We7 nu-metal playlist for 14th Feb – Valentine Bloody Valentine!
Age old debate: Who’s the best member of Genesis – Phil Collins or Peter Gabriel?
Well of course Collins must have thought he had it in the bag after those Cadbury adverts, but Gabriel’s getting on it too with the recent rise to prominence of We7 – a music streaming service that is pretty ace. As to whether it is as good as Spotify, the jury is out as of yet, but its playlist section seems awesome – so when Sarah from the company got in touch asking Alcopop Records to submit a playlist for Valentine’s Day I was more than happy, in between mailorders, to oblige.
So being a label who prides ourselves upon championing the forefront of the finest in indie pop, we thought we’d go all out – and pick the most seductive nu-metal mix-tape of all time – with perhaps a bit of Peter Gabriel chucked in for good measure. After all, the best Valentine’s Day are always mixed in with a bit of Papa Roach, Limp Bizkit and Adema (or is that just me) and this year should be no different. I’ve kept it to 13 tracks, for obvious reasons, so perhaps it should actually be listened to on Friday but hey – it’s all good.
Pop over and have a look if you fancy a nu-metal Valentines extravaganza. The playlist is below… Or for something a little more sensitive for your other half, may I recommend a touch of Hush the Many (Heed the Few) who NME reckon is “the kind of power-goth love song that Tom Editors will put on when he gets down on one knee and makes an honest woman out of Edith Bowman” – or the “enchanting” Lucy and The Caterpillar? Get ‘em while they’re hot!
