Of Rust & Bone

Hefty day of  mental turbulance today kids, both good and bad. A mixed bag, if you will. We feel like we’ve covered the entire work-related stress spectrum back and forth several times between the hours of 10am and, well, just now when we’ve just been told we’ve organised something well in advance and evidently have completely fucked up the dates, or date rather. Don’t worry if you’re someone we work with and reading this. It’s all in hand. We’ve got people who are far more with it than we currently are on the job. It’s really not all been bad though; we kicked ass in numerous ways today, but also got ours soundly whipped equally as much (but not more, weirdly. It’s like the fuckin’ Force is in balance or something). We went and saw Adi Ulmansky do a DJ set/actual show at a a record shop in Soho on Friday evening (pre-shit getting real, as per Saturday’s Track Of The Day), with one particular song containing lyrics pertaining to how her life is something like a rollercoaster, and how these ups and downs make her stronger, or something like that. Right on, Adi. Hit the nail on the head. It’s like you KNEW this shit was going to happen. Cool. Moving swiftly on to something that we’re certain even we can’t balls up at 11pm on a Monday night is in asserting how fucking cool this excellent track from new-guy (or guys – of course we know next to bugger-all as to our current Track Of The Day’ers ID, which is a good thing because we probably would screw up in divulging that information right now were we actually inclined to do so) Of Rust & Bone. Here’s what we do know – Mr. Sam Duckworth of Get Cape Wear Cape Fly fame is involved in terms of mixing and/or production duties on an EP that is currently being put together, presumably from which Next To You is lifted; Of Rust & Bone is/are playing a fistful of festivals, including Great Escape which is cropping up real soon (and don’t we bloody know it), Beachbreak and Barn On The Farm; and this track is emo as hell to us right now, drawing on a powerful mix between the musicks of Daughter, The XX, Keaton Henson and Elliot Smith. This is also one of the strongest and moving vocals we’ve heard as of late, no doubt amplified by our storming-yet-lathargic mindset right now. Listen up and get emo with us.
