This week’s Thank God It’s Spotifriday is brought to you by Alex, who kicks things off with The Stone Roses’ eternal classic, ‘Elephant Stone’. This is followed by the new single from Manchester’s rapidly rising post-punk stars, PINS, and then the University of Nottingham’s very own shoegazers, Childhood. Next come John Lydon’s PiL with ‘Public Image’ and New York punk-rockers, Parquet Courts, before Cowboy Junkies with their superb Velvet Underground cover. Sheffield’s grungey two-piece, Drenge, up the ante, before Manchester’s ambient Money chill us all out again. Charlie Boyer & the Voyeurs bring their Television-inspired 70s art-punk to the party, leaving Bobby Gillespie and co. to round things off with a krautrock-inspired track from their new album. Enjoy.
