Latest top banana playlist

September 2022

It's been an AGE since I posted a new playlist....well, three months. My apologies for slackness, a case of busy day job, plus the return of anxiety and depression. Fortunately, the latter is in hand and time for writing on this site is something I am prioritising. It helps with the anxiety. 

So, here is the latest Black In Black(heath) playlist. 40 songs, including Inhaler, Suede, The Wedding Present, Been Stellar, Pixies, Gas Coombes, Jungle, Phoenix, Orla Garland, beabadoobee, Chappaqua Wrestling, Bessie Turner, Stella Donnelly, Telenova, Starcrawler, Foals, The Beths, Ailbhe Reddy, Whitney, Young The Giant, Pete Yorn, Tami Neilson, Ezra Furman, Joy Downer (feat. Beck), Gretel Hanlyn, Ruti, Two Door Cinema Club, !!!, Simple Minds, Interpol, Gwenno, Broken Bells, Steve Lacy, Metric, Echosmith, Big Joanie, Dead Freights, Djo, Telefis (feat. Will Sergeant) and finally, Will Butler.

Stay safe, x


“The making of a good compilation tape is a very subtle art. Many do’s and don’ts. First of all, you’re using someone else’s poetry to express how you feel. This is a delicate thing.”
