José González – Teardrop
No one does a mellow cover quite like Argentian-Swedish musician José González. We’ve featured his excellent rendition of The Knife’s hit Heartbeats in an earlier playlist and I just discovered his version of Massive Attack’s monster hit Teardrop. It’s a beautiful song and González does it justice.
Junip – Line Of Fire
Swedish band Junip features José González in its lineup. Yes, I’m a big fan of his music this week – I went on a listening spree. This song stuck in my head.
Oh Land – Sun Of A Gun (Jacob Plant Remix)
Danish singer/songwriter/producer Nanna Øland Fabricius – Oh Land – gets the remix treatment on this 2011 hit. Good energy.
Divine Fits – Flaggin’ A Ride
Sometimes you need a fuss-free, driving rock tune to keep things moving. This week,
American/Canadian indie band Divine Fits fits the bill with their 2012 song Flaggin’ A Ride. Listen loud.
Enya – Only Time
This song is totally in here only because of that absolutely insane Jean-Claude Van Damme Volvo ad. Have you seen it yet? Go here, scroll all the way to the end. Watch it, be amazed and then come back to listen to the full song. Goosebumps I tell you!
