Track of the Day: Marie Davidson – Naive to the Bone

It's Friday. You've just clocked out after doing a Dolly Parton and you're trundling through the rush hour traffic like a sardine in a tin can that's well past its sell-by date.  You need to shed that fusty workday skin and slip into something more comfortable for the weekend.  What better way to start than … Continue reading Track of the Day: Marie Davidson – Naive to the Bone

Track of the Day 29/09/16 – ‘Up to Anything’ by The Goon Sax

Australia is 'on point' - like a hip prepubescent character from Neighbours would probably say - when it comes to endearing indie music. Dick Diver and Courtney Barnett for example are just two excellent acts from Melbourne. For today's track of the day though, we turn to Brisbane for The Goon Sax. Formed in 2013, they consist of Riley … Continue reading Track of the Day 29/09/16 – ‘Up to Anything’ by The Goon Sax

Track of the Day 28/09/16 – ‘A.H.B.’ by S U R V I V E 

Every man and beast has probably watched Stranger Things now, the Netflix show that's captured people's imaginations with its blend of Spielbergian Sci-Fi and unadulterated nostalgia for the 1980s. The excellent soundtrack has also pricked up folks' ears - it's the brainchild of Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein who are one half of  S U R … Continue reading Track of the Day 28/09/16 – ‘A.H.B.’ by S U R V I V E 

Track of the Day 27/09/16 ‘New Song’ by Warpaint

Whenever a Warpaint song comes on the radio, every guitar scrape, drum beat and vocal seems to seep out the speakers with a haze of smoke, mystique and groove. Love Is to Die sounds like the James Bond theme song rejected for not having enough Bond clichés.  Meanwhile, their cover of Bowie's Ashes to Ashes epitomises the … Continue reading Track of the Day 27/09/16 ‘New Song’ by Warpaint

Track of the Day 26/09/16 : ‘No I Won’t’ by Evans Pyramid

Normally the best tracks hit you when you least expect it - during a listening session of Caribou's eclectic Spotify playlist on shuffle, this song came on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQpnyUvkURQ 'No I Won't' is a simple but effective slice of disco that combines the raw emotion of Stax soul with swooning pop strings and jerky new-wave guitar licks. It sounds … Continue reading Track of the Day 26/09/16 : ‘No I Won’t’ by Evans Pyramid

Track of the Day 23/09/16 – Lite Spots by Kaytranada 

Canada has been producing a lot of excellent records this year - Oh No by Jessy Lanza , IV by Badbadnotgood, and 99.9%, by producer Louis Celestin a.k.a. Kaytranada.

Track of the Day 22/09/16: On Top by Hoops

Hoops are not a band from the East End of Glasgow (one for the football fans out there) but come all the way from Bloomington, Indiana. Their output so far has consisted of sunny, low-fi psychedelic rock - Tape #2, Tape #3 and EP sound like someone's set foot across a treasure trove of demos from a legendary 80s cult … Continue reading Track of the Day 22/09/16: On Top by Hoops
