Being that Summer is pretty much here, and the inspo behind our Summer Collection is all things shipwrecked, we thought we’d put together our very own edition of Desert Island Discs. So here it is, a difinitive list of our most perfect tunes for summer, that we wouldn’t mind being marooned with… Leave a comment below to let us know what tunes would be at the top of your own Desert Island Discs playlist.
1. Kendrick Lemar – Untitled Unmastered
This unexpected release of demos from the messiah that is Kendrick, just feels like an all around treat.
2. Van Morrison – Astral Weeks
The first fully-fledge solo album by Morrisson, still sounds as hypnotic as when we first ever heard it.
3. Jay Z – The Black Album
So ok the retirement didn’t last long, but Jay Z’s so called ‘farewell album’ still kicks a punch.
4. Dum Dum Girls – Too True
Dreamy female vocals and guitar reverb make this the perfect girl power album for summer.
5. Grimes – Visions
We find Grimes’ weird original gonzo pop just totally intriguing and addictive.
6. Nirvana – MTV Unplugged in New York
Recorded only 4 months before Kobain’s death, this MTV live performance awkwardness and intimacy make it close to our hearts.
7. FKA Twigs – LP1
This masterclass in sexual angst sees FKA Twgs laid bare through personal lyrics, whilst still being undeniably catchy
8. Jamie xx – In Colour
With signature steel pan sounds, this nostalgic album is the perfect summer banger.
9. Action Bronson – Mr Wonderful
No-nonsense hip hop from Action Bronson.
10. Bob Marley – Legend
Full of universal soul and Jamaican rhythm, a true classic.
