TRACKS OF THE WEEK - 05/04/15 - Camel Power Club, Andy Shauf, Giant Sand, India Electric Co.

Four tracks to make your bunnies dance this Easter...

Andy Shauf - I'm Not Falling Asleep (2015)

I'm Not Falling Asleep by Canadian singer/songwriter Andy Shauf is my current tag line. Rather than case of insomnia, I blame my daughters current sleeping habits (or lack of)!  Its sombre tones feature a clarinet - I can't remember the last time I heard a clarinet! 

London Scouser :-
Giant Sand - 'Transponder' (2015)

Last year I was privileged to meet the great Howe Gelb and for my recent birthday, Shellhunter bought me a ticket to see Giant Sand play in London this June. I'm really looking forward to it and was over the moon to hear this new track. It's a dreamy song that could easily transport me to the deserts of Arizona and is bang on form.

Old Pa's Corner:-
India Electric Co. - Lost In translation (2015)

I like this one by India Electric Co. it is from their new album  The Girl I Left Behind (2015). Quite difficult to define, but interesting enough for me to want to hear the album. This sound fresh and original. So much potential, I must say I am looking forward to the album.

Camel Power Club - 'Tagada' Feat Akin Yai

Thanks to Sfw for the heads up with this track, it is indeed right up my alley. Instant impact from the French Indie duo, providing a laid back groove for Benin/US rapper Akin Yai to flow over. The perfect song to get you out of a hump!!...sorry!

Andy Shauf - very good. Never heard of him but I like this a lot. Nice video.

Giant Sand - How many records has he made now? Must be tons. Nice and odd.

India Electric Co. - Yes, worth keeping an eye on. Nice plinky bits.

Camel Power Club - where do bands get their monikers from these days? India Electric? Camel Power? Still, no worse than Led Zeppelin or Toe Fat, I suppose. Bit too smooth for my tastes.

Sfw, rock Clarinet! What's not to like!

LS, this is very good and evocative as you say. I'll look out for the album and look forward to babysitting/attending the concert in June.

Old Pa, spot on with the comment, 'interesting enough to want to listen to more'. It's how I felt.
