TRACK OF THE WEEK 20/10/14

Flesh - Vauxhall Casanova Flesh flesh flesh flesh flesh. Yes. New 4 piece sleazy slacker band from Manchester tore it up last week at the Castle Hotel supporting Man Made.

LIVE: Ella Eyre, Manchester Ritz, 7.10.14

LIVE: Ella Eyre, Manchester Ritz, 7.10.14

It’s a chilly October evening in Manchester and there’s a huge tour bus outside the Ritz ready to take Ella Eyrearound the UK in luxury. It looks very fancy from the outside anyway; I haven’t yet been invited to hang out. Eyre is able to tour in style now, selling out the Ritz and other majors venues on this tour after only being in the mainstream music business for just over a year – impressive…

Wonder Wonder – Shark

A mysterious track for this mysterious duo. The only information the world seems to know about Wonder Wonder is that they’re a “songwriting duo” and that they will be releasing a new song every month for the next year. A cool idea and great marketing strategy in all honesty. So far it’s definitely working.

Sharkis the second track released by the anonymous pair and it’s a…

Blake Mills – If I’m Unworthy

So, it’s 16:06 on October 6th and I have my first uni lecture in 25 minutes. I’m rifling through my notes trying to find new music to put on my blog because I forgot to do it and I’m in a rush and then I find this bad boy. Blake Mills is a singer-songwriter from Los Angeles and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world having just stumbled upon this track.

If I’m…

Jo Rose – Balcony Doors

Okay so basically I’m cheating. Not started uni yet and forgot it’s Monday so I’m just pasting my review of Jo Rose’s debut album Spurs that I did for Gigslutz. Recommending the first track Balcony Doors because it’s lovely and there’s a live version below. Cheers.

The Americana feel of Jo Rose’s British songwriting is the key to his unique appeal. Although born and raised…

Girlpool – Jane

This rootsy, ballsy all girl guitar duo knock it out the park on this track. Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad’s Americana vibes run deep through this track with the drone-like bass line and twangy guitar riffs. If anyone compares them to Deap Vally I shan’t be pleased because they’re awful. And that’s just rude to Girlpool. The excellently subtle switch between unison and harmony…

Catfish and the Bottlemen – The Balcony

If you haven’t heard of Catfish and the Bottlemenby now, I mean, where’ve you been? Even if you’ve literally been under a rock there’s no excuse. Catfish have been anywhere and everywhere – making it to almost every major radio stations’ playlists including Radio 1, being in Zane Lowe’s Hottest 100 Tracks of the Year and filling their summer with festivals plus UK and USA tours to come. It’s…

GoGo Penguin – Garden Dog Barbecue

A rare and exciting new development for my blog, not my usual indie nonsense as some would like to call it, but some good ol’ jazz. Few who read my blog will know that despite listening and loving music, I also play. I’ve played the trombone for about 8 years now, and my favourite thing to play is jazz. There is nothing more enjoyable than playing jazz for me,…

Only Real – Pass The Pain

I mentioned this absolute lad in last week’s post, went on his soundcloud and he’s got a new track! I didn’t even know! Inspiration for being a lad comes from this pic – taken from a new video out next week (will edit post when the video is out)! Fruit loops rock.

 Pass The Painis probably  Only Real’s grooviest and  exciting song for a long  while. With the same rough…

Jaws – Swim

So, here we are, start of August, 2 months since my exams finished and I’m finally getting my act together and blogging again. I need to do this more let’s be honest. I do write a lot for Gigslutz properly so this is just my side blog. I’m hoping to do more posts about stuff that’s going on industry wise rather than just track reviews and recommendations.

This week for me is easy…

The Boy I Used To Be – Man + I Can’t Stand

Okay, I’m back. I do apologise, mainly to myself as I promised to keep this up and haven’t, but I’m back. No need to waffle on further.

This weekend just past, I went to Truck festival in Oxfordshire and it was just wonderful. I saw so so so so many super bands in just 2 days – Little Comets, Dan Croll, Circa Waves, Saint Raymond, Peace, Superfood and…
