2015 has wrapped up, and many of us are setting resolutions for the New Year. On Vinyl Music offers some major keys to success to help you ring in the New Year: the resolution of self-love, a bottomless glass of champagne, and of course, our weekly staff playlist.
If you’re like me and you’re home for winter break, spending most of your time away from your folks even though you’re staying in their house (thanks for moving into my old room, Mom…), some music to relax to can be some real fun.
As winter settles in Austin, Texas, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) or the winter blues is present in many including myself. Sometimes, the best remedy is to hunker down in bed and listen to good tunes with someone (your dog) or something (your vibrator) you love. Here’s a playlist for your SAD snuggles and slumber.
Curating the Weekly Staff Picks is probably my favorite thing to do with On Vinyl Music because it forces me to continue to dig deeper into the vast mechanisms of Austin’s cesspool music scene. This week, I decided to culminate songs from artists who not only warm the soul but also songs you can bring home for the holidays, pop on the stereo, and play for your family.
This week’s playlist is a varied bunch, starting with a modern take on the old-school punk sound with “I Don’t Give a Shit” by the late Ape-Shits‘s (may they rest in peace) Shawn Carpetbagger. It sounds nasty, it sounds rough, it sounds good.
If you’re lethargically residing on your couch due to mass turkey consumption and want to rid your body of tryptophan, then this week’s playlist is what you need. This playlist is dedicated to dancing your Thanksgiving turkey off.
Fall is here, and even though in Austin that means 50 degree weather one day and 80 degrees the next, the feelings that come along with the transitory season remain the same.
Step into this technicolored, bass-bumpin’ hotel elevator with me, as we go through fourteen levels of experimental hip-hop from some of the best artists Austin, Texas has to offer. These tracks have a tendency to make you feel like you are in the coolest Hilton hotel lobby of all time.
This week’s culmination of songs is a post-rock aural journey, dripping with psychedelic overtones and overdriven guitars from the likes of Ghostbunny‘s “Static Love” and Hunter Jones‘s “Laurel.” For those who would trade the psychedelic trip for a mosh pit, Otis the Destroyer and The Bravo hold it down with two biggest rock anthems of the playlist, “Goldfame” and “Everybody Needs a Friend.“
