When I started AudioPerfecta, I imagined myself handing a random stranger a pair of headphones and saying “Listen to this!” Since then, “Listen To This” has become the actual motto of AudioPerfecta. With that in mind, I want to introduce you all to some of my favorite artists. Here’s the catch, you may not know these names.
Oh sure, you probably recognize a couple of artists. The Decemberists, Belle & Sebastian, Fiona Apple. Still, there’s a lot of names that, unless you go out and seek music not played on radio stations, you won’t know. So, think of this week’s playlist as a bit of music sampler. This week’s playlist is me, reaching across a table and handing you a pair of headphones. Listen to artists such as Moonlight Breakfast, Kathryn Calder, and The Innocence Mission. Enjoy the music of Blonde Redhead, The Magnetic Fields, and Trespassers William. Grove to the funk of Dressy Bessy, and dance to Ladytron.
All I ask is that you keep an open mind and an open ear. While you might not like all these artists, you will love at least a few.
Listen to this again!
What’s coming up this week? It’s a big surprise! OK, ok, I have no idea right now. This new job has me hopping and I haven’t quite adjusted my writing schedule. However, I will have something this Saturday. I promise. Maybe it will be a cover vs original, maybe an artist exploration, or maybe some deep, profound musical criticism or commentary. I guess I’ll know when I write it. Yeah, whatever. You’re not interested in what might be, just that something happens.
Maybe you have a special request. Why not let me know in the comments? Or, better yet, tell me on Facebook or Twitter. If I like your idea, I just might write about it this coming Saturday. Well, probably not this Saturday, but soon!
Have a great week everyone. And listen to this!
