Mixtape Mondays | Acoustic Sessions vol.4

Monday, October 10, 2016 0 Comments A+ a-

It's been May since the last acoustic sessions playlist! Jeez time does fly over here it seems. This only means I've enough to share another great compilation. 

There is something about stripped down versions I simply cannot get enough of, so I will cut it down to what in matters. In this week's mixtape we have a couple from James Bay as I had forgotten how great he is live, but thankfully T in The Park helped reminding me of it. There are also two by Franz Ferdinand, because I am going through a very nostalgic phase, so thought it appropriate.

Twin Atlantic released their 4th album GLA last month. Any thoughts?  

We've also Twin Atlantic and Paolo Nutini (I could not leave out some Scottish flavour, of course), Vance Joy (genuinely considering going to Argentina in March next year to see him live at Lollapalooza, that's probably as extreme a trip for a gig I've ever planned, just as a fun fact for you), The 1975 (every time they do an acoustic version I end up loving it more than the original) and Seafret (always! And it yes, they've managed to strip it down even more, what a beautiful version of Wildfire). These just to name a few...

On the female front we've some incredible vocals from Birdy (Wings is just a classic, I could not leave it out), Russian Red (with a cheeky take on Fuerteventura), Foxes (this version of Clarity could have been in our Piano Tapes mixtape and it gives me goosebumps) and some new to this blog names, such as Swiss/German duo BOY and Canadian born musician LIGHTS. My little dose of old school comes in the form of Lily Allen, Alanis Morissette and Adele because it felt right to do so...

Happy Monday! :)
