(compiled Jan 2, 2014)

New playlist inspired by past openers/headliners (Asgeir, The Naked And Famous, Half Moon Run, Washington Irving, Three Blind Wolves, Nathaniel Rateliff, CHVRCHES, Samantha Crain, John Grant, White Lies, Emily Wells, Bear’s Den, This Is The Kit, Farao) and by the soundtrack (most of the songs are by one of my favorite artists Jose Gonzalez) for the epic new movie, ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.’ Ásgeir is by far my most favorite new discovery in music. I have been listening to this Icelandic superstar NON-STOP after seeing him live last month in London. The Icelandic versions are even more beautiful than the ones I fell for in English! Sorry that it’s taken me a while to post this one. I blame the holidays. Cheers to my first playlist of 2014.
