Three tracks that we found this week....
The Districts - 4th and Roeblin (2015)
The Districts are a four piece who hail from Pennsylvania whose debut album A Flourish And A Spoil, is released on the 10th February. 4th and Roebling, is named after the intersection where they parked their van during their first trip to Brooklyn. It's the kind of song that makes you stand up and listen - very similar to the feeling I had when I first heard The Strokes - and if you are not tapping your hands and feet by the end you obviously have a medical condition.Old Pa's Corner:-
Midnite - Worry Free (2015)
Here is a little bit of Reggae Roots for 2015 and it is from Midnite and is called Worry Free, It is from the album Ride Tru (2015).
Midnite are a roots reggae band from St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, and have been playing since 1989..
The band's music follows in the tradition of the great roots Reggae bands of 1970s Jamaica and you can't say more than that. This chugs along very nicely and is a bit of a grower. No Worries!
The Prodigy - 'Nasty' (2015)
The Godfathers Of Rave have hit the spot with this one. Keith Flint with his luscious Essex accent and co have captured the true essence of what The Prodigy are about to me, bottled it, shaken it and let it spray out everywhere! This new but 'old school' single was released just last week to prep us for the arrival of new album The Day Is My Enemy out end of March. It's supposed to be fresher yet darker and from this offering is suitably noisy. This one is not for the faint hearted and definitely will be used like a strong espresso first thing in the morning!
