Music: Villiers’ Vague Utopia – Some Favourites

Lianne La Havas

By Issy Villiers

I have to admit that it’s been tricky making a playlist of only seven songs. Despite this, I came to the conclusion that the finest way to introduce my new ‘Issy’s Listening to’ column would be to compile a list of some of my best-loved tracks.

Bask in these glorious melodies, dear ones.

What Issy’s Listening to this Week (30th Nov – 6th Dec)

Artist – Song Title

1. Various Cruelties – Chemicals

I’m rather fond of these chaps and highly recommend that every Tom, Dick, and Harry Georgie, Sophie, and Jess invests in their debut album ‘Various Cruelties’, which was released earlier this year.

Fact: Not long ago they supported Kasabian on their arena tour.

2. Mystery Jets – Two Doors Down

Makes one reminisce fondly about summer evenings spent in and around Notting Hill and never fails to plant a smile on my face.

Fact: Mystery Jets are from a very lovely island, Eel Pie Island. This wee isle is situated in the River Thames, not too far away from Richmond.

3. The Maccabees – Toothpaste Kisses

Makes for perfect listening curled up beside a fire on a winter’s evening with a nice cuppa tea. I recommend peppermint tea, a very tasty beverage.

4. Ben Howard – Old Pine

Reminds me of the mountains around Loch Lomond in Scotland, a really wonderful, peaceful place.

Fact: His favourite fruit is a pear.

5. Lianne La Havas – No Room For Doubt (feat. Willy Mason)

A lady with an incredibly beautiful voice, very good to relax or doze off to.

6. Real Estate – It’s Real

Lend an ear to this on a pleasant countryside wander.

7. Jack Peñate – So Near 

First-class to listen for when speeding along on the train or the tube.

Fact: Fan of Fulham Football Club

Issy will be back next week with more delightful tunes.
