NS Playlist New(ish) Tunes

Playlist: New(ish) Tunes – September 2017

Gadzooks! Quite a bit of new music that has been released recently – particularly from an eclectic range of well-known names (U2, Arcade Fire, The National, Jack Johnson, Tori Amos). Then there are some new tunes from lesser knowns but still faves of mine (Iron & Wine, Belle & Sebastian, Stars).

PS – Try and listen to St. Vincent’s “New York” without getting it stuck in your head (warning explicit language).

And check out “New Music Matters” most recent playlist here for more new cool tunes out this Fall!

Playlist – Graduation Tunes

It was high school graduation time last week around here. On a drizzly Friday June afternoon, we enjoyed the pomp and circumstance, watching our son receive his diploma, switch the tassel, and throw his graduation cap in the air. I can’t believe that we have a child going to college in the fall. I don’t know about you, but I feel as though I only just graduated myself a few years ago. So as I always do at times of emotion and significance, I “playlist”. Here’s a crowd-sourced list of tunes for that very special time in a young person’s life when anything seems possible! Good luck to grads everywhere!

Playlist: May Mex Mish Mash

This playlist was inspired in Mexico earlier this month, when my mom started digging on Thievery Corporation playing in the background at a Sayulita beach cafe. We (my mom, sisters and I) were chilling out for the afternoon enjoying the weather, taking surfing lessons, getting massages and very much enjoying lots of coffee, cervezas and margaritas (not necessarily in that order). So enjoy “May Mex Mish Mash”, which brings a south of the border feel along with some new chill tunes.
