Weekly Playlist

The first week of the Christmas holiday is almost over, and it has been hectic!
Fortunately, I did not have to go in to work on Christmas Eve, so I had a relaxing day watching Christmas movies and being festive. I managed to get in a few hours of revision too - January exams are coming up and I would feel guilty if I didn't revise as much as possible.
On Christmas Day I consumed too much food (but it's Christmas so that's fine) and had a lovely morning opening presents, giving other people their gifts, watching more movies and sitting down to a lovely Christmas roast. It was back to work on Boxing Day and the restaurant was quite busy due to the sales.
Here is what I have been listening to this week.
The Killers - Smile Like You Mean It
The Killers are one of those bands who I like but sometimes find myself unimpressed by. Honestly, I didn't really like their latest album 'Battle Born' although their first album 'Hot Fuss' and 2008's effort 'Day & Age' were great. I think that with 'Battle Born' the songs were overplayed and there was so much hype that it never met people's expectations.
For fans of: Muse, U2, The Strokes, Green Day and Snow Patrol.
The Courteeners - Lose Control
I started listening to this band towards the start of 2012, although I lost interest in them for a while. This is their latest single which I heard on the radio recently, and it was this song that got me back into their music.
For fans of: The Twang, The View, The Enemy, The Cribs and The Maccabees.
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Especially In Michigan
RHCP are one of my absolute favourite bands and I adore this song. I have been listening to it a lot more lately and you should too. Give it a listen.
For fans of: Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Beastie Boys, Pink Floyd and Guns N' Roses.
Palma Violets - Best of Friends
This song has been floating around for a while now, and was the initial sound that got the underground scene's hottest band noticed. These guys are tipped for big things next year; watch out for their debut album.
For fans of: Peace, The Vaccines, The Cribs, The Libertines and The Strokes.
I Am Kloot - These Days Are Mine
I have heard this song around a few places and it has stuck been stuck in my head. The band have a new album expected for release in January 2013.
For fans of: Elbow, The Coral, Supergrass, The Zutons and Doves.
