31/01/11 - The Creep.

The Lonely Island - (2nd album)
Ok so i have already chosen my track for today, but this is too good to be missed!
The Lonely Island have previously released Youtube hits such as "I'm on a boat" and "Jizzed in my pants" i think everyone must have seen one or t'other by now.
This is a new one by the very same guys and it features Nicki Minaj. I love the whole thing! The track, the T-rex arms, their moustaches and outfits.
If you fancy a laugh check it out...

31/01/11 - I follow rivers.

Lykke Li - Wounded Rhymes.
Some of you might know Lykke Li for 'Im Good, I'm Gone' as heard in that awful stripper movie thing with Lindsay Lohan.
She is very talented - Lykke, not Lindsay!
"I follow Rivers" Is most definitely my "Track of the Day" it has wormed its way into my head and i don't think it will leaving anytime soon...

30/01/11 - Month of May.

Arcade Fire - The Suburbs.
Go jump on the sofa, and also the bed - whilst you have this turned up loud!
"Month of May" is by no means a favourite, but it saved me from boredom whilst sat in a traffic jam on the M25 today. If you like it
perhaps check out the rest of the album. Neon Bible and Funeral are winners also.
I have a lot of room in my heart for Arcade Fire, do you?
P.s. If anyone see's Win Butler send him my way?

29/01/11 - You think i ain't worth a dollar, but i feel like a millionaire.

Q.O.T.S.A - Song's for the Deaf.
This is more of an album of the day then a track of the day - so i am going to post my favourite track from the album as
the "Track of the Day."
"You think i ain't worth a dollar, but i feel like a millionaire" is perfect for those types of days when everything is a big, confusing jumble. If you are having one of those day's i recommend you play this, but make sure you have some sub's and the volume upped to the max! This is a bit different to everything i have posted so far, so if you are unfamiliar with it, and plan on full volume, be ready...

28/01/11 - I'll try anything once.

The Strokes - Heart in a Cage B-Side.
O.k, so as you can tell, today is going to again break the "Track of the day" convention as this is my second post.
I just can't help it. The mix of enthusiasm for trying something new, mixed with my love of music is resulting in this.
"I'll try anything once" is a mellow, slightly sombre track, it is contrasting when compared to their other upbeat tunes.
If you are a movie wizz you might have heard it recently in Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere" in the scene where they are drinking tea at the bottom of the pool. Heaven.

28/01/11 - Frontier Psychiatrist.

The Avalanches - Since i left you.
This has been a long time favourite for me, i think the first time i heard it was when i was around the age of 14 - i believe i still have an ex's C.D of the album poking around somewhere.
The song and the video are both equally fascinating to me, if Dexter wasn't insane before, he well would have been after watching this.
I don't know what else to write about this track, it definately leaves me gobsmacked.
Anyway the beat is great, so is the man-turtle... Have a ganders.

27/01/11 - Listen to your love.

Mona - (Trouble on the way?)
O.k. this is my last and final "Track of the Day" for today. I promise.
I recently won some tickets from Q Magazine to go and see these men from Nashville in our very own "Lundan".
They are expected to be big this year, and by the sound of their debut single "Listen To Your Love" i would put money on it!
Check them out, and let's try to restrain ourselves from comparing them to Kings of Leon shall we...

27/01/11 - I think i'm paranoid.

Garbage - Version 2.0.
"I think i'm paranoid" was released in 1998, and i have loved it since then.
It pop's up to say hello in my itunes every now and then, and when it does i can't help but listen to it excessively.
Garbage, Shirley Manson, post grunge. Enough said.
Oh and can you tell that i am well over keen on this whole blog idea. It might need renaming to "Track of the last 10 minutes"...

27/01/11 - Undertow

Warpaint - The Fool.
Ok, so technically this is my 2nd "Track of the Day" today, but it needed to be put out there!
After the initial attraction to this song for sounding like Nirvana's "Polly", i have had "The Fool" on a constant
spin on the record player. It took me ages to figure out what it sounded like but i think that is it!
There is a somewhat nostalgic vibe created within the track listing. (Which isn't what i would expect from L.A)
Well worth a listen. Prop's to this all girl group.
Do you hear the similarity to "Polly"?

27/01/11 - My love goes down.

Plan B - The Defamation of Strickland Banks.
Take a listen to this and see if it was what you were expecting from Plan B.
This stunning bit of soul definately makes a change from Ben Drew's usual.
If you love a bit of vinyl make sure you pick this one up, it is a beaut'.

26/01/11 - Rolling in the deep...

She make's me proud to be from the U.K.
The following track 'Rolling in the deep' is from her upcoming album entitled 21,
it is another winner from her showcasing her incredible voice and talent.
This definately fits the day that i have just had.
