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.
