June kicked-off since a couple of days now and as usual we take a short break to look back at the month of May to share our Monthly Playlist. If this shitty spring never comes at least we could enjoy some great rock’n’roll tunes!
Highlights? New Miles Kane’s album, Primal Scream back in charge, our MJF Indie Folk review, new MGMT, QOFTSA, the discovery of Bass Drum of Death, Drenge, The Family Rain without forgetting the saddest moment: Ray Manzarek’s passing away.
Here we go, we are not here to talk but to rather listening to music!
- Miles Kane – Don’t Forget Who You Are: definitely one of the candidate for the best album of the year
- Daughter – Youth: the Acoustic Wednesday discovery of the month
- British Sea Power – Radio Goddard: their best album so far?
- Bass Drum of Death – Get Found: discovery of the month thanks to BRMC!
- Primal Scream – It’s Alright it’s Ok: Bobby Gillespie and co. are back and we are back in the nineties
- Of Monsters and Men – Six Weeks: rendez-vous @ Montreux Jazz, DO NOT MISS THEM!
- Queens of the Stone Age – My God is the Sun: apparently Josh Hommes has the sun that we were missing…
- Peace – Lovesick: we can’t get this song out of our playlist! Nice lads, great gig (read here our Lausanne’s review)
- MGMT – Alien Days: 3rd album is coming, will the fans of the 1st album (Oracular Spectacular) be disappointed?
- Jake Bugg – As Simple As This: I think by the time we have shared almost his full album, it kind of proves how good it is!
- Patrick Watson – Big Bird in a Small Cage: don’t miss him @MJF!
- Drenge – Dogmeat: when Nasty Tuesday meets Fuckin Monday. Grunge, wild, guitars, ROCK!
- Who’s Panda – Vultures: one of the best Swiss band around,
- The Family Rain – Carnival: musical entrepreneurship will bring them very far
- Schonwald – Mercurial: post-punk as alive as ever from Italy!
- The Doors – Light My Fire: in the month where Ray meets Jim again we couldn’t miss Mr Manzarek at his best
