This is my soundtrack to the week that was…check it out if you’re that way inclined on my Spotify playlist
Deftones – You’ve Seen the Butcher
I’ve not a clue what that’s a metaphor for but what a tune. Claustrophobic atmospherics, a grinding riff and a stunning vocal from Chino Moreno. Lovely jubly.
Lamb of God – Contractor
A vicious slice of metal, intensity personified. Look out for the pummeling kick drum coming out of the break down.
Bob Dylan – One More Cup of Coffee
Lyrically rich but also contains one of Dylan’s best vocals. He leaves behind the feret-in-need-of-a-locket for something that might be called gymnastic by his standards
E.L.O – Telephone Line
A lesson in song craft. Ok they may have been a poor man’s Beatles with spaceships but Jeff Lynne knew a thing about melody. Reminds me of my dad playing air guitar with what would have an 8ft guitar if it were real.
As recommended by Matt from Kodiak Jack/TapetoTape fame. An instrumental that rises to many crescendos before breaking your heart. Reminiscent of Mogwai and Isis. Lush.
Taking Dawn’s cover of Fleetwood Mac’s The Chain
It’s got the harmonies, “that” bass riff and a rather spiffing double kick outro.
Soundgarden – Like Suicide
This has everything that is great about Soundgarden; hooks, depth and passion. Kim Thayil also plays one of my favourite guitar solos. Ever.
Bad Company – Feel Like Makin’ Love
Paul Rogers might just have the best voice in rock . Macho,this one’ll make you strut like it’s 1975 . Makes me want to grunt.
Viking metal, whats not to like..?
love and hugs
