October is a month for long sleeves, chilly nights and post season baseball. Say goodbye to September with this playlist of new music from last month. Whether you prefer to listen via Soundcloud, Rdio or Spotify, I’ve got some brand new tunes from Wales, The Elwins, Brave Shores, Bravestation and many more.
I always try to bring your earworms on Fridays, so you’ll have great tunes to take you through the weekend. Well, here I am, tipping you to this incredible remix by VUURWERK of Belgian band Balthazar‘s song “Bunker”.
Actually, digging into the original as well, I’m now wondering if I prefer it’s laid back vibe. Take a listen, what do you think?
The song comes from the album Thin Walls, which the band completed with the help of Elbow producer Ben Hillier and Jason Cox (Gorillaz, Massive Attack) at Yellow Fish Studios in Lewes. The resultant record is, I’m told, a career-best: “a grizzly, indie-rock album full of nocturnal grooves and mesmeric cadence”.
Interesting. I’ve got some catching up to do, perhaps some homework for the weekend (the best kind of homework though).
North American folks, look for Balthazar on the road playing these key dates.
