Our occasional series in which we ask our musical chums to share the contents of their soul, well OK, their I-pod, returns.  This time around the fabulous Sarah aka The Good Natured reveals exactly what’s been tickling her ear drums of late.  She’s also very kindly given us a free download (see above) to give away, which is utterly marvellous.


CrystallisedThe XX


The Good Natured: “I saw The XX play live at Latitude Festival this year, and I was completely blown away. Crystalised is a true gem.”

Banquet– Bloc Party


Let’s Make Love and Listen to Death From Above– CSS


The Good Natured: This song reminds me of being 15 year old ‘new-raver’ and going to the NME Shockwaves Tour with The Klaxons, CSS and New Young Pony Club. I sort of miss glowsticks and wearing hideously bright clothing.

Christine– Siouxsie and the Banshees


Believe Your Own Hype Always–Elle Milano


The Good Natured: I saw Elle Milano supporting The Horrors a while ago and I instantly fell in love with them. The band had an edgy angular sound with sharp rhythms and screamed vocals- such a shame they split up. I loved their cynicism of pretentious clichés found in student culture and the British ‘indie’ scene.

Touch The Sky– Kanye West


When I Grow Up– Fever Ray


The Good Natured: I love Fever Ray. This has to be one of my favourite songs.

Baptism– Crystal Castles


The Good Natured:Alice Glass is brilliant. Crystal Castles are another band I saw at Latitude and she is a true front woman! Baptism is a great song.”

HeartbeatsJose Gonzalez


The Good Natured: “Jose Gonzalez’s cover of The Knife’s Heartbeats is absolutely stunning. It’s also one of the first songs I learnt to play on guitar!”

Neighbourhood #1 Tunnels– Arcade Fire


Into Dust– Mazzy Star


The Good Natured: “I first discovered this song in an episode of the O.C and I had to look it up because it was so heart-wrenchingly beautiful. “

Vicious– Lou Reed


John Gacy Wayne JrSufjan Stevens


The Good Natured: “Sufjan Stevens manages to sing about a 1970’s Chicago-based serial killer and make it into one of the most haunting songs of all time.”

Heartbreaker- MSTRKRFT ft John Legend


The Good Natured: “Fantastic song and I love the video too.”

Human After AllDaft Punk


Once in a Lifetime– Talking Heads


The Good Natured: “What can I say? Classic. ‘You may tell yourself, this is not my beautiful wife!’”

Ageing Had Never Been His Friend– Love Is All


The Good Natured: “Infectious melodic post-punk at it’s very best! I love Josephine Olausson’s almost kiddie-like yelp.”

Disintegration– The Cure


Mad World– Tears for Fears


The Good Natured: “Mad World is one of my favourite songs ever written. I also love the cover by Gary Jules and Michael Andrews from Donnie Darko soundtrack. Incredible.”


The girl’s got taste!!  And here’s her latest video for her single “Be My Animal”, which you can buy here
