J. Mascis : ‘Me Again’ on a Sunday

There is the annual Bandra Fair taking place right outside my house, and today is the final day. This means traffic, noise, crowds and more noise.

J. Mascis and his latest solo effort comes to the rescue to help soothe my nerves.  Here’s hoping wherever you are, it does the same for you.

The Flight : ‘Hangman’ on a Saturday

My music-guru brother recently posted this track online, along with a note guarateening any listener instant gratification. Boy, was he right!

I think what is most striking about ‘Hangman’ is that it latches on to you immediately within the first 20 seconds itself.  That’s all it takes, and from the 21st second you already know that this song will be on repeat for weeks to come.

This was the last thing I listened to last night before falling asleep.  This was the first thing I listened to this morning after waking up. It is haunting and infectious. ‘Hangman’ is one of those hidden gems aching to be discovered by everyone.

Seekae : ‘The Stars Below’ on a Friday

This is one my favourite new discoveries. ‘The Stars Below’ is enough to make me want to check out the entire album from this Australian artist.

When you hit the play button, you might feel it’s a little too down-tempo and minimal for a Friday. Don’t be fooled. Be patient. Allow it some time. The song gradually picks up, and before you know it you’ll be in a weekend state of mind.

Wild Beasts : Palace (Foals remix) on a Thursday

Foals not only churn out fantastic indie-rock songs on their own albums, but have been releasing some very interesting remixes of late.

Their reworking of ‘Palace’ makes it sound like Electronic music is something that comes naturally to them. Who knows? We might even hear a lot more elements from the genre in their future releases.

I can’t help but think that this dark remix could have easily been done by the likes of UNKLE or Orbital.  You need to listen to it alone at home, or with headphones on. It’s a trip.

Tuxedo : ‘Do It’

THIS WEEK’S GUEST POSTS by Nicole Ferraz :

“I am a bathroom dancer, closet singer and proud foodarian. I have a weakness for clothes, shoes, animals and Punkflop. Fun fact: I sang “Like a Virgin” to a class of 9th graders when I was 6. You can follow my foodisodes and other antics on Instagram @ferraznicole.”


 

If you need a song to put you in a smooth mood, I definitely recommend this one! It’s an instant mood lifter and everyone needs a little funk with their Wednesday.

This song is synth-pop at its best! I know one thing for sure; you’re unlikely to be disappointed. Oh, and you’re welcome.

Paul Banks : ‘The Base’ on a Tuesday

If songs could be roller-coasters, ‘The Base’ would be one hell of a trip.  The singer from Interpol performs a seamless balancing act between the soft and loud, resulting in one of my favourite Indie songs in recent years.  Paul Banks’ melodies have always been unique and strange.  This track is no different. Listen out for his vocals as he sings, “So steep” from 2:35 onwards. Stunning.
