So I didn’t make a playlist last month (boo!) So to make it up I have decided to put this mix in by Beaty Heart (lazy) If you are a fan of Animal Collective you will definitely like this mix. I would also recommend listening to Beaty Heart as they also do sound similar to Animal Collective and are a great band.
(from 4 minutes in is where it gets good!)
I have decided to start making monthly playlists of music that I think is worth sharing. So here you go!:
Montana by Tycho.
Scott Hansen A.K.A Tycho/ISO50 is an artist who I have been following for a very long time. ’Awake’ is his 3rd LP, which will be released through Ghostly International in March 2014. ‘Montana’ has already got me excited for the album!
Le Loup (Fear Not) by Le Loup.
I came accross this band from the ‘Habitat - Search the Horizon’ Skate video. It’s a good chill/laze track to relax to or go driving with. They are on Hardly Art Records
Dreaming by Seapony.
Another band on Hardly Art Records. I just came across these looking through their roster. It’s a good upbeat track to get you moving and in the right mood.
Afterlife by Arcade Fire.
I only just listened to their latest album ‘Reflektor’ recently and to me it’s the best they have put out. Also I’m very into LCD Soundystem and knowing that James Murphy has produced this album has made it very exciting to listen to.
Heavy Doctor by Thee Oh Sees.
I have been listening to Thee Oh Sees a lot recently and I am not even remotely tired of them. It’s a good garage noise rock band (if you can call it that) I highly recommend checking out more of their tracks if you are into just noise rock.
7/4 (Shoreline) by Broken Social Scene.
To me this is a good nostalgic song and their self titled album is always good to come back to. (Also my blog is named after one of their tracks!)
Cannons by Youth Lagoon.
Another good chill/laze track. The album ‘The Year of Hibernation’ has a minimalist feel musically, it’s a good easy listen to album if you just want to relax.
Cinnamon by Tripwires.
A great band from the UK signed to Frenchkiss Records. This track has a good level of noise and the vocals are easy and light. Go and listen to their album ‘Spacehopper’ you won’t be disappointed!
Come on Let’s Go by Broadcast
This month is the anniversary of the death of Trish Keenan. Broadcast to me are definitely one of the most underrated bands and still think are today. Come on Let’s Go is one of my favourite track by Broadcast. It’s eerie yet relaxing.
