the go! team
Here’s another phenomenal track from The Go! Team from their highly anticipated forthcoming album. Featuring “thunderous drums, duelling sitars and jangling guitars with a blast furnace melody”, check out “Blowtorch”. Band leader Ian Parton says: “I wrote the song just on an acoustic but when it came to the recording I had the idea of building it from chords from loads of different sources, so say the G chord was a second sample from one song, the D chord from totally different kind of song and it went on – the process of layering all these turned it into a wall of sound. Combined with vocals from Sudden Ensemble and Vinyl Tiger’s singer Doreen Kirchner it became this kinda bratty, super melodic thing.”

Did I know that The Go! Team were working on new music? Who knows, I can’t keep track of anything these days. One thing I can tell you is that the band is back with new music, and an album coming out March 24th on Memphis Industries. This record has bandleader Ian Parton writing, performing, and producing all of the songs himself (as in the early days of the group). First listen, check out “The Scene Between”.
I’ve got two brand spanking new copies of Me, Myself and Rye (Upper Class Recordings) by the Russian Futurists. This album, or compilation, hit the shelves this month and is an amalgam of TRF‘s hottest songs assembled from their three previous albums, all digitally remastered.
Paul Simon from Our Thickness
The bio sheet I’m reading here says the band hails from Cornwall… I always thought they were a Hamilton/Dundas band? Maybe I made the assumption because I’ve seen this band tour so much with other bands/artists from that area (Caribou, Junior Boys). This band seems to be really hitting their stride, now UK-label mates with The Go! Team and The Pipettes and touring with Peter, Bjorn and John. Frontman and primary songwriter Matt Hart is also making some waves remixing singles by bands like The Shout Out Louds and Stars.
Your Big Brown Eyes And My Big Broke Heart from The Method Of Modern Love
So listeners, fall into one of three categories. If you’re new to the band and you like what you hear, this might be the perfect record for you. If you’re a fan already, you probably have all these songs anyway. If you are a superfan, then you’ll just go and buy this record regardless.
CONTEST!!! I’ll send you a CD if you are one of the first two people to e-mail me with the correct answer to this question. What are the names of the 3 previous releases that have songs on Me, Myself and Rye?
