[Last Thursday’s Playlist] New Music Night VIII at River Gods

Posted on December 23, 2012 at 10:16 am | No Comments

Well, seeing as the world didn’t end, I suppose I should share up Thursday’s playlist from the eighth edition of New Music Night over at River Gods in Cambridge, MA. A lovely evening all-around, independent of the fine song selections made by myself and Mr. Jay Clicky Clicky. His playlists are right over here. And yes, there were holiday songs involved… but only a few. Unavoidable, really.

Lots of listening links for your eyes and ears to follow below…
