January music

Lazy Indie Sundays – January 2015’s mix is my musical opening of 2015

01 Sylvan Esso – Coffee

There’s not much about them on wikipedia. They’re new. Their first single ‘Coffee’ is a milky mix of electro and lively female indie vocals. I think it was a great start of January’s music selection.

Lazy Indie Sundays - Jan, 2015
A friend of mine got a baby cat last month. I discovered that I have an allergy. But I love cats anyways.

02 Beck – Turn away

The great moment when I discovered their new album. And when I heard this song in a nice movie.

03 Saint Raymond – Fall at your feet

It’s always refreshing to hear the complete British sounding. This 19-year-old boy has a class!

04 George Ezra – Budapest

I have a friend in Budapest. But between her being and getting back there, we were hitting the road in Iceland to discover the Gulfoss waterfall and the Gaysir. So, when she told me that she likes my mixes, I decided that I had to put a hidden message here, I hope she got it :D

05 Little May – Midnight hour

Ever since I’ve listened to their first EP, I am always thinking where to play one of their songs. I have them all already in my mixes. They all are perfect. This one is one of my favorite.

06 Francisco the Man – Progress

For me, 2015 will be a year of change and progress. Not sure what are Francisco the Man’s plans, but I really hope they will be quite similar!

07 Au Revoir Simone – Crazy

Did you know where their name comes from? Tim Burton’s 1985 movie Pee-wee’s Big Adventure. I was born that year. Some facts that are truly connected but you don’t care about.

08 Wake Owl – You’ll never go

I just love this band. That’s all.

09 Grouplove – Colours

This song was released in 2011 and was their first success. It’s a classic indie tune to me.

10 Haerts – Hemiplegia

I’ve heard this song in a movie and Shazam did the job. You know, if you see someone shazamming, it’s not necessarily that he/she doesn’t know the song. Sometimes, they just want to remember that they’ve listened to it in that moment.

11 The 1975 – So far (it’s alright)

I was playing at a party and a girl asked me to play The 1975. I promised I will. But I didn’t. I thought I had their song on my Mac, but I didn’t. Sorry!

12 Dustin Tebbutt – The breach

This is the title track from his solo album. He is an Australian guy who went to Sweden to write music. This is the result.

13 Radical Face – Welcome home, son

This song is pure classic.

14 Bon Iver – Holocene

At the end of every mix I tend to add either a great acoustic performance, acoustic cover or a deep tune. This song goes into the last category. It was nominated for several awards, but didn’t receive them. Well, it gets our love. I can play it on repeat without being exhausted.

15 Gotye – Hearts a mess

Thanks to his duo with Kimbra, we discovered him. Half Belgian, half Australian, Gotye is a king of indie and alternative sounding. And this lovely tune was the ending song of ‘The Great Gatsby’. This is how I re-discovered it some time ago. Perfect ending of this mix, too.

Here it is:
