TRACKS OF THE WEEK 12-06-2016 - The Viceroys, Ryley Walker, Fujiya & Miyagi

Tracks of the Week

Ryley Walker - The Halfwit In Me (2016)

Chicago Singer-Songwriter, Ryley Walker has just released the glorious The Halfwit in Me. It reminds me of Nick Drake-meets-Tim Buckley a kind of Singer Songwriter/Jazz/Prog in one song? It shouldn't work but it does. It appears on his third LP, Golden Sings That Have Been Sung - out August 19th via the Dead Oceans label. He first came to my attention with last years excellent Primrose Green. 

Old Pa's Corner:-
The Viceroys - Why (2016)

The Viceroys have been going since the Seventies and have been quiet for a very long time. They are back with a bang with their first new music for about 16 years or so. But this is excellent and is a reminder how good the old roots music was. The dub version on the album is brilliant as well. 

Fujiya & Miyagi - Serotonin Rushes (2016)
Serotonin Rushes - Fujiya & Miyagi (2016) You can't beat a rush of euphoria, like the feeling when you finish a McDonald's, you find extra chips in the bottom of the bag. I doubt this track refers to anything like that though but the groove will definitely keep you wanting more. Serotonin Rushes is taken from Brighton based, Fujiya and Miyagi's upcoming EP, 1. Guaranteed to keep that Serotonin level topped up.
