Challenge rules for any newbies – pretty simple and not too strict. Just pick a tune you heard this week and want to share, and add it to the playlist. Could be a new release, discovered or rediscovered oldie, a tune you stumbled across, or what you’re listening to these days.
Ravi is a genius and finally got the link sorted for adding to the list yourselves – for future reference for anyone else attempting a collab playlist, you just have to hotlink it in some text. I hope.

Not a new release but newtome this week – released on EP in 2012. Seems that one of my printmaking teachers has musical taste right up my alley, and not much on her playlists i can quibble with – dream pop and psych that’s perfect to work to. Especially as, like Shane, i’ve been a bit melancholy on and off these days. Lovely stuff.

I still can’t figure this link to the playlist out yet, so unless someone else can, you’ll have to post them in the comments and i’ll add them manually to the list. I’ll be away on Tues night so i won’t be able to do it till Wednesday.
No new release from me this week, had a busy weekend. This 90’s janglepop beauty showed up on the playlist of my college radio station.
It seems to be kinda difficult to keep a challenge going on here these days, but i miss them so i’m going to give it another go. And i’ll try to make it an easy one as well. The concept is simple – add a tune to the list that you’ve discovered and liked over the past week and want to share. It doesn’t have to be a new release at all, it can be an oldie that you’ve discovered, or a tune that you’ve rediscovered, or however else you want to define it.
It’s no Uptown Funk, but given the ugliness of our domestic situation here these days, i like Bruno’s chill flashback to early soul and disco. Takes me back to high school and college summers on the beach during the day and in the bars and clubs at night.
I realize that Thursday is probably a bad day for a challenge as the topics go up on the other blogs. Any suggestions as to a better day? Friday to get through the weekend, Wednesday to not compete with the other regular posts? Also, this is my first shot at a collab youtube playlist. I can’t seem to post the collabo link without it showing as a playlist. Can someone help? Thanks.
It’s been a while since i’ve done a Best Cover Artist ever post, and i’m not going to do one now either. But i did stumble on this Track of the Day blog on The Atlantic, which it bills as “the most transformative cover songs”. Many will be familiar to those of us around these parts, but there are many that are new to me. Fell in love with this cover of one of my favorite CSN songs. Other faves from the blog – The Gourds’ Gin and Juice and Blue Man Group / Venus Hum’s I Feel Love, Aztec Camera’s Jump. They take submissions too. (maybe look away from the Sisters of Mercy cover, Beth)
That time of year again. Work is slow, lots of tedious photoshopping to do, needed a new mellowish playlist i could work to. Mostly folkish, some old, some new, some blue. More females than usual, twee alert for some strings, bit of jangle, bit of gentle groovy psychy and soulish surf pop, and a familiar stonker to wrap it up. Because at some point it’s going to be spring and i’m going to have to get out of the house.
I think it was Carole who said that it wasn’t a party without Earth, Wind, and Fire.
Thanks for everything.
Feel free to post any of your own faves.
