The Midweek Mix – 23/09/15

Here are the five tracks you need to hear this week.

Sunflower Bean – I Hear Voices

Rocky psychedelia from New York’s most promising new band.

Wolf Alice – Baby Ain’t Made Of China

A new-old song from Wolf Alice and one of the best B-sides I’ve heard for a long time.
Oh love me, make me better, and wash those tears away.

Battles – The Yabba

Who needs vocals when you have absurd music and an absurd video to match?

Chvrches – Clearest Blue

Let’s face it, I just love everything Chvrches are putting out at the moment.
Will you meet me more than halfway up?

Foals – Mountain At My Gate

I have really rediscovered my love of Foals with their new material from What Went Down. Such a great sound.

The Midweek Mix – 02/09/15

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 Woodsa 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.

The Midweek Mix – 17/06/15

Jamie xx – I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times) ft. Young Thug & Popcaan

Not my usual taste, but doesn’t everything Jamie xx touch turn to gold?

Red Faces – Katie Come Home

These Sheffield boys have supported The Strypes and follow in the trend of baby-faced boys inspired by music from way before their time.

Foals – What Went Down

Foals are back and don’t we know it. Their fourth album is set to be loud, brash and aggressive in just the right measure.

Man of Moon – Hit The Road

Following the current trend of successful two-piece bands, Edinburgh-based Man of Moon have been pushed to the forefront by BBC Introducing. Great things surely lie ahead.

Monogram – Romance

More new music from Scotland! Recorded in a cabin on the Scottish borders, Romance builds up into an anthemic pop song full of ambition.
