Sam Smith – Latch
I loved the original version when it came out eons ago – it sounded like a modern day love story both lyrically and rhythmically. Sam took it to another level old going on old school acoustic. Brilliant.
Mr Probz – Waves (Robin Schulz Remix Radio Edit)
In LOVE with this track. Super chilled out sail/surf track. Steady Summer sun, can’t you come to Britain already please? We’ve had way too much rain for Spring.
Parov Stelar – The Duke
Managed to find Parov Stelar’s new EP ‘Clap Your Hands’ on Spotify which was stuck on loop for a good few days before we went on hols. It’s an archetypal Parov album with The Sun headlining as my favourite track. Nothing like good electro-swing to pump you up for a good Parisian café feel.
Arsenal – One Day At A Time
There are songs that you just have to research when you hear them the first time. That’s when I realised that Arsenal has been around a while, looming in compilations and soundtracks of things I’ve watched (ie a documentary about important books of the 20th century feat Murakami’s Norwegian Wood, Achebe’s Things Fall Apart, Lem’s Solaris, etc, Café del Mar CDs, Six Feet Under).
Mapei – Don’t Wait
This was meant to be part of last month’s playlist but I guess I kinda forgot #badblogger. Anyway. I like the laziness of this track. I like how Mapei tries to inject a bit of character to the lyrics (which aren’t particularly spectacular), and I like the beat. Decent enough.
The Neighbourhood – Sweater Weather
