Another week, another new edition of the playlist.

This week’s edition starts out showing exactly what these collections of music is all about. Starting out with the noisy experimental metal of Human Failure, then immediately takes a sharp turn into Xenia Rubinos’ wonderfully quirky pop, before turning onto a sideroad with the jazzy, doomy weirdness of HORE. There is no roadmap – and that’s the way I like it.

For the rest of the year, I will be ending of each edition of the playlist with a track featuring Chris Eckman, the extemely underrated (in my view) guitarist/singer/founder of The Walkabouts and much more. Consider it a payback for all the hours I spent in the company of his music. For this week, I turn my attention to his his duo with fellow Walkabout Carla Torgerson, Chris & Carla.
