This is only the second newsletter and playlist, but I'm having a lot of fun with this project and should have done this years ago! I hope you're enjoying listening to each playlist as much as I am.
This playlist is more than twice as long as January's, and I hope that this is the average length going forward.
I'm on Apple Music and Spotify, where you can follow along and see what I am listening to (I'm usually more active on Apple Music but use Spotify a good amount). You can also follow me on Twitter: @mikerastiello is my personal account, and @downbeatfm is the one I set up for this project and occasionally tweet out what I'm listening to.
This month's playlist features Big Thief, Dogleg, Jenny Lewis, The Sonder Bombs, Alvvays, and much more.
