modmod Vinyl Sunday – Suck It and See (By Arctic Monkeys)
Song Of The Day – Black Treacle
Every time I play the Arctic Monkeys’ vinyls, I wonder where is the sticker label with the strong warning saying ” All Arctic Monkeys’ songs should be played on vinyls, cos that’s how they are meant to be heard!”
How can any opening tracks be as astsounding as “She’s Thunderstorms”? The vinyl keeps spinning giving out a handful of that analogue vitamins one will need for the day.
Then the second track “Black Treacle” comes in, and I don’t believe there are any song writers since the 21st century could get any closer to Alex Turner’s poetic genuine talents , the peak of the song is when he sang the below impeccable lyrics and the guitar riffs kicks in, OMG, the riffs with that rich vintage analogue stream of waves injects through my chin and right into my heart like current.
Now it’s getting dark and the sky looks sticky/ More like black treacle than tar/
Black treacle/ Somebody told the stars you’re not coming out tonight /
and so they find a place to hide
As the 3rd track, most vintage heavy rock and roll track, “Brick by Brick” bangs in and wakes my weary soul, the strong drumbeats from the vinyl is so soothing comforts via my throat to my stomach filling all the voids. “The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala” is another track that dissolves my soul with such poetic romanticism. The first 4 tracks of the album are almost perfect and I could keep repeating them 4 tracks for the rest of the day.
All tracks are great in the album, just my usual habit to flip it to Side B after listening the first 4 tracks in the A side and play there from the 8th track”Reckless Serenade” to the last track ” That’s where you’re Wrong”.
After playing the last track of the LP, I felt starving and toast a few soft bread I bought from Ikea, served on the “Slice & Serve” by JosephJoseph. It’s the greatest relaxing Sunday afternoon I’ve had for the past 3 months from endless traveling and work.
