Your Holiday Playlist

I have a wee pressie for you: the latest instalment of my “You May Not Have Heard” playlist. It’s twenty songs that have sonically and emotionally inspired me. The song order is designed to flow using my patented playlist formula 😉 Sorry it’s Spotify only. I’m all ears if anyone knows a way to easily make this available on other platforms.

The Ten Albums Thing

Ok I’ll bite. A few friends requested I do the ten albums thing, but I couldn’t abide by the rules, in particular the “no explanation” one. So here’s a list of ten albums that have influenced me, with a wee bit of explanation. The order is chronological by year of release:

Violent Femmes album cover

You May Not Have Heard (Vol. 1-5)

About 15 years ago I compiled a mix tape to impress a girl. It spawned a series of five CDs containing 100 songs, mainly in the indie-folk-Americana ballpark genre, but rocking out here and there. I have now turned these into a Spotify playlist. Not all songs were available on Spotify, so for some I have substituted an alternative version, and I’ve also added a few Kiss List numbers to the mix. Enjoy and share.
