Jack's Top Tracks - Electric Swing Circus EXCLUSIVE FIRST PLAY

As if hosting what looks to have been a barnstorming success  of a festival last weekend (I am talking about Swingamajig, in case you didn't realise!), The Electric Swing Circus have also just announced that they are releasing their album tomorrow. In a statement on Facebook they said.

We have a release date! Our debut album is out this Thursday May 9th at 18:00!!! We are very excited, and literally can't wait to show you guys.

They have already made one track from the album available for free download, which you can find here. However, as if that was not enough to whet your appetite, I am proud to announce that I can share another of their album tracks. For the (albeit brief) period of time between me publishing this post and the release of the album, this will be the only place on the interweb where you can find this song, or get a further taster of what the album has in store. So without further ado, I give you "Little Phatty" a growling jungle inspired, high tempo thumper.

Brand Spanking New

Electric Swing Circus - Little Phatty

I have been fortunate enough to hear the album already, and can say with some certainty that it delivers. There are tracks that will be familiar to readers of this blog, plus lots of great new material. I particularly like the variety - the album goes from the bouncing, joyousness of the early tracks through a reflective, almost melencholy middle through the intenseness of the track I have just shared, and back out the other side, closing with 'Summer Swing', which sounds a lot like something Skeewiff would have made - it has all the hallmarks of a festival anthem.

I have not yet had a chance to allow the album to fully sink in yet, but my initial feelings are that the guys can slap themselves on the back, and that those who funded them will not regret having done so.
