Music Monday: July Week 3

The Daily Street Music Monday July week 3

After another hot and sticky week in the UK it’s time to see what we’ve been listening to at The Daily Street HQ. This week features the likes of For Real, Jehst and The Black Keys.

Black Keys – Brooklyn Bound

“I’ve been listening to The Black Keys’ ‘The Big Come Up’ album all week. Its gritty but soulful sound is perfect for summer road trips and taking it easy around the house and back garden.” – Chris

London Grammar – Wasting My Young Years

“This has been on repeat for a few weeks now. Can’t wait to hear more.” – Grizzle

The Last Skeptik ft. Jehst – Lullaby

“Jehst, the greatest rapper alive in the UK. Fact.” – Grizzle

For Real – You Don’t Know Nothing

“My girlfriend actually drew for this one the other day and now I can’t get it out of my head! Early 90s vocal harmony. This tune resonates with me as the intro to Slimzee, Wiley and Dizzee’s famous sidewinder set.” – Luke

Piff Gang – Floating

“I’ve been bumping the PG13 mixtape a fair bit recently. Good vibes that work well in the good weather. Piff Gang rep the UK overly well.” – Luke

Bandulu 003 – Gemmy, Breen, Boofy & Oatz

“Each Bandulu release is a must for any grime head. It really seems Bristol is reigniting the world of grime dubplate culture.” – Luke

Kyte – Boundaries

“This weekend I visited the Indie Labels Market in Shoreditch and rekindled my ongoing love affair with Erased Tapes Records. After browsing their back catalogue and spending way too much money on vinyl copies of albums I’ve loved and had in my iTunes for years, I remembered that they put out one of my favourite albums from years ago – Kyte, by Kyte. The band didn’t last long unfortunately, but this album is still incredible and especially this tune.” – Alex

Guy Andrews – Hints

“I’m still amazed this is a free download (which you can grab here). Guy consistantly kills it, but this new stuff has blown me away.” – Alex
