The Wheel of Your Tune


We’ve now been through the alphabet once.  After double checking with you all, it seems you are happy to continue with this little feature for now or until I think of some other game to play!

This time through the alphabet, I’m challenging myself to stick to artists’ albums that came out this year.  Just to see if I can.

The Wheel of Your Tune works like this; I metaphorically turn my spinning top to reveal a random letter and number. The letter relates to an artist or the name of an album in my collection and the number relates to the track by that artist or on that album. This week’s spin landed on F8.

I’ve chosen the track Century from Feist’s album Pleasure.  I’ve mentioned this album on here before.  It is a much rawer sound from her to previous outings and I love that change.  I’m also glad to see her back in the Broken Social Scene fold.  So then, here you have my F8 track; Century by Feist featuring Jarvis Cocker at the end…

Other F’s I thought about were:

Father John Misty

Four Tet

Foo Fighters

Fleet Foxes

Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes

What’s your F8?

  1. I’m also really enjoying the Four Tet release, number 8 would be one of my favourites, You are loved, which I’m pretty sure speeds up a sample of Weather Report’s non stop home for the drums.
    In non-2017 releases I’d go for Fanfare Ciocarlia’s Ciocarlia Si Suite, their signature tune from their debut release in 1998 and basically a reworking of Goran Bregovic’s “Kalashnikova” from Underground.

  2. More Four Tet love from me. It is the only 2017 release from an artist beginning with the letter “F” I have.

    So, I shall have to go into the past for inspiration, and there is plenty to choose from, and my choice is probably an unlikely choice. It is the eighth track from the Flamin’ Groovies‘ 1971 album Teenage Head. It is called Doctor Boogie and it is here.

    It sounds remarkably similar to the Rolling Stones to my ears, but is also reminiscent of other bands.

  3. Can’t do this year alphabetically. This is from this decade though

    FUK – Cider Violence.
    A different recording is track 8 on their (presumably deliberately) cheesily named New Wave Of British Punk album
