---------------------------------------


Anamanaguchi - Endless Fantasy

Great little chiptune song with really nice production, I found them through the Scott Pilgrim game soundtrack.  Good stuff.


Joji - Thom

This was my introduction to Lofi type music, I knew of the dude through Filthy Frank.  The samples at the front end are top notch.


Childish Gambino - Freaks and Geeks

The first Gambino song I ever heard, this was the song that got me into Gambino and other artists like Chance and Danny Brown.  It's quite punny as well as being included in a fantastic EP.


Biffy Clyro - Many of Horror

A song I heard a bunch when I was younger, full to the brim with guitar towards the second half as well as the lead singers thick scottish accent.  Makes me feel a bit patriotic haha.


Simon & Garfunkel - Sound of Silence

Whenever you hear someone talk about 'real music' they usually mean something like this, and I can't deny that it's great.  Great harmonies as well as being lyrically interesting.


James Blake - Sound of Silence

Heavy-on-production cover which never fails to impress me.  His other stuff is great as well, but I'll write about that in another months list probably.


Childish Gambino - Zealots of Stockholm

Another really heavily produced track from one of my favourite albums ever.  Maybe I just like the bass hitting my ears.


Porter Robinson / Madeon - Shelter

Great samples throughout the track, great melody, great song in whole.  This won't be the last time I mention Madeon.


The Clash - Rock the Casbah

Classic song, really clever lyrics with references to different middle-eastern building and such.  Catchy chorus as well.


Joe Hisaishi - One Summer's Day

This song takes me back to one of my favourite films ever, totally transports me to a different time in my life. Brilliant film. Beautiful song. 


Daft Punk - Aerodynamic

On of my favourite instrumental tracks from Daft Punk, I love the almost impossible guitar riffs at the front of the track and the hypnotic synths towards the end. 


Frank Ocean - Pyramids

I used to listen to the song while cycling, because I could cycle into the centre of town in about the same length as the track, it made it feel like I was in a music video or something.


Ninja Sex Party - 6969

Great comedic song, tons of attitude and personality. Danny Sexbang is my idol.
