I’ve been diving into old hard drives and boxes of CDs and been rediscovering some really great music and none so than Susanne Sundfør (David, I KNOW you’ll already be into this). Her Ten Love Songs album is pretty faultless – lots of Robyn energy with a smattering of ABBA – and this is a cracker, but I could’ve picked any of them.
We all like pop music? We like Stevie Nicks? We like this then. It’s pretty joyous stuff, straight from 1976 to 2020. (from the West Country, rather than California).
How beautiful is this? I’ve been looking for some guitar driven music to love and coming up short. This is right up my street and I love it. Coco are … well, nobody know’s too much really. Their ‘about’ section on Spotify doesn’t give much away either. Have a spin through the 3 tracks and let us know what you think.
It’s difficult to know what I really expected the next Sufjan Stevens song to sound like following the epic 12 minute+ ‘America’. The track list for the new album dropping at the end of Sept. was shared recently showing that ‘America’ will close the 15 track album out.
This track ‘Video Game’ will feature as third track on the album. And it couldn’t much further from America. The video features Tik Tok sensation Jalaiah Harmon performing her viral ‘renegade’ dance … which doesn’t really fit but of course in context does. How did that conversation go ‘Hey Jalaiah, do you want to star in a music video for a song about not wanting to star in music videos?’
For the avoidance of doubt … I love this.
How could I love Róisín any more, pt. 381847. (I know it’s Jools, but still) ♥️
Please tell me you know this …
It’s 21 years old. Ouch.
I know it’s been everywhere, but this is such a wonderful, summery record (and the video is ace too). Album is out, perhaps an AOTM?
Remember going dancing? Remember Ibiza? Remember 2007, Brother Nolan? I DO.
PS. the tune is a monster minimal techno banger called Duoteque – Logo. OOF:
Don’t know much about this dude, though he’s clearly been knocking around for a while, and his new album has everyone from Tame Impala to Raekwon to Arial Pink on it, so I guess he’s the man.
Anyway, this is just a lovely slice of summer.
SUGGESTION: Let’s see if we can find enough summer tunes to make a playlist, huh?
