One Quart Magazine Weekly Playlist #42
Shabazz Palaces – Shine a Light feat. Thaddillac

This brand new Shabazz Palaces has a sweeter groove than before (and a heavy sample reminiscent of early Avalanches). ‘Shine A Light’ springs in it’s step but has an inner street vibe that’s wanting. Nick Triani

Katy Perry – Bon Appétit ft. Migos

The new Katy Perry single continues the good form of ‘Chained to the Rhythm’. ‘Bon Appétit’ really has this years pop-smarts. Lovely. Nick Triani

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever – Sick Bug

This is from my fave record so far this year – RBCF hit early Go-Betweens nirvana on the ‘Sick Bug’ sing along. Nick Triani

Rami Vierula – Muutun Taas

This new Rami Vierula track is gorgeous. Nick Triani

Talking Heads – Psycho Killer

I saw Stop Making Sense at Staines Cinema late night Friday screening not long after it’s release. After the start of the movie the whiff of dope smoke filled the air around me (you could smoke in cinema’s in those days!!!!) Slowly but surely people started dancing in the isles. It wasn’t long till people were in front of the screen, their giant shadows obscuring the actual film. In effect, a drunken/stoned riot broke out in the cinema. They had to call the police and put the lights on…all the while the film kept playing as a backdrop. I’ve seen the movie since, but that disrupted screening was the best. RIP Jonathan Demme. Nick Triani

The Lemonheads – It’s About Time

Gotta know your roots. Aleksi Pahkala

Midway Still – Better Than Before

Stay true. Aleksi Pahkala

The Big Moon – Silent Movie Susie

The Summer hit of 2017. Aleksi Pahkala

Moloko – Over And Over

Love The drums, bass and guitar riff. The chorus and the church bells at the end of this incredible song. Lotta Savolainen

Splashh – See Through

Selected by Teppo Meriläinen

Father John Misty – Total Entertainment Forever

Selected by Fiacha Harrington

Blondie – Rapture

“And you don’t stop, sure shot.” Fiacha Harrington

Beastie Boys – Sure Shot

The Beastie Boys reference the line “and you don’t stop, sure shot” from Blondie’s proto rap crossover track rapture. Both the Beastie Boys and Blondie before them were crucial for rap music reaching out to the mainstream. Fiacha Harrington

Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five – The Message
Gil Scott-Heron – Revolution Will Not Be Televised

Two more tracks that are proto rap. Both of these are strong protest songs and have shown the way for many rap artists to follow – and the importance of rap music as social commentary. Fiacha Harrington

Gorillaz – Let Me Out

The new Gorillaz album is out now. ‘Let Me Out’ features both Pusha T and Mavis Staples. Fiacha Harrington

The War On Drugs – Thinking Of A Place

New from The War on Drugs – this is epic to say the least. Fiacha Harrington

HAIM – Right Now

A hint of what to expect from the new Haim album. Fiacha Harrington

…these are strong protest songs and have shown the way for many rap artists to follow

And this one a decade old. Still rocks. Karstein Volle

Even older stuff, but not as old as the first tune. Karstein Volle
