Planet Rotations #231: Manchester

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. We are huge fans 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 all music lovers, we love to share what we're listening to and discover some new things from friends.

On the second Friday of each month, Sarah and I select a theme for our weekly playlist. For April's theme, we listened to artists from Manchester, England. We each featured 9 albums that we played in full - the first batch are mine, the second are hers. You'll also notice a Spotify player at the bottom, which features a song from each album. This is 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.
