This girl has great taste in tunes

We really like Alex Maxwell. She’s a singer/songwriter from London, and she makes danceable pop music with hazy guitars and the sort of choruses that were built for daytime radio. This is her latest single – it’s called Lie To Me, and we think that it’s great:

She’s not bad at all, is she

As a matter of fact, we think that she’s pretty flippin’ great. That’s why we couldn’t resist asking Alex to put together a playlist of her favourite songs, exclusively for the listening pleasure of you lovely lot. You can find her full playlist at the bottom of this page – but, for now, here’s Alex telling you a little bit about why she chose a few of the songs:

Monika – Secret in the Dark

‘The riff reminds me of Stevie Wonder’s Superstition, and that’s definitely a great thing. Combined with her sultry vocals and those awesome backing vocals, it cuts to the groove instantly. A great sound to start a playlist with.

 

Alpha Blondy – I Wish You Were Here

‘An excruciatingly great reggae cover of such an epic song. Alpha Blondy has all my respect for this one.

 

 

Fleetwood Mac – I Loved Another Woman

‘Being a massive Fleetwood Mac fan (and knowing both Rumours and Tango In The Night back to front), I had to throw it way back with them this summer to when it was Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac. Classy, sexy, bluesy.. what’s not to love?”
