Now Playing – the sounds of the week at OTR HQ
Tunes for your listening pleasure from the John Steel Singers, Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock, Grimes, Helen Hollins Singers and Lana Del Rey
John Steel Singers “Happy Before” (Full Time Hobby)
Sunnyside up pop with a giddy glint in the eye from the Brisbane five-piece
Lana Del Rey “Ultraviolence” (Polydor)
Provocative pop with rasping reverb and blues-fused ennui
Helen Hollins Singers “Consolation” (Soundcloud)
Inspired Nicolas Jaar rerub of the 1980s’ soul-gospel group
Grimes “Go” 94AD)
Stadium-sized bleeps and bass from Grimes on a jam originally intended for Rihanna. Ri-Ri’s loss, tbh.
Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock “It Takes Two” (Profile)
The sound of the summer block parties busting out all over the city in our vivid imagination.
