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.
Personally, I’m equally proud and amazed of the variety and the quality of the material gathered here. The sheer volume of it, reaching nearly 130 tracks, proves there are a lot of good things brewing in Poland at the moment, musically at least. I am hoping this playlist will get you to further investigate Polish sounds, past and current. Perhaps you’ll get to visit Poland in near future to experience the music at firsthand. If not you still have your headphones and this mixtape. Enjoy!
