Songs We Like - 9/12

Tom goes solo for another fruitful Songs We Like, so sit tight and enjoy as he traverses through genres as seamlessly as a seamstress. If that’s not enough, we’ll be sharing some of our writer’s top albums of 2017 in the coming weeks, so don’t say we don’t spoil you. 

 

Charli XCX – Out Of My Head (ft. Tove Lo and ALMA)

 

 

It’s no secret that we love Charli XCX over here at The 730 Review. Out Of My Head recruits Tove Lo and ALMA for our first taster from Charlis upcoming Pop2 mixtape, and it’s a perfect slice of pop fun. Boasting (albeit restrained) production from PC Music head honcho A.G. Cook and frequent collaborator SOPHIE, Out Of My Head drops the playful lyricism of Boys in favour of the classic toxic lover scenario. It’s catchy, and I unashamedly love it. -Tom

 

Wiley – Bar (ft. Scratchy & D Double E)

 

 

Wiley, Scratchy and D Double team up to spit bars over the abrasive Bar. Dripping with the ice cold eski aesthetic created and championed by the main man Wiley himself, Bar is a back to basics grime ensemble that sees the three artists exchange verses with a certain braggadocio reserved only for the grime scene. -Tom

 

Broken Social Scene – I Don’t Want To Grow Up

 

 

Broken Social Scene take on Tom Waits’ classic, filling out the gruff, muddy original with a clarity and instrumental padding missing from the original. Whilst that may seem like sacrilege to many Tom Waits fans, the result is a beautifully sad interpretation of an iconic musician in a novel and unique fashion. -Tom

 

Marcus Marr – High Times (Gerd Janson Discotheque Mix)

 

 

If there’s two things I love, it’s Gerd Janson and DFA Records. As you can imagine, High Times manages to tick all the right boxes for me: A gritty synth? Check. Swirling samples? Check. Rampant percussion? Check. Gerd Janson’s mix piles on the headfucking highs and the dirty lows to exhilarating effect. It’s an extended mix of Marcus Marr designed for the dancefloor, and if this doesn’t get you moving, what will? -Tom
