TRACKS OF THE WEEK 27-11-2016 - Matt Woods, Sleaford Mods, Baloji

TRACKS OF THE WEEK



Sfw:-
Matt Woods - Nothing Less (2016)


Cornish singer/songwriter Matt Woods has this electronic-pop thing down to a T.  The fat synth and soul drenched vocals reminds me of Jack Garrett and would probably get me to busting some moves at the local discotheque (God forbid).  Don't let that put you off as it is rather good.

I am not a huge fan of Radio 1, but if they are not playing this every hour, then their musical controllers need a good telling to.  

Old Pa :-
Sleaford Mods - TCR (2016)

 

The lads are back with a new a new E.P. TCR. This is definately up there with their very best, 'LATERR'....'Elvus has left the fooking building' move on folks with the Sleaford Mods. Sorry got to go to the garage I'm going to get out that old Scalextrix set. Total Control Racing.

Flycasual:-
Baloji - 'Spoiler' (2016)


An absolute corker of a track! 'Spoiler' is taken from Baloji's current EP, 64 bits & Malachite, and still manages to effortlessly blend the old and the new, fusing traditional Congolese Rumba with Hip Hop and ting. The video actually contains 4 generations of Congolese musicians. I loved his 2011 album, Kinshasa Succursale and this is more of the same, infectious and innovative, audio peri peri houmous!

You're dead right Old Pa, 'TCR' is right up there with the very best from The Sleaford Mods. Brilliantly observed and funny as hell. Single of the week!

Old Pa, The Sleaford Mods are fookin' brilliant. "that look can do one". I love this track, great reference to Rioja drinking too. Going out is for young people.
