SLEEP, a fry up, exercise, hair of the dog – all valid hangover cures, but nothing will ever beat a proper #SundaySoundtrack to ease you through the repercussions of last night’s shenanigans. So with that being said The Music Brewery is back bringing you a range of musical gems.
L.A. Salami – ‘Day to Day for 6 Days a Week’
A friend of mine showed me this song a few weeks ago and it has been stuck on repeat. The stylish modern folk star from London has gone a bit under the radar but on the strength of this song alone he has to be one of the UK’s next biggest stars. A melodic tale that showcases L.A. Salami’s outrageous storytelling ability ‘Day to Day for 6 Days a Week’ is the best way to start a Sunday.
Sister Nancy – ‘Bam Bam’
Probably now best known for being on sampled on Kanye West’s ‘Famous’, ‘Bam Bam’ is a reggae anthem from one of dancehall’s most legendary artists. Sit back, relax and bob your head to the beat.
SWMRS – ‘Figuring It Out’
After their recent appearance on James Cordon’s The Late Late Show, SWMRS seemed destined for big things. ‘Figuring It Out’ is a pop-punk throwback with the teen angst and addictive chorus we have all come to love at one time or another.
Childish Gambino – ‘Sober’
Is there anything Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino can’t do? No. The actor, rapper, comedian and singer has a big year ahead of him, his new TV show Atlanta (a music based comedy show) is set to debut on the 6th September, while also working his highly anticipated follow up album to the brilliant because the internet. We’re yet to hear anything proper from the album but if it is anything like his sweet serenade of ‘Sober’ we have a serious contender for album of the year on the way.
Common – ‘So Far To Go’
‘So Far To Go’ had to be here this week, one of my favourite instrumentals of all time from the eternal J Dilla and Common doing what he does best making timeless hip hop with conscientious, funny and hangover curing rhymes.
Chance the Rapper – ‘No Problem’
It’s hard to pick one Chance song for a perfect Sunday Soundtrack but the standout ‘No Problem’ from the outstanding Colouring Book has to be one of the best songs of the year. Venting frustrations with labels slowing his progress, Chance brings back the gospel vibes and hook that is guaranteed to be stuck with you for days in the best way.
James Blake – ‘I Need A Forest Fire’
If you haven’t already listened to The Colour In Anything stop what you are doing, re-evaluate your life decisions and listen to it start to finish.
That’s it from us for this week but if you enjoyed the #SundaySoundtrack give it a like and a share and let us know what would make your perfect Sunday playlist.
