Someone suggested I do a “last letter game” type of playlist today, and as I put it together I realized it could be the perfect way to honor UK music I’ve loved in the last 15 years. Sure, Australia’s Tame Impala and Canada’s Born Ruffians squeezed their way in, but their sounds fit nicely with the Brits, so that’s fine by me.
There’s also a lot of great dance music in there, which honors what The 2 Bears are doing, as well as some of my definite favorite bands of any genre, like The Heavy and The Kills. Somebody really needs to get word to both of those groups that a new album is imperative. Stat.
