The June Playlist 

Vol. 3: Not All Heroes Wear Capes

_______

THIS week has been a sobering and shocking one…

Image may contain: 4 people, people standing

IN THIS PHOTO: Everything Everything

for the country as a whole. That is a sentence I am saying a lot but it does not detract from the horror and carnage that was witnessed at Grenfell. The tensions and protests continue and, once more, a lot of us are in need of something soothing and uplifting. Music is always there so, not that we should ever forget the tragedy in London, it is a perfect week to embrace the best new tracks.

Queens of the Stone Age have introduced an absolute banger in The Way You Used to Do – the first single from their upcoming album, Villains. Arcade Fire, Wolf Alice and The Horrors have brought out new material – as has Dizzee Rascal and Everything Everything.

It is another incredible week for music which sees huge albums from Royal Blood and Lorde come forth – I take a track from each album. Also, there is a raft of new singles and videos to get your ears around.

Sit back, reflect and investigate a stocked and full Playlist that is designed to comfort the mind, compel the heart and motivate the body.

Such a rich collection of songs with some truly amazing moments – nothing to do with me but the artists that make it happen. It is a riotous blend of styles and genres from some of music’s very best. I hope this continues through June because music is really inspiring people right now. Against some dark days and tough times; we are divided but together at the same time. My hope is the coming days and weeks will be easier for everyone and this great country can find the peace and stability it needs right now.
