Yes, I am late. But it's still a new year. As I looked back on the year in review, I was glad to note that all the songs in my top 100 playlist on Spotify were bands I discovered last year. So, if nothing else, this little project has dramatically expanded my listening range. Hopefully, it has done the same.
This playlist is topped by a recent discovery Sakuran-Zenson a Japanese punk band very much in the style of one of my favorite bands Thee Michele Gunn Elephant - pictured above. The lead singer and some others from TMGE have started a new band called The Birthday. TMGE is like The Clash and Sonic Youth had a Japanese baby.
