This isn’t a list I’d recommend when you need to focus and get stuff done: we have plenty of other lists for that. This is a list for when you just want to feel alive. Featuring artists like: Bring Me The Horizon • FEVER 333 • Mastodon• Architects • Strapping Young Lad • Cradle of Filth • August Burns Red • Enter Shikari
Picture the scene: you’ve burnt a million miles on your journey to escape reality. You’re out in the boonies, as far from other humans as you can possibly be. It’s just you, the open road, and your favourite tunes. And then you break down. Featuring artists like: All Them Witches • Black Rebel Motorcycle Club • Eagles Of Death Metal • IDLES • The Kills • Band Of Skulls • Meat Puppets • Mastodon
The forecast for this playlist: Heavy winds and sunny grooves followed by clouds of introspection and heartbreaking rains that give way to thunderous and lightning rage, before the sun reemerges to melt your face–only to repeat the cycle in a different order – featuring artists like Nine Inch Nails • Twenty-one Pilots • Tool • Santigold • Bad Brains • The Roots • Faith No More • The Beastie Boys
I can’t stop listening to this record. There is no fat on it and it has everything I love about music. “Organ Farmer” is just plain rad.
Align with the heavenly hosts and cross the abyss with Christopher Winn. Featuring artists like: Between the Buried and Me • Gojira • Rivers of Nihil • Lacey Sturm • Sleep Waker • Mastodon
I love this band and their new record started off with a laugh I needed this week. A great take a on a classic song.
If you’re looking for a sad song this week I’m sorry but you’re shit out of luck. If however you’re looking to get to grips with your grief, maybe take it out and show it what you think of it – this might be the perfect track.
