R*E*P*E*A*T Play List
Curated by Cambridge based writer and musician
See previous playlists here
Them Changes - Thundercat
I remember finding Thundercat a couple of years back, I was flicking
through live coverage from
Glastonbury when he appeared. Ive been obsessed ever since. Them
Changes isnt his most
creative bass performance but vocally it is his best work and a good
introduction to his music.
One More Day Wont Hurt - Slaves
This is Slaves at their most ferocious, Ive had it on loop since
it came out. I cant listen to it without screaming along, Ive
had some funny looks on the bus as a result
Down The Sink - King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard
Its impossible to pin point a good starting point with King Gizzard.
With 14 albums released since
2012, five of which were all released in 2017 alone, its easy
to get overwhelmed. Especially when theyve reinvented themselves
so many times, most recently as a thrash metal band on Organ
Farmer. Down The Sink is bouncy psychedelic song that
Ive always liked the lead hook of as
well as representing the sound their most known for, so thats
why this song is the one Ive chosen but I couldve easily
put in a song from every album.
The Pot - Tool
Im late to the party with Tool, having only been added to Spotify
at the end of July Id not properly checked them out until now.
Oh my god they are amazing though. The Pot has everything
that makes Tool so good in it. Justin Chancellors bass riffs lock
in perfectly with Danny Careys
drumming and the percussive guitar playing in the middle of the song
is just awesome. Im officially
one of those pretentious Tool fans.
The Next Episode - Dr Dre ft Snoop Dogg
Its a cliché choice and I could have chosen any number
of songs from Public Enemy, Kendrick
Lamar or Skepta or any other artist from the spectrum of Hip Hop sub
genres, but this song is just perfect. The 808 beats, Snoop Doggs
smooth rhymes and that David McCallum sample all mixed
together make the perfect G-Funk song and encapsulates everything I
love about Hip Hop.

Inside Outside Love - Sunlight For Honey
Sunlight For Honey are one of the most abstract bands in the Cambridge
scene at the moment,
noisy, arty and sensitive all at once, they truly are unique and Inside
Outside Love is killer song. I would say they were for fans of [insert
big band here] but they truly are original and you just have to check
them out for yourself.
Vibetech - Marmozets
Not a new song and not representative of Marmozets current style
but this song is a riot from start to finish, Id love to create
music like this but I honestly wouldnt know where to start with
creating such pandemonium.
Toxic - Kulk
Another killer local band, Kulk are noisier and heavier than anything
else in East-Anglia and exactly the kind of punch in the face I needed
after seeing so many cut and paste indie bands. Kulk have destroyed
pretty much every venue in the surrounding area and if you somehow havent
noticed them, check them out now. Their recordings are great but live
is where they really bring the pain. For fans of Marmozets (early work),
Nirvana (Bleach era) and Pigs7x
Wolf Totem - The Hu
Heres a weird one, Mongolian throat singing combined with metal.
This is a new discovery for me and Im not entirely sure what I
think of it yet, but it was too unique not to put it in this playlist.
I Hate You - Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes
This song nicely sums up my feelings towards Boris Johnson
Generator - Turnstile
I was late to the party with Turnstile for some unknown reason but they
are easily one of my
favourite bands currently. Ive always had a soft spot for American
hardcore and Turnstile do a
fantastic job of blending crushing riffs with bright vocal melodies
and thrashy guitar solos. Whats not to like?
Bong Thrower - Belzebong
No points for guessing what this band like to do in their spare time.
Belzebong are one of the
standout bands from the recent Stoner/Doom explosion. Where many bands
of this genre lean
towards rougher recordings, Belzebong have achieved the sludgy heaviness
of their counterparts while also maintaining a crisp recording quality.
