It’s Friday. It’s the weekend! It’s time for some brand new music!
The trouble with many playlists on Spotify, including most of Spotify’s own playlists, is there’s never any passion in curating them. That comes across in the final playlist. Sure, Spotify will argue that you’re supposed to listen to them on ‘shuffle’ mode but that’s just laziness. Any decent playlist should be curated in a way that the music flows without anything poking out like a pussy spot on the end of your nose.
It’s really off-putting when you’re listening to a playlist and it’s grooving. You’re enjoying the vibe when suddenly a track pops in there that throws off the groove. It’s jarring and it’s fucking annoying. At least it is for me. That’s why I tend to prefer listening to playlists from people who take what order they place the tracks. Quite often, actually, most of the time that’s from smaller playlisters.
I like to think that when I curate a playlist I do it with the same care and attention. I like my playlists to flow with a certain vibe, whatever grooves with the track that came before. I’ve been that way ever since I was creating my own mixtapes with my Panasonic boom box (yes, I am that old).
And so to the main feature of today’s post. I have curated a brand new playlist that has a pretty rebellious vibe to it. It’s music that sticks it to the mainstream. Music for people like me and if you’re still reading this, music for people like you too.
So, it is my pleasure and privilege to introduce to you my latest Spotify playlist Rebel Rock Rebels! (Yeah ok, the name is rather tongue-in-cheek but you won’t forget it easily). As you’ll see (and hear), I like to sprinkle most of my playlists with a mix of new and established artists because I like to think that it helps to give more context. Have a listen, give it a save, give it a download and then follow all of the artists that you haven’t heard of before. If there’s someone else you think will like this playlist, send them the link. The gift of music is always one of my favourite gifts to receive.
Let me know how this playlist made you feel. Comments are open below but if you’d rather find me on social media here’s where you can find me:
Have an awesome weekend and rock-eth the fuck-eth out-eth!
