Yes, it’s that’s time of the week again, it’s time for a 30 track Deezer playlist to improve your week. Last week’s playlist featured a ton of new music, so I decided to be a little more retro this week.
This week’s playlist features a track off the previous New Academics album, one of my favorite songs by The White Stripes, a track off the first album released by The Black Keys (in 2002 I might add), a track off ZZ Top’s 2012 album La Futura, a track off the first Cage The Elephant album, a classic track by The Strokes (from 2001), my favorite track off Green Day’s Insomniac album, some Kasabian, some Flogging Molly and my favourite track by The Hives (who toured South Africa in 2013).
There’s also some Eagles of Death Metal (who were in SA in 2012), my favourite track by Bloc Party (who were also here in 2012), my favourite song by Pennywise, some classic rock courtesy of The Stooges (featuring Iggy Pop on lead vocals), my favourite track on the Foo Fighters’ Sonic Highways album, some Wolfmother (who played at Oppikoppi in 2014), a classic track off AC/DC’s The Razor’s Edge, a song off Queens of the Stone Age’s debut album, one of my favourite songs by Taxi Violence (off their album which was released in 2009) and one of my favourite tracks off Fokofpolisiekar’s Swanesang album (which is having its 10th birthday this year).
There’s also an amazing track by Cape Town rockers Dead Lucky, a track off the new Hellcats EP, a track of William Welfare’s Shunt album (from 2014), a track off the second album released by The Black Cat Bones, some Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, a funky track by The Vines, something classic from The Offspring, something classic from L7, a track from the late and great Jet and a lesser known but rocking track by The Subways.
