Playlist of the Week (2018/8)

Today’s POTW, Girls Who Can, is compiled by CeCe Hemmingway, one half of British electronic act Hemmingway.  Based in Chelmsford, Essex, the band have a big, contemporary, sound bridging the gap between electronica and guitar based rock, with David Moriaty’s cutting solos.

It’s worth pointing out that CeCe not only provides the vocals, she’s also a skilled music producer, as you will hear on tracks such as Rise Again. In fact, all the tracks on this playlist are produced by women: let’s hear it for the girls!

This week’s POTW comes from artist The Transient Creep of Olivine, from Texas, who has kindly included Savannah and Spiralesque in their Instrumentals playlist. Again, this playlist features artists that would mostly fall under the radar, so it’s another great one for music discovery.

The Transient Creep’s own music is magical and ever so slightly dystopian – I recommend With the Rabbit, Down the Hole, which conjures up that whole feeling of Alice in Wonderland, which is presumably an intentional reference in the track’s title.

This week’s POTW is by GJART, another independent electronic musician, whose influences overlap a little with mine, as he is inspired by such familiar names as the Human League, Kraftwerk and OMD. If you want to check out his music, here’s a fab video he filmed and provided the music for with a wintry theme. You can also hear his tunes on Musicoin.org.

To give a boost to independent artists, GJART’s compiled the GJART loves #1 playlist of electronic music. (He also has a non-electronic playlist, GJART Loves #2 which I think you’ll also enjoy). The #1 playlist has a slightly industrial electronic vibe in keeping with GJART’s own influences, but is pretty chilled with it.

My POTW this week is the wonderful Ethereal Dreamscapes, from Susan Moss of MoonDreams music, who was the creator behind the first week’s playlist.  I think we have rather similar taste in music, if this list is anything to go by. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it, too.

Playlist of the Week (2018/3)

This week’s POTW is the Haven Yates’ Triple 25 Vol. 1 . I can’t tell you a great deal about Haven, apart from he writes some nice music, does some sound engineering as well as singing, songwriting, guitarring and producing and he seems like a decent bloke!  As you can probably tell from the name of the playlist, Haven has put together a few of these, so watch out for Vol. 4 coming up next week.

The super-eagle-eyed might have spotted one of Haven’s tracks, Find You, on one of my own Spotify playlists, How to Relax.
