One Quart Magazine Weekly Playlist #20
1. Weyes Blood: Generation Why

“The new Weyes Blood album Front Row Seat To Earth mines a rich strain of folk tradition (think Judy Collins) but also has shades of Judee Sill and Karen Dalton. But this is no mere pastiche or fond remembrance. Generation Why bristles with it’s own sense of adventure and atmosphere, the mood and voice brings us straight to the here and now. Astonishing.” Nick Triani

2. Asap Mob: Crazy Brazy Ft. Asap Rocky X Key! X Asap TwlvyY

“First taste from the Cozy Tapes volume one” Fiacha Harrington.

3. Noura Mint Seymali:  Arbina

“Found this great artist via Matti Nives recommendation on Image, so let this be his addition to the playlist”  Ville Kilpeläinen

4. Run The Jewels: Talk To Me

“Featured on the great Adult Swim singles series and from the upcoming Run The Jewels Three” Fiacha Harrington

Selected by Astrid Swan

6. Pussy Riot:  Straight Outta Vagina (feat. Desi Mo & Leikeli47)

Selected by Ville Kilpeläinen

11. Nightmares in Wax:  Shangrila

Selected by Karstein Volle

12. Fleetwood Mac:  Show Me a Smile

“Early example of Christine McVie’s skillful songwriting” Kaarlo Stauffer

13. Dusty Springfield: Who Gets Your Love

“Dusty in Memphis is widely considered a classic, but fans of that record should also check out Cameo, an underrated (and forgotten) gem in Dusty’s discography”  Ville Kilpeläinen

14. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds:  Jubilee Street

“Finally watched 20,000 Days on Earth and this one stuck with me. One of the best from Nick, I think” Matti Nives

15.  Descendents:  Silly Girl

“When I used to skate with my cousin Pekka (lepää rauhassa kaunis sielusi). He played this at his mini ramp and got me hooked to Descendents. love.”  Jaakko Mattila

16. Elisa Waut:  Russia

“What a time to listen to some Belgian new wave/cold wave music from 1984, by a band called Elisa Waut. This version of the song ‘Russia’ is actually a demo, but this sounds more mysterious and bleaker than the more polished album version. A great pop song, sad thing that they didn’t get more recognition back then. Made me think about different things, like what the passing of time does to different sounds and aesthetics. This feels strange, uplifting, sensual and even “funny” in a certain way. Truly a gem.”  Petri Poutiainen

17. Spoon: Do You

“Despite their obvious ‘rockist’ tendencies, Spoon have managed to walk the tightrope of relevant rock band with aplomb (most bands eventually fall off said tightrope). It’s probably safe to say writing cracking tunes like Do You has kept their step steady. This is simply put down as great pop music.” Nick Triani

18. Hüsker Dü: If I Told You

“This is just really good”  Joel Kupiainen

19. Hank Williams III:  Satan is Real, Straight to Hell

“Since Jack Chick also left us this week” Karstein Volle.

20. Bobby Vee: Rubber Ball

“We also lost Bobby Vee this week. A certain Elston Gunnn got his first taste of on-the-road-life as a piano player (!) in Vee’s band. Elston would later reveal another fake name (Bob Dylan) and take on the world. Vee left us this frivolous piece of nonsense.”  Nick Triani

21. Queens Of The Stone Age:  Feel Good Hit Of The Summer

“Summer is just a distant memory” Fiacha Harrington.

22. Do Your Thing:  Isaac Hayes

“This is the ultimate track. Kevyet mullat Isaac.”  Jaakko Mattila

This week’s playlist was selected by: Fiacha Harrington, Karstein Volle, Astrid Swan, Joel Kupiainen, Nick Triani, Petri Poutiainen, Jaakko Mattila, Matti Nives, Ville Kilpeläinen and Kaarlo Stauffer.
