140 Spotisfaction Friday 19/11/10 – Dan Herlin

Afternoon all! Sorry for the slight delay in getting the playlist to you today – I had this morning off as holiday and quite short-sightedly forgot to ask anyone to cover! Oops. My apologies. Tonight is episode 3 of The Walking Dead, which is ridiculously exciting – I’ve not been this gripped by a series in a long time. Are you watching it? If so, what are your thoughts so far? Having said that, I guess, I was equally as engaged by Lost season 1, and look how seasons 2 and 3 panned out…

Anyway!

Today’s playlist is by Dan Herlin and is entitled “Paraphrasing”. It’s a long one, but stick with it as it’s very enjoyable – some great versions in there, kudos to you Dan!

Have a lovely weekend, kids, and see you next week.

Morning all. This week is shaping up to be one of the most exciting of the year, in terms of album releases. New to Spotify today we’ve got one of the albums I’ve most been anticipating, Interpol – Interpol. There’s also Les Savy Fav – Root For Ruin, Weezer – Hurley and Summer Camp – Young EP. Between our regular Spotisfaction playlists and these beauties, I’m pretty sure my headphones will adorn my head for the entirety of the week. We’ll try and get reviews to you as soon as possible, which reminds me: if you would like to review for us, please get in touch.

Just wanted to quickly apologise for not getting our newsletter out this week. As I mentioned on Twitter and FB, we weren’t overly happy with the software package we were using, so decided to postpone instead of releasing something we weren’t 100% happy with. It’ll be back soon, and we’ll even throw in a little subscriber-only competition for you, too. In the meantime, please feel free to signup here.

Today’s playlist is by Dan Herlin (his Spotify Social profile is here). It’s a lovely, nostalgic mix including some of my favourite tracks from years gone by. Thanks, Dan.

Take care, folks, and happy listening.
Dave

Dan says:

In any PL, all tracks should be connected by some common denominator, a theme, a niche, that does not necessarily need a name but that shines through out the whole list. It might be that such subtle similarities that makes up affinity are subjective in nature, however I am sure that you all can get what I mean here.

Good afternoon, folks. You may have noticed that our new logo has gone live today. We like it (obviously), but let us know what you think!

This last couple of weeks have been crazy busy, but it’s all been made worthwhile knowing that we’ve got a whole bunch of new ears for our musical evangelism. We’ve even had a number of playlist submissions from all over the Europe, including today’s by Dan Herlin.  This is a fantastic mix, and it’s incredible to be given a glimpse of people’s lives through a playlist – more of this please, interwebs!  Thank you Dan.

Before I hand over to him for his explanatory blurb, I just want to mention that if you have a playlist idea of your own we’d love to publish it. Please do check out our submission guide for info on how you can do that.

Have a lovely one,
Dave

NB. One or two of the tracks don’t work in the UK. I’ve left them in the playlist for our European listeners, and also to help maintain the flow of the playlist if you happen to have a local version of those tracks.

Dan Says:

I believe in niched playlists, where there is a flow between each song and you remember it just like you remember an album. I composed this one during a train-ride between Stockholm and Copenhagen and its named after the Swedish governmental railroad company, Statens Järnvägar.
