Continuing our series of local shops compiling some of their favorite jams for us, we have a wintertime playlist to get you hot n’ bothered, from Ben Steidel at local vinyl nook Co-Op 87 Records (87 Guernsey Street).
Here’s a playlist of tunes to help us remember that moving your butt, whether on the dance floor or at your desk, is a great way to stay warm during these dark months. Leaning mostly towards slower & smoother grooves, I tried to pick songs that have passed through the store recently, and that are a mix of the rare & obscure, as well as things that you might score in the $1 bin. I also threw in a few new-ish releases. Hopefully they do the trick of evoking warmer climates or the friction of bodies in motion, preferably both!
Kicking off our series of local shops pulling together some of their favorite music for us, we have a mostly-vintage, acoustic-twinged and quite moody playlist from local vinyl source Record Grouch (986 Manhattan Avenue).
This is the kind of playlist you want to gently put on for a chilly and drizzly Sunday morning, while you curl up on the couch with a blanked sipping hot tea and reading zines. And by the time the Donna Summer track hits in the last half, your inner fire will truly be lit.
If you haven’t been down to Record Grouch, the cozy little shop’s got an eclectic mix of r&b, punk, metal, rock, kraut, and psych. You’ll find some rarer gems mixed amongst stuff you really should own but probably don’t have yet. This playlist, in addition to being Fall-themed, is a reflection of some of the things you might find there digging through the bins.Continue reading →
