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: “You’re Always Good” by OOFJ

The South African / Danish electronic duo from Los Angeles OOFJ provide the soundtrack to a lost David Lynch film with “You’re Always Good.”

“Drama” by the 79rs Gang

The music of Mardi Gras Indians is kept alive by the New Orleans’ artists 79rs Gang on “Drama.” The track features a combination of call-and-response chant and polyrhythms  Read more at KEXP Song of the Day.

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.

Song of the Week: “The Scene Between” by The Go! Team

The song I cannot stop listening to this week is “The Scene Between” by the Englihs band The Go! Team featuring a gospel choir, distorted guitars, and oddball samples.  You can watch the trippy video below.

Song of the Week: “Loud Places” by Jamie xx (feat. Romy Madley Croft)

The song is called “Loud Places” but the track by Jamie xx (nom de plume of English producer/remix artist Jamie Smith) is not loud at all.  The bass is heavy, but the vocals by The xx bandmate Romy Madley Croft are soothing, uplifting, almost gospel. I just want to dive in and live in the world the music creates.
