and they're back on form. They tick all the boxes for me with great riffage and a catchy tune. My favourite lyrics are "let's turn up the radio, turn off those stupid singing shows"... Amen to that !!! This was released on the 23rd July and is the lead off single to their 9th album 'Everything Will Be Alright In The End' which is out on September 30th.

LS - have not listened to Weezer before...good riffage

FC - I like it, but it almost seems like it's a good start but never really gets going. His voice reminds me a little of Everlast
SFW - A nice slice of summer
OP - I would describe it as nice

and the Gold Medal goes to the entry from Bahamas (very Commonwealth friendly)
