I recently had someone on Tumblr ask me if I was on Spotify so they could follow me for music suggestions, having liked the music I post here. I’m not sure how to link directly to my Spotify account (if that’s even possible) so I decided to link to two playlists that have become my “catch alls” for new music I find.

The playlist above, “PRDR, Fishbowls & Mexican Mondays” came about sometime in August 2013 while studying for my first round of medical boards as a way to share some songs I was really into with a few friends. It served and continues to serve as a waystation for tracks that have already been vetted from my on-going (and currently 510 track, 31 hour long) “To Listen To” playlist and that might make it onto the “New for 34th” playlist. Basically, when I find a song I really like out of an album and listen to it over and over again, it gets bumped up to this playlist which means this playlist, on shuffle, is also pretty solid for long drives in the car.

Currently at 90 tracks and 5h 28 minutes, “PRDR, Fishbowls, & Mexican Mondays” features tracks by artists like Matthew Mayfield, Mighty Oaks, Bronze Radio Return, Moon Taxi, Smallpools, Johnnyswim and more.

I just threw together a new mix on 8tracks, 34th & Now: Kelly Kapowski Mixtape featuring 42 of my favorite pop/rock songs from the 90s. Let’s be honest, the 90s totally killed it in terms cheesy, sing-along, fun pop music and sometimes that’s what you need on a Sunday afternoon. As always feel free to share this one.
