Scottish indie-folk five-piece ArdentJohn are firm favourites here at Moon & Back – just press play on their song Where All Paths Lead on the right to see why. We explore the curious playlist that’s (musically) keeping them up and night and helping to hone their own unique blend of sound.
Richard Hawley– Remorse Code Elbow – Scattered Black and Whites TV On The Radio– Family Tree Devotchka– Dearly Departed Bob Dylan– Let Me Die In My Footsteps Beach House – Used To Be Camera Obscura– Away With Murder Sigur Ros– Gong Flaming Lips– Waitin’ for a Superman Sufjan Stevens– Concerning the UFO Sighting near Highland, Illinois
Many thanks to ArdentJohn for taking the time out to compile this playlist and giving us an insight into their sound. We highly recommend their debut On The Wire which can be purchased here
Not since last month has Frank Turner’s name graced the pages of Moon & Back Music, but now he’s back with more musical recommendations.
It’s already been established that Mr. Turner isn’t a fan of typical ‘chart music’. In our first interview he actually talked about having a fight with Fearne Cotton and that Reggie bloke from the radio, after listening to their chart show. In this playlist Frank has highlighted some of his favorite artists and tracks and there’s a good mix of styles here. Have his recommendations let us down before? Thought not.
Loudon Wainwright III – Motel Blues Tim Barry – On & On Fairport Convention– Matty Groves Bruce Springsteen – Born To Run The Weakerthans – Tournament Of Hearts Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – There She Goes My Beautiful World Bob Dylan – North Country Girl Billy Bragg – Levi Stubbs’ Tears The Hold Steady – Yeah Sapphire Frightened Rabbit – Heads Roll Off
Thanks to Jacob from The Drums for providing the first of many pretty awesomely kick ass playlists. You can check out our interview with The Drumsfrom last week, or go ahead and just buy their album on the strength of our recommendation, here!
