TRACKS OF THE WEEK - 22/02/2015 - Led Zeppelin, Matthew E. White, Mysteries, Ibeyi

Old Pa's Corner :-
Led Zeppelin - Brandy and Coke (2015)


Nothing more to say!  Brilliant!  Track of the Year so far....ooooh! maybe not! Check out Dylan's New Album!!!

For Cliff,  he would hate this!  But I needed something hard!  Something violent, something to kick the shit out of Cancer!!

Ibeyi - 'Ghosts' (2014)

This track, from French/Cuban duo, Ibeyi has been following me around all week. Apart from some stunning vocals and tidy key playing, it's a haunting (pun not really intended, really) song. A reminder that we all have 'ghosts', some more difficult to exorcise than others, very annoying. Taken from their recent, self titled album out on XL recordings.

Shell Hunter:-
Matthew E White - 'Rock & Roll Is Cold' (2015)

You can't beat a bit of good ol' honky tonk piano. You can almost see yourself in the Double Deuce from the film Roadhouse. Patrick Swayze with his arms crossed is in the corner giving a knowing nod to the band who are providing good clean wholesome entertainment to the Southern revellers. The retro sounding Matthew E White was a big player in my 2012 as I was super impressed with the track Big Love. I enjoy his more up beat songs such as this new track from his second album due out on 9th March but if you prefer his more laid back approach, check out Tranquilly too which was a song he wrote for the late great Philip Seymour Hoffman of whom he was a big fan.

Mysteries - Authenticity Machine (2014)

Moody, doomy and the closet thing to Elbow since Elbow? Mysteries are..well a mystery. Although they are based in Los Angeles they 'supposidly' have not even revealed themselves to their LA record label, Felte. If true, they've taken the let the music do the talking to the next level. This appears on their debut album, New Age Music Is Here

'Rock 'n' Roll is Cold' has a lovely retro warmth as well as being insanely catchy. Love it.

Don't want to talk about music - 'ecpt to say that the remastered PG is so, so tempting and this rough cut of 'Trampled' is tremendous - but I do want to kick the shit out of cancer. Fuck cancer! Thinking of you all.
