The February Playlist



Vol. 3: Spring Around the Corner?


EVERY time I think I have music figured out...

IN THIS PHOTO: Little Simz

it keeps throwing up surprises and left-turns. I am always excited when a new song comes out of nowhere with no fanfare or build-up. It is always fascinating discovering a nugget of audio gold that you were not expecting. I guess we are used to those artists who love to hype themselves and create a media circus. Against that tide are musicians who are making music and trying to make people happy. I guess music is a contrasting and polemic profession that is never short of wonder and shock. This edition of The February Playlist has a nice balance of new mainstream tracks and those lesser-heard songs worth time and attention. Have a listen and enjoy another full and frantic selection of new songs.

The Valentine’s Day hoo-ha has ended and the shops are practically stocking up for Easter! It is hard keeping a track of the changing celebrations and commemorations: one day you are in winter and finishing Christmas; now it seems we are hurtling to spring. Keeping things settled and grounded is new music which continues to bring sunshine and beautiful visions. This week has seen fewer mainstream tracks released – more from the underground and new acts – but the coming weeks promises more from the big-hitters of music.
