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

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7agPOt1XZz8]

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

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1K3WSVMgRH4]

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

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4F-CpE73o2M]

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

Baptism– Crystal Castles

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrTiT3YkUQg]

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

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yaFYc_RxNsI]

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

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxA2kR3r5bM]

Into Dust– Mazzy Star

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TyQ9lUe-d3I]

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

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMpARx-lnEM]

John Gacy Wayne JrSufjan Stevens

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otx49Ko3fxw]

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

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6gHLHbYVeA]

Once in a Lifetime– Talking Heads

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-io-kZKl_BI]

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

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bV746V1uyTo]

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

Disintegration– The Cure

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggP5YDziMSY]

Mad World– Tears for Fears

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N3N1MlvVc4]

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.”
