Here's my 5, you'll be happy to know Shitallica don't feature this week, but have a go with these bangers,
Polka Never Dies - The Dreadnoughts. The band suggested to me after I listened to revbob's 5 on Deezer. I've mentioned it before but they have an interesting IMCT connection, Suzanne's (though I was on the site after her) boyfriend at the time was the bassist. Anyway, this song is fantastic and can imagine it'd be amazing live. Great energy.
Around Us - Jonsi. Stunningly beautiful song, the build ups throughout the track are perfect, leading to the final epic chorus. The atmospheric last couple of minutes are spot on too.
You're Not Alone - The Enemy. A band that came and went over here. First album (which this is taken from) had some great tracks though their output after failed to hit the same spots. This song is the bollocks though, great energy, uplifting and decent lyrics. Always liked the line, "there's just too many dreams in this wasteland for you to leave us all behind."
Grandad's Flannelette Nightshirt - George Formby. Onto something lighter, this is classic Formby - good, fun melody, cheeky innuendo filled lyrics and a great banjolele solo at the end. He made the playing look easy but his strumming and rhythm was insanely precise. Been playing myself for over 10 years and don't come anywhere near his standards.
Out Of Nothing - Embrace. Ok, so no Shitallica but Embrace are back. An emotional roller coaster of a song. Starts soft and delicate with some beautiful keys twinkling away. Explodes with some of McNamara's finest, heartfelt vocals and the chaotic musical finale is sublime. Listen loud.
