Music Monday: December Week 3

We’re getting ever closer to Christmas but will this effect our choices in this week’s Music Monday? No. This week we have been listening to the likes of Clams Casino, A$AP Mob, Smokey Robinson and Zomby.

01. Goat – Goatman

“I’ve recently discovered Goat. This one comes off the album World Music, which definitely seems appropriate considering the musical style they play. It’s fresh, original, interesting and I dig it. “ – Chris

02. Clams Casino – Gorilla

“Clam Casino’s Rain Forest EP has been another go to record this week. Gorilla is one of those tracks that sounds so good, no matter how many times you hear it.” – Chris

03. Owen – Bag Of Bones

“Last weekend, I went and saw Owen play at the Old Blue Last. What promised to be a sold out show was surprisingly relaxed. The crowd were so respectful to one of the most important people in the 90s Emo sene, that no one really sang much at all. Now I can’t get this song out of my head.” – Thom

04. A$AP Mob ft. Method Man – Trillmatic

“For me this tune is what Hip hop should sound like. It’s so refreshing to here this batch of rappers team up with method man and come out with something like this. It is too good.” – Luke

05. Floetry – SupaStar ft. Common

“Digging up this little gem from a few years back. A transatlantic link up between British duo Floetry and Chicago rapper Common. The finished product is more than pleasant.” – Luke

06. Smokey Robinson and The Miracles – Ooh Baby Baby

“Probably one of my favourite songwriters of all time is Smokey and this is one of my all time favourite Smokey songs.” – Luke

07. George Benson – Give Me The Night

“I have a real love for this tune. The breakdown at 3:07 is one of the best as well.” – Alex

08. Takuya Matsumoto – Side By Side

“Got to give full credit to the guy in Phonica who put me on to this record. One of my greatest purchases of late. Can’t get enough of this release. Unfortunately this is just a clip.” – Alex

09. Zomby – Natalia’s Song

“I’d forgotten just how much I love this tune, regardless of all the online beef that surrounded it.” – Alex
