The Soundtrack To Your Weekend

5th September 2013 | Posted in Music

WELCOME BACK. We've missed you. It's been far too long since the last weekend, don't you think? We certainly do, this week day business is highly over rated.

Anyway, we digress- you'll be pleased to know that we've come up with the goods once again, and have provided you with a rather nicely put together playlist for you to have a listen too. This week we're all over some iconic Indie anthems- and whether you're covered in anchor and swallow tattoo's or not, these tracks are sure to get you in a good mood. So whether you're off out on Saturday night, or banging a roast chicken in the oven on Sunday (where was our invite, by the way?), take your pick of these tunes, and turn them right up. Arctic Monkeys-Fluorescent Adolescent If you have a nervous disposition about clowns, we'd advise avoiding this video. Just put it on and listen to it or something. Just don't sit and watch it, or you might not be able to sleep. These clowns are violent and dangerous. You have been warned. M83-Midnight City Right. This one's fairly new, but let's be honest it's bloody brilliant and made it onto the anthems list the minute it was released. Anyway. Made famous (and tainted if you ask us) by those lot from 'Made in Chelsea' (EURGH) using it on their quite frankly odd show, it's got everything. A catchy beat, and a heavy synth that's going to stick in your head, the lyrics aren't exactly hard to learn either. Cue the horrific sing along- it's ok, we're doing it too. The Libertines-Can't Stand Me Now Oh how we miss Pete Doherty, Carl Barat et al. If only they could get it together, the world would be such a better place. Wood chock smashing, guitar quivering, pure unadulterated Indie euphoria lies in this absolute icon of a track. We're feeling all sentimental now. This is getting too much... we need a moment. The Libertines-Time For Heroes WAHHHHHH. STOP IT! Nirvana-Smells Like Teen Spirit Nothing quite like getting over The Libertines than being reminded what a loss Curt Cobain was to the world. He left us with this though- possibly one of his most infamous songs with Nirvana. Time to get upbeat and let loose with this- if any of us had long hair, we'd be whipping it round like Willow Smith right now. Oasis-Supersonic 'I'm feeling Supersonic, give me Gin & Tonic, you could have it all but how much do you want it?' Bloody good question Mr Gallagher. This sums up our Saturday night, just sub that G&T for a Jaeger or two and we're in business...for some of us, anyway. The Killers-Mr Brightside This is one of those tunes that isn't just a song-it's a soundtrack. We've all got memories that go with it- ours range from the absurd to the down right unwritable. Either way, turn this up loud, you all know the words. No point in holding back now is there. Franz Ferdinand-Take me out Forgot about these boys didn't you? The lego haired chaps created this beauty back in 2004. Making you feel old? Good. Us too. Kasabian-L.S.F. Not many rock bands would perform in a womens prison. Thank god it's just a music video eh? You might start to notice a bit more of Kasabian member Sergio "Serge" Pizzorno, as he's just become the face of G-Star's latest campaign. Nice, that. The Undertones-Teenage Kicks One of the original leather jacket clad guitar thrashing bands, The Undertones are giving us a hefty chunk of nostalgia to this playlist. This track will never, ever get old. There's no school like the old school... Reef-Place Your Hands Sounds like this guys voice is going to snap, but hey, what a track. If you can't let go to this, then seriously, we don't know. Maybe stick to watching the Coronation Omnibus this weekend or something. Manic Street Preachers-A Design For Life One of the most underrated brands of all time? We think so. These guys deserve a lot of love. A LOT of love. The Klaxons-Golden Skans OOOOOOOOOOO, AAAAAAAAAAAAAA. Reckon if we'd have just written that you'd have recognised it? Worth a go, we reckon. Bloc Part-Banquet They may have gone off the boil a little recently, but you can't deny the classics. Feel good, easy, guitar strumming Indie track. Cheers. The Kooks-Naive Here's a big claim- but we reckon this is one of the most recognisable guitar rifts of the noughties. Anyway. Past that, it's a ruddy good song. Bombay Bicycle Club-Always Like This We've got alot of time for Bombay Bicycle Club. They're a fantastic example of how to do the whole geeky, 'i'm going to play my guitar around my chest' era of bands around at the moment, and they're the best at it by far. Uplifting, fun, and absolutely brilliant. That'd be this song in a nutshell. Cool. Arctic Monkeys-I Bet That You Look Good On The Dance Floor GOING OUT WITH A BANG. Or ten. There's no words for this song is there? It's just fantastic.

So, there you have it. A host of hand picked Indie anthems, perfect for whatever you've got planned this weekend. We're going to play them all in a loop in the office now and start getting excited about not having to do any work over the weekend. Cool.

Until next time. Be safe. BYE
