Primavera Sound gets under way in Barcelona this week (27-30 May), bringing a host of local and international artists together in Spain. To guide us through this year’s line-up head of the booking Fra Soler has made Q this Playlist.

The Replacements – I Will Dare

“Legendary! It will be the first time The Replacements play in Spain. We are truly proud of having them at our festival.”

Tobias Jesso Jr – How Could You Babe

“One of the names of the year, echoing the best Harry Nilsson and Randy Newman tunes.”

“An avalanche of goosebumps every time I listen to this!”

John Talabot – Machine

“One of our favourite local artists. Open-minded and talented, he embodies the spirit of our festival.”

Spiritualized – Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space

“God and opiate drugs set a unique place for a gospel-rock psychedelia op-art spiral that probably had one of its peaks in this marvelous tune.”

Movement – Us

“Definitely a highlight of our last Primavera Club edition. Glad to have them at Primavera Sound.”

Patti Smith – Redondo Beach

“An innocent predecessor of the punk-reggae association that became so common some years later, Redondo beach is not the best nor the most popular song in the enormous Horses totemic album, but it’s a surprisingly pioneer one.”

Giant Sand – Shiver

“After many years of essay/error practicing with country-folk rootsy postmodern desert old rock’n’roll Howe Gelb should be as iconic as a cactus.”

Ride – Dreams Burn Down

“One of the most influential bands of the 90s. We’ve been praying for a reunion and we are ecstatic to finally have them at Primavera.”

Death From Above 1979 – Trainwreck

One of the rare instances of a reunion act sounding more raw and urgent than before the break-up.
