Actually it wasn’t all that lazy, there has been so much to do. But here are some music picks for the week – don’t miss the Sister Hazel double album if you’re in the US, and the Turin Brakes track is the pick for the UK.
|USA||Mamaya||The Souljazz Orchestra||Take a brisk walk with this loping world-jazz track|
|UK||Leave Me In Love||The High Wire||From the stylophone opening to the subdued vocals you know it’s chill time. It gradually perks up. Not bad.|
|USA||Perfect World||U-Melt||Reminds me of Pink Floyd in some ways, a pretty good chill prog rock|
|USA||Album: 20-in-10||Sister Hazel||Really good Sister Hazel sampler. 20 excellent rock tracks, the best free download in ages|
|UK||Apocolips||Turin Brakes||Very good track from a reliably good band. Rich & innovative sound with a travelling pace.|
|UK||Rocket (Richard X One Zero Remix)||Goldfrapp||Strong dance track that Goldfrapp fans would grab anyway but the rest of us are likely to enjoy too.|
One more thing – seems that there are downloads of the SXSW music showcase after all, assuming you have the patience for about 6Gb of torrent.
