— O.M.

Playlist: April 2016

Every month brings fresh and new additions to the ever-evolving world of music. Here are my personal favourites of the past month, as well as some classic throwbacks. Enjoy!

 


 

Alex Newell & DJ Cassidy (feat. Nile Rodgers) – “Kill The Lights”
This super-positive Studio54-style disco hit was released hand in hand with the last two episodes of “Vinyl” on HBO. A truly fantastic throwback to the 70s funk phenomenon of NYC underground with Alex Newell absolutely killing them vocals. It makes you love funk again.

 

Foxing – “Night Channels”
The information you can find about a band called “Foxing” states they evolved from a post-rock band called Hunter Gatherer in 2011, released their debut album in 2013, and are now following with their newest LP “Dealer”. “Night Channels” is accompanied by a 11-minute official video, beautifully directed by John Komar together with the bands bassist Josh Coll. It’s an emotion-tearing post-rock ballad, that visually follows the story of a certain love triangle. See for yourself:

 

The 1975 – “Change of Heart”
The 1975 are succesfully continuing the promotion of their new LP “I Like It When You Sleep…..”.
Their newest single is “A Change Of Heart”, with a heart-warming (and heart-breaking) video…

 

Brian Fallon – “Painkillers”
Brian Fallon, of Gaslight Anthem, has parted ways with his alma mater, and is now woking on first ever . After singles “A Wonderful Life” and “Nobody Wins”, he has now released “Painkillers” – the title track of the album, and a wonderful americana-fueled, springsteen-felt, nostalgic tune.
There may not be such a difference between Fallon’s solo works and the Gaslight Anthem discography, but the imminent folk emotion is still very present.

 

Mumford & Sons – There Will Be Time
This is probably one of the biggest surprises of the past month – Mumford&Sons teamed up with Senegalese singer Baaba Maal (and others), to record the EP “Johannesburg” within just two days, during the bands stay in South Africa, last year. So far, we got to hear the first single “There Will Be Time” – a happy, warm and positive UK/Senegal collaboration.
