Sounds Like Now #8 | Miami Disco

Right. Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is out. I’ve just installed it. By the time you read this, I’ll be lost in a violent neon blood-soaked haze. If you’re unfamiliar with all things Hotline Miami, please note the following:

1. It’s amazing

2. It’s amazing



3. The music is incredibly amazing

4. It’s amazing

5. For the love of christ just play it

But that music, though. So goddamn great. Maybe even better than the game itself. Sequels gotta up the ante and if these four tracks are anything to go by, job done.

‘IN CASE YOU MISSED IT’ SECTION

The eagled-eyed among you will note that there was no Sounds Like Now column last week. Apologies. Here’s what would have featured:

Chromatics – ‘I Can Never Be Myself When You’re Around’

If this doesn’t make you dance, you’re dead.

Kanye West – ‘All Day’

I wish I was Kanye West’s friend, too. Still terribly worried about the album, however. This is better, though. And oh hey, it’s DEFINITELY Paul McCartney doing the whistling at the end! Great! Can he fuck off now?

‘TONY HAWK PRO SKATER TRIBUTE’ SECTION

Only Rivals – ‘REPLACE // EXCHANGE’

Only Rivals are from Dublin and it isn’t 2003. Still ridiculously catchy and accomplished pop punk, though.

‘UNLIKELY MAROON 5 TRIBUTE’ SECTION

Nickelback – ‘She Keeps Me Up’

Y’know, I’d suggest Chad Kroeger should be especially ashamed of himself this time but dude looks like fucking CGI now so I can’t imagine he has thoughts or feelings anymore. If there’s a worse song than this all year, I’ll electrocute myself.

CONVERGE-APPROVED AGGRESSION OF THE WEEK

Seriously, if Kurt Ballou thinks it’s worth listening to, then it’s worth listening to.

‘DIDN’T KNOW THEY HAD IT IN THEM’ OF THE WEEK

Tame Impala – ‘Let It Happen’
