TRACKS OF THE WEEK - 03/05/15 - Slaves, Ryan Adams, Lau,

Three tracks to welcome a Princess......

Slaves - 'Cheer Up London' (2015)

Cheer up London! What a bloody racket!!

Sfw featured the Tonbridge Wells duo at the turn of the year and they've slowly but surely become one of my favourite bands. In fact they're probably one of the best UK bands around. I was fortunate enough to catch a bit of their Latitude set last year with 'White Knuckle Ride' very much a highlight. So with sold out gigs, a busy festival circuit and a growing fan base, they'll be household names in no time, no bovver! They've even blown the budget on the above video. 'Cheer Up London' is taken from the band's forthcoming second album, Are You Satisfied.

Ryan Adams - I Do Not Feel Like Being Good (2015)
Ryan Adams has been releasing a number of EPs since last years self-titled album. Some have been great where others haven't been up to the Adams grade. However, this is is bloody good. It was recorded solo-acoustic in a single afternoon and has the feel of Heartbreaker material. It has been released as a 7" single (which interestingly have all sold out) but thankfully is available on spotify for the rest of us!

Old Pa's Corner :-
Lau - Ghosts

Here is a beautiful take of the fabulous song Ghosts by folk group Lau. This is a live version from 2012 but there is a studio version on their new album The Bell That Never Rang (2015).

Sir I was born here
So where would I go? 

Track of the year alert!

Here is the album version you can find in Soundcloud if you can'not wait for my birthday tomorrow. My prezzie to myself tomorrow too.

Sfw, I'm going to agree with Old Pa here, this is definitely one of the best tracks he has done. I love the old Blues feel of it, amazing.

Old Pa, another excellent track. For some reason I can just see Frodo and his crew duffing up some Orcs.
