Finally it’s that time of the week again – friyay! Lulu’s back with another playlist, a nice mixture of genres, some for dancing, some for chilling and some for getting drunk to. Let us know what you think and tweet the list @AfterNyne.
Wild Ones – Dim The Lights
“Dim The Lights” is the lead single from Wild Ones’ upcoming Heatwave EP, painting a picture of night drives beneath city lights against a backdrop of neon and smoke.
Is Tropical – Say
Speaking of the second track ‘Say’, the band say “the lyrics were written on a drive from London to Murcia, long drives can be lonely. The radio stations kept getting lost every couple of songs so the only CD in the car got played a lot, ‘Beautiful Maladies’ a selection of Tom Waits from the Island years. It’s an album that documents Tom’s crazy era, full of insane characters of travelling freak shows members, prostitutes, senile uncles, pirates and sailors on shore leave. ‘Say’ is a love story of two hopeless misfits that don’t fit with anyone else and don’t want to. It’s a song for the time they fall apart and get lost. Like a pair of socks.”
B Dolan – We Run The Block Remix
US Independent Hip-Hop artist and activist B. Dolan drops his own remix to UK MC Bonkaz’s ‘We Run the Block’. Well known for his 2011 ‘Film the Police’ track, B. Dolan re-pens ‘We Run the Block’ in light of the recent murder of Freddie Gray. B Dolan’s new album – Kill the Wolf drops on July 10th on Scroobius Pip’s Speech Development Records (UK & Europe) and Strange Famous Records (rest of the world).
Mac DeMarco – Another One
Another One, Mac DeMarco’s mini-LP of love songs and the follow up to last year’s Salad Days, is due out 7th August on Captured Tracks. Following the release of first single, ‘The Way You’d Love Her,’ Mac now presents the video for the mini-LP’s title track, ‘Another One’ made by and starring the man himself. Here, Mac wears his heart on his sleeve, openly contemplating his lover’s potential love for someone else, all the while paying tribute to one of his musical heroes.
