A Nelson playlist

We asked Nelson what they were listening to this week and this is what you said,

American band Grouplove appears on this week's Your Playlist.

It’s Thunder And It’s Lightning by We Were Promised Jet Packs

This song is a few years old now, but the old saying ‘an oldy but a goody’ fits well here. We Were Promised Jet Packs is a Scottish band that has been around from the early 2000s. It’s one of those seemingly simple songs but the more you listen to it the more it builds and you hear the driving drum beat and strong vocals.

Get Free by Major Lazer featuring Amber of the Dirty Projectors (various remixes)

Major Lazer is a DJ duo made up of Diplo and Switch who were introduced after working with M.I.A. This song also features vocals from Amber Coffman of US band the Dirty Projectors. Now, electronic music haters, suspend reality for a minute and check out this song. It may easily end up on repeat on your iPod in a matter of minutes.

Not my Name by The Ting Tings

There aren’t many musical duos left out there. Jack and Meg ended their run as the White Stripes and we all know what happened to Sonny and Cher. The Ting Tings are a British duo who make some of the catchiest, dance worthy tunes out there.

Think That You Might Be Wrong by Great Lake Swimmers

Goosebumps and chills filled The Royal last week when Great Lake Swimmers took the stage last week. This beautiful song was part of the line-up and is one of the beautiful ballads on their newest release New Wild Everywhere.

Naked Kids by Grouplove

Sand, sandals, skinny dipping and beaches could anything be more appropriate for a summer anthem? This catchy song by American band Grouplove will get your toes tapping and there is a chick in the band!

The Littlest Birds by The Be Good Tanyas

Get ready for this Sunday’s Be Good Tanyas’ concert with one of their classic songs which has appeared on shows like Weeds.

Girl by Beck

Okay, yes Beck is a weird guy. But you don’t have to agree with his religious views to know that the guy has major talent and this is a favourite Beck tune.

This is your playlist. We want to know what song you just can’t get out of your head this week. Is it a new song? Or maybe a classic that you think is due for a comeback? Email your song to vurb@nelsonstar.com
