#MusicMonday playlist brought to you by @MonaFims

Our friend @MonaFims has this #MusicMonday’s recommendations.

We start this week with a track called “Pompeii” by a new British favorite band: “Bastille”. This song is taken from their debut album “Bad Blood” released back in February.

Next we have an American indie rock band: “Pomegranates” and their song “Create Your Own Reality”. We continue with yet another American; Brooklyn based “American Authors” and their song “Best Day Of My Life”.

The French group “Phoenix” just released a new album called “Bankrupt!”. The next song in our playlist is one of my favorite tracks from this new album called “Chloroform”.

The last song in our playlist is the dreamy song “Love divine” by the Swedish duo “W&I”.

If you have song suggestions for next week’s playlist, be sure to drop them in Mona’s Spotify Inbox.

Subscribe to the playlist and you will get a mix of twenty new Feel-Good tracks every Monday.

Our interview with Little Mix

Jesy, Perrie, Leigh-Anne and Jade came into our office recently and played four songs just for us. Afterwards we piled them into a room so they could tell us all about the music that they love, about the songs and artists that inspired them and, guess, what. They did.

What song reminds you of your childhood?

Jesy: Spice Girls’ ‘Spice Up Your Life’.

Leigh-Anne: I sang The Honeys ‘Finally Found’ a lot when I was younger, so that would be mine.

Perrie: I’d go for Eiffel 65’s ‘I’m Blue’ or Hanson’s ‘MMMbop’!

Jade: Mine would be ‘Baby Love’ by Diana Ross and the Supremes.

What record is your guaranteed, sure-fire party starter?

Leigh-Anne: Flo Rida’s ‘Wild Ones’ was my song of last year and I still bang it out all the time. I absolutely love it!

Perrie: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ ‘Thrift Shop’ gets me in the mood. But Fatman Scoop’s ‘Be Faithful’ sends everyone nuts.

Jade: ‘I Gotta Feeling’ by Black Eyed Peas is a bit obvious, but it always works!

Leigh-Anne: You’ve got to have Snoop and Pharrell’s ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’.

Jesy: Gwen Stefani and Eve’s ‘Let Me Blow Ya Mind’ is a brilliant party track.

Perrie: The Killers’ ‘Mr Brightside’ gets everyone dancing.

Jesy: No! I’d sit down if that came on – I hate that sort of music.

Leigh-Anne: There was that song we were always playing in the kitchen of the X-Factor house.

Perrie: Panic At The Disco, ‘I Write Sins Not Tragedies’.

Jesy: I wouldn’t have that!

Perrie: We’d have to have ‘Love On Top’ by Beyonce too.

What song would you play before you left the house to get you in the mood?

Jade: I’d go for ‘Dirrty’ by Christina Aguilera.

Perrie: Calvin Harris and Example’s ‘We’ll Be Coming Back’.

Jesy: Oh, for me it would have to be ‘Run It!’ by Chris Brown or ‘OMG’ by Usher.

All: Robyn S’ ‘Show Me Love’ is still an amazing song.

What’s your ultimate dancefloor track?

Jesy: I love that Cascade track, ‘Every Time We Touch’.

Leigh-Anne: Wynter Gordon’s ‘Dirty Talk’ is a huge tune!

Perrie: Oh yeah, I love that one!

Jesy: You can’t have a party without Run DMC’s ‘It’s Like That’.

Jade: Or ‘Flowers’ by Sweet Female Attitude – love that.

Does the perfect song exist?

Jesy: Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ – the words to that are just amazing.

Leigh-Anne: I wish that we’d done ‘No Scrubs’ or ‘Unpretty’, those were kind of perfect – but right now I’d say Bruno Mars’ ‘When I Was Your Man’. That is a perfect song.

Jade: ‘Lately’ by Stevie Wonder is brilliant – I’d nominate that.

After the party, what would bring you back to earth?

Leigh-Anne: I’d listen to all slow jams…

Jesy: Toni Braxton’s ‘Un-Break My Heart’!

Perrie: Dobie Gray’s ‘Drift Away’ is a great song – and we all love ‘Fast Car’ by Tracy Chapman.

Jesy: ‘End Of the Road’ by Boyz II Men.

Jade: Miguel’s ‘Adorn’ is perfect for going home if you’re going home with someone…

Leigh-Anne: So is Usher’s ‘Climax’!

What would you recover to the next day?

Leigh-Anne: I don’t like to stop the party!

Jade: ‘Jimmy Mack’ by Martha and the Vandellas. Oh, and ‘Is This Love’ by Bob Marley.

Jesy: ‘Tonight’ by John Legend, that’s a great record and ‘You Remind Me’ by Usher.

Leigh-Anne: I’d have to have some Chris Brown in there too – probably ‘4 Years Old’, or ‘Stuck On Stupid’.

Finally – crucially – what’s your favourite noise?

Perrie: I love rain on a window and the pop from a brand new jar.

Jade: For me it’s crunchy leaves.

Jesy: I love thunder – as long as I’m inside.

Leigh-Anne: I love a saxophone. It’s really sexy!

Vinn billetter til Black Debbath

27.april spiller Black Debbath, El Caco og Brut Boogaloo på Rockefeller (18 år, leg).og du kan vinne billett til deg selv og en venn!

Black Debbath har levert tung, tung politisk rock siden 1999. De har gjennom sin innsats som en overordnet femte statsmakt i Norge satt så vel den politiske som musikalske dagsorden siden den gang. Fra de påpekte at det var Problemer innad i Høyre på sin første singel har de gang på gang påvist feil og mangler i det norske samfunn med sin blytunge riffsynsing og akademiske stoner-rock.

Akademisk stoner-rock (2013) er bandets foreløpig nyeste utgivelse. Her vender bandet tilbake til røttene med råtøff riffsynsing, men med nesa enda mer rettet mot akademia og folkeopplysning enn tidligere. Låta Nei til runkesti på Ekeberg (skulpturpark-sangen) ble med sitt sterke engasjement mot Christian Ringnes’ ulekre planer i Ekebergåsen på kort tid en av bandets aller mest populære sanger.

Svar på følgende spørsmål:

“Black Debbath slår et slag for renere kjøkken i de norske hjem. Hvilket kjøkken “redskap” ønsker de at vi skal bytte oftere?”

The Nordic Playlist

Nordic Playlist, en fellesnordisk spilleliste som nå er under utvikling, er et nytt tiltak som lanseres i fellesskap av NOMEX – en sammenslutning av Nordens fem musikkeksportkontor. Målet for spillelisten er å gi et øyeblikksbilde av hva som bobler på musikkfronten til enhver tid i alle fem nordiske land.

Nordic Playlist går nå inn i en lukket beta-test periode og man er på utkikk etter musikkinteresserte som kan gi verdifull feedback på tjenesten mens den nå er under utvikling. Spotify er med på laget og vil streame Nordic Playlist når den er ferdig utviklet senere i år. I tiden fram til Nordic Playlist er klar til lanseres, oppfordrer vi alle som brenner for nordisk musikk til å bli med som beta-tester ved å signe opp på:
