DLC Week of 6/03: Alestorm and Glass Animals

Years of the Tiger & Rabbit

Our first week explores songs released during Years of the Tiger (2010, 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962) and Years of the Rabbit (2011, 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963).

The first DLC track for the week will take you onto the high seas with the definitive pirate-metal band Alestorm. “Shipwrecked” is the second track from their 2011 album Back Through Time and features their iconic accordion-backed metal guitar riffs, lyrics about being shipwrecked on a deserted island and some incredibly fun group vocals for you to chant along to. A tricorn hat won’t guarantee you a Full Combo… but it can’t hurt. 

From their 2020 album Dreamland, Glass Animals’ “Heat Waves” has been making its rounds climbing the Billboard charts since its release. It is #5 on Billboard’s Hot Rock & Alternative chart and #33 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. The song featured a music video filmed by lead singer Dave Bayley’s neighbors from their homes during the UK’s 2020 lockdown and ended with a performance to an empty venue with fellow bandmates on TV screens. The song features a heavily processed guitar track, a fun and driving drum part, a booming bass line and an incredibly memorable vocal chorus with some fun harmonies.

To keep up with Glass Animals, check out their retro-styled website where you can see and buy tickets to their upcoming tour dates including Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in September and Outside Lands in October. You can also find links to their new music, subscribe to their mailing list..
