Talkhouse Playlist: Mystical Tracks from Communions

Hip-hop nostalgia and honest love songs from the Danish psych rockers.

This Friday, Danish four-piece Communions will release their debut full-length album, Blue, on Fat Possum. To celebrate, the band put together today’s playlist, featuring some of their favorite tracks by everyone from the Grateful Dead to Sade. Enjoy!
–Dave Lucas, Talkhouse Marketing Manager

Grateful Dead – “Scarlet Begonias”

Well, I ain’t often right but I’ve never been wrong/Seldom turns out the way it does in a song.

Rumer – “Be Thankful for What You Got”

William DeVaughn made this, but somehow I’m really drawn to her version.

Sade – “Nothing Can Come Between Us”

Because “it’s about faith/It’s about trust, yeah yeah.”

Rubba – “Way Star”

This song is very smooth and I’m really into the atmosphere. The time walks by.

Deep Forrest – “Sweet Lullaby”

Really a mystical track. It has stuck with me since I first heard it. I find myself coming back to it every now and then.

Fleetwood Mac – “Oh Well”

Blue song from Fleetwood Mac when Peter Green was around. Spaghetti Western feeling to it.

The Kinks – “Living on a Thin Line”

The Sopranos brought me here.

Yo La Tengo – “When It’s Dark”

An honest love song. Really into the intro and the overall setting of this tune.

MF DOOM – “Doomsday”

MF Doom is so nostalgic. Reminds me of a different time. I think he makes really good rhymes etc.

Ta-Ha – “LILBIT”

Stumbled onto this song the other day, heard it many times since. I like this, it is a good song.
