Pirate Transmission 7: Strange Dollaz Down Lost Halls #Spotify Playlist
I put more time and effort into these playlists than anything else I do on this site. I actually work on them all week, changing songs in and out, changing the order, and trying to make them reflect what I love about music.
Part of what I love is exploration, and every week includes artists that are new to me. I try to include new albums, new artists, and songs from new albums by new artists. Part of what I love is placing music in context. As a result, I try to ground the new music I include in the context of some of the older music that inspired it (and me).
A huge part of my project is trying to have as much fun as I do listening to the wider world of music (the world beyond record label consolidation). Like the Clash said, I am sending transmissions from a "pirate satellite."
You can either "Just Hit Play" or hit play and click on each artist's bolded name for even more information (below the playlist).
Last but not least, the playlist names are an homage to Captain Beefheart.
