A fine playlist from last week. It works like this – pick a tune you heard this week and want to share, and add it to the playlist. Could be a new release, discovered or rediscovered oldie, a tune you stumbled across, or what you’re listening to these days, and add it to the list.
Caught up with a few more 2016 releases this week. Heard a Roxy Music cover in the drugstore, still have no idea who it was. Who knew there were so many covers of More Than This. Listened to Stuart Staples somewhat passably channel Brian Ferry, but kind of unimpressed by the Tindersticks this year. Animal Collective has to wait for another time, as it was a bit too bouncy for my current frame of mind. On the other hand, DIIV’s Is the Is Are was lovely and perfect. Was sure my pick from this week was going to be something from Aussie psych rockers King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, which is another from my printmaking teacher’s playlist. The languid God is in the Rhythm could be a long lost White Album outtake, while this year’s Robot Stop kicks it up a few notches. But i’ll be perverse and put up this one. Sorry, but it rocks – Raga rock with a bit of Iron Butterfly.
