Matthew Dear Playlist

Posted by Jakub

With Matthew Dear’s recent release of his new album Black City and 10+ years under his belt of releases under different monikers I felt like the time was right to share what this man has actually created over the years which is an inviting song writing style for a dancefloor and the soundtrack to a night with friends. Moody at times, hidden storytelling and hypnotic rhythms that touch on similarities of David Byrne/Brian Eno work, I really believe in Matthew’s sound as something revolutionary, so here’s an 18 song playlist of songs that have made my day at one point of my life.


With strong art direction by Will Calcutt and recent covers by Michael Cina of alias like Jabberjaw, Matthew has always had a tight branding campaign that not only shows his personality but is always so thought thru and cared for.


I really hope everyone can find the beauty in Audion, False, and Jabberjaw, those songs seem long and repetitive to a fresh new pair of ears but even after the first listen to songs like Just A Man I feel like there’s a natural instinct to enjoy that organic sounding drive, swelling and circular feeling the songs gives off.


OLDE ENGLISH SPELLING BEE Playlist

For some relaxing diverse lo-fi I don’t think it gets any better than the output of Brooklyn’s Olde English Spelling Bee. I was introduced to them by grabbing up the Ducktails LP and fell back in love with them after hearing Stellar OM Source, enough talk I hope you enjoy this label and if you like anything by them buy direct and support a special label like this.

Mark Kozelek Playlist

Posted by Jakub


This might be a departure from what I post most days but I can’t pretend that this isn’t some of the strongest song writing out of my generation and maybe even the generation before me. Mark Kozelek is a pure talent when it comes to setting a tone and feeling that most can’t control when they hear his songs. Deadly as this playlist might seem for some since a beautiful sunny weekend is in store for the east coast I just think it needed to be done.

I didn’t include my 2 favorite Mark Kozelek songs since i’ve already posted them which are Mistress and Duk Koo Kim, if you need more then the wait isn’t too long, Sun Kil Moon’s next LP Admiral Fell Promises is slated for 7/13.

**Other artist specific playlist: Cocteau Twins
