What we’re listening to this week #17

Curated by Andy, the WWLTTW playlist takes you on a weekly audio tour of the Design Bridge Studios. Listen to what we listen to. We hope you’ll find some inspiration.


This is the time of year when there is a giant post-Summer void to be filled. A sort of musical fifth season before all of your leaves fall off. So let’s remember that Summer did festivals. Some of them had sunshine. It certainly sounded sunny at the Pitchfork Music Festival. Here’s Waxahatchee playing La Loose:

Bombastic? So say the Guardian of these “Atlantan ambient-punks winding their way through swaggering funk rock”. This is Deerhunter – Snakeskin

Rock and Soul. Does what it says on the tin. Jackaman – You Can’t Take Back

Now for Metal Boy’s pin-up gal doing some sterling power-pop works. Brody Dalle – Don’t Mess With Me

Anna got to hear this played live in a friend of a friend’s living room recently. She says, “It’s brilliant and the opening makes me think of the end of summer”.
 Peter Matthew Bauer – Philadelphia Raga

My Mother in Law has been staying with us. She calls me Al. Paul Simon – You Can Call Me Al:

Nights drawing in? Staying in to watch TV? Maybe not quite like this… Girl Band – Pears for Lunch:

Some apologies to our Leaver’s Club, the summer hiatus means that we had to pre-record the last four lists and missed their dedications. So farewell Laura. Here’s her favourite ever song, Jimmy Soul – If You Wanna Be Happy:

And toodle-oo to Claire. “And I wonder. If everything could ever feel this real forever. If anything could ever be this good again.” Foo Fighters – Everlong (acoustic):

And this one’s for Claire, too. “We’ve got a conclusion, and I guess that’s something.” Bran Van 3000 – Drinking in LA:

And farewell  to summer. Let’s all sing “Gliddy glup gloopy,
 Nibby nabby noopy la la la lo lo, Sabba sibby sabba, Nooby abba nabba le le lo lo, Tooby ooby walla nooby abba nabba.” You really couldn’t make this stuff up.
 Oliver – Good Morning Starshine:
