, What your favourite artists are listening to…

I love reading those pieces in magazines where artists are asked what’s on their stereo / iPod etc. I remember Buck 65 recommending John Fahey for example. So with that in mind, here’s a list of recommendations from artists I’ve interviewed lately. Hope you find something of interest. I’m digging Holy Fuck-recommended The Oscillations.

Cadence Weapon

Clipse/ Re-Up Gang – We Got It For Cheap Mixtape Vol. 3
Trim – Soul Food Vol. 2– (Grime rapper from London)

Foals – Edwin

“There’s a guy from Bristol called Peverelist who makes the most amazing rhythmically complex music that has a dancefloor edge but just blows my head off. There’s a new Charlottefield record out and another band called Dananananaykroyd. A weird name, a fucking weird name [Note: it took me a long long time to Google those fuckers]. It’s kind of like Fugazi and Minutemen.”

MGMT

A Wizard, a True Star by Todd Rundgren, Pacific Ocean Blue by Denis Wilson, Aladdin Sane by David Bowie , Bob Dylan’s Desire as well as two soundtracks from Australian psychedelic surf movies, one called Morning of the Earth, another called Crystal Voyager.”

Holy Fuck – Graham

“A band called The Oscillations. Our drummer Matt is a big Jazz fan so he got me onto some Max Roach, Thelonious Monk. An awesome Ennio Morricone compilation.”

Dan le Sac / Scroobius Pip

Pip – M.I.A – Paper Planes
Dan – Joanna Newsom – Ys

Adele

Vampire Weekend, Amy Winehouse, Whitney Huston.
