Mixtape Mondays | Acoustic Sessions vol.3

Monday, May 23, 2016 0 Comments A+ a-

This is a pretty self explanatory playlist and as it has been a pretty intense week, I thought it doubly appropriate: it is chilled and it doesn't require too much introduction.

I am - still and as you're probably well aware by now - in a pretty folky / acoustic phase and this is another collection of acoustic tracks I came across by some of my favourite bands and some new found artists. I guess the fun factor in this volume 3 mixtape is that because perhaps I got a bit nostalgic listening to We Are Scientists - after the amazing gig at KOKO - Spotify started suggesting some peculiar tracks. One thing led to another and suddenly I'd collated a series of songs I used to listen to over 10 years ago and somehow remind me of the time I lived in America very much.

Chris Cain and Keith Murray have such energy on stage, impossible not to love We Are Scientists live, acoustic or not

I am talking pretty much about the last 10 songs in this playlist: from Lifehouse to Jet, from Maroon 5 to The Cinematics. I know it is sounds a bit random, but hopefully you can also see the connection. And at least the acoustic aspect ties this all together (or one playlist maker would hope so...).

Back to this day and age, we've the likes of James Bay, The 1975 and a song I very much fell in love with when I listened to its acoustic version live at V Festival last year, Jess Glynne's My Love. Last but not least, if you can forgive the cheesiness, I've allowed myself a couple of guilty pleasures: Jason Mraz' I'm Yours and Katy Perry's The One That Got Away are also in this one.
