My New Favourite’s Doggy Style

I have found a new musical love this week and I just couldn’t wait to tell you all about them, and this is love so don’t expect any intimate details, I really think this band is the one and I want it to last. They’re called LEMON TEAR GAS and all I really know about them is they’re from Sheffield (what is it they put in the water up there?) and they are punk funkers hence MR George Clinton fronts up there Myspace. ‘Hey Kids’ is particularly outrageously good, this is the equivalent of an all night session with the one you love when they’re feeling especially dirty. Love it.

LTG aside had quite a few frustrating couple of weeks full of ‘Brand Nu Deja Vus’, thinking I’ve discovered a new tune and then realising I talked about it two months ago, Cadence Weapon and Team Waterpolo being the most prominent. I guess it’s a start of the year thing with tracks that leaked out finally getting the official treatment, I wonder if the labels will ever catch up with the fans?

Two tracks that I’m pretty sure are Virginally New are:

A) My first ever exposure to Welsh Dubstep! MONKEYDUBZ’s ‘Venus in Firs’ is an incredible piece of new music that is genuinely new by which I mean its not just a new track but a new kinda sound which I’ve never heard before. The best description I can muster is ‘California Soul Dubstep’, it’s incredible and exactly the sort of track we need out there challenging us to push forward musically (Professorial rant over and also confession time… this comment is kinda ironic as this tune contains a massive old sample!)

B) THE DREAM – ‘Ditch That‘. Know very little about this dude or the track but heard out on Wednesday and really enjoyed its funky vibe.

Right I need to go and try to do a Brand New Top Three that isn’t totally full of Lemon Tear Gas tracks!
