July Playlist

Another month, another monthly playlists, so without further ado, I give you my July playlist.

1. Devil's Backbone- The Civil Wars- This songs is so hauntingly beautiful with ethereal harmonies and eerie lyrics. It has a somewhat gospel/folk vibe to it and is perfect to listen to when relaxing. I'm not sure what it is, but the song is so all encompassing and haunting that when it finishes I kind of feel an emptiness, as if the song just left me part way through, and I have to play it again to get my Devil's Backbone fix.
2. Get Up Offa That Thing- James Brown- One of the greats of soul and funk, James Brown could certainly sing, and this is one of my favourite James Brown songs. When listening it you have just gotta dance, and well, I guess "get up offa that thing"....
3. Love is the Future- Hot Chip- Whenever I listen to this song, I always imagine one of those movie montages in my head, human interaction on super speed, people laughing, together, going out, that kind of thing. This song is perfect for me whilst I spend most of my days alone at home, being up beat and aiding me in my daydreams.
4. Passenger- Iggy Pop- I recently spent an evening watching highlights of The Old Grey Whistle Test with my parents, when a young Iggy Pop appeared (shirtless of course) and it just rekindled my love for his music. This song has to be one of his most famous along with Lust for Life. Passenger is just the perfect summer song, to dance to barefoot in the grass, to listen to whilst on a road trip, or even just to lie back and watch the world go by to.
5. Fortune 500- Everything Everthing This song comes from Everything Everything's new and rather brilliant album, which was released on the 22nd June. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a very good audio for this song, (with this post being written the day after the albums release), but this live version is pretty great regardless.
