    The Essential Modest Mouse Playlist

    by Jennifer Jonson

    Most Modest Mouse fans usually fall into one camp or another: the early diehards who followed them through cult status all the way to mainstream alt-rock fame, and the millennials who hopped on the bandwagon with the ubiquity of 'Float On' and 'Ocean Breathes Salty' [read more]

  • The Essential Beach Boys Playlist

    The Essential Beach Boys Playlist

    by William Tomer

    One of the greatest music tragedies in recent memory would be the devolution of the Beach Boys into a state-fair caliber oldies band. Having played everything from the MontBleu Casino in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, USA to the Riverfest in Beloit, Wisconsin, USA, the band’s deterioration in quality is often attributed to the absence of Brian Wilson.

    The Essential St. Patrick's Day Playlist

    by Joe Carroll

    If you're Irish, have Irish blood running through your veins, or once bumped into an Irish person on the tube, you may feel compelled to spend the 17th March celebrating St Patrick's Day. Whether you're honouring the good man who rid Ireland of snakes by spending the whole day down the pub or just grabbing a pint after work, no St Patrick's Day would be complete without some fantastic Irish music.

  • A Generation of Donut Addicts: J Dilla's Legacy

    A Generation of Donut Addicts: J Dilla's Legacy

    by Patrick Lyons

    Since Dilla's untimely death, the music world has seen arguably more tributes, posthumous releases, fan art, and homages directed at him than any other rap producer of his era. I say "music world" because it's important to note that, while Dilla rarely stepped outside the realm of hip-hop/R&B in his time on Earth (here's one amazing outlier though), his influence has spread to genres far and wide.

    Plastic Platform [C83]: Late Ride

    "This is the mix that Judy Jetson listens before going to meet her crush at a house party, and again when she is later that night reviewing every single moment and detail in her head." [read more]

  • The Essential John Carpenter Playlist

    The Essential John Carpenter Playlist

    by Josh Brown

    If you've ever watched a John Carpenter film without knowing who made it, you'll sure as hell be reliably informed within the first ten minutes. If not because of the distinctly cool and obviously eccentric Carpenter tone, then the fact that his name pops up over about 90% of the opening credits. [read more]

    Ones To Watch 2015 Catch Up Playlist (January)

    by The 405

    We preferred not to predict anything. Instead, we opted to go for a list of Ones To Watch in 2015. This was a list of artists whom we thought deserved your attention, deserved recognition, and for whom – with all the droplets of hope and love in our little ol' hearts – we wished all the best and every success in the coming year.

  • The Essential Belle and Sebastian Playlist

    The Essential Belle and Sebastian Playlist

    by Chris Taylor

    Belle & Sebastian are almost like a comfort blanket covered in disco lights: reassuring and warm but also not afraid of letting their hair down every once in a while to celebrate the great things in life. Murdoch's lyrics paint wonderfully vivid scenes of outcasts, dreamers and those just generally unsure about life. [read more]
