Here's what we've been listening to this month...
Mr. Hudson feat. Idris Elba - Step Into the Shadows
The most relaxing song you can imagine. Even though it has just been released, we had the privelege of hearing it for the first time back in October when we went to a Mr Hudson gig in Hoxton. 'He is amazing and only keeps on getting better and better' Quote unquote, Maria.
The Black Keys - Fever
I'm a big fan of these guys (who isn't?!) and their new single is doing what it is supposed to - giving me Fever!
Arctic Monkeys - AM
It is no surprise that they are on the May Top Tunes...as we're going to be seeing them live for the first time this month!!! Bucket list experience for me. Their AM album was my album of the year for 2013 - no contest. I still listen to it start to finish regularly and have not yet tired of it (and I've listened to it A LOT). I've got so many favourites off that album it's hard to choose.
Tame Impala - Lonerism
They're performing alongside the Arctic Monkeys, along with Miles Kane, at the gig in Finsbury Park on 23rd May that we're going to. Yes, it is true!
Here are the Artcic Monkeys covering Tame Impala's 'Feels like we only go backwards' - don't you just love their accents?!
Green Velvet - Bigger than Prince (Hot Since 82 Remix)
When I first heard this track I thought, like the dork that I am, that it was 'Walk around like you're bigger than BASS' - well, when I discovered that it was 'Bigger than Prince' - it made so much more sense ;) You can hear it on our Soundcloud account. *Bigger than PRINCE people*
Waves - Mr Probz (Robin Schulz Remix)
What can I say, this is the perfect summer tune.
Podcast of the Month: The Danny Howard Podcast
For those of you who know me, you would know that I'm a bit of a fan of this Northern lad. I first saw him live in Ibiza last year, and his was the stand out performance for me - a 5am set which is not an easy one. I then found out he was a Radio 1 DJ, having won a talent search. And I try to see his sets whenever I can. We'll be seeing him in Ibiza again this summer, as he now has a residency at Pacha Ibiza #hooray!
