One Quart Magazine Weekly Playlist #35

Barbara Dane – Don’t Sing Love Songs (Silver Dagger)

A friend wrote to me: “Do you want to hear a really great and beautiful song about masculinity and the patriarchy?” “Always” I said. Elspeth Mitchell

Richard Thompson – Can´t Win

Guitar solos are frequently a difficult concept and fall flat in the drama stakes. This one doesn’t. Arttu Tolonen

The Police – Bring On The Night

Stylistically this is the Thompson solo’s polar opposite, but equally effective. Arttu Tolonen

Guitar Slim – The Story Of My Life

And here’s that Andy Summers’ solos spiritual forefather from 1954. Arttu Tolonen

Chas and Dave – Rabbit

Last week my partner asked me “what would be the most English song?” this is what instantly popped into my mind. Nathan Holland

A friend wrote to me: “Do you want to hear a really great and beautiful song about masculinity and the patriarchy?” “Always” I said.

Ленинград — Кольщик

Amazing video that I’ve watched so many times since it came out. Jaakko Mattila

Sviatoslav Richter and Leningrad State Philharmonic Orchestra – Pjotr Tchaikovski: Piano Concerto no 1 B-flat minor, op. 23

Kevään kynnyksellä, kun ihmisetkin heräävät talviunilta, mietin musiikkia joihin liittyy jokin TUOKSU. Laitan tähän pari biisiä jotka herättävät muistoja jotka voi haistaa. Lapsena viikkorahan ehtona huoneen siivous kerran viikossa. Laitoin kyseisen Melodijan vinyylin soimaan kun luuttusin huoneeni lattiaa. Aina konserton kuullessani haistan nenässäni tolun ja muovimaton hajun. Juulia Niiniranta

Billie Holiday – Don’t explain

Billie Holiday, koko tuotanto mutta laitetaan tähän ‘Don’t Explain’. Nuorena työskentelin konditorian kahvilassa ja kuuntelin Billie Holiday -kokoelmaa. Minulla oli rakkaushuolia, ja katselin konditorian ikkunasta Bulevardia kun Billie lauloi taustalla. Billien balladeja kuullessani haistan vadelma-suklaamousseleivokset, juustokakut ja sitruuna-marenkipiirakat. Juulia Niiniranta

The xx – Say Something Loving

I’m addicted to their new album, don’t care whether this was posted before etc but it deserves the slot 🙂 Jaakko Mattila

Maria Lataretu – Sanie cu zurgalai

Selected by Mattias Björkas

Turid – På väg

Selected by Mattias Björkas

Ziyoda – Sevadi Yorim Mani

Selected by Mattias Björkas

Kynnet – Laulu Lapinlahden Linnuille

Kynnet is one of those bands that makes me feel it’s not so awful living these times after all. Henna Hietamäki

Fleetwood Mac – The Ledge

Great song and spot-on production, love the straightforward feel + attitude here. Despite the somewhat distressing lyrical theme, this track always manages to keep me amused. Aki Pohjankyrö

The Magnetic Fields – Washington, D.C.

Released almost 20 years ago, I still keep returning to ’69 love songs’ by The Magnetic Fields. This one’s my latest obsession (and I do have a soft spot for song titles that include places/cities). Aki Pohjankyrö

Cherry Glazerr – Cry Baby

Perfect guitar pop by Cherry Glazerr. Aki Pohjankyrö

 

This week’s playlist selected by Elspeth Mitchell, Arttu Tolonen, Nathan Holland, Jaakko Mattila, Juulia Niiniranta, Mattias Björkas, Henna Hietamäki and Aki Pohjankyrö.
