A new Batman movie is out this week. I thought I would take the opportunity to curate a playlist with 5 masked (or wearing helmets) bands / musicians.
MF Doom (& Czarface) - Bomb Thrown: Let's start this playlist with MF Doom. The big villain metal face (who left us at the end of 2020) was one of the most hip hop enigmatic figures. He has a very recognizable voice and tempo, always sounding slightly off track. This song is one of the highlights of the collaboration album with CZARFACE.
Bob Log III - Log Bomb : Bob Log III is a one-man band from Tucson, Arizona, like nothing you have ever seen. He's dressed in a human cannonball suit & a full-face helmet with a telephone receiver stuck on the front and plays a badass delta blues electro party on a real beat-up hollow-body guitar & bass drum.
GOAT - Gathering of Ancient Tribes
Goat is a swedish alternative= rock. They wear masks and costumes and play a very hyptonizing crossover of western pop and influences from outside such as funk, afrobeat and world music with a high dose of sprinkled psychedelia.
Buckethead - For Mom: Another mysterious masked and wearing KFC bucket helmet guitarist. This one is from his early work, much more chilled and acoustic guitar-oriented than the guitar- hero-esque of his more recent albums.
Daft Punk - Short Circuit: I had to finish this playlist with Daft Punk. The French lords of electronic music. Here’s one of my favourite songs from their Discovery album, the most futurist and subtle album. One of the greatest albums of electronic music.
