Quick justification run down then. It will be quick, as times are a-busy at present. Here we go. Be warned – this is quick. For reasons I can”™t go into I”™m not going to be so wordy today. My mouthbox is all broked up.
Interest in the Whitest Boy Alive and Kings of Convenience stem from my love for Erlend Ã˜ye. Maybe it”™s the subtle voice, but it seems to work with so many applications. This triple slice of honesty is enough to kick off the slightly more chilled and introspective playlist.
Broken Bells put out their first album this week. “The High Road” has been on constant rotation on my personal playlists for a while now. I”™ve always been a sucker for Mercer”™s voice and this track showcases just what it is I love about it beautifully.
I”™m not a regular passenger on the MGMT express train, but “Youth” is so the song to curl up to, all starcrossed, in a quiet bar without a care in the world :-)
Xploding Plastix”™s “Treat Me Mean, I Need The Reputation” has no place on this list. I”™ve been meaning to put it on one of my Spotisfactions for a while. It”™s just a slice of buttered chaos-on-toast of drums, bass and some a piano straight from the ball room of hell. Oh, also, it kills any “chilled vibe” this playlist had with a spastic hammer.
“Idunno” by Ungdomskulen really grabbed me when I heard it last week. It just sounds like a guitar rendition of a theme you”™d find on Rygar on the NES. Nobody can pronounce the band name though.
Serena Maneesh – “Drain Cosmetics” is a wicked track. These guys are starting a tour with The Depreciation Guild this month I think. I think these guys are pretty special and definitely worth a listen.
Yes, it”™s short. It”™s not fantastically descriptive. I will make great pains to go into more detail for my next post. Think you can do better? Prove it and submit some playlists. I know there are a few of you out there who have expressed interest in a playlist and haven”™t sent on yet. Please, please do. And the playlists we”™ve had thus far have been fantastic and I want to thank each and every one of you personally with words and a drink. This is fact. Submit playlists, get beer. Until next time, bye.
