Janelle Monae


Glastonbury, the world’s largest music and arts festival, takes place this weekend in South West England.

Traditionally the last weekend in June, Glastonbury has been going strong since 1970 when T.Rex was the headliner.

Today, the line-up is daunting with hundreds of bands and performing artists on numerous stages covering 900 acres.

RCRDLBL has a free download of thirty-one of the bands appearing at this year’s Glastonbury Festival, including The Kills, Lykke Li, Janelle Monae, Battles, Fleet Foxes, Warpaint, Wu-Tang Clan and, and this song “Celestica” from Crystal Castles remixed by Thurston Moore.

The world of music is cyclical and goes into hiatus a few weeks before Christmas and into the new year. Slowly new music is released in January and gains momentum later in the winter flowing into the spring.

Bands that enthralled me last year included Arcade Fire, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Avi Buffalo, Badly Drawn Boy, Beach House, Belle & Sebastian, Best Coast, Blonde Redhead, Delorean, The Drums, Dum Dum Girls, Eminem, Girl Talk, Glasser, Gorillaz, Janelle Monáe, Joanna Newsom, Karen Elson, Laura Marling, Lykke Li, Matt & Kim, Mumford & Sons, The National, No Age, Perfume Genius, Phoenix, School of Seven Bells, She & Him, Shearwater, Sleigh Bells, Stars, Titus Andronicus and Warpaint.

And The xx continued to give me great pleasure.

Here you will hear the best new music as it becomes available.

Next week we will have an exclusive Cure video.

Happy New Year indeed.
