Tracks Of The Week
Car Seat Headrest - 'Cute Thing' (2018)
Thanks to Flycasual for sending me the track 'Drunk Drivers/Killer Whales' early last year. It was immediately one of my #tracksoftheyear then and I still love it now. This track is almost as good, whilst still being amazing. When researching the song I found that they use some lyrics from 'Ana Ng' by They Might Be Giants which is one of my favourite 70 tracks by them (they've got so many great tracks for me). I'm looking forward to checking out their latest album 'Twin Fantasy (Face To Face) which is a reworking of their 2011 album.
Damien Juradado - Over Rainbows and Rainier (2018)
Any release by Damien Jurado usually gets into my top tracks of the week. Here is another!
It's from his latest relasee 'The Horizon Just Laughed,’ which is out on Secretly Canadian on May 4th. It's his first self-produced album. Interestingly, it's available to purchase on May 4th, and available to stream via Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora on July 6th. All vinyl pre-orders will be shipped to customers one month early, on April 9th.
I think having the physical release available prior to the streaming services is the way to go. It encourages the purchase and places a little more value to this thing we love called music. (comments below please).
Old Pa:- Sarah Blasko - 'Shot' (2018)
Here is a song from Sarah Blasko (an Australian singer) from her new album 'Depth of a Field'. She had a track a few years back, which was on my tracks of the year., but I'm dammed if I remember what it was. How sad is that. Old age I suppose. This is classic break up.
