June Playlist

May Playlist

May is off to a rad start with new material from Jon Parks (!), Sons of Bill (!), and the collaboration of the year between Janelle and BW. And let’s not forget about Juliana Hatfield’s full-length ONJ tribute from last month – pure magic:

April Playlist

March Playlist

I think I speak for everyone who was in Tyler when I say, do yourself a favor and check out some Josh White! I’ve had Pilgrim on repeat since we got back…

February Playlist

Shadows of the Brothers Gibb hang heavy over this one, as well they should. Also, RIP Mark E Smith:

January Playlist

December Playlist: Happy Birthday Baby Jesus 2017

Bringing out the Christmas trappings early actually felt like a necessity this year. Hope you dig the mix.

You can find my other mixes on Enjoy!

November Playlist

Not easy to find tracks that fit the quincentennial theme…

October Playlist

Bonus Track: In light of the horrible news out of Las Vegas today, I commend to you Russell Brand’s video response, “When Mass Murder Becomes Normal – What Does It Tell Us About America?”. If you, like me, think it might be a little soon to be drawing conclusions, just be sure to watch til the end. His new book, Recovery, is out tomorrow.

September Playlist

I didn’t know Jakob Dylan (and co) had been writing songs like that either…

(Belated) August Playlist

First order of post-sabbatical business–other than resisting the (alarmingly strong) temptation to fend off the full range of human emotions re: Saturday–is to thank our amazing team for all their hard work these past three months. The Love and Death issue turned out so top-notch that I’m not sure whether I should be proud or embarrassed… Same with The Very Persistent Pirate! Sheesh. (That book is now available on Amazon, btw – those who’ve experienced its charms are warmly invited to contribute a review over there, as it aids the book’s visibility). If it’s a mercy to be reminded of one’s dispensability, I’ve been mightily blessed.

That said, when it comes to crafting monthly playlists, my colleagues may still have something to learn. To wit:

P.S. Check out the reduced prices for the DC Conference! (Yours truly could not be more pumped).
