Weekly Playlist 18: I Want Your Love

We start this week’s playlist with a new single from Bury St Edmunds’s finest – Gaffa Tape Sandy – it’s a sweet little track from the band from my hometown and I think it deserves some more attention.

LCD Soundsystem remain one of my favourite bands, and their recent album of tracks recorded as a band (rather than the normal studio versions, which are basically James Murphy alone) is a lot of fun – a reminder of how excellent they are live. The cover of Chic’s I Want Your Love is my highlight though, with Murphy and the band giving a nod to a band who have influenced them heavily.

In the jazz-heavy second half, I’d like to draw attention to Glitter Wolf by Allison Miller’s Boom Tic Boom – Allison Miller is an absolutely breathtaking drummer and the whole album (also called Glitter Wolf) foregrounds her immense talent without ever feeling like relying on her virtuosity to hold attention – the tunes are great.
