FTRK #79 = "What to Say" by Born Ruffians


What to Say - Born Ruffians (2010)

Born Ruffians manages to bring the concept of a lack of ideas into an appropriately simple, relaxing groove. Frontman Lalonde's falsetto drives the flavour whilst guitar, bass, drums and synth all support his quivering but expressionate voice.

FTRK #78 "Ruin" by Cat Power



Ruin - Cat Power (2012)

Ruin begins with a classy piano melody and Carolyn's relaxed vocals, both of which pleasantly drift between staccato and smooth pronunciation. The transition during the buildup and introduction of guitars and solid precussion comes in like sheets of silk.
