Our new band of the week is Glasgow based Bossy Love.

Following our interview and their guide to their hometown earlier in the week, they’ve put together an eclectic playlist of 15 songs for your listening pleasure – a collection that ranges from Robyn to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

Read on for what Amandah and John have to say about some of the songs, and listen to the full playlist at the end of this post.

1. Lisa Lisa & The Cult Jam – I Wonder If I Take You Home

Amandah: I love the production of this, it’s all in the drums for me. Really minimal with plenty of percussive sounds.

2. Robyn – Call Your Girlfriend

Amandah: She’s the ultimate pop star for me, she’s totally real.

3. Cameo – Candy

Amandah: Magical melodies and just an overall jam.

4. OutKast – Prototype

Amandah: Andre 3000’s falsetto, it’s like cloudy stoner vibes.

5. Lauryn Hill – Ex Factor

Amandah: The most amazing voice, performance and perfectly heartbreaking song. So bittersweet.

6. The Fugees – How Many Mics

Amandah: Particularly this live version, where Lauryn busts out a crazy freestyle causing a riot in the crowd.

7. Tame Impala – Feels Like We Only Go Backwards

Amandah: I love the feel and movement of this song. It coasts along and is perfect driving music.

8. Sirusmo – Last Dear

John: Siriusmo has been a favourite producer of mine since I discovered him in 2004 – this track has all his trademarks, warm analogue fuzz, a certain melancholy with an over-arcing sense of fun.

9. The-Dream – Fancy

John: One of the first artists Amandah and I bonded over, this is him at his most unconventional, a 6:20 song that builds up to the drums entering a whole 15 seconds before it finishes.

10. Boredoms – Super Are

John: The best live band I’ve ever seen, constantly reinventing what live music can be: from smashing a bulldozer through the venue wall to playing with 77 drummers.

11. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan – Allah Hu

John: He’s often referred to as the “voice of god” – sounds about right.

12. Smashing Pumpkins – Here Is No Why

John: The soundtrack of my stoned Advanced Higher Art and Design sessions in High School.

13. I.F.O (Identified Flying Object) featuring Afrika Bambaataa – Nibiru

John: Nicolas Jaar’ s IFO project with legendary hip hop producer – serious rubbery synths, super satisfying.

14. Young Fathers – Old Rock N Roll

John: Absolute fire from Edinburgh.

15. Shye Ben Tzur, Jonny Greenwood & The Rajastan Express – Junun

John: Israeli composer, traditional Indian band, guy from Radiohead, produced by Nigel Godrich, recorded in a fort in India which was filmed by Paul Thomas Anderson – like someone has invaded my dreams. A proper mix of styles without ever sounding “remixy”, although I’d love to hear “Roked” in a club.
