This morning, please welcome Gustaf for an episode full of vitamins and energy. NYC post-punk band Gustaf have released their first album a bit over a year ago, filled with catchy tracks that make you want to get your body moving, sing along and just… release. Catharsis through fun, punchy music.

Darker days and winter time change? No worries. You’ll forget about it for a few minutes. Get out of bed, get stretching, get wondering, get dancing. Let this episode give you all the power you need for the coming week.

Gustaf’s selection

Thelonious Monk - Locomotive

Gustaf: This song is great for when you are just rolling out of bed – no words, just a slow clunky climb to the kitchen to make some coffee. Unravel your limbs to Monk’s piano and feel your body lumber and assemble as the instruments climb along with you. Let the music tell you what your body has to say.

Okay Kaya - Mother Nature’s Bitch

Gustaf: Next up, Okay Kaya’s “Mother Nature’s Bitch” is a great soundtrack for opening yourself up to the day ahead. Will you find yourself following the path of pleasure and relaxation? Will you start organizing your work for the rest of the week? Or will you spiral in the terror that is the coming Monday? The possibilities are endless and the uplifting feel of this track will get you headed in the right direction, whatever that might be.

Jennifer Vanilla - Erase the Time

Gustaf: Finally, some Sundays feel like they end far too soon. Extend your sense of time with Jennifer Vanilla’s ‘Erase The Time’. It’s a bouncy track that will make you forget time and space and allow you to dance your way into a limitless Sunday. Tomorrow isn’t here yet — so have some fun!

MailTape’s selection

Gustaf - Best Behaviour

Inès: What’s the vibe like this Sunday? Are you on your best behaviour, at at least convincing others you are? You can always use this song to do so.

John Carroll Kirby - Rainmaker

Inès: Instant smile with this song. Through an incredible and groovy bass line, it feels like you’re going on a journey. A great way to wake up on a Sunday.

Jerry Paper - Shaking Ass

Inès: I love Jerry Paper and this has been quite apparent on here haha. But who does it better when it comes to talking about life? At the end of the day, when things are complicated or overwhelming and that one might get in their own way, maybe all that is needed is a good shake of the ass..

Sophia Chablau e Uma Enorme Perda de Tempo - Delícia/Luxúria

Inès: Three reasons why this track is here: because it fits the catchiness and bounciness of Gustaf’s third pick, because I have been listening to it on repeat over the last months, and overall because it is just an amazing song. Here’s to a kick of energy to start the day!

That’s a wrap for this morning! As always, thank you for joining us. Big thanks to Gustaf for their amazing selection, and to Meriam Kharbat for this episode’s beautiful illustration!

Inès.
