Weekly Playlist 89
Words by Richard Gifford - Published on February 13, 2013
Weekly Playlist 89 features Local Natives, The Griswolds, Dan Croll, Foals, Mitzi, Jagwar Ma and Half Moon Run.
Local Natives – Columbia
EPIC! Love this tune and the entire record. The more atmospheric vibe they’ve got going on Hummingbird is amazing. Dessner has had quite the influence.
The Griswolds – The Courtship of Summer Preasley
Getting a lot of heat on the j’s at the moment and deservedly so. You may have heard this tune in the Wet n Wild advert – a summer classic.
Dan Croll – From Nowhere
Have a dance to this if you want. Your own decisions…
Mitzi – Truly Alive
These guys have just supported Foals for their recent Australian tour. LCD Soundsystem and Bloc Party anyone?
Foals – Providence
Current fav from Holy Fire. Can’t get over the drum solo at the end, then the hectic breakdown. Heaviest stuff they’ve done I reckon.
Jagwar Ma – Come Save Me
These guys have been tipped by NME as one of the bands to watch for 2013. Coined as the electro Tame Impala…
Half Moon Run – Call Me In The Afternoon
Gareth interviewed these guys a couple of weeks back. Really cool Canadian alt-rock group. Folky Radiohead comparisons. Don’t listen if you hate fucking amazing harmonies.
