This week Corene’s favourite is
Taylor Swift – Blank Space
Taylor Swift in the Blank Space video is the woman we’ve been waiting for. It is a track recorded for her fifth studio album, 1989. Described as an electropop song with influences of minimal pop. Many critics compared it to the works of fellow singer-songwriter Lorde. It makes fun of Swift’s recent exposure in the media about her dating life, portraying “an overly attached man-eater who dates for songwriting material” as herself.
Sam Smith – I’m Not The Only One (Grant Nelson Remix)
UK DJ Grant Nelson takes a swing at Sam Smith‘s “I’m Not The Only One” because…everyone enjoys Sam Smith remixes. I mean, how many are we up to at this point? Grant Nelson did something different with the track and kept it fresh on our minds and close to our hearts, right where it needs to be.
Frank Turner – Wanderlust
Frank Turner is an English folk/punk singer-songwriter from Meonstoke, Hampshire. Initially the vocalist of post-hardcore band Million Dead, Turner embarked upon a primarily acoustic-based solo career following the band’s split in 2005. Both in the studio and during live performances, Turner is accompanied by his backing band, The Sleeping Souls. Wanderlust comes from the duluxe version of England Keep My Bones album, released in 2011.
Kirko Bangz – Rich ft. August Alsina
Words like “materialism” and “greed” generally carry a negative connotation, but is it so wrong to dream of a better life? Rising rap star Kirko Bangz, for example, doesn’t ask for much—just a house on the top of a hill, a yacht, some diamond chains, a few stacks of hundreds to make it rain at his local strip club, and so on. On new single released in June 2014 Rich, Jevon Hill,Stanley Green and Rock City‘s luxurious, keyboard-led boardwork sets the mood as Kirko shares his fantasies of high-rollerdom.
Tool – Parabola
“Parabola” is a song by the American rock band Tool, the song was released as the second single from their third studio album Lateralus. It was released in 2002 as a promo only, however, on December 20, 2005, the single was re-released, which includes the song and a DVD containing the music video and an optional “dual” audio commentary on the video by Jello Biafra of Dead Kennedys fame.
