Eclecticism is the name of the game on this week’s playlist. There are a couple of longish space jams here, some great garage/ punk tracks, a bit of dystopian shoegaze, some tracks that are bright and boogiful, and even some acoustic sounds. That, in essence, is what this website is about: nothing prescriptive…just great music. Enjoy!
Complekt by Landing
“‘Complekt’ is full of fuzzy guitar and shoegaze references without every tipping over into the raucous, and provides a much needs additional dimension to what’s on offer here; preventing it from tipping over into being too introvert and narrow.”
