TRACKS OF THE WEEK 15/03/2015 - Jack Garratt, Sleaford Mods, Kiddus I

Three tracks to treat yo mamma to...

Jack Garratt - 'The Love You're Given' (2015)

This track has picked me up after a few weeks of melancholy,  London singer Jack Garratt's perfect blend of James Blake-meets-Damien Rice is the antidote for the blues.  Its like drinking a glass of vino on a sunny porch. Enjoy it, it reminds you that it is spring!

Old Pa's Corner :-
Kiddus I and the Home Grown band - 'Take a trip' (2015)


Here is a Reggae track from Old School veteran Kiddus I. And I kid you not this is rather good. I will just have to listen to his album as this is the only thing I have heard and I love it lots and lots and lots. It is time, It is time, Africa is Calling, Africa is Calling!

Sleaford Mods - 'A Little Ditty' (2014)

Not really new but I've been listening to quite a bit of the vitriolic, 'Punk-Rap', Nottingham duo since I caught their Chubbed Up Singles Collection album at the tail end of last year. Unabashed, foul mouthed social commentary on the state of modern Britain never sounded so good, like a cross between The Fall and The Streets. A Little Ditty is taken from Divide and Exit which was also released last year. As a special treat, check out 'Jobseeker' from their Singles Collection, hilariously vicious!
