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.

Nuggets 217 – LoFi & Jangly

Nuggets 217 - LoFi and Jangly

 

This is one of my favourite mixes, and now it can be yours too. I particularly like the last Silo Halo track, a girl / boy duet with spidery jangly guitars over the top, and the two tracks from Browns.

Lucy from Tashaki Miyaki is on the cover. They were v. good at SXSW.

The playlist below is still missing a few tracks…
