ICYMI - This Week on WIIHAMB - 2015 Week #7

In case you missed it - You shouldn't have, but just in case you did.

I'm currently experiencing the worst bout of internet connection ever so forgive me and my pathetic posts this weekend.

Keep up to date with all of the daily goings-on over at WIIHAMB Daily.

I don’t know how credible it is to post Our Last Night but it’s too late for that. I definitely rate Our Last Night’s covers higher than their original stuff and this one is no exception.

Lust Game is producer Scott Quinn’s beautiful debut EP featuring six stunning downtempo RnB tracks. AND it’s up for pay-whatever-you-goddamn-please download on Bandcamp. (I posted this for I’m In Love but The City is just as good if not better. Fuck it, it’s all great.)

Bad Luck, to me, are this great band who never release songs and never play shows outside of Scotland. Well this past weekend, one of those things changed as Bad Luck released new double A side single Ghost/Blind. I preferred ‘Blind’ so here it is in all it’s excellent glory.

Something upbeat to pull you through the latter part of Tuesday (i.e. by far the worst day of the week) in the form of ‘Tears’ from upcoming Midlands based producer duo TC4. I was proper into this as a right joyous vibe until I realised that the lyrics are all about crying… either way Onyda absolutely smashes the whole vocal thing.

This is awful? Correct. But it’s embarrassingly horrendously incredible at the same time? Correct. I don’t really know what’s going on here or why this song exists or why Charli XCX and Tinashe have been roped into it. BUT after the sheer shock of the first listen, it squares (you know, as in multiplies by itself) itself in greatness each listen thereafter.

Shy Girls has teamed up with Tei Shi for this track, ‘Arrest Me’, which features on his new free to download mixtape 4WZ. I’m not massive into Shy Girls or Tei Shi separately but together they’ve created this dreamy three minute piece of RnB.

Throwback Thursday
A little different Throwback Thursday today in that this version is pretty new but the two tracks MNEK has refixed together are pretty throwback. The young pop soul genius has mashed up his own version of Vanessa Carlton’s ‘A Thousand Miles’ with The B-52’s ‘Love Shack’ and it sounds pretty good.

Francesca Bergami, better known a Lyves, does beautiful “ambient alt soul”, demonstrated perfectly by new track ‘Shelter’. This is the first song to be taken from her upcoming EP due for release this Spring.

Really into this 80s vibe female vocal thing lately, probably a lot more so after seeing Ekkah live last month. Pr0files seem to almost be the LA based male/female equivalent. Look, anyway, the point is, if you want to put something cool on at a party that will suit the mood pretty effortlessly, this is it.

February playlists so far: YouTube / Spotify / Deezer
