WATCHOUT VOL 2

Vol. 2 of the Watchout playlist on TIDAL features a return of native New Yorkers, QTY! Don’t get to comfortable because Vol. 3 will feature NO repeat offenders. Listen in for new music from Long Island’s Necter, new stuff from more New Yorkers Public Access TV, Lovehoney and Gingerlys. I’m very excited about the beautiful unpredictable sounds of Palm and The Van T’s threw in something bittersweat all the way from Scotland!
