Five things you should be listening to this weekend (Vol. 7)

This week, Kim Kardashian tried to break the internet, while Diplo decided to try and crowdfund a booty for Taylor Swift. This may not have much to do with the music I’ll be posting, but you can’t beat a good bit of booty news. If you’re looking for some music to shake your booty to this weekend, then you’ve come to the right place.

Deers – Castigadas en el Granero

So this week I’m starting out with a request – I’d never heard of Deers before now, so a big thanks to Kate for putting me onto them! The Spanish four piece released this absolute mouthful of a single at the start of November, which I’ve been told roughly translates to “Grounded in the Barn”. So there’s your random fact of the day.

Tom Misch – 4 Hour Song Challenge

I’m becoming a bigger and bigger fan of Tom Misch with each new track of his I hear. Apparently, for this one he challenged himself to start a song completely from scratch and get it recorded and uploaded to SoundCloud within four hours – hence the title. The fact that he managed to do this all in just four hours only impresses me further.

Bonobo – Pelican

In case the music world wasn’t already excited about Bonobo’s upcoming Flashlight EP, which is due to drop on 2nd December, he also released a new track from the record to whet our collective appetites. As with a lot of Bonobo tracks, Pelican has hazy afterparty soundtrack written all over it.

TALA – Everybody’s Free

Found somewhere between RnB and electro-pop, TALA’s remix of Quindon Tarver’s “Everybody’s Free (To Feel Good) has definitely got my attention. From the acapella intro to the synth and base heavy body of the track, what’s not to love?

Lorde – Flicker (Kanye West Rework)

I have never seen or read any of The Hunger Games, and I don’t know much about Lorde, but this week saw Kanye West rework her track Yellow Flicker Beat as part of the soundtrack for the upcoming movie, Mockingjay. I hadn’t heard the original version before this, but after listening to them both, I much prefer Kanye’s moody, darker version.

I can’t listen to Lorde without thinking of this now though…

You’re welcome.
