MOJOPL AYLIST

Get your boots on your feet for the month’s finest rhythms, riffs and right­eous rage, and get stompin’.

Mojo (UK) - - What Goes On! -

1 ST VIN­CENT

The Big Ap­ple as metaphor for heart­break, as voice, pi­ano, strings, elec­tric pulses and a big cho­rus ru­mi­nate with in­creas­ing dis­trac­tion on a re­la­tion­ship that’s gone down the Swan­nee, with An­nie Clark mak­ing the brave ad­mis­sion, “You’re the only moth­er­fucker in the city who can stand me.” Ever wag­gish – see her ‘St. Vin­cent Be­comes Am­bas­sador To Recorstorda’ (sic) on­line clip – she’s pre­vi­ously sung it live sport­ing a toi­let cos­tume, but will she wear it on Oc­to­ber’s Fear The Fu­ture tour?

2 END­LESS BOO­GIE ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

Prime live in-the-zone-ness from the be­he­moths of im­pro­visatory in­evitabil­ity. It’s on a sin­gle given away with Paul ‘Top Dol­lar’ Ma­jor’s amaz­ing book Feel The Mu­sic, a trove of mem­o­ries, thoughts and mega-rare wax, out now on An­thol­ogy Edi­tions. Find It: YouTube

3 SNAPPED AN­KLES JONNY GUI­TAR CALL­ING GOSTA BER­LIN

Ar­bo­real fun from an East Lon­don trio whose high-con­cept eco art-prank ten­den­cies are off­set by some fan­tas­tic Sl­its-y pum­melled per­cus­sion, post-punk aloof­ness and from-the-trees whoops and grooves. Find It: YouTube

4 THE HOR­RORS MA­CHINE

The Es­sex goth-gaz­ers re­turn with glitchy, wide­load psych rock with gears and pis­tons, which pos­si­bly wishes Martin Han­nett had pro­duced it. Bodes well for fifth al­bum V, out in Septem­ber. Find It: Sound­Cloud

5 BARRY GIBB SPICKS AND SPECKS

Per­formed live at this year’s Glas­ton­bury, you can imagine The Bee Gees’ 1966 sin­gle be­ing played by The Kinks or Mad­ness, such is its bal­ance of pop sing-along and colos­sal poignancy, es­pe­cially a half-cen­tury on. Find It: iPlayer

6 MATTHEW DEAR MODAFINIL BLUES

Bassy, rhyth­mic woozi­ness for the yacht club, wherein the Michi­gan pro­ducer/ artiste muses upon his alert­nesspro­mot­ing med­i­ca­tion, “I searched and I yearned for that pill to get me through.” Find It: Sound­Cloud 7 NEIL YOUNG + THE PROM­ISE OF THE REAL CHIL­DREN OF DES­TINY With brass and clumpy drums, this or­ches­tral song of peo­ple power finds Neil call­ing for proper Amer­i­can val­ues, sav­ing the world and the youth to clear up the greed­heads’ mess. Find It: YouTube

8 BERNARD HERRMANN THE MUR­DER

The cel­e­brated ter­ror-in-the-shower slash­ing strings theme from Hitch­cock’s Psy­cho thought­fully reis­sued on seven-inch in a lim­ited run of 1960 copies. Mother! Find It: Sty­lo­tone 7-inch

9 WASHED OUT HARD TO SAY GOOD­BYE

From new al­bum Mis­ter Mel­low, this repli­cates the el­e­gant sounds of mid-’90s Parisian house, as heard on Éti­enne de Crécy’s Su­per Dis­count comp. Find It: Sound­Cloud

10 DEAD CROSS BELA LUGOSI’S DEAD

Now with Mike Pat­ton on vo­cals, Slayer/Mis­fits drum­mer Dave Lom­bardo’s Dead Cross add a whole new layer of mor­tal dread to the Bauhaus orig­i­nal with buzzing gui­tars and gravedig­ger vo­cals. Find It: YouTube

11 PROPHETS OF RAGE UNFUCK THE WORLD

Tom Morello, Chuck D and pals spew right­eous anger ad­vo­cat­ing strong uni­fi­ca­tion vibes and self-ac­count­abil­ity over top grooves and bru­tal basslines. Find It: Vevo

12 SAB­RINA MALHEIROS SOL, CEU E MAR

Un­leash your in­ner Giles Peter­son; pour your­self a caipir­inha and sur­ren­der to the warm em­brace of slap-bass and lightly funky Rhodes pi­ano on this track from the glassy-voiced Malheiros’ Clareia al­bum. Find It: YouTube

13 SUB­WAY JOE JOE BATAAN

Rau­cous booga­loo-soul with blar­ing ap­proach­ing-train brass from ’65, where our nar­ra­tor comes a crop­per and gets his brand-new suit torn try­ing to get a seat on the un­der­ground. Rough! Find It: YouTube

14 MURA MASA BLU (FT. DA­MON ALBARN)

In ca­hoots with the Guernsey pro­ducer, here Albarn slips onto vocoder for a min­i­mal tech-soul song of lone­li­ness and not be­ing un­der­stood. Feel the qual­ity. Find It: Sound­Cloud

15 RAMONES SWAL­LOW MY PRIDE

An un­re­leased ver­sion recorded at NY’s Sun­dragon stu­dio, taken from the new, ex­tras-packed 40th an­niver­sary reis­sue of Leave Home. Find It: Sound­Cloud

16 FISCHERSPOONER HAVE FUN TONIGHT

The NY Elec­tro­clash duo break si­lence, keep­ing it part techno, part Vis­age, with in­struc­tions to “Get Off”. From the al­bum SIR, which is co-writ­ten and co-pro­duced by one Michael Stipe. Yes, that fine fel­low. Find It: YouTube

17 THE 360 BAND THE MIGHTY FALL

Where The Av­er­age White Band – or three of them – re­unite for a funky and soul­ful tribute to the greatness of Muham­mad Ali, some­thing you can never be re­minded of too many times, right? Find It: YouTube

18 ROTTERDAM TER­MI­NA­TION SOURCE POING

A Num­ber 27 hit from 1992, here is gabba su­per-sim­plic­ity from the Manchester of the Nether­lands. Like be­ing bashed over the head re­peat­edly with a rub­ber mal­let. Find It: YouTube 19 BOYS WON­DER NOW WHAT EARTHMAN A 1987 sin­gle from pop-art could’ve beens who were in on the ter­race rock re­vival early (they later mu­tated into Cor­duroy). Find It: YouTube

20 SHELLAC DOG AND PONY SHOW

Shellac are com­ing to the UK in Oc­to­ber! To cel­e­brate our good for­tune, here’s the world’s great­est (oc­ca­sion­ally) ac­tive tung­sten trio rum­bling through a high­light from 1994. Find It: YouTube
