The Top 200 of 2015 – 51-100 / 151-200

101. Will Adlard – Oh Heart That Beats

Oh heart that beats
I’m jealous of your need”

His dad’s a blues musician, and the band he formed with brother Ed overcame being described as “a posh XX” by The Telegraph to secure an Ivor Novello nomination.
Will Adlard’s debut solo EP “Poleaxe on the ice” has been a year in the making and it’s a glorious combination of bluesy soul or is that souly blues? Notorious talent spotters Poejazzi recorded him live last year and described “Somehow” as “one of the most emotionally provocative tracks we have heard in a long, long while” (watch the live session below).
“Oh heart that beats” has more of an electronic feel than the rest of the EP, with a Kraftwerk-esque synth backing Will’s forlorn voice. Check Will’s bandcamp for the pay-what-you-feel EP plus there’s a beautiful Bob Dylan cover.

102. Fews – Ill

The Fews were the 12th release on Speedy Underground, a label with a 10 point set of rules for all it’s recordings. Chief among those being that everything must be “recorded in one day, mixed within twenty-four hours and mastered immediately afterwards”.
