Listen Weekly 03: Chairs

Listen Weekly 03: Chairs

Whilst most playlists are designed to get you off your feet, our third Listen Weekly selection encourages you to embrace one of life’s simple pleasures – sitting down…

Following on from our soundtracks for ‘Gathering’ and ‘Botanical’, this week at Hole & Corner HQ we’ve been enjoying focusing on chairs. Not your standard playlist theme, this presented us with a little bit of challenge and also set us on a path of discovery – and not a ‘Sit Down’ by James in sight! Featuring music from artists old and new, our eclectic selection combines The Moody Blues, The Beach Boys and The Turtles, through to Jorge Ben Jor, Sarah Cracknell and Albert Hammond Jr from The Strokes.

Next week we’ll aim to capture our theme of ‘Scent’… through sound!

The tracklist:

01. The Moody Blues – ‘Are You Sitting Comfortably?’

02. Albert Hammond Jr – ‘Spooky Couch’

03. Sarah Cracknell – ‘Favourite Chair’

04. Buffalo Springfield – ‘Sit Down I Think I Love You’

05. The Beach Boys – ‘Take A Load Off Your Feet’

06. Yo La Tengo – ‘Beanbag Chair’

07. Toots & The Maytals – ‘Sit Right Down’

08. Henry Westmoreland – ‘Don’t Sit Down’ (Bowie cover)

09. Jorge Ben Jor – ‘Take It Easy My Brother Charles’

10. The Turtles – ‘There You Sit Lonely’

11. Stephen Stills – ‘Sit Yourself Down’

12. The Beatles – ‘Carry That Weight’
