Morning folks. I’m not actually here today – I’m on a mini holiday in Stratford, and am posting this via the magic of scheduling. The weather is wonderful / atrocious (delete as appropriate), and I’m having a great / crap time.
Today’s playlist is by the wonderful Fozz, author and curator of our Gig Rig feature, and it’s a doozy. I hope you enjoy – this is one of my personal favourites.
Take it easy and see you all next week,
These are a few tracks that I’ve been listening to lately, found either off the back of other people’s playlists or from trawling through the related artists section on Spotify. Here are a few of the stand-out tracks. Hope you enjoy.
Interpol ”“ Lights: this is the first track to be released from Interpol‘s forthcoming self-titled album and it’s made its way onto Spotify, so it would have been rude not to include it really. If the rest of the album is as awesome as this track then it’s gonna be absolutely phenomenal and I’m really looking forward to it.
Graffiti6 ”“ Stone In My Heart: I bloody love this track, it’s one of the best things I’ve heard in ages. Hopefully these guys will keep churning out stella tunes like this.
Crystal Castles ”“ Baptism: I could never really get into Crystal Castles‘ first album but I thought I’d give their second one a go, and boy am I glad I did. Baptism, for me, is definitely the most notable track on the album ”“ it’s shouty, beepy electro at its finest. I’m gonna give the first album another chance.
Ou Est Le Swimming Pool ”“ Dance The Way I Feel: these guys first came to my attention towards the end last year when they released this track. At the time it never made it onto Spotify, but here it is now for your aural delights. [Editor’s note: The band’s lead singer, Charles Haddon, committed suicide last week after their show at Pukkelpop in Belgium – a truly tragic loss and our hearts go out to his bandmates]
Kele ”“ Tenderoni: best known as frontman for Bloc Party, Kele has released a solo album called The Boxer. I must admit that from what I’ve heard so far I’m not a massive fan of the album, but this track is definitely an instant hit.
