December Radio - The Usefulness of Useless Knowledge

December Radio - The Usefulness of Useless Knowledge

Playing tracks by

Benjamin Clementine, Shamir, Grimes, SOPHIE, Bror Forsgren and more.

There are times when making playlists of wonderful and innovative new pop-ish music seems silly and irrelevant. The bombings in Lebanon, Nigeria, and Paris, the climate meeting that is destined not to achieve much, more evidence of bias against young African Americans...one could go on and on. Does this music stuff even matter?

Anyway, some great new stuff has come out recently. Sophie (a DJ moniker) does a warped ironic take on pop that works as pop at the same time. Raury's new record is amazing— why isn't this guy huge? Benjamin Clementine, whom I included in Meltdown this past August, just won the Mercury prize in UK (the music equivalent to the Booker).

What a great service but in the old days you used to provide a complete playlist. How do I get a list of the tracks I'm listening too. Thanks
