Strange Pleasures – Still Corners

Everyone has a dream-pop mood right?

Still Corners are a British/American duo that make the kind of indie that transports you through time and space – embracing you, picking you up and taking you on a journey. Here is my favourite album (their second) from 2013.

They have a lovely back-story too – the duo (Greg Hughes and Tessa Murray) met by accident on a random train platform in London. If its possible, I think you can kind of hear it in their music…

Like what you hear? They are on tour right now.

All Along the Watchtower – Jimi Hendrix

I’m growing a moustache to raise money for the Movember Foundation. So this month I will be honouring some of the best moustaches in music. You can donate to my mo here: https://mobro.co/harry-mo

If I could transport myself back to any concert in history, I’d go to 1969 Woodstock. Jimi Hendrix played one of the longest sets of his career and the festival itself is a part of counter-cultural folklore. There are some moments in history when music wraps itself into the social consciousness – this was one of them.

Little Lion Man – Mumford & Sons

Something rocky for you this Sunday. Not many people do anthemic indie-rock better than Mumford & Sons, and boy is Little Lion Man a classic. If you want more Mumford they have a new album out, Delta, and they are on tour too.

Bonus track: hey, I’m posting Mumford & Sons today. Have a bit of this.

7 – Beach House

Sitting somewhere between dream-pop, shoegaze and indie-rock, you’ll find Beach House. is the duo’s seventh album (clever). My highlights are the tense and foreboding Lemon Glow, and Black Car. I’m off to see them for the first time at The Troxy tonight. Very excited.

Bonus track: Sparks is my favourite. Guitar comes screeching through some chanting and takes you on a magical ride before you know what’s happening. It’s good, trust me. Try the album Depression Cherry for more of the same.
