One Quart Magazine Weekly Playlist #33
Ride – Charm Assault

Ride – one of the original shoegaze bands – return after twenty years with this new track. Fiacha Harrington.

Lana Del Rey – Love

Lana Del Rey with the effortless ‘Love’, a seemingly innocent statement, wrapped up in pure 50s Americana. It’s amazing how well Del Rey’s sense of nostalgia has lasted, and ‘Love’ quietly resonates. Nick Triani

Son Volt – Back Against The Wall

Taken from the new Son Volt album Notes Of Blue. Whilst Wilco maybe the better known band which formed from the ashes of the legendary alt-country band Uncle Tupelo, Son Volt have continued down that UT country path with their own twist of blues thrown in. Fiacha Harrington.

Joose Keskitalo – Pian Kaikki Vaikeudet

Joose Keskitalo’s new gypsy style earworm/singalong has only one short verse and the rest is all chorus. The refrain is either life affirming or depressing (or both), depending on the listener’s point of view. Ville Kilpeläinen. (Spotify Playlist only)

Body Count – No Lives Matter

‘No Lives Matter’ by ICE-T and his Body Count is a fairly self explanatory song. ICE-T has long been an outspoken advocate of social issues from the times of GHW Bush and is still going strong in these days of social turmoil. Fiacha Harrington.

Willie Nelson – A Woman’s Love

New track from Willie Nelson finds the man delivering well into his eighties. Fiacha Harrington.

Katy Perry – Chained To The Rhythm ft. Skip Marley

Katy Perry delivers some cod-reggae with her new single – the Max Martin produced ‘Chained to the Rhythm’. I’ve really tried to resist it, but this is seriously great pop music. The inclusion of distortion in the lyric is one clue, the repetition of the word ‘rhythm’ at the end of the chorus is almost a meditative utopia. Fantastic, give in to it. Nick Triani.

Lxandra – Flicker

Hello Suomi, we have women singing in English and taking over! Astrid Swan

Kaarlo Stauffer

Miranda Lambert – We Should Be Friends

Miranda Lambert has managed to make the cross over to the mainstream while remaining true to her old school country routes. Fiacha Harrington.

Band Of Horses – In A Drawer

Selected by Fiacha Harrington.

Jenni Vartiainen – Turvasana

This Jenni Vartiainen song has really grown on me and is now my favorite Jenni song. Thanks for representing sexual desire of women! We need more of these songs! The video is beautiful, but still maybe a bit stiff compared to the lyric. Astrid Swan.

Hurray For The Riff Raff – The Navigator

Selected by Fiacha Harrington.

Spoon – Can I Sit Next To You

The forthcoming Spoon album (Hot Thoughts) promises to be a bit special. ‘Can I Sit Next To You’ manages ot combine a Chic strut with Bond-like string arrangements (no mean feat). It shows the band still developing in unexpected areas over 20 years in. This is an extremely addictive track. Nick Triani

Alison Krauss – River In The Rain

Selected by Fiacha Harrington.

Future – Draco

Selected by Fiacha Harrington. (You Tube only)

Kaarlo Stauffer

Milk Music- No, Nothing, My Shelter

Picked some “California related” tracks because of my forthcoming trip to west coast XD. Kaarlo Stauffer.

Bonnie “Prince” Billy – I See A Darkness

Selected By Fiacha Harrington. (You Tube Only)

Cocteau Twins & Harold Budd – Sea, Swallow Me

Selected by Ville Kilpeläinen. (You Tube only)

The Dukes of the Stratosphear – Pale and Precious

One of my favorite Beach Boys pastiches ever. Kaarlo Stauffer.


I can’t get enough of ‘Hit The Bongo’ by Tito Puente (from 1970) at the mo, and as one can’t buy this record for under 100€ I’m listening to it on a loop on YT in the hope I’ll get sick of it. Billy Brentford.

 Frank Zappa – Dog Breath

Selected by Kaarlo Stauffer

Elliott Smith – Between The Bars

Remembering Elliott Smith and Either/Or, which was released 20 years ago this past week. There is a new expanded edition of the album due in March. Fiacha Harrington.

KYUSS – Green Machine

Selected by Kaarlo Stauffer.


Impossibly great, this is so outstanding that the rest of popular music may seem pointless. Nick Triani

Pantera – Fucking Hostile

Pantera’s ‘Vulgar Display Of Power’ was released 25 years ago. Fiacha Harrington.

The Grateful Dead – Touch of Grey

The band’s only top forty single – and pretty great song! Kaarlo Stauffer.
