Mixtape for week 17, 2013

Mixtape for week 17, 2013

Here’s my top ten for this week:

  1. The Strokes – Reptilia

Rock. Okay, so it’s old and overplayed, but it’s difficult to deny the genius of this song.

  1. Clogs – A Hobson’s Choice

Acoustic. A nice acoustic song, with catchy, rhythmic guitar backing.

  1. Ólafur Arnalds – Sudden Throw

Classical/Instrumental. A relaxing tune, great to work to.

  1. Grizzly Bear – Sleeping Ute

Slow rock. A soulful song.

  1. Ratatat – Tropicana

Electronic/Instrumental. A catchy instrumental tune.

  1. Major Lazer – Bubble Butt [feat. Bruno Mars, Tyga & Mystic]

Dance. I normally don’t like Bruno Mars, but this song is too catchy to resist.

  1. Lil Wayne – Rich As Fuck

Hip-hop. Not for the faint of heart.

  1. Daft Punk – The Grid (Remixed By The Crystal Method)

Electronic. I wasn’t a fan of the new Daft Punk single this week, so instead, here’s something a bit more my thing.

  1. Arcade Fire – The Suburbs

Slow rock. A very addictive song. I don’t like all of Arcade Fire’s songs, but the occasional one can strike me the right way.

  1. Håkan Hellström – Det kommer aldrig va över för mig

Slow rock. A Swedish song to round out the week. For me, at least, understanding the lyrics comes second to a catchy tune.

Bytarend is fast, fun fantasy that'll have you on the edge of your seat. Hard Vacuum is hard-talking, violent science fiction and my tribute to 80s action movies.
