Playlist: Remy's Best of International Playlist - Issue #009

DAUNT Unbearable Light

Info: The latest international independent Playlist begins with the wonderful downtempo and tastefully uncomplicated sounds of London solo act DAUNT on latest single, 'Unbearable Light', a solid intro to this fortnight's best tracks from around the globe. Although it was released on their 2016 EP, Oakland, California pair The Saxophones have just released their first video (below) for track 'New Tradition', a beautiful contemporary piece of blues-jazz which doffs it's cap to The Walkmen. 

A post-punk slash new wave piece of gorgeousness arrives via Rouen, and French four-piece MNNQNS, and their (also 2016) track 'Next Time I Try', the group also just released a video for the single last week, off their Capital EP. 

A most welcome SoundCloud discovery comes courtesy of Gothenburg's Baula and their dream-pop track 'Just Like Yesterday', a Swedish-Icelandic duo who have just started out. Again from London, we have Secret Cameras, and the lead track, 'It Doesn't Matter', from their scorching debut self-titled EP, it's a doozy. Other acts to feature on the blog recently are Melbourne, Australia's immense and then some Oh Pep!, here we've featured track 'Crazy Feels', and a big favourite of ours, Ontario, Canada's Billy Moon, with 'I Wanna Know'.

The Saxophones - New Tradition

Glasgow's The Calm Fiasco deliver a lovely slice of throwback punk and contemporary indie-rock on their single 'Sorry I'm Late Again', INXS meet Roxy Music on Marlon Brando Island's, 'A Troubled Past', is there something special happening in the English capital right now I wonder? Finally we have Helsinki's Anni, and her no frills Scandi-pop single, 'Tomorrow'. For playlists that are usually dominated by US and Canadian acts, it's both refreshing and interesting to have half of the acts on this list residing on the other side of the Irish Sea, and four from London, time to pay a bit more attention to what is happening there I reckon.
