Rebecca Peake's track for today is simple, epic rock. Gritty electric guitars, humming bass and ferocious drums all lend themselves to 'The Magewind'. The whole thing gains a sense of scope and adventurous scale half way through, looking out across vast plains and mighty oceans. Peake knows how to control what she does to a single note, and that precision makes everything sound finished, even when she's pumping them out every day. No vocals on this one, but the music speaks for itself. With something this fantastic, the singing has been stunned into silence, and I adore it. Stream 'The Magewind' above.
