2018 Playlist Retrospective

Spotify I keep a running playlist where I add all of the new music I come across that I dig. I should add that “new music” usually means new releases, but it also extends to newly discovered music (to me) or tracks that I feel a particularly strong pull to at the time. Just in case you’re wondering why I have a song off Aphex Twin’s … Continue reading 2018 Playlist Retrospective

Frankles Monthly Mix #10

Welcome to Barium There’s so much to get excited about with this edition of my running monthly-ish playlist, I almost don’t know where to start. Except that I have to start with Burns, the new song from George FitzGerald. A masterful, powerful piece of work, Burn is…just listen to it. You can read more about it here if you like.

Top 89 | Ballot Confirmation | 89.3 The Current. Boy, that’s a lame ‘Share.’  I’d fantasized that upon clicking the “Share this via WordPress” button on the page it would magically transfer my Top 10 songs of 2010 selections.  Instead it provides a link to a page that’s useless even to me once I close it out.  So it goes.  I’ll have to do this … Continue reading Top 10 of ’10 | for 89.3 The Current

Part II. I’m definitely not as happy with this one. It doesn’t feel refined enough. Too rough. Too many maybe songs….potential throwaways. I might cinch it up at some point, take out the throwaways and just have a happier, shorter mix. An edit. Tracklist: Busdriver – Yes Get Up Nobody – Wake Up and Smell the Millenium Radiohead – Videotapez (Amplive Remix feat Del Tha … Continue reading By Air
