FAULT Magazine Weekly Playlist: Sneaky Sound System

SSS 2013 picA white

Sneaky Sound System aka Black Angus and Miss Connie aka two people we wish we were real life friends with. To say that we’re fans of Sneaky would be an understatement. You may remember the Aussie duo’s 2011 dance anthem meets love letter single “Big” or “Really Want To See You Again,” both songs off their album “From Here To Anywhere.” They’ve both been staples on our playlist for quite some time. Known for their extroverted, room filling sound and Connie’s boisterously wonderful vocals, Sneaky continues to make music for the dance inclined masses, closing out 2015 with “All I Need,” a track that sees the duo moving more into the chilled out house space.

We asked Angus and Connie to put together some of their all-time favorite tunes and you might recognize some of these iconic classics, such as New Order’s “Bizarre Love Triangle.” The duo’s 80s influence comes through on their selections and we’re not mad about that at all.

Howard Jones – Like To Get To Know You Well

Angus: I was obsessed with this song when I was really young. I loved the chords, the marimba sound, the drum machine – i guess it was one of the first tracks that got me into electronic music – I even liked his jump suits.

Butch – Dope
Angus: I’m a house head through and through and I like everything Butch does, he sure knows how to pump out the party starters! This is basically a disco loop on repeat but it makes me want explode every time I play it, or hear it. This is definitely my summer jam!!

New Order – Bizarre Love Triangle
Angus: Have finished many a set with this old chestnut. I love that mix of melancholy, joy and hope and here its all bundled up in one of the 80s finest moments. Yes everyone knows it but it still inspires me.

Rufus feat Chaka Khan – Better Days
Angus: I could have chosen many Chaka Khan tunes, or disco for that matter. She just oozes and oozes and oozes!!! She has such a beautiful voice, wonderful phrasing and such dope songs. Love her.

Whitest Boy Alive – Gold Cage
Angus: I love simplicity and this is very simple yet so warm and satisfying. Erlend Oye is a master in my mind and never puts a foot wrong, and i really really like the way he plays guitar. This song has such beautiful lyrics to boot.

King Krule – Easy Easy
Connie: First heard this on a train. Magical. Reminds me of the cold…i mean real cold!! The simplicity and the tone/accent get me.

Vangelis – Blade Runner Soundtrack
Connie: Oh god this is my life! Everything that I am and ever hope to be encapsulated in one body of work. My emotions, my character, my faults and all my habits. Too good!

Spector – All The Sad Young Men
Connie: I love songs that evoke the sentiment of books and this I think F Scott Fitzgerald would be proud of .
