A few weeks ago, the French webzine I Am Justeen asked Alex to share 5 songs that inspire him as an artist but also as the fan of music he is. Play it right now on Spotify!
He explained the reasons behind his choices in the article. Initially written in French, we translated the article in English.
For this new playlist, a band straight out of Montreal, Your Favorite Enemies, kindly volunteered to participate. (Thanks to Juliette for the opportunity). Alex, the band’s singer, shares with us his 5 favorite songs. Fans of Nick Cave, Bauhaus, or Swans, this playlist is for you!
DEAD KENNEDYS – POLICE TRUCK
Few bands know how to make me smile in a way that’s sadistic yet blissful as Dead Kennedys can do. From the first quavering chord of “Police Truck”, I immediately remember why I scream in a microphone and why I never did my law classes, to my mom’s disarray. So if you ever find yourself in doubt concerning your scholar/professional path, this song isn’t for you…!
GRINDERMAN – HONEY BEE (LET’S FLY TO MARS)
I joined the cult of the Bad Seeds / Grinderman for Nick Cave & Warren Ellis’ genius, twisted yet evangelic, and for their common emotional rage, delivered with no compromise through a sensorial whirlwind that’s profoundly heartfelt and painfully felt.
SWANS – THE GLOWING MAN
Few bands can boast being able to grasp our heart and soul and subdue spirits like Michael Gira does with Swans. Like shaman masters, they work their way through tensions and abandon, between moments of trance and uplifts. “Glowing Man” is found somewhere between shadows and lights, between madness and rebirth.
MOGWAI – HUNGRY FACE
Mogwai is without a doubt one of my favorite bands. They have a unique and singular way of touching the invisible through a mixture of emotions that take the colors of nostalgia, hope, melancholy, and sounds that oscillate between fragility and stormy, always reaching the edge of falling or taking flight.
BAUHAUS – IN THE FLAT FIELD
Guilty pleasure during my several rough patches, where I can’t feel any emotions at all. Bauhaus brings my heart numbed by boredom to wake up again through the sonic chaos that is characteristic of life, with its soul awakening, its anxiety, and its quintessential affectionate epiphanies.
