Glass Animals : ‘Pools’ (Roosevelt remix)

I need to kickstart a campaign to have more artists like Roosevelt and Gilligan Moss remix the entire Glass Animals album. It’s one of those albums that is jam packed with tracks aching to be reworked with a nu disco twist. If this doesn’t put you in a great mood before the start of the weekend, I don’t know what will.

Pachanga Boys : ‘Time’

THIS WEEK’S GUEST POSTS by Nowshad Rizwanullah:

Although I help run MissMalini.com, one of India’s most popular lifestyle & entertainment blogs, I find myself horribly out of touch with good music these days. Running a startup leaves little time for anything else, and I’m sticking with that excuse. Here are a couple of tracks that popped to mind when our office-mate Vikram (Nika) asked me to contribute this week. 


 

There comes a time at every after-party when the collective energy starts to taper off, but people aren’t quite ready to call it quits either. I find this the most difficult time to play music – the transition between beginning and end. This track gets the job done perfectly, and I could listen to it on loop for hours. This is not the original video, but I like the scenes at the end, when the sun starts to rise over the desert at burning man.

State Radio : Right Me Up

Some songs take time to ease into.  Others just grab you right away. I heard a short clip of this track during a class at business school (don’t judge) and was immediately hooked. An easy, happy, any-time-of-day kinda track.

Glass Animals : ‘Toes’

I was on my way to the airport today at around 6:30 am, and I spent the entire drive listening to the Glass Animals album in its entirety. It’s good. It’s really good. My favourite song so far? Easily ‘Toes’. It’s kind of sinister. It’s kind of Blues-ish. It’s kind of Alt-J’ish. It’s kind of awesome. And how can you not love these lyrics in the chorus:

“I’m a man, I’m a twisted fool
My hands are twisted, too
Five fingers, two black wounds
I’m a man, don’t speak me a lie
Got toes and I can’t smile
I’m crooked but alright”

LULS : ‘Never Let It Go’

If Ozzy Osbourne was the frontman of an Indie Rock band, it would probably sound a lot like LULS.

These guys released 2 EPs with a total of 4 tracks over the span of 2 years, all of which are superb. Unfortunately they disbanded soon after. I would have loved to hear an album’s worth of music from them, but these tracks will have to do for now.
