MUSIC WEEK #5

Ba ba ba baaaa! You've stumbled onto, purposely visited, or was forced to check out this list of music that I have written about over the past week. It's been a good week. All you have to do is take every day as it comes and have some good music to come home to - or to walk around with. We all love a soundtrack to our lives; anyone could make one of those, comprised of different songs for different activities of the day, separate days of the week, different times of the day... music is that universal I think. How does sound do this to us? I need to read what Pythagoras thought about all of it.

But for now let's get our list on.


BOYS GET HURT - B E A C H
Sunshine party Justin-Timberlake-samplin' music from Tokyo duo

THE FIN - MISTY FOREST
Mellow and rustic indie from Japan

BOTTLESMOKER - BOREDOM AND FREEDOM
Indonesian duo soar away with electronic sounds

POSTILJONEN - SUPREME // HOW WILL I KNOW / ALL THAT WE HAD IS LOST
Slow-house romantic 80s electro and a Whitney Houston cover in that style

INTERVIEW: BOTTLESMOKER
The guys from Indonesia explain the freedom of music

ON AN ON - GHOSTS
Cool heartfelt indie number

SLOPPY JOE - ONCE AND FOR ALL
Jangly 80s style guitar pop (à la The Smiths)

BRAQUEBERRY - BLAQUE WON
Bizarre-yet-fantastic fuzzy electro

THE DODOS - CONFIDENCE
Rock and a masterclass in raising the roof

ALMA ELSTE - JULIAN
Chill heartbreaking acoustic from Paris

MYRRYRS - IS IT TRUE?
Samply

MOUNT KIMBIE FT. KING KRULE - YOU TOOK YOUR TIME
Guttural talk-rap-singing and powerful garage-like sounds


And there you have it. It's so difficult to pick a favourite. Hmm. For the sheer difference, I'm gonna say Braqueberry's 'Blaque Won' - I really dig that song. But then again... ok then, how about top three: 1. Braqueberry 2. Sloppy Joe (just can't get over that Smiths vibe) 3. Bottlesmoker (love that sound). That was really hard. Now I'm going to sleep cause I wrote this at 2:30 this morning #lol #planning.
