Earworms 22 May 2017

Happy Monday! It’s all very intense this week. Hope it transports you to somewhere good, it certainly works for me. Thanks for the worms, please keep ‘em coming in, by sending your chosen .mp3 or link to earworm@tincanland.com, with a short paragraph about why you’ve chosen it. Thanks all.

I LIKE TRAINS – X – glassarfemptee: I know there’s a lot of love for iLiKETRAiNS out there. This is from last year’s album, ‘A divorce before marriage’. It is a sneaky track, lulling you into a false sense of security, then unleashing its real earworm at 4 and half minutes in. Then you’re done for.

Jon Hopkins – Immunity – DsD: I’m feeling more than a little bruised at the moment – emotionally, not physically. I don’t wish to elaborate and don’t need sympathy, but I am self-medicating with music. This ten-minute cocktail of JH’s electronica and KA’s falsetto, taken just before bedtime, tends to help me sleep as well as any massage or alcohol would.

Indian Ocean – Tandanu – Ravi Raman: Title track of their seventh album which also features the current line-up and has seven songs featuring seven different collaborations. Tandanu is just a rhythmic word and has no special meaning. The song is based on an old folk song from Karnataka.

Year of No Light – Perséphone (Enna) – AliM: I’m in the same place as DsD. Well, not literally because that would be weird and stalkerish. But my answer is to be noisy about it because otherwise it will fester. So here is a brilliant number, which I’ve already shared with Ravi; discovered courtesy of Spotify, and just the ticket. Best loud, with speakers/headphones.
