grace and matty’s daytrotter playlist

March 9, 2012

Daytrotter has been rolling out a new feature unsurprisingly called “Playlists”. For those of you unaware, Daytrotter records and distributes music from emerging bands. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals have two Daytrotter sessions to their credit. One from December 2008 and one from September 2011.

Membership to Daytrotter is an astoundingly low $2/month and, if you’re interested in new music, is easily the best $2 you’ll ever spend. In fact, if you buy a membership this month you even get a rockin’ free T-shirt. So, hopefully I’ve convinced you right?

Go listen to Grace and Matt’s playlist and take it from there

What can I say? We all know Daytrotter is fucking great. Sean & his Merry Trotters have colorfully drawn a roadmap for true diggers of music & the sounds they turn out are a lo-fi paradise that makes vintage junkies drool. We rely on Daytrotter for fresh takes from our favorite bands & hidden gems from acts we’ve never heard of. So me & Matty put together this list – and I’m gonna call this Volume 1 since narrowing down the awesomeness is a near impossible task.

You would certainly have convinced me if I wasn’t already a member, that’s for sure. You can still get the t-shirt if you buy a membership for someone else.

I love this playlist. It’s surprisingly mellow up to the last song, and wonderfully thrilling to think of them being hand-picked by Grace and Matt.

Long time fans might notice that at least 6 of these bands have opened for GPN back in the day. Nice touch.

Thanks TH1.
My post should have read *and 1 is a maybe*. I was sure of Sam Roberts, Future Birds, & Alberta Cross – Phonograph was the ‘maybe’.
I like your Delta Spirit stretch. :D

Interesting Linda. I caught Phonograph in CT. (Toads Place) with GPN the day after the Lincoln Center show. There might have been one more where they opened for them??? The band is managed by you know who!
