The Saint has rooted out this week’s horsemeat to leave you with a delectable platter of only the finest fresh musical beef (or Quorn for you veggies!).
Primal Scream – ‘2013’
They’ve been around for more than 30 years and they’re still on top of their game. ‘2013’ is the politically charged leading single of Bobby Gillespie and co’s upcoming album More Light
Jagwar Ma – ‘The Throw’
Hailing from Sydney, Oz, these guys have a delightful vibe of the 90s Madchester scene about them. Just picture Bez, but with a cork-hat and a didgeridoo in substitute for maracas and hard drugs.
Kurt Vile – ‘Wakin’ On A Pretty Day’
Ever since Kurt Vile came out of the shadows with this sunny nine-minute long treat, the sun has been raining down gloriously over St Andrews. He also bears an uncanny resemblance to a certain long-haired Son of God. Coincidence? It all adds up.
Romare – ‘Taste of Honey (From The City)’
The London/Paris producer returns with a new EP Love Songs: Part One next month. This medley of break-beats, layered vocals and warm synthesisers is all you need in the meantime.
White Fence – ‘Pink Gorilla’
One time collaborator with Ty Segall, Tim Presley’s new one has such a 60s surf vibe to it you feel the impulse to pop some acid and run into The North Sea. But then again, it’s bloody freezing out there and The Saint does not condone such behaviour.
Hamish James Hawk – ‘I Wish You Well’
Hamish James Hawk is one of the many talented musicians on the St Andrews-based sub-micro DIY label, Common Records. He recently played with his label mates on a mini-tour of Scotland. It’s jaunty, flighty folk with an acerbic twist of wit.
