Music Playlist week #11
Welcome to Damson's weekly feature.
Each week will share 10 great tracks with you.
Deftones - Back To School
This track doesn't seem to be too popular amongst hardcore Deftones fans, but we don't understand why. Probably the most commercial sounding track they have ever produced and that's not a bad thing. This bonus song from the fantastic "White Pony" album has become a Nu-Metal classic over the years.
Broken Bells - The High Road
When James Mercer and Danger Mouse announced they would be creating music together, you just knew it would be outstanding and it is. Now that they have a couple of albums in their back pocket, in our opinion, this remains the highlight.
The Mars Volta - Televators
Formed in 2001 after the break up of At the Drive-In, The Mars Volta have produced some outstanding music. We could have chosen anything from the outstanding concept album "Frances the Mute" but went for Televators. If you've never heard these guys, you won't be disappointed.
The S.L.P - ((Trance))
Sergio Lorenzo Pizzorno, or "The guitarist from Kasabian", has branched out on his own under his "The S.L.P." pseudonym. He's created one hell of an album. There are plenty of highlights, but this is the pick of the bunch for us. Hopefully, it's not his only solo album.
Eric Prydz - Opus
There's much more to Eric Prydz than "Call on Me". When a lot of EDM acts go pop, they stay pop, but Priydz has managed to balance his overground notoriety and underground credibility. Give this AMAZING track a listen and then treat yourself to the rest of his back catalogue.
Tash Sultana - Jungle
If you want someone who creates all of their music themselves in the studio and live on stage, look no further than Tash Sultana. You can stick your Ed Sheeran where the sun doesn't shine, he's not a patch on Tash. And this song is incredible too.
The Slow Readers Club - On the TV
Yes, another new band coming out of Manchester. Big, big things are coming from these guys. Mark our words. If you're a fan of the likes of The Maccabees, Interpol or New Order, you'll love these guys. Give them a blast.
George Fitzgerald - Full Circle
Sumptuous house grooves and great vocals are at the forefront of George's debut single from his debut album. At the time it felt like an introduction to an artist with so much more to offer, and since 2015, it turns out we were absolutely right.
Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes - Kitty Sucker
We're going to go out on a limb now and say that Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes are the next huge British rock band. After successfully navigating this year's festivals, and then selling out their biggest tour to date, their profile is in the stratosphere. This is a huge fan favourite, live and on record.
Cat Power - The Greatest
You don't listen to Cat Power for cheery music, but it doesn't mean that her music isn't inspiring. This title track from her 2006 album combines a string selection with some good old fashioned Memphis soul to stunning effect.
