"Stone Cold Sober" - Paloma Faith
Starts out slow. Give it a minute - 'cause it breaks into a fairly slick mixture of Basement Jaxx & Esthero, covered in a thin layer of Marva Whitney. And that is NO bad thing.
"Back In The Game" - Jamie T
The heaviest British accent I've heard from a singer for some time. I'm fairly certain that I went to high school with this Cat, and that he's just faking that Cockney nonsense. Even still, if Jack Johnson had grown up surfing The Scottish instead of The North Shore - here's what he'd sound like.
"I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor" - Arctic Monkeys
Easily my favorite track of this week, and the best track to break the Friday morning funk. Crank it and tip your head to the person sitting next to you, even if the song doesn't apply to them.
"Stereo Flow" - Dada, Harris & Obernik
The making of a Friday Music Special is a very subtle art. You can't blow it out of the water. No shark-jumping allowed, got that chief? As such is the case, this is an excellent follow up to the previous tune. Bug out in your cube. You know you wanna.
"We Cry" - The Script (Radio1 Live Lounge)
I'm a massive fan of the Radio1 Live Lounge sessions, and this most recent one is no exception to the general goodness that comes out of that little drop-tile ceilinged room.
"Shimmy Shimmy Ya" - O.D.B.
