The Pitfalls of an Unintegrated Set List – September 7, 2016

| Radio

On Bubble Wrap this week, we realized once again why sets of one person’s musical selections alternating with another person’s selections leads to chaos, both aurally and emotionally.  Just when you’re ready to get out the bourbon, a comedy number comes on.  Next we’re making you get your dancing shoes on, then we’re telling you to take them off and put on your slippers.  Does it work?  I don’t know.  Call me a soothsayer but I suspect that 7 days from this day, there will be an experimental adjustment in format.

As for the music, there were highlights.  I liked the Shy Kids’ “Terminally In Love With You” for its wide-ranging critique of this age-old plight.  Jamila Woods’ “Way Up” is beautiful and affecting, for those of us who aren’t sure we’re from this world.  I found a little more of the meditative folk pop I’ve been into lately in Pale Blue’s “The Past We Leave Behind.”

Here then is the patchwork playlist of the show:
