It’s the middle of December and here in Kentucky it’s 60 degrees. That’s fucked up. Heading up North for the holidays will be a jolt, but I do miss proper Winter.
Anywits. As the year comes to a close, I offer up my final playlist for the year.
Such an Ancient Game
My previous playlist is still getting a lot of traction in my wandering about this tiny town, but this one is a bit more Winter appropriate.
Clairity’s song ‘DNA’ is brilliance. Her EP Alienation is of middling quality to my ears. I’m a fan of the synth so ‘DNA’ and ‘Velco’ are what pull me in. Discovering she’s wicked young means we can hopefully look forward to a long career from her. Her voice is stellar and I rather love her lyrics. She’s kinda awesome.
Also, Anna von Hausswolff’s song ‘Stranger’ from her album The Miraculous is superb.
In fact, that entire album is a gem. It’s like God Speed You Black Emperor, Siouxsie Sioux, & Lisa Gerrard from Dead Can Dance decided to raise a child together.
Other albums whose songs haven’t found their way onto any of my playlists but that I can’t seem to shake are Violent Mae’s Kid
As 2015 slouches towards its completion, I’m hoping to nestle these songs between my ears as I ever so slowly attempt to get the Spotify/iTunes algorithms to actually recommend something I want to listen to…
