SOUND⚡WAVES | Volume 8

SOUND⚡WAVES | Volume 8

Who here is starting to grow tired of Christmas music right about now? It's mid-December. We've all spent the past few weeks being bombarded by Band-Aid, trying not to listen to the annoying din of holiday pop in shopping malls, being driven to the point of near-madness by an endless barrage of Bublé, Carey, Bieber, Ariana and a steady, water-torture-like drip of sleigh bell samples.
But we're not total grinches. We promise.
When our pal @DJ.Waves said she wanted to curate a Christmasy playlist without any actual Christmas music on it this month, we were in. Here, in Volume 8 of SOUND⚡WAVES, you'll be able to enjoy tunes that stoke that festive spirit without making you want to bear claw your ears off the side of your head.
Featuring Bob Dylan, Foo Fighters, Allah-Las, Kikagaku, Mad Season, Chris Cornell, City and Colour, America, The Doors, Radiohead, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Arkells, Temples, First Aid Kit, Kurt Vile, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Dusty Springfield and more.
Presented by Steeltown Garage Co.
Curated by DJ Waves

Natsukashii - a vintage Japanese Kayōkyoku playlist by Steeltown

Definitely our strangest playlist yet. Before Japanese Idols and J-Pop there was Kayōkyoku.
