Eleanor
by Hot Chip
(30 plays) | (0 fans)

Frontman Alexis Taylor explained of "Eleanor" - "The verses are about separation when families are divided against their will. It’s about strong friends. It’s also about Samuel Beckett giving André The Giant lifts to school, and about how Beckett must have learned a lot from Andre’s wisdom." https://bit.ly/3PbQ6c7

The second album from this Philippines-born, London-raised artist (aka Bea Kristi) is a well-crafted, ‘90s-steeped blend of dream-pop, shoegazer psych-rock, folk-pop, grunge, bossa nova and other styles, combining fuzzy/jangly guitars, atmospheric keyboards, lush strings and more with her angelic vocals and wistful melodies.

Fix Up, Look Sharp
by Dizzee Rascal
(94 plays) | (0 fans)

On July 21, 2003, Dylan Kwabena Mills, better known by his stage name Dizzee Rasca, released "Boy in da Corner" in the UK. It would be released the following year in the United States. -- The beat for this song heavily samples "The Big Beat" by Billy Squier. In a 2016 interview, Dizzee Rascal noted about making this one, "I started writing so that the “Woos!” would come at the end of the sentence. I built around that. It wasn’t crazy to me because I was into heavy metal and rock and grunge before I was into hip-hop." https://bit.ly/3zMeTfw

Fables
by Interpol
(1 play) | (0 fans)

This New York trio’s seventh album is a more reflective and low-key take on the band’s dark post-punk, combining angular guitars, atmospheric keyboards and mostly midtempo rhythms with Paul Banks’ stately croon and hope-filled lyrics acting as a balm for troubled times.
