Weekly Playlist

What an eventful week it's been with David Bowie's surprise comeback and announcement of new material, The Brit Awards nominations finally being revealed and Black Sabbath unveiling the name of their upcoming album. It really does look like 2013 is turning out to be an exciting year for music.

David Bowie - Where Are We Now?
As a longtime fan of David Bowie, I was delighted that on his 66th Birthday he decided to release a new single, and announce plans for his album "The Next Day" to be released in March. As 2012 was all about The Stone Roses, will 2013 be all about David Bowie? Time will only tell.
For fans of: Iggy Pop, Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, The Who and The Doors.


Arctic Monkeys - Fright Lined Dining Room
Yes, I know this is a B side but honestly I think that Arctic Monkeys' b sides are better than some of their actual single releases. This is definitely my favourite track by this band - give it a listen.
For fans of: The Strokes, The Vaccines, Queens Of The Stone Age, Oasis and Kasabian.

Biffy Clyro - Black Chandelier
With some songs it really does take a while before they start to grow on you, and this is the case with Biffy Clyro's latest track. I've been listening to it on the radio for ages, however it wasn't until last night when I saw the band perform on The Jonathan Ross Show that I appreciated it.
For fans of: Jimmy Eat World, White Lies, Feeder, Kaiser Chiefs and Twin Atlantic.

Foals - My Number
I have been a fan of Foals for many years and I am really excited for the release of their new album next month. Foals' first release from Holy Fire was a track called "Inhaler" and both of the aforementioned songs portray Foals as heading into a new musical direction. Things are looking promising for the band.
For fans of: Friendly Fires, The Drums, The Big Pink, The Maccabees and Delphic.

Ben Howard - Call Me Maybe (Cover)
I cannot stand the original version of this song, however I adore Ben Howard and he managed to rework this track into something beautiful. Just give it a listen and fall in love; you can thank me later.
For fans of: The Lumineers, The Velvet Underground, Bombay Bicycle Club, Noah And The Whale and Daughter.
