Music Playlist week #4
Welcome to Damson's weekly feature.
Each week we will share 10 great tracks with you.
The Presets - Beethoven
Since launching their debut album "Beams" in 2005, The Presets feel like they've been around forever. There are so many catchy tracks to choose from but it is this from their fourth, and most recent offering that really tickles our fancy. And it will yours too.
Panic! At The Disco - High Hopes
P!ATD have been on an interesting journey. From being "emo" darlings when they first burst on to the scene to vanishing. Now having a total line up change (Apart from Vocalist and Brendon Urie) to then flying back into the mainstream with this offering last year. This is probably the high point of their career so far.
Queens of the Stone Age - Go With The Flow
What isn't there to love about QOTSA? Nothing, that's what. An incredible band with incredible songs of which this is one of many. FUN FACT: The drummer on this track is none other than Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl. There's nothing he can't do really is there?
Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever - Sick Bug
Australian Indie Rockers Rolling Blackouts C.F, are well worth your time. And if you can convince others to jump on the bandwagon, all the better. This is the highlight of their currently limited back catalogue. Make them your new favourite band before they get too popular and you have to pretend you don't like them anymore.
VANT - DO YOU KNOW ME?
VANT seemed to come and go pretty quickly, at least in this rock version anyway. Rumour has it they are returning this year with Hip-Hop music...which should be interesting. Oh well, enjoy this banger from their 2017 debut album.
Nine Inch Nails - Only
When Trent Reznor isn't busy composing film scores and being the COO of mega-companies, Nine Inch Nails release some MASSIVE tracks. This being the one that has been doing the rounds at Damson HQ recently from their 2005 album "With Teeth"
Animal Collective - Summertime Clothes
Good luck trying to pigeonhole Animal Collective. Wikipedia calls them "experimental pop" so I guess we'll go with that. Their back catalogue is HUGE, but this is the highlight for us from their epic 2009 release "Merriweather Post Pavilion". Give them a go. It'll be the best decision you make all day.
The Time - Jungle Love
"The Time", "Morris Day & The Time", "Prince's Band"...whatever you want to call them they're a seriously funky band that really get you going. Yes, this we first heard this in "Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back" but don't judge us on that please.
John Grant - Touch and Go
John Grant is probably one of the most fascinating musicians around at the moment. Not just his music, but his whole back story too. He just demands your attention time and time again. Enjoy this little number from his latest album release "Love Is Magic".
The Chemical Brothers - Eve of Destruction
What is there to be said about The Chemical Brothers that hasn't been said before? Not much. Just when you think they might be past their peak they go and release something like this. Phenomenal. Long may they reign.
