The Quietus - A new rock music and pop culture website


Our Week In Spotify Bangers No. 1
The Quietus , October 26th, 2012 11:17

A new feature! A weekly Friday Spotify playlist of tracks we've covered on the Quietus over the past seven days

Over a cup of tea and a Turkish wagon wheel from one of Seven Sisters' finest retailers, the Quietus staff decided that, as well as the thousands of words of copy every week, we ought to give you some more music to listen to. As well as all the streams you'll find in our news stories, we're going to do a Friday Spotify playlist related to the music we've been covering over the past week... so here goes.

Jimmy Scott – 'Sycamore Trees'

This Jimmy Scott track is taken from the soundtrack to David Lynch's Twin Peaks – Fire Walk With Me, reappraised in our film section here.

The Soft Moon – 'Breathe' we're streaming their new album Zeros here.

Depeche Mode – 'Behind The Wheel'

Exciting new about Depeche Mode's forthcoming new album and tour here, and an Anniversary feature on Music For The Masses here.

Kylie Minogue – 'Slow'

We've been chasing a Kylie interview since we started the Quietus... but it was worth the wait. A brilliant read from Simon Price, including how Nick Cave inspired her, and what she thought of his mucky Bunny Munroe.

Liars – 'Brats'

John Calvert's Calvert Report muses on a brilliant gig from our American trio at the Scala, London.

Public Enemy – 'Public Enemy No.1'

We asked Chuck D from PE for a Baker's Dozen, but he wasn't having anything of it... and made sure he told Stevie Chick why.

My Disco – 'Wrapped Coast'

We put them on at the Lexington on Tuesday and they melted Supersonic Festival last weekend. Seriously, they're one of the best live bands going... and if you're not on the jamwagon yet you're missing out. They began their set by playing the Factory Floor remix of this track, and improvising over it before the whole Joey Beltram-channelling-Loop blaster kicked in.

DJ Shadow – 'Def Surrounds Us'

DJ Shadow gave us a first person rundown of notable moments from his career.

Emptyset – 'Armature'

If it's on Raster-Noton, it's going to be fierce... Rory Gibb writes that Emptyset were one of the highlights of this year's Unsound Festival.

Hexvessel – 'Woods To Conjure'

Finland-based Hexvessel featured in our Escape Velocity new music section, where they discussed magick, ritual and new forms of experimentalism with Joseph Burnett.

Bat For Lashes – 'Laura'

Matthew Lindsay had many words of praise for Natasha Khan's new LP, The Haunted Man.

Can – 'Waiting For The Streetcar'

The vinyl release of Can's Lost Tapes is confirmed... John is going to sell his son to buy the full set. More info here.

Gnod / White Hills – 'Drop Out'

Gnod played two mighty gigs last weekend, one in London with Goat and Teeth Of The Sea, the other at Supersonic. The sole acceptable crusties in music grind onwards...
