  • Long time listeners will know of my love for Baltimore Maryland millennial alt rock duo Wye Oak. They've reunited in their new adopted home city of Durham North Carolina (the home of their record label) and have released a brilliant standalone track, Fortune (Merge digital single 2019). They're touring in Spring 2020 but only in the U.S., though it might mean a new LP out then. Can't wait. Until then, enjoy the sheer brilliance of this. Buy here: https://wyeoak.bandcamp.com/album/fortune.

    • Now get down and groove to the late 60s psyche groove of Nicole Yun's Tommie, from her solo LP Paper Suit (Kanine Records 2019). Nicole is the lead singer & guitarist for Roanoke Virginia band Eternal Summers, who've released five albums. Buy here: https://nicoleyun.bandcamp.com/album/paper-suit.

        • I first encountered The Chromatics with their performance of the beautiful song Shadow in the first episode of Season 3 of TWIN PEAKS.

            Yes, it's a great song.

            The disgusting thing is how the video is in black and white and RED, to make you think of blood.

        • I agree with Garf. I thought this black and white video with red colour was depressing. Other video clips of different bands I enjoyed. But, this video, Psycho in black and white. Depressing. Others may feel different.

          • Thought I'd get in first. My favourite rendition of my favourite Christmas Carol!

            • I agree with wadsy concerning this rendition of a Christmas carol. Very pleasant to listen too.

                • Life Studies were an 80s group from Gloucester and that's all I know about them, sorry! Anyway, hope you like this. Girl On Fire is one of the three tracks from their sole release, Homeward (Occasion 7" 1983).

                  • Next in our line-up of 77 punk bands is Suspects and the live track Nothing To Declare, from the compilation Live At The Vortex, Volume One (Vortex Records 1977), The Vortex being a London punk club. Love the guitar riff.

                    • Vanishing Twin (https://www.vanishingtwin.co.uk/), named by founder Cathy Lucas after the medical syndrome (in tribute to her own twin sister whom she absorbed in utero) and this is the official video for Magician's Success, from their debut LP The Age Of Immunology (Fire Records 2019), available here: https://vanishingtwinmusic.bandcamp....-of-immunology. If you love Broadcast or Stereolab you'll love this.

                      • And as it's the first Saturday of the month, we conclude our history tour through the 60s U.K. Top 10 singles of The Rolling Stones with Jumpin' Jack Flash (Decca 7" 1968), which reached No.1 in the U.K. and No.3 in the U.S.. These are the official promo films for it and the masterful B-Side (one of my favourites of theirs) Child Of The Moon. Their next single, Honky Tonk Woman would be their last (top ten) single of the 60s, which is where we started this odyssey last year (has a year gone by already?). Until next week ...
