In the lead up to the release of their wildly-anticipated sophomore album Visions of a Life, Ellie from indie-rock collective Wolf Alice has shared a lush little playlist to celebrate bed and the moments that lead to dreams. It’s a real assortment of songs as she’s named local legends King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard to Sharon Van Etten and drops in an unexpected one from Queens of the Stone Age.
Visions of a Life is out Friday, 29 September but you can get across a few sneak peaks including ‘Heavenward‘, the sweet garage anthem ‘Beautifully Unconventional‘, intricate crush masterpiece ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses‘ and fierce gut-puncher ‘Yuk Foo‘.
Sharon Van Etten – ‘One Day’
My brother showed me this song and it’s the first song I sought to learn how to play for a really long while.
Dean Blunt – ‘Imperial Gold’
You never know what dean blunts gonna come out with, I love this song.
Moldy Peaches – ‘Nothing Came Out’
One of the first songs I tried to cover with my mates at school.
Brian Jonestown Massacre – ‘David Bowie I Love You’
Love the riff in this song. Dig is one of my favourite movies.
Willis Earl Beal – ‘Evenings Kiss’
Love the simplicity of this tune and the focus on the lyrics.
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – ‘Sense’
Love the production on this tune and the variety of songs this band come out with.
Micheal Kiwinuka – ‘Cold Little Heart’
Discovered this through the program Big Little Lies.
Sufjan Stevens – ‘Death with Dignity’
Quite hard to listen to this song without crying if you’re feeling a little vulnerable.
Slaves – ‘Steer Clear’
Love this tune from Slaves new album featuring Baxter Dury.
Queens of the Stone Age – ‘Lightning Song’
Nice instrumental from another normally quite heavy rock band.
