Song of the Week: “Moaning Lisa Smile” by Wolf Alice

This week’s song is “Moaning Lisa Smile” by the London band Wolf Alice from their debut album My Love Is Cool.  The sound is reminiscent of early 90s indie pop, but the video is straight out of the 80s.  Neither of which is a bad thing.

Song of the Week: “Seven Nation Funk” by DRA’man

This is a bit of a lark for Song of the Week as “Seven Nation Army” by The White Stripes and “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars are not new songs that need any more publicity.  But the mash-up of the two by DRA’man is absolutely glorious as the song mesh together so well.  At the very least this mash-up has the potential as top-notch rally music at sporting events.

Song of the Week: “Irony. Utility. Pretext.” by Algiers

“Irony. Utility. Pretext” by Atlanta’s Algiers blends the power of gospel vocals, post-punk instrumentation, and militantly political lyrics akin to Public Enemy or Rage Against the Machine.  The video filmed at Buzludzha in Bulgaria is fascinating as well.
