I’m reading David Lynch’s book, Catching the Big Fish, right now and I think his otherworldly Twin Peaks shoe-gaze crept into this month’s playlist (if you can’t tell from the dark angel in the cover art). It starts sweet and fierce with “Anything But Love” by my new favorite band, Shunkan, then drifts into inventive prog-rock from Rob Crowe and creepy beach rock from PALMAS.
I’m especially excited to include New York’s own ACES in this playlist (I met the lead singer at this year’s CMJ) as well as Sitting Bitch with Bailey alums Panther Martin. They’ve got a new album out and you’re going to want to listen. Also sorry Drake, Donna Missal puts “Hotline Bling” on a whole new level.
Happy Holidays, put this playlist in one earbud so you don't have to be too cheery this season.
PALMAS - "Take My Hand"
Shunkan - "Anything But Love"
Repato - "Porcelain Girl"
