Planet Rotations #209 & 210

In the age of digital music, we tend to skip through albums, listening to one or two tracks - missing some of the deeper cuts that may be brilliant. I am a big fan of the album format, and love to experience the entire collection the way the artist intended. Listening to one or two songs is like randomly reading a few chapters of a book and expecting to understand the completed work. Like any music lover, I love to share what I'm listening to and discover some new things from friends.

If you've been following the LOTP Facebook page, then you already know that Sarah Quarrie is collaborating with me on the blog. Normally we post 5 records each, but since we're a few weeks behind, we're going for 12 each - the first 4 rows are mine, the second 4 are hers! You'll also notice a Spotify player at the bottom, which features a song from each album. This will be an ongoing playlist that you can follow directly on Spotify. Please put your own lists in the comments below, or interact at the Life On This Planet Facebook or Twitter.
