SHUFFLE UPDATE: August 26, 2019
The SHUFFLE UP’D EIGHT for this week…
I originally started these weekly ‘SHUFFLE UP’d EIGHT’ posts as a way to highlight a few tracks (ok, 8 tracks if you want to get specific) from the weekly reshuffling ‘HI54 WEEKLY SHUFFLE’ playlist (which I update every Sunday with a fresh batch of 54 tracks/artists for anyone not already following on Spotify), but then I started thinking:
What if sometimes the “shuffle up’d 8” got pulled from a different HI54 Spotify playlist? Y’know, as a way to highlight a differently themed HI54 Mix CD, because those playlists also get reshuffled regularly and are filled with tracks that can be found on Bandcamp too?
And since I was recently enjoying a mountain town breakfast while listening to the mountain town soundtrack I keep updated (because I just so happen to live in a mountain town), I figured this would be as a good week as any to highlight some of the nice mountain town vibes you’ll find in the ongoing HI54 Mix CD ‘MOUNTOWN LIFE’ (♫ Spotify / Soundsgood):
And to check-off my self-imposed ‘Every Monday, You Gotta Prepare 8 Bandcamp Embeds for the Hype Machine Bots, Because Hype Machine Doesn’t Grab Spotify Tracks’ rule for this week, I’ve pulled out eight gems from this week’s shuffle below — so if/when you hear something you like, make sure to check the artistS out further at one of the links provided:
And I guess that’s about that for the SHUFFLE UP’D EIGHT for this week’s shuffle update (and yes, you’re right: “shuffle up’d eight” does sound a lot like “shuffle update”).
Hopefully you’ll find a few new pieces for your personal headphone collection, whether that be from the 8 tracks highlighted above, or from one of the many other excellent tracks/artists featured in the full ‘MOUNTOWN LIFE’ playlist — which gets updated regularly if you fancy following along for future shuffles.
And speaking of future shuffles: I’ve started an ongoing Spotify playlist to keep track of every track that ever gets featured as a “shuffle up’d 8” + I compile monthly Playmoss playlists that feature all the Bandcamp tracks that were featured.
So, plenty of HI54-audio-exploring options to fire up in the the headphones this Monday… I guess I will leave you to it (*ps- find even more HI54 headphone options HERE, if for some reason the above is not enough for you this week). Cheers \m/
