Taylor Swift – Wildest Dreams
It is imperative that we get excited about a new Taylor Swift video. Any self-respecting music fan can see that 1989 is not a guilty pleasure, it’s just absolutely perfect pop.
Foals – London Thunder
I haven’t really been hugely excited about Foals since I was obsessed with Total Life Forever quite a few years ago now, but hearing London Thunder has changed that. It’s fantastic.
Of Monsters And Men – Empire
Yep, them again! As I’m sure you’ve come to realise, I really, really love Of Monsters and Men. This week I read Emily Carroll’s Through the Woods, a magnificently creepy collection of graphic short stories with them as my soundtrack. A perfect combination.
Lana Del Rey – Terrence Loves You
Easy-listening, jazz club-inspired hypnotism. This is Lana Del Rey at her best.
Shopping – Why Wait
My new discovery of the week! Shopping are a post-punk London band who accidentally found themselves making anti-consumerist music.
