Edwyn Collins feat. Alex Kapranos & Nick McCarthy – Do It Again
If you're this far in and wondering why you should be excited by this week's Track of the Week then it's clearly because you're unfamiliar with the names of the characters involved. In which case, my friends, you've probably come to the wrong place.
It's the former Orange Juice frontman at his most pop and (half of) Franz Ferdinand at their most chilled. Somewhere between 'Walk Away' and 'A Girl Like You'. But nothing like either really.
There's a distinct chance that this is one of the best songs that you will hear that's been released in 2010. Mr Collins himself (via Twitter) has informed me that him and his co-conspirators “look sexy” in the video, although it doesn't seem to have surfaced yet. Strange considering it's out on 7” today (apparently) and is taken from the album Losing Sleep which came out in September.
Tomorrow we see the start of the Keep Pop Loud Festive 50. Which I'm sure you'll agree is orgasmically exciting.
