My favourite songs this week

I’ve heard some terrific new music lately, and I thought I’d share some of my favourite songs this week.

I don’t recall hearing this artist’s music before. This track is a great intro, though.

Nick Mulvey

I’ve been listening to more Nick Mulvey’s music, and enjoying many more of his songs. Here are my current favourites:

I have a growing “Liked Songs” playlist on Spotify that includes all of these tracks. It’s probably a bit too big to share directly, but these songs are some great highlights from songs I added recently to that playlist.

Watch the Formula 1 theme come to life

I like the Formula 1 theme that plays at the beginning of every Formula 1 race. Logically, I knew it had to have been produced in some way. I just wasn’t expecting it to be performed quite like this:

That movie soundtrack genius Brian Tyler produced this theme track makes this even more awesome! Here it is on Spotify too:

Mumford & Sons album Delta is awesome

I only just noticed that Mumford & Sons have a new(ish) album, Delta. I’m listening to it as I work, and it’s really good! I’ve basically had “If I say” on repeat for the last 15 minutes:

You can listen to the whole album on Spotify, and wherever else fine albums may be streamed or purchased.

Vicarious adventures with GoPro

Vicarious adventures with GoPro

One of my new favourite YouTube channels is the GoPro channel. It’s an awesome channel for vicarious adventures, and some great music I wasn’t aware of. One of my favourite videos is this promo of the GoPro HERO6:

The track in this video is A Moment Apart by Odesza, and it’s my morning work anthem today:

My introduction to Narkis and Claire Guerreso

I’ve been listening to two artists I hadn’t come across until recently. The first artist who’s new to me is an Israeli artist/band called Narkis. I head their song ״ממה אתה בורח״ (“What are you running from?”) in a Spotify playlist titled ״בדרך״ yesterday, and I’m obsessed:

I went looking for a music video for this song, and this video is the closest I’ve come to seeing this song performed live – what a presence!


Another artist I started listening to, and enjoy, is Claire Guerreso, whose track “Ashes” was featured in a powerful scene on the TV show, Lucifer, that my wife and I have been binging for the last month or so:

This track is wonderful, and a powerful theme for that particular scene in the show. Another terrific track is “Skipping Stones”:

I’m working with my team at a meetup in Lisbon, and really enjoying this track from the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack:

I enjoyed Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur movie

We watched Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword today. I’ve been listening to Daniel Pemberton’s soundtrack for the last week or so, and was looking forward to watching the movie.

The movie didn’t do well at the Box Office, and a series of sequels was scrapped. That’s a big pity. I really enjoyed how the movie was made, and the main actors. It was pretty clearly a Guy Ritchie movie, but then again, I like his style.

Here’s the soundtrack, if you’d like to get a feel for the movie:

Feeling a bit better with this song

I’ve had a rough week or two with more anxiety and depression than usual. Music tends to help my mood, and “Like Gold” by Vance Joy is one of those songs for me:

Actually, I’m really enjoying Vance Joy generally at the moment. Here’a a great playlist to binge with:
