Tip of the Week: Louise Golbey - Same Old, Same Old (Maida Vale session)
Last weekend, we descended upon Maida Vale studios with a dozen or so very talented bands and artists for the BBC Introducing Weekender. For each act, we've put three session tracks online so you can listen in full, as well as photos of them recording in the legendary studios.
Over the next few weeks, our local radio shows around the country will be broadcasting tracks from the Maida Vale Weekender. If you tune in to 1Xtra this coming Sunday, you'll hear Twin B, Ace & Vis, Sarah Jane and Ras Kwame picking out their favourite tracks from the sessions as part of the HomeGrown season.
Huw's third pick, the newly-crowned BBC Introducing Tip of the Week, was Louise Golbey with her gorgeously stripped-down acoustic version of Same Old, Same Old. This was the track which earned Louise a slot on our Glastonbury festival bill in 2009 after she uploaded it to us and caught Ras Kwame's attention. Here's Huw with the full session track:
Louise has recorded a track with Example and is also working with Dizzee Rascal's protégées Newham Generals. Her How It Is EP is out now, with production from 8trak and by Mercury Music Prize nominee, Drew Horley.
