Track of the Day 21/09/16- Cass McCombs: Low Flyin’ Bird.

Perhaps this isn't the track of the album, in the context of Cass McCombs's splendid eighth record Mangy Love, his 1st release on the Anti Records label. However, in isolation it's track of the day for its understated, ephemeral quality. It may soar past you and you'll only glimpse it in your peripheral vision, but there'll be something caught in … Continue reading Track of the Day 21/09/16- Cass McCombs: Low Flyin’ Bird.

Track of the Day 20/09/16: Megadrive Lamborghini by Soccer96

For some odd reason, Soccer96's name conjures memories of International Superstar Soccer 98, the stellar Nintendo 64 game. On its cover, former Dundee player Fabrizio Ravenelli looks sternly at Paul Ince, like a souped-up version of the Smith and Jones head-to-head sketch.  The track title for today's track Megadrive Lamborghini fittingly references video games (of course there had to be some convoluted and tenuous link … Continue reading Track of the Day 20/09/16: Megadrive Lamborghini by Soccer96

Track of the Day (2 Oct 15) #4 Miles from Kinshasa – ‘IVRY’

When you Google 'Miles from Kinshasa', you're reliably informed of the distance from your location to the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo (it's 4,335 miles from Dundee - I don't live in Dundee. Darn location settings...) No, I wasn't sorting out my next holiday. It's the moniker of a new artist from South … Continue reading Track of the Day (2 Oct 15) #4 Miles from Kinshasa – ‘IVRY’

Track of the Day (1 Oct 15) #3 Jamie Woon – ‘Sharpness’

From what I've heard so far from Jamie Woon, his upcoming album Making Time, looks like it's gonna be a latecomer for album of the year. Other tracks like 'Message' and 'Thunder' wouldn't sound out of place on Radio 2 - with meticulous production, tight hooks and velvety hooks from Woon, it would be an … Continue reading Track of the Day (1 Oct 15) #3 Jamie Woon – ‘Sharpness’

Track of the Day (30 Sept 15) #2 Shamir – ‘Call It Off’

Hailing from the heated desert of Las Vegas, Shamir Bailey (a.k.a. Shamir, for those who can't bother saying surnames) released his hot debut album back in May. OK, it was a few months ago, granted, but this blog doesn't boast about having its finger on the pulse (most music blogs and sites cite some effervescent, fat-free … Continue reading Track of the Day (30 Sept 15) #2 Shamir – ‘Call It Off’

Track of the Day (29 Sept 15) #1 Love Ssega – ‘Minds’

Welcome to the first in a new blog series 'Track of the Day'. Today's track comes from Love Ssega. I played this track on my radio show last week, and like the social media wizard that I am,  I tweeted Love Ssega that 'Minds' was dominating the airwaves all the way from the top of … Continue reading Track of the Day (29 Sept 15) #1 Love Ssega – ‘Minds’

Wallpaper Tune #6 – Errors: Slow Rotor

Apparently soul singer Alexander O'Neal turned to crack cocaine after appearing on Celebrity Big Brother. The best rehab would be to put him on a flight to Turkey, hit a cocktail bar somewhere in Oludeniz, drink a few Long Slows and bask in the brilliance of this Errors track, just to console him that everything … Continue reading Wallpaper Tune #6 – Errors: Slow Rotor
