Morning all. Running a wee bit late today, so I won’t bore you with much blurb – let’s just rip back the blurby wrapper and get to the juicy, gooey playlist centre yeah?
Today’s playlist is from Tomorrow’s Sounds Today / Classics Collected czar, James Battin and is entitled “Around the World In 18 Tunes”. Ta, fella.
So, today I don my top hat and Phileas Battinski invites you to come around the world in 18 tunes. The concept behind this playlist was to really try and demonstrate that there is a huge wealth of music out there in the world, and often in places you might not expect to look. Most of the general public, I worry, are out there being drip fed their X Factor pop pound spinners and they often don’t have a look around them.
I’ve chosen 18 tracks from 18 different locations to highlight that you really can find some great music out there in that world of ours. In this first run I’ve not even gone that far off spectrum and tried to include more established acts – so as not to go all out on the first trip.
Grab your passports and get ready as we visit the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Sweden, Iceland, Japan, China, Brazil and more.
