Track Of The Day: Death From Above 1979 - 'Trainwreck 1979'

Apologies for the lack of activity on the site this past week. My new full-time job and a delay in broadband being installed at my home has meant that I have had no spare time in which to publish articles on the blog. However, after having bought a brand new laptop and awaiting for my internet to be sorted on Monday, RW/FF will then become even more active and regular than ever before. Death From Above 1979 were a band who I never found out about until after they reformed in 2011. Released in a few week's time on September 9, 'The Physical World' will be the first DFA1979 album in a decade. From it, the awesome 'Trainwreck 1979' is an absolute belter of a tune that shakes itself around inside your head and lodges itself there... Speaking to NME, the band's Sebastian Grainger explained that the new LP partially came to fruition to appease their fans: "No matter what Jesse (Keeler) and I do, on whatever scale of success it’s sat on, there’s always some kind of reference to Death From Above. It’s only frustrating because it’s so lazy. So we’re putting out a Death From Above record and if the press is like, ‘It’s not what we expected,’ or however they react to it, it’s like, ‘Well, you’ve been fucking asking for it.'"
