Every three months, music guru and overall genius Damon Way sends us a block of music for his recurring What Youth magazine feature called Notes From the Underground. And believe it or not, we’ve found a way to use the Internet for good because you can now stream his selections from the magazine after the jump.
After three contributions, Damon has garnered the undivided attention of all of us here. His contributions can be heard thumping and drumming and reverberating through all the What Youth halls. His love for rare finds, distortion and overlooked gems has rejuvenated everyone here’s music collections.
This month he’s gone with some much scratchier and distorted choices than usual, including albums by bands from the early ’90s. Bands like Slowdive, Ride (who may have the greatest album cover of all time), My Bloody Valentine and Film School lead this selection and should provide hours of reverie and light head nodding. We suggest a full pot of coffee, a sketchbook and today’s playlist curated by Damon Way, which is awaiting you now after the jump.
Be sure to check out What Youth’s quarterly book for all of Damon’s selections each month.
