Lost & Found 32: Alt Hallows

It's been a while since we've made a playlist and Halloween felt right to put 1 together.  If you're looking for some darker sounds, you'll find some fun in here. "Alt Hallows"a little psych, a little punk (proto and post), a lot of vibes with some appropriate happiness sprinkled in. It's not your typical monster mash Halloween mix it's a bit more… well, we won't worry about defining it, give it a play.

Lost & Found 25: MattyC

This playlist comes to you from a dear friend, @mattycolston. The first time watching this performance was one of the most memorable DJ sets I've ever seen. Technique meeting flow, swiftly switching records from milk crate to turn table with a seamless mix with me trying to find a moment to slip him, Mezcal Vago, in a glass just to give thanks for helping people move.:In this mix, we throw the word 'eclectic' out a lot, but this is the most we've ever meant it. Mostly upbeat, while still having that hazy summer vibe that would be oh-so-perfect for any backyard bbq or pool party. Too many genres to list here, but too good not to listen to. Thanks, Matty!

Lost & Found 24: No English Please

The globalization of the internet age has brought the far corners of the earth closer together than ever before. Whether it be via food, TV, or even travel, the world is a lot smaller place than it used to be. The one area that has lagged behind is music.

While there are some genres that have crossed over, the Western world stays pretty focused on English. Even when artists try to cross over, they will make an English version of their songs in order to fit the audience. But have we ever challenged ourselves to listen to music in its' native tongue?'

No English Please' is a collection of tracks that crosses several genres and multiple countries, with the common thread of them all being in their native language. Japan, Mexico, and a whole lot of stuff in between. Hope you enjoy and discover something new!

Lost & Found 15: Tropicália

Tropicália is Brazil's sister genre to the US & UK's psychedelia movement of the late 60s and early 70s. Shaped by the same influences as bands like Sgt-Peppers-era Beatles, Beach Boys, and others, this genre also incorporates the flavors of samba, bossa nova, and other tropical subgenres.

It is easily identified by its heavy poly-rhythms, joyous vocals, and general tropical feel, but with a definite LSD-slant that should sound familiar to anyone that knows its Western counterparts. If there ever was a genre of music that makes you want to dance with a smile on your face while sipping a caipirinha, this is the one.

Lost & Found: Modern Classics

The soundtrack to the modern cocktail revolution, mostly centered around the NYC scene between 1999 and the early 2010s. This evolving playlist will grow over time, so pretend it's an iPod and smash the shuffle button.

Including familiar bands like Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Strokes, but also a lot of the bands that influenced them during their formative years (e.g. Jonathan Fire Eater, The Rapture). NYC was the center of the music world during this period, trying to recapture the magic of the 70s punk scene but for a new generation. This was the last great DIY scene, pre-Garage Band.

Steven's liked & found

A sonic bouquet of jazz fusion, blues, and hip hop. From the poetry of Gil Scott-Heron and some of Miles Davis's⁠ final work while he was still living to some newer jazz artists that are creating interesting genre-clashing sounds.
