Tracks of the Week
One of my favourite bands of recent times, Little Dragon, have a new album due out on April 14th called Season High. I just love lead singer, Yukimi Nagano's voice along with the band's low-fi, dreamy sound. Quite a contrast to the band name, so called because of Yukimi's fiery temperament.....I don't believe it. Something for me to look forward to this Spring.
The Jesus and Mary Chain - Amputation
This has been out for sometime but it is the first time I have heard it this week. Great to see the boys from East Kilbride back and running (I stayed there in the late 70's for 1 year) So I have always had a soft spot. This is pretty good with a what sounds like a familiar riff but who cares I love it.
I'm all over this band and their 60's inspired tunes. It sounds like it could have been a hidden Beatles track from their archives. It makes me want to just relax, shut my eyes on a sun lounger and listen on repeat. The band's second album 'Foxhole' was released earlier this year and it is a must-listen-to. The song 'Cremated (Blown Away)' reminds me of 'Love' and is just as good as this track.
Sfw:-Elliott Smith - I Don't Think I'm Ever Gonna Figure It Out
It is now the 20th anniversary of Smith's final solo album 'Either/Or' and a remastered "extended" version is now available which includes this "never released" track. I have spent the last few weeks listening through his work and 'Either/Or' is definitly (for me), his magical best and would not sound out of place if it was released yesterday. Sadly it was only in 2004, that I first started listening to him, which was only a few months before his tragic death.
