June has been such a lovely month for new music, hasn’t it? With the festival season almost upon us, my Spotify playlist is bursting at the seams… and pleasingly so.
No doubt you’ve heard of London Grammar? In just a week, I’ve caught of a glimpse of them on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch playlist and also had the pleasure of catching them on the radio. Driving past country fields with a gorgeous sunset in the rear window, this was my soundtrack. I’m absolutely addicted to this song. It’s hypnotic and haunting! Although, I can’t help but compare them to Canada’s Austra, just me?
Moving on! Jagwar Ma! I’m rather
sad embarrassed to say, I missed their gig at the Deaf Institute in Manchester last week! (Shame on me) They seem to be on everyone’s radar at the moment, with due cause.
Ah Tame Impala! I love their hedonistic, 70s vibe. Their latest offering does not disappoint. Not as iconic as ‘Elephant’, however just as catchy.
Camera Obscura are back! Hurrah! No longer will I wait for the adverts on Come Dine With Me just to hear a snippet of their silky tones (and continue to annoy everyone in the room with my awful singing.) Look up ‘French Navy’ if this confuses you. ‘Do It Again’ does not disappoint, it’s simply lovely. Good moods all around.
I had absolutely no choice about adding ‘Love Sick’ by Peace. I apologise now. Even though they are appalling live, this song is ridiculously catchy and twee. A definite festival song. I challenge you not to get it stuck in your head!
Now, Temples. A band that have been on the tip of any music lover’s tongue for the past few months. These were recommended to me way back in March, however I’m not one for following hyped bands, *cough* Palma Violets anyone? I may have missed a trick here though.
On a completely different vibe, I’m going to leave you with Drenge. If you’re looking to relieve a little pent up rage, try these. I caught this on the radio, late one angst filled night. If you like Queens of the Stone Age, I’m guessing you’ll like Drenge. Huge giddy bumps that they will be playing Kendal Calling! Before you click! Turn it up…loud!
Want more? The latest offerings from Phoenix, The XX, Vampire Weekend and Local Natives don’t fail to please.
What are you listening to this month?
