This is the first #CLT of the new year, and it needs to be special. So here we go, 2014.
1. Air – MIDIval PunditZ
This is an old one, but one of my all-time favourites. The pioneers of the Indian fusion scene, Tapan Raj and Gaurav Raina have been banging it out for more than a decade.
2. Suck – Yuck
Other than their imaginatively titled tracks, Yuck have an easygoing yet distinctive style that hits you. Hard. Suck comes off their debut album titled, obviously, Yuck.
3. Little Drummer Boy – Pentatonix
I know it’s a little late to be posting Christmas carols, but this one is too awesome not to share. Pentatonix are a five-piece acapella band, and are one of my favourite cover artists on the YouTube. Their rendition of this Christmas classic will give you goosebumps. Guaranteed.
4. My Wish – Rascal Flatts
I’m not too much of a country music person, but this song was first played at a coming of age of sorts, for me. And it’s been special ever since. So, at the beginning of 2014, I’d like to wish all of you the very best, Rascal Flatts style.
5. Only Moment We Were Alone – Explosions In The Sky
EITS are a five-piece post rock band from Texas. Only Moment, ever since I first heard, has been my favourite track to play at that point in the party where the festivities are dying down and everyone’s just in the mood to sit around and be. Just be. Add a dimly lit room to that, and the world is perfect.
And that’s it for this edition of #CLT. Happy new year, everyone, and keep listening!
