Just in time for Thanksgiving we’re bringing you Volume 5 of our RCRD LBL Essentials Playlists. With new songs from The Antlers, Lindstrom, The Wombats and others, RCRD LBL Essesntials Volume 5 will have you rocking out all weekend long.
First up is Brooklyn-based indie rock group The Antlers doing a spacey cover of The xx‘s song “VCR.” The track starts out all atmospherics, but when the melody kicks in after a minute or so, it blooms up into an amazingly lush electro/chamber-pop rendition of what was originally a very spare and dark song.
Next, Swedish space-disco wizard Lindstrom serves up a tasty slice funky electro with his new single “Deja Vu.” On the track we get to hear the man himself singing vocals, something he rarely does. His rapid fire disco diva performance is pretty impressive!
We’ve got UK garage rockers The Wombats turning in an equal parts gritty and catchy performance on “IOU.” The song is a new single that warns of getting into a relationship with someone that has a lot of emotional “baggage.” With it’s chugging guitars a soaring chorus however, getting into a damaging relationship has never sounds so fun.
Rounding things out we’ve got Danish electro quartet ”When Saints Go Machine” delivering an smooth remix of Planningtorock‘s hard hitting party track “Living It Out.” Jonsi brings some ambient electronica , and rising pop star Lissy Trullie‘s song “Madeline” is a nice builder of a ballad.
