What’s up everybody? HOW ARE WE DOING? Welcome to this week’s Good Sounds Playlist! I just wanted to say thank you for the support shown for Sounds Good’s return last week. It meant a lot and definitely made it easy to get back into the routine. You lot are the best. Anyway, this week’s Good Sounds Playlist is named paradiselost, after the new single from noid. Cheers guys!
There’s a nice mix between gritty and laid back, summery tunes this week. This could be surmised perfectly by Metronomy’s new single “Lately”, which blends the two contrasts in a way that adds an underlining terror to an otherwise groovy sound. Kinda like when you’re cutting shapes at the club and realise you’re too sober and hear the playlist loop. Awful.
The Vegan Leather’s “French Exit” has quickly become a favourite, so expect a full review of that this week. Ugly Sun and The Black Fever continue the overarching tension before we head into a different direction, courtesy of Johnny Stimson. The laid back vibes of “Vacation” is a welcome diversion, and sets the tone for the likes of Hunger Moon, LISA to deliver their slice of chilled summer tones too. Minihorse also kick back for a moment, but gets over encumbered with a flood of distorted noise in “Summer Itch”. Finally, The Modern Strangers and Llovers inject some pure sunshine into the middle of the playlist. Cheers lads.
Hope you enjoy this week’s Good Sounds Playlist and that it feels your heart with happiness as it did mine. We’re creeping ever closer to the 100 Followers mark so please do us a favour and follow, share and rave about the playlist wherever you can. Also, check out the Sounds Good Archives too. It’s a new playlist that’ll feature a track from every artist featured on the blog in review/interview form. Pretty cool idea that probably should’ve been around two years ago, but ah well. Love ya!
