Unheard Album Project: February 2017

FT + New York London Paris Munich1 comment • 217 views

These are 27 of the 28 albums I listened to for the first time in February as part of this project. (The 28th, Joanna Newsom’s Divers, is not on Spotify: it would have been represented by “Time, As A Symptom”). The pleasure for me in the project is discovery: the pleasure for me in the playlist is sequencing, and hopefully this mix makes a kind of sense.

    Good shout on The Other Side of Town, an underrated cut on that album (I seem to vaguely remember an ILM poll in which I was the only voter for it). Lush and supremely dynamic.
