    MALIBU SHARK ATTACK’S FIVE-TRACK SHUFFLE


    They describe themselves as “Trans-Atlantic Indie-rap duo featuring Rocky O'Reilly (Belfast) & Tribe One (Atlanta, GA) with lots of guests.” Rocky was once part of the hugely talented Oppenheimer, and has also recorded a who’s who over the last number of years too. Rocky supplies this week’s Five-Track Shuffle.

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: EMO • HYDE, WILL DE BURCA, & THE HORRORS

     

    Brian Eno and Karl Hyde have made some truly great music over the years, but that didn't guarantee that their collaboration on 'Someday World' would continue this rich tradition. Thankfully it works wonderfully on every track; never falling short at any stage. At times this sounds like Depeche Mode jamming with Tinariwen - spectacular!

    Will De Burca has been knocking out classy tune for the last number of years. 'Tomorrow’s Light & Darkness' is his debut album, which has exceeded the high expectations that I had for it. At times it's a throwback to early 90s electro (the good stuff!), but mostly it's an album that based very much in the present.

    ‘Luminous’ is album number four from The Horrors. It’s an album that could have been released almost any time over the past 25 years, as it could sit well with music in 1989, 1997, or 2002 as much as it does today. It’s what The Horrors do so well; their brand of psychedelic shoegaze that nods to many masters from the past.

    BURIED TREASURE – 'MY BEAUTIFUL DEMON' BY BEN CHRISTOPHERS

     



    Somehow this managed to slip by a lot of people's radar when it was released in 1999. 'My Beautiful Demon' sat somewhere between Jeff Buckley's 'Grace' and 'OK Computer' by Radiohead. Like both of those album, it was not an album that sat with any particular trend at the time. Christophers' bittersweet vocals are both fragile and powerful; making this album a true treasure for anyone who heard it.
