Words by Marco Zande - Published on April 13, 2013
Weekly Playlist 93 features new music from Major Lazer, Young Wonder, The Knife, Theme Park, Big Scary, CHVRCHES, Josh Kumra, James Blake, and Atlas Genius.
Major Lazer – Jessica (ft. Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend)
A fresh new LP by Major Lazer (aka Diplo) with this track featuring Vampire Weekend lead man. A floating track that’s probably best enjoyed smoking a doobie, it has elements of Thom Yorke there. Nice.
Young Wonder – Time (Feat Sacred Animals)
Was positioned at number one on Hype Machine for 3 days and deservedly. An eastern inspired production, with lovely vocals! I’m digging it.
The Knife – A Tooth for an Eye
The Swedish electronic duo dropped their new LP after three years and this is their latest single.
Theme Park – Ghosts
A great vibe from this track, being the fourth single of their new album with their previous single being produced by Ed from Friendly Fires. The UK trio feature heavy on the festival circuit this summer and with tunes like this, the masses will flock!
Big Scary – Lucky Now
This Melbourne duo deserve all the praise they get and this new track is another example of why.
CHVRCHES – Now Is Not The Time
Dominating the world country by country, CHVRCHES are set to play down under in the next few months. Having only released a hand full of tracks and an EP, they give us this track which features the customary insatiable chorus driven electro pop beat. Get used to their name, as they’ve got all elements covered. A hot lead singer, that belts out pop lyrics with meaning.
Josh Kumra – Waiting For You
Crisp vocals, along with his sensational acoustic guitar ability, this young British lad has a massive future ahead of him. Plays live as a three piece, this track is one of his finest.
James Blake – Life Round Here
This London lad dropped his new LP at the start of the month and this is a cracking tune off it. An ascending and descending piano riff with a nice little drum machine beat, layered with his 90’s esque vocals. It’s on repeat.
Atlas Genius – If So
Yes they’re from Adelaide, and these lads have made massive waves in the US. This anthem of a track straight from the heart, feels as if they’re saying that everyone in our world is living a pretty numb and depressed life.
