Last week during the pledge drive for public radio station WFUV, listeners were asked to submit their "essential music," a list of five bands/artists, along with their donation. This is clearly a clever way to survey the audience, but it also got me thinking of sharing more of my personal faves in playlist form. In prior posts, I have linked to my LCD Soundsystem Faves
playlist with the news the band will be releasing another album after breaking up in 2011 (and an update: the band has signed with the behemoth Columbia Records!) Plus I posted my David Bowie Faves
playlist after this legend's untimely death.
So here are links to some more playlists of "essential music" found on my Spotify account @NewMusicMatters
, dig in!
Talking Heads Faves
Arcade Fire Faves
Flaming Lips Faves
Franz Ferdinand Faves
New Order Faves
The National Faves
Band of Horses Faves
