October '16 Playlist by Julia Walck

Recycling this image from last October because one I'm sick and pencils are heavy and two I think it's a pretty rad drawing. 

Oddly enough, I don't have any concerts queued up this month. Maybe that'll give me more time to figure out my costume for Halloween! 

Here's some highlights from the October playlist:

  • I've listened to Jim James's new song "Same Old Lie" probably 20 times. It's a really important song at the moment in this era of gun violence, this shit-show of an election and people actually showing up to vote.
  • Discover Weekly on Spotify has been doing me some favors lately; recently I discovered Rose Windows, Helvetia, and Wooden Shjips through that playlist.
  • Speaking of Spotify, I was browsing my "recommended" section the other day and came across a band called Psychedelic Porn Crumpets. I immediately clicked through to them because, hey who wouldn't click on a name like that?! Psych-rock from Perth is something I needed in my life.

July '16 Playlist by Julia Walck

Today marks a year that I've been doing my monthly playlists accompanied with monthly drawings to go along with 'em. (Apparently I skipped January and February. Those were times of transition for me though so I'm totally OK with that and I'm giving myself a 'get out of jail free' pass).

This month I'm seeing Steven Tyler, (free tickets through work so why not, right?), Mayer Hawthorne, Kyle Craft, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, and BØRNS.  Most of them are free shows through KCRW Summer Nights, which you should totally look into

Here's some highlights from the July playlist:

  • I got instant goosebumps listening to "Middle Names" by Devendra Banhart. Their new album, Ape in Pink Marble debuts in September. 
  • Car Seat Headrest sounds like Tapes 'n Tapes infused with a hint of Modest Mouse. SUPER into it.
  • The day I discovered Kyle Craft, I bought tickets to his show at the Bootleg happening on Friday, July 8. (You should go, too. It's only $9)!
  • White Sea might sound familiar because she used to be in M83.
