Columbus, Ohio Spotify Playlist

I’ve been loving Spotify ever since I started to use it earlier this month. I know people seem to be into Rdio a little more but honestly I never tried it out and am too busy lazy to check out the other service.

Playlists are a big thing on Spotify and I figured I’d share one that I’ve put together. My
Columbus Ohio playlist features music from as many Columbus bands that I could find (two albums max). The playlist includes Ron House, Royal Crescent Mob, Blueprint, Envelope, RJD2, The Black Swans, The Sun, Megan Palmer, Lydia Loveless, New Bomb Turks, Times New Viking, The Whiles, J Rawls, and many more.

If there are Columbus bands on Spotify that I missed, let me know in the comments and I’ll add them.

Stream some old Time & Temperature

01 All by Time and Temperature

While the excellent Cream of the Low Tide is on Bandcamp, most of the releases by Val Glenn aka Time & Temperature have been under the radar and hard to find (The Intimate VI EP, Trust Apples, a split with Jordan O’Jordan, etc.) unless you happen to know her personally or have friends in common. But recently she’s been putting a lot of her old stuff up on SoundCloud. So good.

T&T will be at Skully’s on July 29 with Blueprint and Nick Tolford & Company. Now that’s a lineup.

Video: Blueprint “The Clouds” (Live in Madison, Wi)

YouTube Preview Image

Rhymesayers is circulating this very high quality video of Blueprint performing “the Clouds” off his new album Adventures in Counter-Culutre in Wisconsin.

The song addresses somethings that have probably ran through the minds of anyone who has sat at Cafe Bourbon Street or Carabar. The deaths of Camu, Daymon and Przm, coke use, fights all get a mention in Blueprint’s new mission statement on “the Clouds”.

Kinda interesting to see somethings that is very real in Columbus being spoke about to a large crowd in Wisconsin.

Oh yeah, peep Bobby Silver from Brainbow playing with Blueprint and Rare Groove.
(Duffy takes a bow).
