Edition 8: Alternative Midwinter Tunes

‘Tis the season for those same old festive classics to be rolled out, when Slade suddenly becomes inescapable on every supermarket foray, met with delight and dismay in equal parts. 

We’re countering this by asking for your favourite alternative seasonal songs - ridiculous remixes, anti-festive anthems, unusual family classics… Bring us your best alternative midwinter tunes!

Our track for starters is: Let It Snow by Tin Men & The Telephone


What is it?

We love discovering new music, and the best way to discover is to share.

Listening Parties are a space to share the music you’re passionate about. You’ll discover something new and meet new people through their music choices.

How does it work?

Listening Parties are temporarily going online. We’ve tried out several platforms for communal listening and decided to try Zoom for our first virtual Listening Party. 

Like an open mic, let us know when you sign up to attend if you’ve got something to share. Unlike the live events, we’ll ask you to choose in advance what track you want to share and send it to us, so that we can play it to everyone. It can be a link to Youtube/Spotify/Bandcamp/Soundcloud/any freely accessible digital platform, or a file that we can download. 

We’ll limit contributions to 4 minutes each so that we can fit in lots of contributions. We encourage you all to introduce your track, tell us why you’ve chosen it, what is special about it to you.

We’ll also have an open Spotify playlist setup that you can add to during the event, if what you hear inspires you to share more - the night’s bespoke playlist will then be available to listen to again, to go back to find any jewels you discovered.

Sign up through Eventbrite, and we’ll send you a link to join the Zoom call and further instructions for participation.
