So Good playlist, October 16 edition

A bit more all-over-the-place this week, going from classic blues to garagier modern goodies and a relatively downbeat last 45 minutes to suit the weather. The spotlight this week was on offbeat girl group pop, which is why Dolly Parton makes an appearance and why you might’ve heard the most disturbing single the Crystals ever recorded — the fact that Phil Spector recorded what’s basically an ode to spousal abuse is as creepy as it gets.

Favourite new tracks: The Hood Internet and BreakBot both have pretty great sounds going on (and man did Hood Internet ever collaborate with a heck of a lot of amazing people), but I’ve gotta give this one to locals Sanctums. Their latest is pay-what-you-want on Bandcamp, and you should really check it out.
