My second year at university has been over for a few weeks now, for longer if you don’t include the work experience month. As such, by the time this posts, I’ll be on a coach from London’s worst station (Victoria. It’s only narrowly worse than KX) en route back to the grey hills of Yorkshire and Leeds/Harrogate.
To commemorate (did I really say commemorate?) this non-event, I’ve made a short playlist of tracks released in the last year (give or take a few months) that have soundtracked the last three terms at UCA. It’s missing The Streets, Brand New, Marvin Gaye, all of the Boat That Rocked soundtrack and anything from the end of the magazine project, but you get the idea. I’d post the reasoning behind everything, but it doesn’t really matter. Bonus points for spotting me in two of the videos.
Bombay Bicycle Club –How Do You Swallow So Much Sleep
Sigur Ros – Varúó
Lucy Rose – Middle of the Bed
Ben Howard – Only Love
Los Campesinos! – By Your Hand
Scroobius Pip – Introdiction
The 1975 – S e x (not in Spotify)
So that’s that for another year. Summer comes now in which I need to locate finance through a job and selling my posessions and after that comes a move into the landscape that is South London and the third year of Music Journalism at UCA.
Take care of each other
