Coldplay – Don’t Panic

30 05 2013

A subdued classic from back in the day when Coldplay had musical integrity. This song makes me warm inside – listening to the chorus is like taking a sip of creamy hot chocolate in the snow. Or downing half a bottle of Jack Daniels in an alleyway in Shoreditch.


The Shins – New Slang

6 03 2013

I find The Shins rather hit and miss, but when they hit it feels like a Mike Tyson right hook to the crotch (in a good way). New Slang has a wonderfully ethereal quality and gained popularity from becoming the soundtrack of Garden State – a film written, directed and starred in by Zach Braff (JD from Scrubs).  Here’s the link (remember to click on putlocker)

Here’s some other songs by The Shins I recommend: Pink Bullets, Caring is Creepy, The Past and Pending, Sleeping Lessons.

Kurt Vile – Baby’s Arms

28 02 2013

A newly found, Smog inspired gem from Kurt Vile’s fourth studio album ‘Smoke Ring for my Halo’. If you’re interested, check out Mr Vile’s band ‘The War on Drugs’ from his hometown Philadelphia, USA. His name may be Vile but his music is brilliant…

Sorry about the crazy looking woman at the left of the link, she scares the shit out of me too.
