Lightly Sweetened Playlist


sweetened Have you been to a restaurant where the food tasted overly salted or seasoned? The food tastes alright, but
an disproportionate amount of sugar can make even a good pie not taste right. The same is true with music. Consider the changes made when unknown and indie artists cross into the pop world and how their
sound changes. Yes, there’s talent there, but it’s lost in all the extra stuff added.

Don’t worry, we’re not going to spend this hour exploring over-produced music.
Instead, I’m going to illustrate the antithesis of this, or a propo a Lightly Sweetened, lightly seasoned
spread of tunes.

New music coming up from indie alt-rockers Zoo Pilot, 1FM, feature act The Rocketboys, folk songwriter Emily Kate Boyd and much more including a few requests. Enjoy!
