Playlist Description

I'm a big fan of Daytrotter. Not only because they showcase new artists, but because they share my personal favorite recording philosophy: throw a band into a room with vintage gear, put a few choice mics up, fire up the tape machine, and play the songs. There are no tricks. I mean it. When my band and I were tracking our session we had to play a few of the songs two or three times to get the right feel; and we still had mistakes. But that's exactly what makes it great. I'm tired of hearing the over-produced, quantized, and auto-tuned recordings that have become so readily expected these days. Can you imagine if you heard "Grinnin' In Your Face" by Son House with perfectly in time claps or auto-tuned vocals? It wouldn't have the same magic. Any how, the guys at Daytrotter are doing something cool and fresh and I'm behind it all the way. I picked a few of my favorite songs from the archives I hope you'll dig. Cheers. -JT
