31 songs: part 3
The end is nigh (at last). Part three of three of my 31 desert island songs list. Normal blog posts shall soon resume.
- Postal Service - District Sleeps Alone Tonight
Last December I got into loads of new music. Postal Service was one of the best I found, they're fantastic.
- Public Service Broadcasting - The Other Side
Another band I got into last year, during my Mercury Prize love phase. I found this in a list of artists that should have been nominated but weren't. The whole album, Race For Space, is brilliant, but this is particularly special. It's bizarrely motivational.
- Relient K - Must've Done Something Right
I saw the lyrics to this song on Tumblr. Googled the lyrics, loved them so much I got hooked on the song. I have a blog named after a line. They're so cute.
- Damien Rice - The Blower's Daughter
My favourite film (if you hadn't guessed) is Closer, and this is the song through the titles. This track got me into Damien's music, it's sorta wonderful.
- Andy Shauf - I'm Not Falling Asleep
This track's off my favourite album of 2015, The Bearer Of Bad News, and this song is somewhat hypnotic. Yes, it did influecen that song I wrote. A bit.
- The Streets - Fit But You Know It
This song is fantastic I don't care what anyone says it's the ultimate song of Britishness it's amazing.
- ticktock - A-A-A-
ticktock got me into European electronica and this was the first song of his I heard. Again, hypnotic, and it reminds me of summer so I love it for lots of reasons.
- Frank Turner - Cleopatra In Brooklyn
Safe to say ti was a bit difficult for me to choose one of Franky T's song for this. I Am Disappeared has been my favourite song for about a year, but when the Mittens EP came out, this began an instant hit for me. I once listened to this about a million times and then dance down the underpass in Derby. No shame.
- Twin Atlantic - Serious Underground Dance Vibes
Again, I love this band and most of the song they come out with, but this is a consistent favourite. Or Actions That Echo. That's also good.
- Wolf Colony - Beauty
New York electronica artist, wonderful voice and general music vibes. He remains anonymous. It's cool. This album, Unmasked, is great.
- The Wombats - Let's Dance To Joy Division
Second favourite song of all time. Not sure why, I loved it when I was younger and somehow I still do.
And, that's it. Normal posts shall resume on Monday!
