Early Fall New Music Playlist (stream)

by Jane Jansen Seymour

3 September 2010

Though not quite fall, there's too much new music out there not to turn the calendar for another playlist.
 

For the past five years I have created playlists for myself and shared them this friend who suggested I start my blog—NewMusicMatters and now I’m also writing for PopMatters. In this era of pick and choose selections off MySpace, iTunes and such, it’s almost odd that the concept of a playlist has even survived. But there really is something about a self-contained listening session. It’s always good to start off strong with a “don’t you love how music can move you” song, maybe even enough to get up and boogie. From there I like to meander along different moods until some kind of reflective closure wraps up the playlist.

Wasn’t sure whether to call this next group late summer or early fall 2010. I know it’s not technically autumn, but the acorns are dropping and the sun isn’t shining as strong as it was a few weeks ago. It’s all about sharing the love of new music with each selection, plus of course the craft of compilation which is always fun.
