TRACKS OF THE WEEK - 20/06/16 - Exmagician, Summer Flake, Case Lang Veirs,


exmagician - 'Place Your Bets' (2015)

Despite forgetting their capital letters (I am constantly reminding my son, that's why), exmagician are my band of the moment.'Place Your Bets' is the first track that got me under their spell and is taken from the Belfast duo's excellent debut album Scan the Blue. The life long friends have collaborated before on the David Holmes produced, Cashier No9 album, To the Death of Fun (Oh Pity being a TOTW back in 2011). Similar in style but with perhaps a bit more psychedelica thrown in, siting Captain Beefheart as a major influence (yes Old Pa, that got your attention) the album is definitely worth your aural time!  

Summer Flake - Shoot and Score (2016)

It's very apt that Wales will be playing 'ball-foot' against the mighty Russians on Monday night. Hopefully, it will be the boyo's in red who will shoot and score more than putin's bruisers.  We dare to dream.

Case Lang Veirs - Atomic Numbers (2016)

Wow! a girl Super Group and these girls don't come bigger (in a nice way) Neko Case, K.D. Lang and Laura Veirs. This is a gret track with great production. I have listened tothe album once and will definately be going back. It is interesting and filled with superb harmonies. Each artist shines through. I don't normally like the Super Group thing but this works.

Sfw, good track this, a Bale 25 yard screamer.

Old Pa, another good one, a tap in this one but they all count. Great harmonies as you say.
