TRACKS OF THE WEEK 31/07/16 - Sex On Toast, HÆLOS, Drive By Truckers,

Tracks of the Week

Sex On Toast - 'Oh, Loretta' (2016)

Dust off those espadrilles, sport a little sailor cap cocked to side and board your boat.....destination love! This is a hot piece of summertime 80's 'Yacht Rock' that'll get everyone groovin' on deck on the Basingstoke canal. It's has a great nostalgic vibe, perfect for serious lounging and with some great tongue in cheek lines like - "If you were a bus you'd be a double decker...yeah", it reminds me a bit of Beck's amorous ditty, 'Debra'. Sex on Toast's 'Oh, Loretta', was released last year, however the Aussie 10 piece has released their Ready EP with it as lead track. I'm off to stand in the paddling pool in my Speedos!

Check out the Ready EP at Sex On Toast's Bandcamp

HÆLOS - Dust (2016)
There is something nostalgic about 'Dust' as it reminds me of the classic "come down" records of the late nineties / early noughties. Although I'm far too old (and boring) to indulge in such things, I like this a lot. So if you're getting home in the early morning from Ibiza or more likely getting up to go to work. Give this a spin.  Available via Matador Records

Old Pa's Corner:-
Drive by Truckers - Surrender Under Protest (2016)
I always look forward to a new Drive By Truckers album but I do have to admit the last few albums have been a little disappointing to me since their peak of  'Brighter Than Creation's Dark (2008)' . But that was a very hard act to follow. Saying all that this is a real cracker and has whetted my appetite for the new album out later this year.

Old Pa, didn't really do it for me, I'm still living off 'Daddy needs a Drink'.
