Weekly Playlist 101
Words by Aksel Nichols - Published on August 19, 2015
Welcome to your Weekly Playlist number one hundred and one. This week we’ve got some new treats from Editors, Deerhunter and Four Tet.
Editors – Life is a Fear
After dropping off the radar for a while, Editors are back with their new single off their upcoming fifth album, ‘In Dream’, coming our way in October. It’s a bit of a change but you can still here their classic sound we’ve all grown up with.
Deerhunter – Snakeskin
2015 is shaping up to be one hell of a year in music, and Deerhunter have just made it better. After a cryptic lead up, we now have access to ‘Snakeskin’, off Fading Frontier, also out October.
Four Tet – BACK2THESTART
New release from the king of IDM. Apparently he casually made this while on a plane last year. All I can do on planes is imagine all of the places I would rather be.
Beach House – Sparks
This one’s a couple of months old, hence the “newish”, but Beach House have just released their new album Depression Cherry and it’s exactly the woozy dream pop journey everyone expected.
King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard – Paper Mâché Dream Balloon
KGATLW are back with yet another album in November, just months after releasing Quarters earlier this year.
Kurt Vile – Wakin’ on a Pretty Day
You can never have too much Kurt Vile.
The Persuasions – Good Times
A bit of an oldie here, but it’s the track which Jamie XX sampled some of the best bits of I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times). It’s hard not to imagine Young Thug coming in for most of the song, but it’s a treat.
Good Morning – You
Beautiful song by Melbourne duo Good Morning. There are a couple of band names that are really damn hard to find, like !!!, and I think I might add this one to the list.
