Curating a Christmas playlist actually worth listening to is high art. In fact, it's so rare, so elusive, so unlikely that it borders on sorcery. A sort of modern shamanism practiced only by musical witch doctors under the veil of darkness, as they comb the mighty depths of Spotify, speaking in tongues, screaming incantations, searching for the musical ingredients for their next great holiday brew.
DJ Waves has been called a witch before. We were there for it. She was stoked. She might've even blushed. So it's no shock that she concocted this rad but festive playlist that we affectionately refer to as Merry Crank'mas.
Featuring Chuck Berry, Julian Casablancas, The Ronettes, Earth Wind & Fire, Ramones, The Satans Pilgrims, Bloodshot Bill, James Brown, Perry Cuomo, The Drifters, Peggy Lee and more

The Bikeriders by Jeff Nichols and starring Jodie Comer, Austin Butler, Tom Hardy, and Norman Reedus, has been entertaining audiences for months now. But many people are surprised to hear that the film was actually inspired by a 1968 photo series by American photographer and filmmaker Danny Lyon.

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.
