Viewing Gum Listening Post hits the big TWO ZERO. And to mark this special event, I have done something amazing: I have gone and changed the playlist title from “Viewing Gum Listening Post” to…wait for it…VGLP. THIS. CHANGES. EVERYTHING.
Okay, perhaps not, but apart from that, everything is same as ever – old and new, silly and serious, upbeat and downplayed, everything you could hope for. So enjoy the dozen tracks handpicked by yours truly by clicking here or streaming below!
Welcome to the second instalment of my Viewing Gum Listening Post Spotify playlists. Same as before, it’s a mix of old and new, home and abroad, classics and curios, but just a cross-section of some of the songs I’ve been listening to, well, since the last one. Give it a listen!
In other news, the latest edition of my Japanese music podcast Tokyo Soundscape has also just made its way online, so why not stick that on your portable music device and enjoy music from the likes of Base Ball Bear, The Polka Dot Fire Brigade, Sexy Synthesizer and a host of other acts with silly names. While you’re there, I also recommend listening to Nordorama, which has a host of great tunes from Norway, Iceland, Denmark, and the like.
