Mixtape Mondays | Randoms vol.2

Monday, November 07, 2016 0 Comments A+ a-

I will keep this short and sweet. As with Randoms vol.1 published back in February, this is a mixtape that is held together simply by the fact these are artists I didn't know much about, but came across either via Discover Weekly, Sofar Sounds, supporting gigs or friends suggestions. Since then, I decided to "save them" so I could listen to more songs later on... And here we are, eight months later.

As with Seafret, Haunt The Woods is a name which really encapsulate the sounds of these guys 

I had the pleasure to see the first three artists in this playlist live and I was mesmerised by their music. After Sofar Sounds London with Cornwall lads from Haunt The Woods a few weeks ago, I could not stop singing to the lyrics of Beautiful Catastrophe. Do keep an eye out for future London gigs. Same can be said of Irish singer-songwriter Eve Belle, who supported Dan Owen back in September at St. Pancras Old Church. She's got some beautifully sad songs, but I won't forget her version of Dire Straits' Romeo and Juliet, she's made it her own and it was breathtaking.

Last week I was surprised to know Matt Maltese was supporting Tom Chaplin at the Islington Assembly Hall gig of The Wave tour. I only then remembered I had come across Even If It's a Lie before. And if I liked the song listening to it on Spotify, I absolutely fell in love with it after hearing Matt's vocals and piano live. If you're free on the coming 14th you should check him out at the Servant Jazz Quarters (one of our favourite little London venues!).

That's it folks, have a lovely weekend and I will see you next Monday with another mixtape!
