We’re still full of resolute spirit a new calendar year can bring on here at Reckless Yes towers and one of our new leaves to be turning was to get back to bringing you the best new music we’ve been hearing. We used to be proper on this when we were doing the old Rumble for Radio Andra but not having a weekly submission deadline hanging over us has really allowed us to slack off. Soz.
New music playlist – January
Anyway…let’s not dwell on that. Let’s get on with the positive bit of sharing new music. We’ve decided to mainly do this through the medium of Spotify – because it’s convenient albeit pretty shitty in terms of financial recompense for creative effort. We’ve created a playlist of tracks we’ve been loving so far this year and we intend to update this each month with a batch of new tracks for you too. Listen to it here and make sure you are following it to hear our updates!
This month we’ve added tracks from Dream Wife, Sylvan Esso, Peach Club, Hookworms, ShitKid, Soccer Mommy, EMA, U.S Girls, Frankie Cosmos, Fu Manchu, Gwenno, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, and loads more…
However…that’s not all…because a lot of the bands we are loving listening to are not on Spotify (and not all of you lot use it) we’ll also be bringing you an mid-month update from elsewhere around the interwebs. We’re inspired by the likes of K-Tel on this so think of it that way – a few bands you can push your pocket money at and be delighted by the sonic treats you get in return.
