This Is Our Second Podcast

"So why the hell haven't you listened to it yet?"

Part 2 of the soon-to-be world famous Safety, Fun and Learning podcast. We’ve got a song from a band called EMMA this week in the first half. They’re worth a quick mention here as well as a listen when you stream it. A couple of Aussies who are making music that seems sun-infused and lighthearted. They sent around an email with a link in. See, we do listen to them, honest!

Anyway, as usual, give it a listen and let us know what you think in the comments below…

#9 – Shakira Covers the xx

The xx… But not The xx

Well, everybody’s favourite She-Wolf has done something a little unexpected. Shakira has had a crack at The xx, and it’s awesome. It’s like she’s added a little bit of sunshine to a brooding track and then slightly karaoke’d it. And the song gets better when you imagine her dancing to it. Shakira, we look forward to the music video…

#8 – Four Tet & the xx

Just a super quick one for you here. Kieron Hebdon (Four Tet) has given the XX a remix, and it is great! It’s all DFA and there’s a sample/synth at the start that sounds very familiar that I can’t quite put my finger on. Basically it’s awesome, give it a listen
