Nuggets 342 – Baby Baby

Strange title, long story.

I was sorting through my Itunes music collection the other day (yes, it was raining outside) when I noticed how many songs had the word “baby” in the title; there were about 600 tracks. Great I thought, lets make some playlists. I sorted them into more contemplative tunes, psych 70’s numbers, thrashier tunes and so on.

It has been interesting checking out tunes familiar and unknown, a deep dive into what I have saved over the years.

Here is the first playlist which contains mildly thrashy numbers. All fab of course. If I had to pick a favourite, it would be “Why Not Your Baby” by Gene Clark / Doug Dillard.

Happy New Year.

This mix gets off to a cracking start with an excellent track from D. Vassalotti, then a recently released but old track from The Love Language before the keyboards of Polica start up.

Crystal Stilts have another album out. As you can hear in the interview below, they have taken their time. I love that dreamy jangly sound even though they can be a bit bloodless.

Bingo Trappers is an established Dutch lo-fi band. Manual for a Safe Trip is an excellent track. It’s taken from their 2001 album Juanita. Here it is on Spotify. https://play.spotify.com/album/5Gc39v0xekzfIHrxbQrMuz
