TRACKS OF THE WEEK 11/01/15 - Pell, Nadine Shah, Daniel Knox

JE SUIS CHARLIE


Old Pa's Corner:-
Daniel  Knox - Blue Car (2015)


 

I like this track, America's answer to Richard Hawley. You have to admit a little similartity here. The tones, the sadness. I think this guy is definately worth a follow up and his new self titled album (his third) is out shortly.  My track of the year so far !! 

Flycasual:-
Pell - 'The Never' feat LV Baby (2014)


A standout track that almost made me burn my onions as I cooked my lentil stew (boring but tasty) last week. I heard it on a recommended playlist of 101 songs I apparently should have heard in 2014 and I'm glad I persisted through, as like my dish, it's dope. It reminded me of the psychedelic, trippy Hip Hop from the 90's, notably Digable Planets with the same Lonnie Liston Smith sampling bassline. 'The Never' is taken from New Orleans' Pell's album, Floating While Dreaming, which was out last May. Puy-fect....eh hem.

Download it for free here....

Sfw:-
Nadine Shah - Stealing Cars (2014)


Awash with comparisons with PJ Harvey, the brilliant Nadine Shah gets our pulses racing with excellent Stealing Cars. With its driving percussion and a hook that would make Amir Khan proud, 2015 looks to being a big year for the Geordie singer/songwriter.  This is class!

FC - Firstly there is nothing wrong with lentil stew but I prefer chips.
Good track!
SFW - Love this...wish someone would steal our Mini Clubman 1992.

Daniel Knox - Great mood track. Will follow up. I reckon the drummer could have been reading a book at the same time.

Pell - Lentil stew is good by me. Nice groove. Where can you get a car with a CD player these days? Saved from the scrapper?

Nadine Shah - I've not heard anything else by her, so PJ isn't my first thought. It's OK and may be a grower.

Daniel Knox is the track of the week for me. I agree with the Richard Hawley comparison Old Pa. I'll be interested to hear what the rest of his stuff is like.

Voice of the week is Nadine Shah who just edges it. Both great tracks but I'm looking forward to hearing more from Daniel Knox. Definte similarities to Richard Hawley, a good thing.
