Christmas is fast approaching for all of us. I’m sure you will all be busy with Christmas shopping and putting up trees and all sorts this weekend. If you have time have a listen to this week’s playlist!
Lisa O’Neill is a fellow Cavan woman who I’m really a huge fan of. I’ve started off with her because she is someone you all should hear and ‘learn’ to love. It’s someone who hasn’t forgotten her roots and who instead embraces it. I’m a huge fan of Jim James and his track ‘State of the Art’ is a huge grower. Featured also are Empress Of, Andrew Belle and Josef Salvat. Sway Clarke II brings us ‘Don’t Need Much’ a dreamy/R&B track that has some pretty straight lyrics and a direct message. He doesn’t need much bar cigarettes and alcohol. I’ve also included Grizzly Bear’s track ‘Listen and Wait’ which really is a delicious track featuring lovely musical layers and Rossen’s great sounding voice. I don’t really need to introduce The National, they really deliver great clear-cut songs and ‘Lean’ is no different. It features on The Hunger Games soundtrack.
The man behind Vancouver Sleep Clinic is 17 years of age and to be honest I’m really in awe of his ambient music. It is the essence of pure and utter relaxation for me, ‘Collapse’ is a tune I love swaying and dancing lazily to. And if you aren’t relaxed enough finishing up this weekend playlist is Abbey Bowden and her haunting track ‘Still’.
