An American Spaniard in France or: How I Learned to Make an Ass of Myself in Three Cultures

2013 Winter playlist, Part 2

Leave a comment

You’re welcome, greater Paris region. I’m pretty sure that by closing my 2013 Winter playlist last week, I singlehandedly brought spring to this part of the world.

Winter 2013, Part 2.1

  1. Fanfarlo, “A Distance” (2013) — a-ha for a new generation.
  2. Favored Nations, “The Setup” (2013) — all about the bass line.
  3. FEMME, “Fever Boy” — like the best possible version of The Go-Gos
  4. Gaëtan Roussel, “La simplicité” — see here.
  5. Grizzly Bear, “Speak In Rounds” (2013) — in an alternate universe, this would be on the B-side of Pink Floyd’s Obscured By Clouds.
  6. HAERTS, “All The Days” (2013) — strummy bass line + ethereal voice.
  7. John Newman, “Cheating” (2013) — piano + Gnarls Barkley.
  8. The Killers, “Shot At The Night” (2013) — like pretty much all their songs.
  9. Labrinth, “Express Yourself” (2013) — funky, electro-swing.
  10. Lorde, “Buzzcut Season” (2013) — Suzanne Vega + The xx.
  11. Luca Vasta, “Cut My Hair” (2013) — Germany’s Lykke Li and Ich mag diese.

Winter 2013 Part 2.2

  1. MØ, “XXX 88” (2013) — Danish singer, sultry and similar to other female singers I like.
  2. Nicole Atkins, “Girl You Look Amazing” (2013) — Chrissie Hynde for a new generation.
  3. NoNoNo, “Pumpin’ Blood” (2013) — whistling + Icona Pop / Sophie Ellis-Bextor sound.
  4. Pharrell Williams, “Happy” (2014) — why this album took so long to come out is a mystery to me.
  5. The Rapture, “No Sex For Ben” (2013) — if you like LCD Soundsystem or Radio 4 (the band).
  6. Satellite Stories, “Campfire” (2013) — The Postal Service + Friendly Fires.
  7. Trails and Ways, “Como Te Vas” (2013) — they describe themselves as “bossa nova dream pop.”
  8. Wankelmut & Emma Louise, “My Head is a Jungle” (2013) — another great biking/twirling song.
  9. Wolf Colony, “Holy” (2013) — melancholy piano.
  10. The Wombats, “Your Body Is A Weapon” (2013) — kind of The Futureheads + Artic Monkeys
