95 Spotisfaction Friday – 6th August 2010 – Rhys Howell

Afternoon folks. I”™ve spent a good portion of today listening to two local, home-grown acts – the mighty John Madden and Tom Mitchell, and our very own Ben”™s band Stressechoes. As such, I”™m feeling pretty awesome right now.

After Wednesday”™s call-to-arms, we”™ve added a few new people to our team and you can expect to see the first few posts from them shortly. There”™s still time to get involved with Spotisfaction, so if you”™re interested check out this post and give me a shout via email or Twitter.

Today”™s playlist is by Rhys, and is a lovely, meandering mix perfect for a Friday afternoon.

Love, hugs and mealy bugs.

I quite like it in playlists when the jump from one feeling or sound to another. It keeps me on my toes and stops me from just letting them music turn into background noise. That”™s my excuse anyway for the almost random nature of these tracks.
