January 2020 playlist

Every month I make a Spotify playlist with my discoveries for that month. This is the one for January:

Curls – Bibio: I love the combination of electronic and analog sounds. A very nice sound.

Killer + The Sound – Phoebe Bridgers, Noah Gunderson, Abby Gunderson: I keep seeing the name Phoebe Bridgers around. I need to check out more stuff by her.

Night Shift – Lucy Dacus: Really interesting words. I love the way this explodes at the end. The chorus is super catchy too.

Warm Foothills – atl-j: A good song and a really nice warm sound.

Sing About It – The Wood Brothers: A very useful message

Funeral Singers – Sylvan Esso & Collections Of Colonies Of Bees: This is really interesting combination of the darkness of Sylvan Esso and the warmth of COCOB.

Masterpiece – Big Thief: Big Thief are my new obsession. I would have added a couple more songs to this month but I try to keep to one per artist. This song is a masterpiece.

I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free – Nina Simone: Not a new discovery, but it had a whole new meaning to me this month.

You’re The One – Dirty Projectors, Robin Pecknold, Rostam: Another interesting collaboration. These voices compliment each other really really well. More please!

Cut Your Bangs – Girlpool: This reminds me of Best Coast. The melody is exquisite. I keep expecting it to break out into a noisy chorus but it never delivers. Maybe that’s ok.

Model Railway For Sale

My friend’s grandfather moved house, leaving a model railway in his loft. It was headed for the rubbish dump, so I tried to rescue as much as I could. Much of it ended up being broken or damaged, but I expect much of it will be of use to someone. There is a lot. It’s listed on ebay.

You can bid on ebay.

It’s not a train track.
