It’s May and that means Great Escape, Sunshine and END OF MY DEGREE! However, we’ve got a few weeks to go yet, so lets lament on the great month of music that was April.
This playlist includes beauties from Merchandise, Bonobo (my favourite album of the month), Lorde and Gambles. However, my favourite track of the month ‘Supposed to Be’ by Tom Odell isn’t up on Soundcloud, so i’ve posted the YouTube link below for your listening please.
Every song they have released has been perfect. This one is no exception. It will be released June 16th. They also play TGE this May. See you at the front?
I have wanted to make playlists for this blog for ages, and this morning I was having a read around Skeletory‘s blog (amazing blog, check it out) and I realised that Soundcloud allow you to make sets!? I don’t know why I never realised this before, as I’ve listened to loads of sets but never thought about making one.
So this first playlist is a summary of my favourite tracks of this last month. Be prepared for playlists for every occasion, festival and season of the year. Looking back, it’s been a good month for music. Ahhhh…
A while ago I posted a track by trio London Grammar, the gorgeous ‘Hey Now’. The track came with Facebook page and not much else. With no info on the band, I was left to assume that they wanted to be ‘mysterious’. A lot of other bloggers also posted the track and did a better job at seeking info about the trio out than me, and it turns out they’ve actually been around for a while, gigging in London before recording these two tracks.
Fronted by the luxurious sounds of Hannah Reid, the three piece make what I would describe as trip-pop. It’s got the essence of Massive Attack and Portishead while also appealing to fans of Florence & the Machine and Adele. I think this has potential to be massive.
The band play a headline show at London’s Electrowerkz on March 27th but tickets have already sold out.
Gorgeous track from a mysterious London trio.
