Here’s a look at my current listening trends.
Last week I started working my way through my New Wave Queue playlist on Spotify. This is one of my monster listening queues, which I’ve populated with artists’ full catalogs. I started making these playlists back when I DJed as sort of a musical study tool.
I wasn’t hugely fond of The Cult. I can’t remember who told me to listen to them, but they showed up in my New Wave queue so I listened to them. I also ended up listening to most of Morrissey‘s catalog before realizing that the songs I liked were covers of T Rex and Bowie (go figure).
Mark and I saw Blink 182 live last week, so my listens have been sprinkled with so much guilty pleasure pop punk — including their surprise (to me) hit new album, California. We enjoyed their pyrotechnic-laden set from nosebleed seats. 🙂
