The Helio Sequence : ‘The Captive Mind’

This is one of those songs for which I would highly recommend reading the lyrics along with the music. I guarantee that you will find yourself automatically singing along automatically each time. The words go perfectly with the music. I’d also highly recommend getting your hands on the entire album Keep Your Heads Away. 

2:40 onwards sounds so much like ‘Transdermal Celebration’ by Ween. If you haven’t heard that track, you need to do a search for it below in the search bar, because I posted it back in May of last year.

Royksopp & Robyn : ‘Monument’

THIS WEEK’S 2 GUEST POSTS by Marvin D’Souza AKA Marv:

I’m the Head Stylist at MissMalini and co-creative director at BandraRoad. When I’m not at my work desk, I hunt down music. My taste in music is pretty diverse and is fueled by my moods. Over the years, Placebo, HIM, Nirvana, Bjork, Imogen Heap, Sarah Mclachlan, Moby and Fionna Apple have been staples on my pod. And LAMB, The XX, The National, Florence and The Machine, Grimes and a few more found their way into my ‘favourites’ playlist .”


I spotted this track on YouTube and instantly clicked on it. I love Royskopp and Robyn happens to be my guilty pleasure. Though this track is the first time these two have collaborated, I like its easy dreamspace feel. And the pensive, moody lyrics add that extra element. Plus, Robyn’s wardrobe in the video is awesome. #JustSaying

Lamb : ‘We Fall in Love’ (Live at Casa Bertallot)

I love the mood in the song and it builds and drops. Besides, Lou Rhodes, the vocalist, is one of my favourite voices. It’s a great track to drive to and drink to (obviously not together). Lamb fans, will notice a new range to the band’s sound and it’s a cool new direction. The track features in the band’s latest album, ‘ Backspace Unwind’ and the one I really dig is the live version.

Big Black Delta : ‘Money Rain Down’

I never realized until today that the lead singer for this band is also the frontman for Mellowdrone. If you’ve never heard them,do not worry – I will definitely put up some of their tracks soon!

Big Black Delta is definitely a lot of different from Mellowdrone though. They’re heavy on the electronica and synth. Also I cannot help but think that this is what Peter Gabriel would sound like if he was born in the 80s and was making contemporary music today.

And if the music isn’t enough for you, their videos are always a visual treat!
