TRACKS OF THE WEEK 01/11/2015 - The Chills, Guy Garvey, The Weeknd

3 tracks dedicated to the guy who gave his medal out, Top Man!

The Chills - Molten Gold

Its been 20 years since theses New Zealand guys released a complete new album. Here is one of my favourite tracks I have heard this year from the new album Silver Bullets (2015). Very appropriate and well done the All Blacks, I got their Rugby Shirt...only 'caus its black and 'cause I like it and 'cause i'm dark today.

Guy Garvey - 'Angela's Eyes' (2015)

I didn't have a track this week, until I decided to clear up the humongous pile of leaves that had fallen in our front garden and pathway. I looked on Spotify for new releases and saw 'Courting The Squall' by my fellow 6th March birthday celebrant. My first thought was 'Oh no, has he given Elbow the .... erm Elbow ??' But upon listening, I didn't care. The first track on the album, 'Angela's Eyes' is brilliant. It's edgier than a lot of Elbow's recent hits and will almost certainly be featuring on this persons #tracksoftheyear

The Weeknd - 'Can't Feel My Face' (2015)


We were watching The Graham Norton show the other day and The Weeknd (pronounced weekend) was performing. He was introduced as being an online sensation but I'd never heard of him. I think that means I'm getting old! Apparently he uploaded a few tracks anonymously as 'The Weeknd' onto YouTube and boom! Put that together with some hype from fellow Canadian, rapper Drake, and that should do it. I didn't think it would be my cup of tea so I was pleasantly surprised with what I heard. It was a funky disco style track with vocals that aren't far from a young Michael Jackson. Infatuation described as not being able to feel your face, love it!

Old Pa, Jelly Babies in the video, what's not to like!? Pretty good track, reminded me a bit of China Crisis, bizarrely.

LS, I've heard this a couple times now and it gets better every hearing. Gave the album a spin too and so far so good. It'll be interesting to hear him and what influences him without the other Elbow band members. He swore!

SH, I saw him on Graham Norton too and I know what you mean about MJ now you mentioned it. Great tune! He released a sort of saucy concept album in 2012 which was pretty good and worth checking out. I Can't Feel my Face has been played almost 300 million times on Spotify! What!?
