Here’s a quick measure of how things have progressed here at Record Rewind Play.

This time last year I had a new music playlist that I thought might see me through the year. I figured it would be large, but manageable. In July 2014 I decided to start a new playlist, splitting the year’s releases down the middle.

In January this year I felt I had enough new tracks covered for a dedicated playlist just for that month.

February 2015 has already become my most productive month in terms of new music covered, and with up to 20 tracks posted each week, it now makes sense to create a weekly playlist of new releases. No wonder I’m tired.

Here’s the first in a new series of weekly playlists, then. I can’t guarantee there will be one every week until the end of the year, but we’ll see how it goes. To start you off we have the exciting returns of The Leisure Society and Stornoway, sparkling indie-pop from Two Cartoons, electropop from New Arcades and something quite stunning from Natalie McCool. Among others.
