most christmas playlists are like background noise for holiday shopping or the music of a holiday party. they’re a little more upbeat, but almost ambient in the sense of like they’re not meant to be totally focused on all the time. we decided the trash garbage take on a christmas playlist isn’t an “ironic” christmas music playlist of non-christmas music, is almost “Fuck you, This is Just The Entirety Of The Charlie Brown Christmas Soundtrack”, but is, perhaps, a sleepytime christmas playlist kinda antithetical to most christmas playlists.
mostly christmas jazz, but some piano covers from Game Boy Advance RPG that isn’t not christmas either.
So lately, Matthew’s been asking me what kind of playlist I want to make for the blog. And with the exception of a couple that I’ve been working on, the creative demons have not been tormenting me effectively lately. So when Matthew asked me “what have you been listening to while you’re working?” I was honest. And the end result is this, an almost several days–long playlist of footage from The Weather Channel as it existed in the 90s, with most of its commercials intact.
what’s the long-ass german word for posting something knowing i’m never gonna be famous enough to get shit for not fully researching the political opinions or actions of every single artist featured in a free jazz, jazz fusion, & avant garde jazz playlist i jokingly titled this jazz kills fascists anyway acab
Finally, Sammie’s back with a new playlist. Except the playlist isn’t new at all! It’s very old, actually. Sammie’s back with a new very old playlist, finally.
This playlist predates Trash Garbage. In fact, Sammie sharing it with Matthew is what spawned the earliest conversations of “what if we had a blog that just published the kind of playlists we wanted but couldn’t ever find.” How could we, Bloggers, keep you from this important Trash Garbage Lore?
This 5-hour playlist has gotten Sammie through many a workday and many a work project. It’s ambient electronic, with almost no vocals to speak of, but just enough light percussion to keep your brain engaged. The songs were chosen for the playlist by queuing up a bunch of albums and then, if I was able to work through a period of time, I picked a couple of the most pleasing to keep as future background noise. Hopefully it helps you focus like it has helped me.
the other end of checking your work email on monday morning. a lot of genres, but it’s all friday. less of a getting coffee and drilling down to work playlist and more of a soaking up the morning light and the last cup of coffee of the work week playlist. yesterday was thursday. today, it is friday.
A playlist for anyone who gets their best work done around 10:30 pm, but has a day job.
Despite being wildly genre-agnostic, the vibe is pretty consistently mellow, warm, but a little melancholy throughout. All of these songs live in a world that’s mostly gone to bed for the day and has thus gotten pretty quiet. It’s not a late-night playlist that’s going to eventually lull you to sleep, but rather one that’s content to stay up with you for a little while. And if you put it on in the middle of the day, it’ll pretend it’s the nighttime with you.
a short playlist of music of the most soothing, relaxing music I had encountered during a brief window of time, during the first summer of the pandemic, and while I could probably expand upon this or tweak it, it feels like in doing so, I would curse it. I fall asleep to this playlist a lot. it is too much to risk to alter that.
title comes from a jeff rosenstock song but obviously there are no jeff rosenstock songs on this sleep music playlist. playlist image is from a patch made by stay home club but you can’t buy it anymore sorry
