Four tracks that were like musical viagra......
George Ezra - Budapest (2013)
I saw George live at the Thekla back in March and was blown away by this baby faced assassin. His music is a nod in the direction of Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie but his raw, emotive voice gets the ladies swooning. He's only released a couple of tracks but is touring in the UK in September & October and I highly recommend you catching him near you in the next few weeks - trust me, I'm a Doctor!
Tirzah - 'Inside Out' (2013)
This was a bit like an intravenous hit, well sort of, it instantly got my attention when I first heard it on a Ninja Tunes staff picks playlist (try saying that after a few) on Spotify. A brilliant track that starts off with a sinister like industrial beat which is at once softened by Tirzah's soothing voice, the warped synths just add to the fun. Tirzah is the protege and school pal of Micachu (Michacu and the Shapes) who produced the impressive I'm Not Dancing EP from which 'Inside Out' is taken. We'll be hearing more from her fo sho'...

Richard Buckner - When You Tell Me How It Is (2013)
I have not listened to too much music this week (you know, things to do and all that) so when it came to do TOTW, I felt it would be a bit of a struggle, then I remember liking a track by Richard Buckner which I had heard earlier in the week. I checked it out again and was hooked. It is a hard one to pin down. There are elements of folk, elements of Mexicana, elements of rock. Oh! well Americana fits the bill then, Good enough for me.
I for one will be checking out his new album 'Surrounded' (2013). This is good stuff.
