Any sitting on the sideline issues with the new Bloc Party track ‘Mercury’ have been well and trully kicked in to touch by the awesome CSS mix!
And can’t believe I forgot to mention earlier in the week this new ‘this must surely be Justice in disguise or else someone has nicked their studio settings’ track called ‘Stand On The World’ by an artist called KEEDZ. Its got more than air of D.A.N.C.E about it which we all agree is a very good thing non? Will sound great in the sun at a festival.
Maybe it was becasue I was so in awe of an artist I expereienced (that is definitely the appropriate word) live for the first in the last seven days. YOAV is incredible. Amazing presence, amazing voice, amazing tunes and actually quite different. He basically plays dance music accoustically or certainly his songs have the energy and euhporia of dance tracks, but played on an acc guitar with him busting out some beats on the bottom of the instrument, amazing! ALL his songs on his myspace are worth checking.
As are a new band called SWOUND! I heard on Jon Kennedy’s Exposure. As well having a highly infectious funky punk vibe they’re clearly very nice guys judging by the lyrical message of ‘What’s Your Poison’ which appears genuinely concerned about the welfare of sharks. Ahh.
