Kaiser Chiefs and Current Favorite Playlists
I have gotten a lot of questions the past few weeks about the kinds of playlists I am using the most these days.
So, to answer your questions, this is what the playlists include currently. True to nature, I will be switching to other sounds soon, but for now, this is what they look like:
1) My Friend Dario by Vitalic
2) Come Mona Lisa by Mango
3) Dreamworld by Rilo Kiley
4) Bawitdaba by Kid Rock
5) Busy by K's Choice
6) Destroy Everything
You Touch by Ladytron
7) Angel in Night by Basshunter
8) Gone, Gone, Gone by Robert Plant and Allison Krauss
9) Black Burning Heart by Keane
10) Depeche Mode Remix
It's mostly the Kaiser Chiefs. Because they're great! I think of the Kaiser Chiefs as Oasis on vitamins and melatonin. Their sound is unequivocally indie while retaining a good measure of 'mellow' as well. If you have not checked out their 2008 album, Off With Their Heads, you are, indeed, missing out. It's one of the best albums of 2008. And I'm not just biased. I'm being as fair as my nature allows me to be. Beautiful sound. Wonderful depth!
However, I am shifting gears soon and I will most likely revisit Stereophonics for a couple of days. And Verdi's Requiem will be given some attention too. As will Debussy.
