After a week away your #SundaySoundtrack has returned for its 17th edition to help you quell those hangover blues. As always we aim to deliver a cracking list of tunes that we’ve been enjoying this week to help lift those hangover blues and make you forget that Monday is just around the corner.
Quasimoto – ‘Catchin’ The Vibe’
Madlib once again proving he is the master when it comes to whipping up beats. The most addictive song of his to listen to, I have not been able to turn this off all week. The smooth boom bap drums accompanied by the outrageously catchy bass, I can all but guarantee this will become lodged into your head for days to come. The video is also brilliant so take a look!
Bakermat – ‘Teach Me’
Sampling gospel singer Shirley Caesar for an uplifting and spiritual journey, this bouncy track has the power of a church choir and a handclap tempo that gives a new spin on the retro vocal house genre that is currently en vogue.
Circa Waves – ‘Fossils’
Fantastic post-punk inspired jangly indie magic. A cathartic chorus and great vocals really make this track. Circa Waves debut album Young Chasers is out on March 30th.
RAPT – ‘Gingy ft. Starving Yet Full’
Here we’ve got a blend of nostalgia and futurism, with the ’90s style vocals from a member of Azari & III over a glitchy electronic backdrop wailing on top of a UK garage drum loop. This is great for fans of the nostalgic Disclosure tunes and the ever eccentric works of Aphex Twin.
Listenbee – ‘Save Me’
An incredibly relaxing first track from newbies Listenbee which has already garnered half a million plays on SoundCloud – and it’s easy to see why. This one will soothe away your hangover with no qualms! Beautifully thought out lyrics, a tasty house backdrop and a chorus that’s about as addictive as crack; this is one not to miss.
Pink Floyd – ‘The Great Gig In The Sky’
There’s not really a lot I can say to do this song justice. All you need to know is that it is Pink Floyd playing what literally does sound like a great gig in the sky. Does it get much better than Pink Floyd on a Sunday? Or any day for that matter!
Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge – ‘Zara Sa Jhoom Loon Main’
This week I watched my first Bollywood movie and this song really stuck in my head. Mostly because it’s a song about looking after your girlfriend when she’s drunk. A subject matter I have never seen tackled before in song yet one that many of us have experienced. It’s funny, catchy and soundtracks scenes of Indians dancing around the Swiss Alps, as you do.
Conway Twitty – ‘It’s Only Make Believe’
Some call this the greatest country and western track of all time, some call it the worst…what is evident is he knows how to woo the ladies. It’s been told that Conway’s vocals make the men and ladies weak at the knees equally…I’ll let you decide.
Drenge – ‘We Can Do What We Want’
After their self titled debut album, released in 2013, the two piece grunge act announced they will return this April with a new album. ‘We Can Do What We Want‘ is our first taste of what is to come from Undertow – and it is clear that Drenge have not lost any of their energy and rage which we have come to associate with them.
Juan Wauters – ‘Woke Up Feeling Like Sleeping Peculiar’
Simple lyrics over a peculiar sounding acoustic guitar. Juan Wauters’s solo effort North American Poetry is full of tracks like this that sound like they were written just for Sunday’s where all there is to do is listen and nap.
Milky Chance – ‘Flashed Junk Mind (filous remix)’
A great song to soothe your head slowly back into gear this morning. Filous is a remix master and combining his talents with the awesome Milky Chance produces a sublimey chilled out tune that I just can’t get enough of.
Five Finger Death Punch – ‘Burn Mother Fucker Burn’
Pumping, thumping, screaming, kick-the-hangover-through-the-wall, bring-me-to-life drag me to hell song that I fucking love! If this song does not pump you up and make you want to plough through a damn mountain then you aren’t human! Off of the album Wrong Side Of Heaven – Vol 1 this chainsaw of a tune will grab you by the balls and drag you through any obstacle that stands in your way. The solo in the middle of the song still reminds me of the mosh pit in Dublin when all hell broke loose watching them perform this monster live, my ‘heavy set’ song for the gym. As the logo says ‘F**K POP, LET’S ROCK!’
