As part of the lead-up to Sofasonic Festival, a weekend of online events happening 17-19 July 2020, we’re releasing an array of playlists on Spotify that have been carefully curated by artists & friends of the festival for your listening pleasure.
Following playlists by Radwan Moumneh, Mark Titchner, QUEEF, Gazelle Twin, Matt Ridout & Khyam Allami – this time, we’ve got something a bit different for your listening pleasure… we asked two super-friends, Molly (age 6) and Mabel (age 9) to put together a playlist for our Sofasonic celebrations.
A brilliant selection for dancing around to – take a listen here…
To choose these songs they looked back at the posters and videos from past Supersonic’s and picked out a few names to listen to – the ones that they liked got added to the list! Of course they’re not all Supersonic alumni, as well as some experimental music, they also love a good pop song! This meant adding in some of their ‘current’ favourites like Elton John & Dolly Parton. Some tracks have also been chosen because of their excellent videos (like Anna Meredith’s Paramour) and some just because well – they just like them (DJ Shadow / Dan Deacon) but the proverbial line got drawn for the Baby Shark song – no one needs to listen to that!
The final song in the playlist is Alice Cooper’s ‘Schools Out’ – an obvious choice for Molly & Mabel, because it is, and it has been, for quite some time!
To all the others not in school – don’t forget our next Kids Gig this Saturday at 11am via Zoom!
Following his pop-up performances at Supersonic 2019, the one-man-band extravaganza, ICHI will perform for the tots as part of our Sofasonic weekend. Expect a set of quirky handmade instrument inventions from this Bristol-based Japanese experimental singer-songwriter – playful, danceable and pure fun! Tickets & more info.
Stay tuned – more delectable music selections coming from Supersonic artists & friends soon…
