Vol.4: Where The Streets Have Hard Rain

_______

ALTHOUGH this is the sparsest Playlist

of the year; I feel it is one of the most interesting, too! Being so close to Christmas Day; I was not expecting a lot of new releases to arrive. Not only is there a stunning Bob Dylan cover from Laura Marling – there are new releases from Good Charlotte, Migos and ALICE. Videos from Björk, Katy Perry and PALE WAVES are out and, whilst there are few big-name releases this close to Christmas; the arrival of two new tracks from The Streets has been turning heads – I have featured Sometimes I Hate My Friends More Than My Enemies. It is an unexpected from Mike Skinner – and makes one wonder whether a future album from The Streets is a possibility!

I guess that is a nice Christmas treat and a great way of kicking off 2017’s penultimate Playlist. Take a listen to the new treats and tunes; the varied mixes and great videos; the blend of Christmas sounds and traditional releases – showing music is not going to rest; regardless of the time of year!

I was not expecting a Bob Dylan cover and a new track from The Streets at any point this year – not least a couple of days before Christmas! It is another unexpected and surprising week of music that has provided plenty of curiosity, pleasure and energy. I am letting The Streets’ new cuts sink in and it is exciting seeing where that can go – the best of the rest is an exciting and interesting brew that bodes well for 2018…
