Top 25 - 17 July, 2016


1. James Vincent McMorrow - Rising Water

2. The Naked and Famous - Higher

3. Grouplove - Welcome To Your Life (NEW)

Jo's Pick of the Week: I have a couple of bands in my favourites list that sit in a strange little section of love. They aren't bands that I know everything about, they aren't bands that I know every song in the back catalogue and they aren't bands that I usually name when people ask "who do you love?" - but they're important. Actually, they're really important, because, quite simply, they make me happy. While I don't know all of their songs, every song I hear makes me smile and whenever I get the chance to see them live I most definitely will, because I know a couple of hours of dancing and smiling is not to be missed. One of those bands is Grouplove, who never fail to impress me with their brand of simple pop rock and 'Welcome To Your Life' is no exception. Beats to make me sway and words to sing along to, it's not going to change the world, but it is going to make me smile whenever it pops up on my playlist or in my social media feed, which needs more smiles some days and maybe that's enough to change the world some days anyway.

4. Kid Runner - Give Me Something To Love

5. The Lumineers - Cleopatra (NEW)

Matt's Pick of the Week: I haven't taken the time to listen to all of The Lumineers' latest album Cleopatra, but after the release of the title track I'm going to have to make that time. 'Cleopatra' is the kind of storytelling goodness I can't help falling for. It takes a look back on a life that saw highs and lows, with a healthy amount of love lost and just enough regret mixed in to start the slow breaking of your heart. And if the song's not enough to get at you, the beautifully shot and perfectly matched video surely will. "But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life. And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time." This ain't your 'Ho Hey' Lumineers, but this is excellent storytelling and a must listen for those folky-Americana fans. Now to go and listen to that new album... (Matt Bond)
