TR Alternative Playlist

The Beautiful Game

An Alternative Playlist of tracks that have caught my fancy in our dropbox over recent weeks. The fact is that there’s far more interesting music being made than than we can possibly fit on our Listening Post – and even my BBC Introducing Mixtape only features an hour of music every week. So here’s a bonus 90 minutes of uninterrupted quality listening – carefully sequenced to accompany your study, work, chores or chillin’ over the Bank Holiday weekend – with no jingles or announcements to spoil the flow. Enjoy !
