The "Outlaw Pleasure Bugs" Spotify Playlist (I Hate Radio)
The "Outlaw Pleasure Bugs" playlist
Every Tuesday (or Monday night) I put out a new curated playlist for your listening enjoyment. You can "Just Hit Play" or check out the song list below for Easter Eggs about the bands.
"I Hate Radio" is the name of the podcast I am about to start and it is a play on "I Heart Radio" in opposition to music consolidation.
Last week's playlist was my inaugural protest playlist. I called it the "Gold Plated Alternative Facts" playlist, you can listen to it HERE.
And, as always, Explore, Enjoy, and Share Music!
The Songs (With Easter Eggs)
Just interviewed Fred and we talked about the lyrics to this song, so it led me into and through this playlist.
One of my favorite Arizona bands of all-time and a band that I am still shocked didn't have a larger national impact. Wickedly smart often political lyrics from Steve Larson combined with music perfect for catharsis (or for stomping rattlesnakes).
Communions are from Denmark, but they sound like they could have fit right in here in America during the 80's or early 90's.
I have written a ton about this album over the last two months. I like it...I like it a lot.
Not entirely sold on this album yet, but there are some great tracks.
ATDI has a new album coming soon (at least that is the rumor). Welcome back!
Cloud Nothings mentioned in interviews that this band influenced Dylan Baldi's songwriting. This song is probably as good a demonstration of that influence as any.
Love, love, love this new Priests album. Post-punk and snarling. Great stuff from this DC band.
Have been a big fan of CG for a long time. They have had songs on several previous playlists. The new album is a lot of fun.
If you have followed what happened here in the USA over the weekend you know why I included Josef K (Kafka didn't make music that I know of)
Fun song, just getting to know this band. Have enjoyed what I have heard so far.
Usually, Mexico's Le Buthcherettes are much harsher (which I like) but this is kind of a pop gem and seems to channel 80's era Siouxsie Sioux (in the best possible way).
Been on a Cabs kick lately. What can I say? I love Cabaret Voltaire.
Wrapping It Up
New playlists come out every week. I usually post them on Mondays and promote them on Tuesdays.
The whole point of this exercise is to share new music, so help me spread the word!
