TRACKS OF THE WEEK 30-08-2015 - Low, James Vincent McMorrow, Tigermonkey, Tirzah

Four tracks that gave us an aural workout....

Tirzah - 'Make it Up' (2015)

A track that wouldn't be out of place at an after hours music club at Jabba's Palace. Original and full of quirks, London's Tirzah, really impressed me with last year's No Romance EP, with all manner of bizarre beats and curious basslines. 'Make it Up' is the latest single release and for me she's definitely one to watch, her brand of freaky Disco is right up my street.

Low - No Comprende (2015)

Here is a brilliant sample from the new Low album  Ones and Sixes (2015) out in shortly. I am sure this must have been played a lot back in Blighty. I only heard it the other day and have been playing it constantly ever since. I am of course looking forward to the album.

James Vincent McMorrow - How To Waste A Moment (2015)

There is no way that James Vincent McMorrow can be seen as your typical singer/songwriter.  His debut album followed the usual blueprint, i.e. guitar, falsetto, beard (nothing wrong with that!) but his follow up was the complete opposite.  This is excellent and gets you thinking about all of those wasted moments, family, friends, career, the list goes on and on.  Don't miss out on any more and listen to this.

Shell Hunter:-
Tigermonkey - 'Zooby Doo' (2015)

It's absolute nonsense but I love it. This track is taken from the new nutty Ribena advert which had me at hello. I can't find out too much about Tigermonkey other than, and I quote from their website: "London based gangsta-nerd duo with sassy lyrics N fat beats". Yep they do exactly what it says on the tin. Perhaps a short shelf life but it hits the spot for me nonetheless. Check out their other songs Smelly Boys and Bad Bitch for equally fun madness!

Old Pa, nice and bleak.

Sfw, I really like this and for me unexpected. Bizarrely, all I can picture is a forlorn Don Johnson in Miami Vice!?

Oh and SH, definitely the theme tune for your daily poolside Zumba class in Cancun!
