The most eclectic of playlists
Selection: Dominic Valvona

Monolith Cocktail

In case you don’t know the drill, previously only ever shared via our Facebook profile and on Spotify our regular Monolith Cocktail Social playlists will also be posted here on the blog itself. With no themes or demarcated reasoning we pick songs from across a wide spectrum of genres, and from all eras. #26 includes the drone bagpipes jazz of Rufus Harley, Sam ‘the Sham’ Samudio going hard on the funk for Atlantic records, French psych from the Le Systeme Crapoutchik, orchestral pop sike lament from The Move, collage radio breezy alternative rock from Miracle Legion and the most exquisite, evocative version of Bowie’s ‘The Bewley Brothers’ by John Howard. It is our imaginary dream radioshow playlist, or if we get the chance, a healthy mix of the tunes we’d play out live if we were djing.
