For the last installment of doves guest editors appearance at Q music online. Jimi has chosen ‘Omega Time’ by Malakai, to be Q The Music’s Friday “Track Of The Day”, as part of Doves’ role as guest editors of the website this week.
Jimi Goodwin (Doves): “From their album ‘The Ugly Side of Love’. Bristol madness! Think Jeff Barrett (Doves’ label boss at Heavenly Records) turned us on to this. Reminds me of things like Madvillain/Madlib/Edan psychedelic hip hop. Really thrilled that they’re going to be supporting us on our April/May tour.”
Here’s a quick recap of the week’s picks.
Monday: Jacob and the Angel by the Invisible (Jimi) Tuesday: Tonight’s Today by Jack Penate (Jez) Wednesday: Sea Within A Sea by the Horrors (Andy) Thursday: Extinction by the Soft Pack (Jimi)
Andy & Jez also talked to Q about all the albums. Here are the links:
Andy Williams (Doves): “I love the darkness and atmosphere to this song. An inspired pairing of them & Geoff Barrow on production. I love the arpeggio synths, echoes of Joy Division and New Order. A really brave record.”
