Loved our Tenth Anniversary Issue? We’re enlisting our favourite artists to curate playlists just for you.
NYC twosome Beau have become firm Wonderland favourites since their shoot with Ryan McGinley for our Tenth Anniversary Issue. The bright young things talked to Eve Barlow about their artistic struggle in the city and how Radiohead changed their lives (we’ve all been there). Today Beau are sharing nuggets of their wise musical souls in a playlist packed with everything you need to listen to – whatever feelings you’re feeling. Have a journey into Beau’s dreamy-world and find out what inspired their choices below. Enjoy!
Solange – « Some Things Never Seem To Fucking Work » ft. Devon Hynes
A beautiful testament to change and love. We love the way Solange sings this tune, determined and sexy. Terrible records is also a favorite.
Lou Reed – « Take a Walk On the Wild Side » (Isaac Delusion cover)
It’s really hard to do a good cover AND remix to such a classic. These guys definitely achieved that and we respect them for their creativity.
Freddie Stevenson – « Heart Shaped Stone »
It’s heart warming hearing a man sing about being homesick. He has a beautiful voice and the lyrics remind us of home.
Dwellyn Conway – « Falling In The Rain »
This song, raw and pure, evokes feelings of nostalgia and lost love, or love found. The raw vocals and simple arrangement always hit home.
Animal Eyes – « Bender »
This is an awesome band, where every instrument shines but also works effortlessly well together. This song is a lot of fun, whimsical laced with great melody.
Lael Neale – « Still Life »
Our friend showed us this song when he was working on a video for her. We were amazed. This song brings a true feeling to you when you listen to it. Not sure whether to feel sad or hopeful in the lyrics, her voice is that of a siren.
The Morning Benders- « Excuses »
Adventurous and alluring, like a walk with a romantic marching band through a forest of clouds. This song brings Feelings of ecstasy and deep breaths.
Kurt Vile – « Never Run Away »
Kurt Vile is a favorite of ours. This song is whimsical and sweet with psychedelic touch. This song reminds us of driving through the west coast on very sunny and relaxing day.
Gold Star – « Dark Days »
This song has a melody that needs to be heard . It’s a kind of aching melody that once is inside of you, you can’t let it go. Love the voice of the man who sings this with purity and truth.
YOUWHO – « Score Album : Tasting Menu »
This song takes us into a wondrous dream land of emotion. Formless and free, there is a sweet sentiment underneath it all. True artists.
Rich Bouquet – « Sensitive Breeding »
This is the kind of mix and instrumental we want to listen to when walking home at night to our apartments after a long day of work. It’s all over the place yet balanced and has some pretty tones and guitar that keep it sane.
