Like we always do at this time—a compilation of my favourites new songs (available on Spotify) released in the past three months. I divide these playlists into two CD-R-sized sets, as that’s how the first humans would have surely have wanted it to be. I’ve been compiling these for so long now, I used to post them to Tumblr, damn. You can browse the back catalogue of my quarterly playlists on my Spotify profile.
