JE SUIS CHARLIE
Old Pa's Corner:-
Daniel Knox - Blue Car (2015)
I like this track, America's answer to Richard Hawley. You have to admit a little similartity here. The tones, the sadness. I think this guy is definately worth a follow up and his new self titled album (his third) is out shortly. My track of the year so far !!
Pell - 'The Never' feat LV Baby (2014)
A standout track that almost made me burn my onions as I cooked my lentil stew (boring but tasty) last week. I heard it on a recommended playlist of 101 songs I apparently should have heard in 2014 and I'm glad I persisted through, as like my dish, it's dope. It reminded me of the psychedelic, trippy Hip Hop from the 90's, notably Digable Planets with the same Lonnie Liston Smith sampling bassline. 'The Never' is taken from New Orleans' Pell's album, Floating While Dreaming, which was out last May. Puy-fect....eh hem.

Nadine Shah - Stealing Cars (2014)
Awash with comparisons with PJ Harvey, the brilliant Nadine Shah gets our pulses racing with excellent Stealing Cars. With its driving percussion and a hook that would make Amir Khan proud, 2015 looks to being a big year for the Geordie singer/songwriter. This is class!
