Here’s a few tunes I’ve enjoyed recently that make up a marathon playlist,nice and gentle for the long slow runs so nothing too aggressive!
Sufjan Stevens song Chicago,wonderfully mellow but builds to a lovely finish (unlike my marathon)http://youtu.be/c_-cUdmdWgUNext up fans of The National will know of El Vy this is again further evidence those gents are just a deep pool of musical pop perfection,their that good you don’t want to tell anyone,their gigs sell out in seconds so the secret is out!http://youtu.be/LUAOwceIzRMThe wonderfully groomed Kurt Vile ,Pretty Pimpin Just like this country groove perfect for an early run out http://youtu.be/659pppwniXA
Slightly different genre up now,love this video .Dirty Vegas /Days go by I like the hypnotic beat and melodies and as I said love the video!!http://youtu.be/QMfGqRUyrWw
Balthazar have been around little while ,a Belgium band that are really worth a look,some great tunes…this one is off the new album thin walls http://youtu.be/5WG9ZcH-RQE
