This Friday, I’ve decided to post three of my favourite songs – a quirky mix with unexpected instrumentals, or in the case of Manu Chao, unexpected sounds (radio clips? a goat?)
One Molotov Jukebox- I Need It. I discovered these guys at a festival in Shoreditch a few years ago, under a bridge….fun times. Anyway, the lead, Natalie Tena, you may recognise from Game of Thrones as Osha or Harry Potter, in which she played Tonks. I like her accordion.
Two Manu Chao – Me Gustas Tu. This is the soundtrack to my year in China.
Three Gangstagrass – I’m Gonna Put You Down . Well, you weren’t expecting banjo/bluegrass with hip hop, were you? (Also, they sing the title song for Justified, one of the most underrated but thoroughly enjoyable TV shows ever, starring the delectable, drawling slice of hotness that is Timothy Olyphant but with some of the best written characters I’ve seen in a while)
