Music Monday: June Week 3


It’s time for another edition of Music Monday, the weekly round up of what we’re listening to at TDS HQ. This week features the likes of Sigur Rós, Ramadanman and Killer Mike.

Killer Mike – Untitled

“Killer Mike is a serious rapper and this tune from the R.A.P Music album proves why, the flow is incredible.” – Grizzle

(hed) pe – Ground

“Massive fan of (hed) pe, Jared the lead vocalist is one of my favourite mc’s. Shame that their newer stuff is a bit sh*t but the early stuff still is incredible!” – Grizzle

Noah Gundersen – Family

“Really great tune that I heard on the TV show Sons Of Anarchy. I checked out the track then the album and was hooked. Really worth checking out if this is your kind of thing.” – Grizzle

Youthmovies – If You’d Seen A Battlefield

“Youthmovies are one of Oxford’s best musical exports and I’ve been giving them a lot of listening time again this week. Good Nature was and still is a great album and this is probably my favourite song from the LP.” – Alex

Ramadanman – Bestimix 23

“I stumbled upon this mix by Ramadanman from 2010 while listening through some of his old bits on my iTunes recently and I’d forgotten how good this mis was. Well worth a listen if you haven’t heard it before or even if you have. This sums up one of my favourite sounds for British dance music.” – Alex

Sigur Rós – ( )

“The new Sigur Ros album Kveikur is out very soon and you can stream it in full on Amazon. Amazingly, it seems as if the band are interesting again and not just creating music for adverts/BBC indents. It was so back to form, it reminded me of listening to ( ) way too much as a teenager. So I am listening to it way too much now.” – Thom

Basement – Colourmeinkindness

“I loved Basement and was pretty gutted when they split up but I never quite got this album in time for their final show at The Underworld. Now, months later I think it might be my favourite release by the band. Definitely a grower but well worth the wait.” – Thom

Darondo – Didn’t I

“Darondo has made some of the slickest, under-appreciated soul and funk music. If you haven’t heard of him, look into his work. Sadly Darondo passed away last week.” – Luke

Andras Fox ft. Oscar S. Thorn – Running Late

“This is a relatively new track on the Embassy Cafe LP. Straight up soul put down on a laid back, uplifting house jam. The vocals are also pretty damn sweet.” – Luke
