In January I listened to a lot of new music. Most of the artists in this month’s playlist are represented by just one song, but some favorite records from the month included Rogue Wave’s Nightingale Floors album, and Simon White’s Silver Silver and Yakiimo albums. This playlist clocks in at just about 3 hours. Enjoy!
Damon Albarn, “Everyday Robots”
