Music Monday: February Week 1

As we start the first week of February, here’s another dose of musical offerings from the The Daily Street HQ. This week features Chronik, New Order, Brassica, Toe, Beirut and Youth of Today.

01. Youth Of Today – Thinking Straight

“I’ve been listening to a lot of old hardcore this week. Youth Of Today’s Break Down the Walls is about as essential as it gets.” – Chris

02. Chronik – Deepest Darkest

“This tune and mc is the deepest darkest. The croc in the vid only works alongside the machete.” – Grizzle

03. New Order – Leave Me Alone

“Having been a fan of Joy Division for quite a while it’s a bit strange it’s taken me years to listen passed Blue Monday in the new Order back catalogue. Been really enjoying their second album Power Corruption & Lies and this track i’ve picked is one of my highlights. “– Luke

04. War – Why Can’t We Be Friends

“There isn’t much reason for me picking this tune apart from the fact it’s really fun and is high up on my most recently played. Oldie but goody”– Luke

05. DJ Oddz – Champion

“Thought I’d pick a tune I played out at the weekend. This one certainly got a wheel up. “ – Luke

06. Brassica – Milieux Metrix

“I’m a big Brassica fan and this is one of my top tracks from his Temple Fortune EP on Civil Music.” – Alex

07. Beirut – Guyamas Sonora

“I spent my Sunday having brunch in a local cafe and they were playing Beirut on the speakers. It rekindled my dormant passion for this guy’s music – it’s incredible. This is one of my favourite tracks and these live renditions are a nice little touch as well.” – Alex

08. Toe – Kodokunohatsumei

“I found myself in the Percival store in Soho lately, talking about a mutual love of Post Rock with the girl behind the counter. She introduced me to this Japanese band who I’d never heard of and I’m very thankful to her for doing so.” – Alex
