SOUND⚡WAVES | Vol #16

SOUND⚡WAVES | Vol #16

It ain't country. In ain't rock. And it ain't rhythm and blues. It's rockabilly. And it's a mashup, a synthesis, a lovechild if you will. An amalgam of all three with a good amount of western swing, boogie-woogie, jump blues, twang, and electric blues thrown' in fer good measure.

When DJ Waves said Volume 16 was gonna be an all-out rockabilly playlist, we swooned. Black and white visions of Carl Perkins gyrating in a pair of blue suede shoes danced across our mind's eye. Our foot began to tap uncontrollably. Our lip curled up. But Waves didn't stop at just the classics. In Volume 16, she weaves through the ages and presents over an hour and a half of rockabilly radness.

From Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline and Elvis to Chris Isaak, Charlie Sexton and The Stray Cats all the way up to JD McPherson, Pokey Lafarge, Brian Setzer, Hot Boogie Chillun, and Montreal's own Bloodshot Bill.

Natsukashii - a vintage Japanese Kayōkyoku playlist by Steeltown

Definitely our strangest playlist yet. Before Japanese Idols and J-Pop there was Kayōkyoku. A genre of music influenced heavily by western rock and roll and usually had easy to follow melodies, sentimental narratives and straight forward lyrics designed to be relatable to the everyday Japanese person.
