Weekly Playlist 82

Words by Richard Gifford - Published on August 31, 2012

Weekly Playlist 82 features Yeasayer, The Owls, The Good China, ∆ (alt-J), The Orwells, Howler & Ball Park Music.

The Good China – We Knew That We Had To Leave

Their new single “We Knew That We Had To Leave” from their forthcoming second EP. MZ

Howler – Wailing (Making Out)

Shows off lead singer Jordan Gatesmith’s range amazingly. Ridiculously voice for a young lad, and at 1:39 he screams and it might as well be Casablancas himself, raw and powerful. Great end to a cracking tune. RG

Yeasayer – Blue Paper

My favourite from their third studio album. Love the direction these guys have gone in, they always challenge their listeners and it’s got such a groovy, catchy chorus. RG

∆ (alt-J) – Breezeblocks

Took me ages to get into this one. It’s such a different sound but after a few listens you can’t stop. Check out the rest of the record as well! RG

The Owls – Better Off Deaf

Driving bass line, grungy guitar riff and solid drums, The Owls have truly delivered on their promise of bringing a unique alternative style that proves both dark and melodic. MZ

The Orwells – Mallrats (La La La)

Was put onto these guys by a Father John Misty tweet, and I’ve been addicted ever since. Just a bunch of 17 year olds out of Chicago, who’ve obviously listened to a lot of Sex Pistols, Pixies and Joy Division. RG

Ball Park Music – Surrender

The first single from their upcoming sophomore album. Awesome harmonies as always, great buildup. Can’t stop playing this tune. RG

A passionate music enthusiast who unashamedly knows every word to "Wham Rap". Loves guitar, travel and the idea of graduating uni.
