11 Dec #NowPlaying: ‘Light Up Your Life’ by Caroline Mackintosh
This year in #NowPlaying has been a great one – from ‘Songs for Looming Deadlines’ (to get you through many a late night working) to ‘The Whitest Playlist Alive’ (because you’ve always wondered what it sounds like when a moleskin and a banjo have babies). We also shared a scary-good Halloween playlist, ‘Boogie’, a mix about breaking up and making up called ‘He Said, She Said’ and even some ‘Music to Make Your Ears Bleed’, if that’s more your vibe.
Before we call it a wrap for 2014, we’ve got one last #NowPlaying to share with you: a collection of songs chosen by Caroline Mackintosh. We recently caught up with the free-spirited photographer after her time spent traversing the US, and one of her shoots from that trip was published on Oyster this week – it’s a beaut and her personal favourite to date, so we’ve included it below (just a bit nsfw, before you scroll down).
The playlist Caroline made for us today is called ‘Light Up Your Life’ and features Mac Demarco, The War On Drugs and No Joy as well as local acts Fantasma and Christian Tiger School. It’s a lovely mix of songs for summer dreaming that should do the trick no matter your preferred style of vacationing. Speaking of which, from us and the Stereophonics, have a nice (holi)day!
