Here’s the second in my series of monthly Spotify playlists with songs that caught my attention for one reason or another the month before.

Highlights this month:

  • An extended block of dark synthwave (Gost, Perturbator, Daniel Deluxe)
  • A decent Yelawolf track
  • Quite a bit of lo-fi hip hop instrumentals
  • A couple of new songs from Download
  • Several pieces from Cristobal Tapia De Veer, who you might recognize for doing the score for lots of good television, including Black Mirror.
  • A bomb hip hop track from Busdriver, Aesop Rock, and Danny Brown that I must have listened to a dozen times already.
You only get thirty-second samples unless you have a Spotify account.

Here’s a Spotify playlist of songs that caught my attention in February of 2019. Notable features:

  • New track from Download, and a beautiful song by Phil Western, who unfortunately passed away in February.
  • A new song from Amon Tobin
  • An extended jaunt through the soundtrack of the show Letterkenny, which yielded a surprisingly rich vein of interesting stuff.
  • Probably more drum and bass than you want.

Hope you find something new and interesting. I’m going to try to do one of these each month, unless I get bored or forget. In which case, don’t hold it against me.
