My heavy rotation playlist in 2016

The one time of the year I use #Spotify My heavy rotation for 2016 is strongly influenced by newer albums, a lot of them featured by NPR Music (God Bless them and Bob Boilen) Otherwise there are some tracks not available on Spotify, for instance anything ever published by ECM or Atoms for Peace... I would recommend you to go out there, visit a record store - if you still know where one is; alternatively listen to music on services where the artists are as much as possible in charge - Spotify does not qualify - and consider buying music albums (you name the format) as the best option for a present for the holiday season to your beloved.

Braxton Cook's new single

I have been following this musician since a year, I think. This one single impressed me since it came out as a surprise, completely.

enough is enough
if it is only enough, it will never be enough
but if you think it will never be enough, it might turn out to be the right thing

My record for the Potsdam Island Swimming

Yesterday it was not so much fun...
Too many unfair behaviours by pool swimmers during the competition
I scored my best time by far, which is very surprising to me too

Female Punk and Their Influences

Pitchfork has never been my favourite source of reviews, still its website is so rich in audio and written content that a lot of inputs come from there anyway...so be it.
As this article a friend of mine forwarded yesterday.

This morning, with the flea market down here, I listen to The Raincoats (and put The Slits on queue).
Their album Odyshape is anything but punk though.
Even better
