Playing tracks by
The Souljazz Orchestra, Soil and Pimp Sessions , Serge Gainsbourg & Jane Birkin, Twin Sister, Dinosaur Bones and more.
A playlist that began to take shape after I heard a few interesting songs. The first couple of jazz numbers I heard when I read one of my favourite male fashion blogs (yes I have a favourite male fashion blog).
I also tracked down Ben Kweller after watching the movie "The Change-Up." (don't make fun of me, I already feel like a weirdo jiving on Ben Kweller... and to discover the song on a Jason Bateman film... shameful... but thus is fate)
Then it became a matter of trying to draw some parallels and connecting some dots and this the playlist I sported.
I little melancholy, but at times erotic or desperate. Sprinkled in the forlorn... I heard brightness and rounded out the little set with some Afrobeat.
The idea of December came from Vampire Weekend drinking horchata in the winter. And The Green Arrows are an African band from the 70s. There style reminds me winter holidays in sunny places.
I hope you enjoy the mix.
