Recently I discovered a certain site called Urban Outfitters. Laugh as you might at my tragic hitherto ignorance, Urban Outfitters it transpires is musically more hip than a rhythmic pelvis.

On first impressions, UO appears nothing more than your run of the mill clothes shop. However, rummage deeper in the Urban Outfitters wardrobe and you will find a Narnia of eclectic music features. Included in this haven are downloadable LSTN playlists, 5 free songs from Music Mondays and, the ultimate ear-pleaser, UO Radio. 

Below is my highlight of LSTN 16

Devin

You’re Mine has underlying tones of, well, The Undertones as it goes.

Fay Brotherhood is a unique soul whom charts Pagan & Celtic influences for her traditional folk outfit. Take this song for example: her soundtrack to Boudicca’s supposed final skirmish in the Battle of Watling Street, which took place near Mancetter on the Warwickshire-Leicestershire boundary. Drawn from her second album Follow the Falcon, Blue Spiral Screams is a mystical track that perfectly captures the uncertainty that must have been engrained in the minds of Boudicca’s army. 

 

Free listening to Fay’s ethereal debut Whispers in the Boughs produced in 2003.
