Sleaford Mods - 'Mop Top' (2017)


I'm late getting into Sleaford Mods and I have no real excuse. My fellow TD team members have been singing their praises for a few years now. I happened upon their latest album 'English Tapas' and haven't taken it off repeat for the past few weeks. There are so many great tracks that leave me LOL'ing to myself at the clever lyrics. This track is no exception and it has a great dance beat running through it. Having watched the video I've decided that the guy who doesn't sing is my role model, I could be in a band and (appear) to do nothing, that's right up my street.

SFW:-
Luke Sital-Singh - Hunger (2017)


Check out this emotional performance by Luke Sital-Singh of his new single Hunger which features on his new album Time Is A Riddle.  If I appeared on Mastermind, singer-songwriters would be subject of choice (apart from Star Wars, but that's too geeky), I just yearn that when that time comes, Mr Sital-Singh will be as successful as Mr Sheeran or that Mr Styles and I'd be shooting answers about him like Han Solo shooting Greedo. (remember Han Shot First!).  Alas, we are still waiting for Luke to have that massive breakout hit, will this be it? Call it my New Hope. 

O.K., I'll get my coat.

Run The Jewels - 'Thieves (Screamed the Ghost' feat Tunde Adebimpe (2017)


My current weapon of choice from one of my favourite albums of the year so far, Run The Jewels 3. Tip Top production, excellent instrumentals with two MC's on top of their game. 'Thieves' also features Tunde Adebimpe from TV on the Radio which, as the French say, adds a little 'I don't know what'. 

Old Pa:-
Dan Auerbach - Shine On Me




It's summer, it's Dan Auerback, with a little nod to the Travelling Wilburys, be happy!

Dan Auerback's tune sounds like a cross between Pete Townshend's 'Let My Love Open the Door' and Tom Petty's 'Running Down a Dream'. It'll come as no surprise though, that my pick of the week is the Sleaford Mods track.

London Scouser - These boys make you want to pick a fight in an empty room. The musical equivalent to Craig Bellamy....I do like Craig Bellamy

Flycasual - I like this. Got me tapping!

Old Pa - Mr Swede is spot on. How about some ELO? It's a ditty tune.

LS, Sleaford Mods are just brilliant, spot on social commentary and funny too. I'm sure beat maker, Andrew Fearn will have something to say about your comments, he's as integral to the band as ehm Chris Lowe is to the Pet Shop Boys.

Sfw, it's unlikely that Luke will play the dizzy heights of Jabba's Palace like perhaps Ed Sheeran, just the warm up for Star Wars Cantina band. And he probably doesn't have a sleeve tattoo and everyone needs one of those.

Old Pa. Travelling Willbury's indeed. Great stuff!
