A new feature on Spotisfaction. Every now and again one of us will cobble together some rare (read: probably not on Spotisfaction) tracks that have made their way into our playlists for you to download. Yes, music to download. This week, I have:
- The Shins – Strange Powers (Magnetic Fields Cover)
- Phoenix – Lisztomania (Acoustic Spin Session)
- Florence + The Machine – Youâ€™ve Got The Love (The XX Remix)
- Four Tet – Angel Echoes (Caribou Remix)
- Hot Chip – Transmission (Joy Division Cover)
The Shins – Strange Powers (Magnetic Fields Cover)
Between The Shins and Broken Bells, I would almost forgive you if youâ€™d had enough of James Mercerâ€™s fantastic and distinct voice by now. Almost, but not quite. Perhaps this cover is just what The Magnetic Fields need to open up their music to a wider fanbase.
Phoenix – Lisztomania (Acoustic Spin Session)
Lisztomania (or Wrestlemania, as it has become known as in Spotisfaction Towers) is a fantasic song, and hearing it live and acoustic just reinforces the fact that Franceâ€™s hottest export Phoenix write beautiful songs.
Florence + The Machine – You’ve Got The Love (The xx Remix)
Iâ€™m not the greatest fan of Florence + The Machine, truth be told. But this reworking by The XX really hits the spot for me.
Four Tet – Angel Echoes (Caribou Remix)
I recently introduced my FiancÃ©e to Four Tet. I think it was Angel Echoes that really grabbed her. It is a pretty classic track. I implore you to check out Caribouâ€™s take on it.
Hot Chip – Transmission (Joy Division Cover)
This is one of my favourite Joy Division tracks. I canâ€™t imagine how this cover actually came about. Prepare yourself for something a bit different.
Tune in next time for MOAR of what is on my radar.
