This playlist holds an incredibly diverse sampling of tracks lovingly selected from albums newly released this week. They appear in no order of grand significance, rather they are listed here alphabetically by artist to enhance the joyously random experience that is the Audio Bonsai: Fresh Cuts playlist.
Our mission over the next week, we as curators and you as active participants in the musical community, is to bring order to the chaos. No, not the order imposed on us by the major labels. Not the order dictated by back room payola broadcast deals. We, together, will take a simpler route to audio contentment.
We will listen.
We will listen and enjoy.
And we will voice our opinions about what we enjoy.
For our part, we will select one track per day from this beautifully chaotic list to feature as our Song of the Day. Each song so selected will be added to the “Songs of the Day” playlist on Rdio and Spotify. Follow that playlist for a more curated new-music experience.
How, you might ask, can you become more involved with this evolution from chaos to order? Follow the Spotify ReFresh playlist or the Rdio Refresh Playlist. While the playlist above is THIS week’s newest music, the ReFresh playlist is an ever-changing mixtape doppelganger that is gutted and rebuilt every week so that it is always THE newest. The current Fresh Cuts playlist will automatically arrive on you listening device so that you can focus on the important part…the listening.
