“Summer hits vol 1” is not only serving as a mere summary of music releases of the past two months. These tunes are here to stay with you for the rest of the summertime; to make it last longer, at least in your heart. This playlist has summer written all over it.
The question remains, what is there to raise your against when you live and create in a free country. The main concerns of this generation include the ugliness of the omnipresent consumerism, the lethargic state of the middle classes looking for constant amusement, the emergence of the far-right ideology, Catholic church’s influence on Polish society and many faces of everyday hate be it homophobia, xenophobia or sexism
There’s something punk rock about February. It’s short and to the point. In the spirit of the month, I’m gonna keep things brief. As per usual, I have used all my sources to find, collect and examine the new sounds collected here. Next step was to sift through all the noise and select only quality stuff.
It may not be the end of 2018 yet, but chances are that for the next couple of weeks you will be seeing a lot of the-end-of-the-year rankings and lists popping up in the magazines, blogs and your social media feeds. Personally, I don’t endorse this practice. “Hold with your judgments till the year ends!”
To me, selecting and sharing these tracks with you is a way of cataloging the best of the best each month. It, also, somehow resembles the time I used to collect tapes. I gather something worth keeping and I display it just like I did with cassettes on my shelves back in the day. Fun fact: including this selection, the meter currently clocks around 3300 songs collected since the first mixtape. We’ve come a long way, baby.
