my musical picks for week 45
Sometimes I do wonder if my mind is blown. I’m sat here in the studio trying to reflect on what the heck I’ve done this week and I’ve got nothing man, nothing but the Void. Well before today slips away here’s what went down. I met up with SocialMediaTodd, a cat I met a few months ago at the LeamTweetup. We met at the Coffee Bean Caffe, a new watering hole that just opened up last week in Leamington Spa. It’s become my watering hole choice. The ladies there are lovely. And Nicole, the owner of Coffee Bean, is a super warm woman who, even though I’ve only know her for a short time, I can tell she wears her heart on her sleeve. Opening up this caffe is the realisation of a dream for her. Good on her. Not enough of us turn our dreams into reality.
Anyway, I don’t really feel like being all heavy on a Friday night. So let me jump to sharing some of my favourite musical finds for week 45.
Let’s start with a three piece rock band out of London called the Pistol Kings. I’d love to see these guys live. They sound like the kind of band that would be fun to listen to up close and personal.
PISTOL KINGS – RUN ROGER
RADSTEWART – INSANE PARTIES
I’m feeling totally insane, so this track from Radstewart is fitting for me this week.
SEINABO SEY – PISTOLS AT DAWN
Let’s get this shit done! Seinabo Sey is exactly right, the time for pussy footing about is past. Pistols at Dawn is a great ‘draw a line in the sand’ song.
BRITISH INDIA – WRONG DIRECTION
We’ve all been there before, excited about something new, a new path, a new direction and all of that, on;y to discover a miles down the road that you’re going in the wrong direction. The only thing to do in that circumstance is to yell FIDO and turn around or find a new road.
ROBY FAYER – READY TO FIGHT (FEAT/ TOM GEFEN
Fight for the one you love.
NARROW PLAINS – SO REWIND
I’ve had the good fortune to interview these guys once and this week our paths crossed which made me think to go checkout their Soundcloud page and yeah this too is cool.
CURB – COMMUNICATION
I’m not sure why this song conjured up memories of my father, maybe because we don’t talk much? Hmmm maybe, I don’t know. The song certainly isn’t about father/son relations. But it is about communication breakdown.
SAN CISCO MUSIC – RUN
Time to run indeed, and run far, far away. OK peeps, hope you enjoy these. Hit me up with some of your discovers this week.
If you’re a band and want to share your stuff with me, drop a couple of tracks in my SOUNDCLOUD group.
