Unheard Album Project: January 2017

One of my resolutions this year was to listen to a record I’d never heard before, new or old, every day. I’ve kept it up for all of January and here’s a list of what I’ve heard (below the cut), and a playlist taking a track from each. Since there’s no guarantee I’ll like a record I can’t pretend that everything on the playlist is solid gold but I had fun sequencing it and attempting to give it some kind of coherence.

    Rose Elinor Dougall’s “Stellular” is very good. You may remember her from the Pipettes, or the Mark Ronson album from 2010.

    Also, I love that Fairport Convention LP.
