I started the playlist because I watched a film set in Argentina about a kid who listened to the Violent Femmes. This was my first exposure to them and within a couple of hours of watching the film I went out and bought their first album and pretty much fell in love with them. They are such an underrated band.
But anywho, for some reason that just put me in the mood to make a playlist of American acoustic/folk/indie music. Something to play in the sunshine and pretend I was somewhere else.
I didn”™t want to just put songs I already knew on it or the artists most famous songs, so I looked up not so obvious choices and other artists I hadn”™t listened to before from recommendations on last.fm etc that I would probably like such as Rilo Kiley, Atlas Sound and Amadou and Mariam, which as luck turns out, i did like. Most of all I wanted it to flow well, create a “mood” or something like that. No sudden drum”™n”™bass suddenly pumping out, but maybe one or two well placed random tracks. I will apologize about the Fleetwood Mac at the end. I don”™t know what is wrong with me at the moment, it”™s embarrassing. I”™m seeking help.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy it
