Curator Picks | Week Of 13th August
Written by The Team on 27 August 2021
Each week our curators put together a list of new songs to be featured on RDU. We’ve taken their hit pick and compiled them into one action-packed playlist.
Check out their picks below.
Becca: KÉDU CARLÖ – Don’t Call Me On My Birthday
If you haven’t heard of Kédu Carlö yet, who are you?! And why haven’t you?! These Tāmaki Makarau soul sisters bat it out of the park with another live produced Acid filthy number.
Hannah: French For Rabbits – Ouija Board
Dream-pop-folk band French For Rabbits have released a dreamy single ‘Ouija Board’. With the official announcement of their upcoming record ‘The Overflow’, ‘Ouija Board’ is the second tease of the album. Check out their music video – it’s magical.
My track this week is Maximum by Otautahi producer Azure, featuring Luis on vocals. A nod to grime and garage, with their own unique spin.
Lewis: Bad For Education – Cindy Wastetime
I jumped on the Strokes train pretty late — “Is This It” was further down on a list I have of albums that are critically rated but have a contentious fanbase. I can hear so much of what I recognise to be that lo-fi-tech sound and rough-around-the-edges ethos in this lot. Still needs a bit of polish off from the simplicity, but that’s part of the charm.
