The Cleaner
by Squid
(63 plays) | (1 fan)

Did you see Squid? They just had us dancing in the KEXP studio. Keep your eyes peeled for the session on our YouTube channel:) "The Cleaner" was inspired by the band, originally from Brighton, England, moving to London. "Match Bet," another song from the band's debut EP, Town Centre, was a KEXP Song of the Day, which you can download for free: https://bit.ly/3zsssQ8. "We are the first generation that’s been brought up with the internet in developing periods of our lives," brass player and bassist Laurie Nankivell says. "It means that genre is much less definable, it’s not about living in the same city, it’s having something else that draws you together. But it does frustrate me when we’ve been put in the post-punk genre. Post-anything is quite frustrating; it feels like you’re anchored to a movement in the 70s which we don’t have a massive link with." https://bit.ly/2Vvc54B https://squiduk.bandcamp.com/

THIS SONG WILL MAKE YOU FEEL ALIVE. New music from New York songwriter and producer Doss! “‘Jumpin’’ is about letting go, getting lost, and the out-of-sequence memories of wobbling lights and vibrating floors going by like a slow-motion montage,” said Doss. “It’s going wherever the night takes you and being up for anything.” https://pitchfork.com/news/doss-shares-new-song-jumpin-listen/

Sweet Dreams are Made of This

#416 on our listeners' top tracks of all time In the New York Times October 30, 2007, Annie Lennox recalled that this was written by the duo just after they'd had a bitter fight. "I thought it was the end of the road and that was that," she said. "We were trying to write, and I was miserable. And he just went, well, 'I'll do this anyway.'" Dave Stewart came up with a beat, Annie Lennox improvised the synthesizer riff, and suddenly they realized they had a potential hit. https://bit.ly/2DfZRWx
