Music Monday: September Week 5

This week’s Music Monday features the likes of Jay Z, R Kelly, Gnarwolves, Nicolas Jaar and BANKS.

01. Lou Johnson – There’s Always Something There To Remind Me

“This week I finally caught up on Mad Men, finishing season 6. This tune came on at the end of one of the episodes and as if the song wasn’t catchy enough as it is, this particular version by Lou Johnson is definitely the best with the harmonies and rhythms. It’s from an era where a song would get put out by several different acts – very different times to now.” – Alex

02. BANKS – This is What it Feels Like

“I wrote about this during the week and it’s been on loop. Hopefully I won’t overplay it … definitely in danger of that.” – Alex

03. GRAZE – On Board

“I discovered the label New Kanada this week and GRAZE is a collaborative project by label owner Adam Marshall and fellow Canadian XI. Their latest full EP is really really good and this tune is the one that tempted me in. The label has wicked art direction as well.” – Alex

04. Gnarwolves – Discography

“I can’t stop listening to Gnarwolves this week. I saw them play the OBL sometime last year and really enjoyed them but it was only this week that I really started to listen to everything they have done. Coffee is my favourite song by the Brighton trio. I hear they had a massive 8 page feature in the latest issue of FRONT, so expect to hear a lot more of these guys if you are into your UK Punk.” – Thom

05. Carcass – Cadaver Pouch Conveyor System

“Finally got to play through Carcass’ new Surgical Steel this week, the band’s first release since 1996, and it’s excellent – it sounds as if it could have been kept in a time capsule for 17 years. If you don’t like death metal you probably won’t like this. If you do, this is about as good as it gets.” – Adam

06. Pusha T – King Push

“The video came out and has me even more hyped about the album dropping.” – Grizzle

07. Jay Z and R Kelly – Best Of Both Worlds

“One of the best intros to a tune ever. Plus I love Jay Z.” – Grizzle

08. Kanye West – Blood On The Leaves

“Blood on the leaves by kanye west. After seeing it on Jools Holland I’ve been listening to it all week. Was and still is my favourite track on the new album.” – Grizzle

09. Fleetwood Mac – Need Your Love So Bad

“Covering Little Willie John’s much covered classic, the best (in my opinion) formation of Fleetwood Mac, with Peter green. I would probably consider this the best cover of the song, it’s too good.” – Luke

10. Wonder – What

“It’s not like I ever forgot how good this instrumental was but I heard Pinch play it out at the weekend and I went mad for it. Also used in Dizzee Rascal’s Respect Me.”Luke

11. Nicolas Jaar -Time For Us

“Reliving this little classic from a few years back, makes me remember how much of a talent Jaar is.” – Luke
