One Quart Magazine Weekly Playlist #30
Ryan Adams – Karma Police

Ryan Adams cover of Radiohead‘s ‘Karma Police’. Fiacha Harrington

Future Islands – Ran

Future Islands is/are back with a new single ‘Ran’. Ville Kilpeläinen

BNQT – Restart

Members of Midlake, Grandaddy, Band of Horses, Franz Ferdinand and Travis have formed a new supergroup called BNQT (short for Banquet). Expect a full album in April. Midlake members Eric Pulido, McKenzie Smith, Joey McClellan, and Jesse Chandler form the core whilst joining them as vocalists are: Band of Horses’ Ben Bridwell, Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos, Grandaddy’s Jason Lytle, and Travis’ Fran Healy. Fiacha Harrington.

The xx – Say Something Loving

Their new album sounds incredible on vinyl, looking forward hearing them again in Suvilahti. Jaakko Mattila.

Regina Spektor – Black and White

Selected by Fiacha Harrington

Gabriella Cohen – I Don’t Feel So Alive

Gabriella Cohen’s forthcoming debut album on Captured Tracks Full Closure and No Details has crossed my radar mainly down to the excellence of ‘I Don’t Feel So Alive’. This is effortlessly cool and brings the required guitar onslaught – almost a tribute to the Velvet Underground , and yeah that’s alright with me. This is sublime. Nick Triani

Father John Misty – Two Wildly Different Perspectives

Father John Misty has now shared another new track from his forthcoming album Pure Comedy. The song ‘Two Wildly Different Perspective’ comes with a provocative video by Matthew Daniel SIskin, featuring footage of children from around the world juxtaposed with images of guns. Posting the video, FJM wrote, “More kids are going to die now thanks to the unbelievably selfish immigration policy of places like Saudi Arabia and the USA.”  Fiacha Harrington

Sampha – (No One Knows Me) Like The Piano

One of the stand out tracks from Sampha’s new album Process. Ville Kilpeläinen

Depeche Mode – Where’s the Revolution

Depeche Mode are back with this first track from their forthcoming album Spirit. Fiacha Harrington.

Molly Burch – Wrong For You

Also new on Captured Tracks, Molly Burch has a sound akin to a rawer Neko Case, but an understated approach (supplied by the sneaking chorus) and a lovely expressive vocal makes this worth yours and my time. Nick Triani

Migos – T-Shirt

New track ‘T- Shirt’ from the Atlanta trio Migos comes from their new album called Culture. The video looks like it could have been shot in Lapland. If you like this then check out the hit ‘Bad and Boujee’. Fiacha Harrington.

PALLBEARER – Thorns

Pallbearer can’t be best described as alternative doom metal. This new track ‘Thorns’ is from their forthcoming album Heartless. Fiacha Harrington.

Captain Beefheart – Ice Cream for Crow

The great Captain was still delivering the weirdness late into his career. This could be as close to a hit as CB ever got. Nick Triani.

LCD Soundsystem – Daft Punk Is Playing At My House

Selected by Astrid Swan.

Fire Engines – Get Up and Use Me

I love the trash aesthetics of this, The Fire Engines were fine purveyors of this kind of filth, ‘Get Up And Use Me’ revels in barbaric and unhinged glee. Nick Triani.

Hurray for the Riff Raff – BE MY BABY

Hurray For the Riff Raff cover the Ronnie Spector classic ‘Be My Baby’. Fiacha Harrington

Stephen Malkmus – Jo Jo’s Jacket

Stephen Malkmus’ solo output doesn’t get the kudos it deserves. Not too many songs about Yul Brynner out there either. It’s amazing to think this is over 15yrs old. Nick Triani.

Paul Simon – Graceland

This always takes me back to many places. Jaakko Mattila.

The FALL – Rowche Rumble

I love the room sound of this early Fall. A favourite of John Peel, I remember this getting a lot of airtime when I first started listening to his radio show. Marvelous. Nick Triani.

Beyoncé – All Night

You must have heard the news! The Queen is expecting babies! This is my favorite song from her album Lemonade. Astrid Swan.

Mother Goose – Pocket Rock

Mother Goose are probably the most underrated band to emerge from the Finnish underground. Period. You will not have heard of them and googling them will probably not give you the results you want. Yet, they have released a series of often wonderful and sometimes amazing records on tiny labels from here and elsewhere (Check out Autumn Masochism and Anna Lumena, released in 2003 and 2009 respectively on Verdura Records)

They will have a new record out soon. They will also perform in Helsinki at Lepakkomies on the 23rd of March. Joel Kupiainen

The Go-Betweens – Head Full Of Steam

I’m almost through with reading Robert Forster‘s excellent bio on Grant McLennan, Grant and I. The book not only focusses on The Go-Betweens dynamic duo’s personal friendship, but gives a fascinating overview of a band that should have been massive (they had the songs) but somehow managed to court disaster throughout their career. Forster notes that he went through a heavy Prince phase in the mid-1980’s and the ‘Head Full Of Steam’ video is a homage to the purple one’s ‘Kiss’ video. If you look closely enough, yes that is Grant in full drag. Nick Triani.

This week’s playlist was put together by: Astrid Swan, Nick Triani, Ville Kilpeläinen, Fiacha Harrington, Joel Kupiainen and Jaakko Mattila.
