Seven Ark

This week’s top new tune was the idyllic ‘Sixteen’ by Seven Ark. Sorry I couldn’t find a better piccy for you but if you have a google yourself, you’ll see that finding info about Mr. Ark is very, very difficult. Aaaanyway.. ‘Sixteen’ is prime glitch-pop, juddering along with bass clunks and a rhythm section comprised of teensy-tiny crickets. Check out the album, ‘Noise Of The New’ (on Neo Ouija) it’s full of great melodies and surprising twists and turns.

The best old track was Johnny Smith’s ‘Jaguar.’ Even though it’s 53 years old, this track is still startling and quite lovely.
