Instant special new (Eclectic Playlist Series 8.10)

Instant special new (Eclectic Playlist Series 8.10)

Playing tracks by

Freedy Johnston, Caro Emerald, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Scorched Earth, Bill Nelson and more.

Even as there are 14 artists on this month's playlist who had not yet appeared in any EPS mix to date, you'll also find here a handful of all-time favorites who are now among the most often featured musicians in the eight-plus years these lists have been operational. So I guess it's an intriguing blend of the old and new both chronologically and aesthetically. In any case, the all-time favorites in question--Sam Phillips, They Might Be Giants, Jane Siberry, and Cassandra Wilson--are all truly among my personal musical heroes through the decades; I'm kind of startled and delighted to find them all together here. And although we live, it would seem, under graver and graver collective shadows, I ended up with a number of songs this month that are not just peppy but in a few cases rather playful---in search of the kinder light, you might say. Besides which, we lose our playfulness and there's not much hope for us. Man o nam indeed. For more info visit https://fingertipsmusic.com/?p=22788
