13 Oct The October playlist
Every month we provide you with some nice tunes. Our October playlist is filled with sunny vibes to conquer this autumn rain and drizzle. Earplugs in, world out.
Foxygen – How Can You Really
Only one year after the geniuses from Foxygen released their debut, they’re back with a new album. How Can You Really is more poppy then their previous work, but it takes you back to the smell of beer and grass on a summer festival. Cheers to that.
Cults – Abducted
The two-piece bedroom project Cults has grown into a true indie underground value. Abducted might be their most lovelorn and pollendusted song made. It takes you to flower fields in spring and lets you forget about your winter blues in no time.
Caribou – Our Love
Ever since Caribou released his single Our Love in August and the eponymous album at the beginning of this month, we can’t stop playing it over and over again. Dan Snaith, you are god.
Crossbeat – Uprising
Good choice of name for their first song on their first EP. The Belgian band Crossbeat is uprising and sound a bit like Bonobo and Massive Attack made a baby. One to watch!
Flying Lotus – Never Catch Me
Care for a party? Experimental multi-genre producer FlyLo is praised in the underground scene, made a track with Kendrick Lamar and can’t get out of our head with his Never Ever Catch Me, nooooo.
Phosphorescent – Song For Zula
Not a new song, but an all time favorite. On Song For Zula, Matthew Houck, the mastermind behind the band, sounds like he went to sleep to wake up at an unknown shoreline somewhere where the air is colder and the winds blow harder.
SBTRKT – New Dorp, New York
SBTRKT never disappoints. This song was all over the place last summer. It brings us back to wild and warm nights, sweaty festival tents and dirty dance floors.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah – Coming Down
Although we’re not very convinced Clap Your Hands will ever be as good again as they were on their first album, this song takes us to a very high place. Does Matt Berninger – The National – have something to do with that?
Raury – Cigarette Song
Future star Raury shows us again how versatile and talented he is. Cigarette Song starts off gentle and acoustic but builts throughout. Listen to the lyrics. He’s not as sane as he sounds!
