Heavy Rotation: Spring 2017

Hey guys! Here's what I listened to a lot this Spring. As always, songs on these playlists may be explicit. The link: https://open.spotify.com/user/121147540/playlist/5KfODFKAGh2TJV4EiMdf1U

Notes:

I heard "Slow Rider" live when Mountain Stage came to Peoples Bank Theatre here in Marietta. It was my favorite tune of the night. Bridget Kearney (member of Lake Street Dive and Joy Kills Sorrow) and Benjamin Lazar Davis pulled in some African influences, including a special African guitar and a great mid-song meter-perception shift.

Some of my favorite artist discoveries this Spring were Lawrence, Sarah Jarosz (who will be touring with Punch Brothers, another favorite), Sampha, and Shuggie Otis.

I love knowing what people are listening to, so please feel free to share a playlist of your current faves in the comments!
