Playlist: Remy's Best of International Independent Music - Issue #5

Kraków Loves Adana Beautiful Lie
Kraków Loves Adana


Info: Every few weeks Remy brings you the best of independent international music that is floating the musical boat. In our fifth issue for 2017 we have a another genre-spanning compilation across ten tracks, but this week with a bonus acoustic version of 'Bandit Queen', the title track of Hamilton, Ontario act Sarah Beatty's latest album.

The first track on our playlist from Hamburg, Germany's Kraków Loves Adana, 'Beautiful Lie', is killing me though, it's too perfect, at the end of every year you hope for a track or album in the new year that will give you the feels you had on your favourite releases from the previous one. This song is exactly where I'm at with music in general right now, it's the type of sound that is grooving my soul, and her album is due for release very soon, so more on that when appropriate!

We have our second track for 2017 from L.A.'s wondrous Todavia, an effortless giver of dream-pop that fans of Beach House will melt upon listening to. I was also made a 110% fan of Buckinghamshire indie-pop gem-polishers The Boy Least Likely To, and their latest single, 'Follow Your Heart Somewhere'.

For fans of Todd Terje we have Montréal act Le Coleur, funky Gallic dancefloor disco that is wonderfully executed. And then we have I Got That (Part 1) by French act Hervé, a classic house and dance number that brings to mind Groove Armada and Paul Kalkbrenner, juicy. Adding to this tremendous mix of tracks from around the globe are Indianapolis' Future Lover with his track 'Dead Soul Dagger', Bahrain's SHEIKH with 'Fonda', FEELS from Helsinki, and their track 'Gates' (FFO Bat for Lashes / Air), and finally, but not leastly, 'Dwaal' by Portuguese indie act Toulouse.
