New Music Tuesday December 4th

A couple debuts, a surprise young entrepreneur, and a couple more.  All new to me, so ENJOY!
Sheila from Memory Tapes 3rd LP Grace Confusion                   From New Jersey, Memory Tapes is the chillwave moniker of Dayve Hawk that emerged in 2009.  Their video for Yes I Know was nominated for Grammy in 2011.

'See you don't bump his head' from Scott Walkers album Bish Bosch
This is Scott Walkers 14 album and the final of his trilogy (Tilt and The Drift).  Scott was a part of the 60s band the unrelated Walker Brothers, an American band that made it big in the UK.  British magazine Q awarded him on his contribution to the music industry.  Battling depression and making a 2006 documentary about his life, he has broken out his inner Frank Zappa on this album.

Thaw from Ed Tullett's debut album Never Joy
This 19yr old from the UK is not only a songwriter but a poet as well.  This tumblr page is well thought out but if he is on tour there is nothing about it online. This surprises me.  Debut? Get out there and promote yourself, Ed! Your indie birdlike voice should be shared with the world.

Ol St Nick from Hey Sholay's debut album ((O))
This is UK's own Hey Sholays debut album. Some bastards stole this bands equipment from their van while touring.  I'm tempted to support them by purchasing their album (which is a poppy rock chalk full of fun) just to help them with their loss.

Dirty Love feat. Iggy Pop from Ke$sha's 2nd album Warrior
From LA, this 25yr old has written for Britney Spears, Flo Rida, Paris Hilton, Katy Perry, 
Alice Cooper, and has worked with Rihanna and Nicki Minaj.  She's been  awarded by the AMA's and MTV.  Vibe Magazine acknowledged her talents by making her the first solo white girl to be the front covergirl.   I love that she included Alice Cooper on her album.  Now that I've raved about her resume, she's annoying,  I do believe this song would be a whole lot of fun live.
