Our latest Weekly playlist manages to entice different feelings from our curators. Either making them rock, do the house chores, soundtrack ice hockey play-offs, feel better through sadness and sing their tax returns – this weeks musical offerings are motivational.
One Quart Magazine Weekly Playlist #39
Kendrick Lamar – The Heart Part 4
Rap is big even here in the Upper Peninsula Michigan. Kendrick Lamar just knows how to bring something new to the table every time. Kalle Räsänen
Mastodon – Show Yourself
My favorite metal band just released their new album and it rocks. Kalle Räsänen
Lonely Drifter Karen – This World Is Crazy
I still listen to Lonely Drifter Karen although my own drifting days are kind of over. Varpu Eronen
Ana Moura – Desfado
With this song I can get almost anything done in the house. Varpu Eronen

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
The Rolling Blackouts CF have made an EP which just simply refuses to leave my turntable & playlists. Something about this music embodies the sheer creative power of a band which has clearly found their sound and polished it to perfection. Deceivingly simple yet also multilayered and deep contemporary indie rock. Irresistible. PS. Be sure to also check out the great OQ feature by Nick. Matti Nives
Summer Flake – Shoot And Score
A surprise find, and another one on repeat at the moment. Also, the title feels apt as I’m deep into the Finnish ice hockey league playoffs, following each game and pre/post game of my hometown team who at the moment need to “shoot and score” way better. Matti Nives
Eluvium – Amreik
I had trouble sleeping the other night so I put on my headphones and retreated back to my ambient archives in hopes of finding something so soothing I would just wake up in the morning still wearing my headphones and well rested. I popped in the album Copia by Eluvium, and actually didn’t fall asleep at all but enjoyed the nocturnal moment much more upon realizing the remarkable pastoral power of the opening track “Amreik” in particular.

John Moreland – It Don’t Suit Me (Like Before)
John Moreland usually makes me cry. Now he makes me smile. Something weird is going on, he’s not supposed to be happy! Aki Lehti
Andrew Combs – Dirty Rain
Sad songs make me feel better. Aki Lehti
Marianne Faithfull – Why D’ya Do It
I’ll start off with this lovely number. Karstein Volle
Fred Neil – The Dolphins
Something a bit sweeter too. How Fred Neil never became a superstar is a mystery to me. With that voice, he could have sung his tax returns and I would have gladly bought it. Karstein Volle
