Slowly I’ve been updating this website with more music news, soundtracks and the latest pop culture tips (I’ve been meaning to talk about the Another Round podcast for 2 months now!) but I’ve got a Master thesis to write so it’ll take some time.
However, this whole weekly playlist thing I’ve been doing for work has got me really pumped and reminded me of this project I did for Far Out Recordings a few years ago when the BBC broadcasted the travel show “Brazil with Michael Palin”.
It was a 4-episode series where Michael travelled around Brazil and talked about a particular region each episode and, the morning after every show, I wrote about the music scene of said region and made a playlist with the songs that featured on the previous night’s episode and added others by artists from the same area.
You can now read all full texts and check out the playlists right here!
It was one of my favourite things to do during my time at Far Out, we got amazing feedback at the time and even The Telegraph’s Rob Fitzpatrick retweet one of our texts saying something along the lines of “loving it!” – it made my day!
