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!

The Walkmen : ‘The Rat’

If you have never heard this song before, it really is time that you did. ‘The Rat’ is easily one of my all time favourite tracks, with some of the most ferocious drumming, guitars and vocals I have ever heard. This is one of the many reasons I listen to music every single day…because for 4 and half minutes nothing else matters.

Gomez : ‘Notice’

Gomez is a band I’ve been listening to ever since I picked up their debut album back in 1998, and their music has very much been a part of my growing up as a teenager. I still find myself going back to their music as an adult.

It’s a very small detail, but I always love the part in this song when the music suddenly breaks (@ 01:57). It’s unexpected and effective.

The New Pornographers : ‘The New Face of Zero and One’

The way this song keeps switching the rhythm and melody throughout is just plain fantastic. I have to say that the New Pornographers are easily one of the most original songwriters of the Indie genre.  If you don’t find your feet tapping throughout this entire track, then you need to make an appointment with a podiatrist immediately.
