Playlist – Skewed Quiff April 2019

Dear happy festival-goers,

Leeds has awoken from its hibernation and with Live at Leeds at the ready the city is in full musical bloom. The Quiff tried to reflect his hectic gig marathon in the April playlist hopping from one new talent to the other.

Manchester based duo Chappaqua Wrestling are a band to watch. Jake and Charlie have been making music together for half a lifetime and “Plant Trees” is one of their ingenious results. Hak Baker and his coming-of-age song “Conundrum” somehow blends grime and blues into something completely new. Sports Team give the Quiff list a cheeky lo-fi edge with probably the catchiest chorus – slight exaggeration here – EVER. In the heavier corner you’ll find Squid who describe themselves as “Brighton and London’s most insatiable underwater boy band“ which sounds very promising. “The Dial“ is a little appetiser for what’s coming on Saturday. Quiff’s joyous band introduction ends with Tamu Massif, even though the playlist contains 15 more brilliant artists. “Animals” is a true gem that toggles stylewise between experimental and singer-songwriter. The crackly intro is already worth a listen.
