Another week, another opportunity to share with you the tracks which have caught my attention over the past seven days.
The Black Keys continue as strong as ever with an exclusive track to tour ticket buyers ‘Next Girl’. The duo stick to their much loved blues-rock sound which has served them so well over the last decade. Next Girl will feature on the The Black Keys’ upcoming new album Brothers, which is set for release May 18th.
‘So Something Good Can Work’ is finally getting a release, awesome! When the single goes on sale there will be an exclusive iTunes bundle available to buy featuring numerous remixes, one of which is this remix by Ted & Francis. The remix plays on the summer theme of the track and video and subtly adds an even more chilled out nature to the original.
Suckers’ sound treads a fine line between weird and brilliant. Think a mixture of Yeasayer and previously featured The National and you’re around the mark of what Suckers are aiming towards. This new version of ‘Black Sheep’ has just been released as a preview to the bands debut full length album Wild Child, due in June.
A newer, more serene sound coming from The Bloody Beetroots on this track. The inclusion of a string section and the exclusion of the usual screaming and hard hitting beats shows these masked gentlemen aren’t just a one trick pony.
