Band of Skulls – Sweet Sour (2012)

I purchased ‘Sweet Sour’ on the strength of the title track which got a huge amount of airplay in late 2011/early 2012. But ‘Bruises’ is by far the better track I think.

A song for every year #1

A good friend of mine has recently set me a challenge – name your favourite song for every full year of your life to date. Tricky! For me that means 55 songs but, as I like a challenge, I’ve risen to it. Here’s my starter for ten covering the years 2005 to 2014.

  1. 2005: Alabama 3 – Hello I’m Johnny Cash (from Outlaw)
  2. 2006: Arctic Monkeys – I bet you look good on the dance floor (from Whatever people say I am that’s what I’m not)
  3. 2007: Dizzy Rascal – Pussyole (from Scallywag)
  4. 2008: Camille – Money Note (from Music Hole)
  5. 2009: Dogbreath – Fit in (from Pale Face Baby)
  6. 2010: Cherry Ghost – We sleep on stones (from Beneath this Burning Shoreline)
  7. 2011: Laura Marling – Sophia (from A creature I don’t know)
  8. 2012: Band of Skulls – Lay my Head Down (from Sweet Sour)
  9. 2013: Stereophnics – Grafitti on the train (from Graffiti on the train), and
  10. 2014: Royal Blood – Figure it Out (from Royal Blood)

As far as the vid is concerned, well I’ve ummed and aaahed about this for quite a while, but will have to go for this one…
