Planet Rotations #247: Goth Week II 2017

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.

Sarah and I are immersed in a total Goth listening fest for the month of October. In Week II's feature, we've each selected 6 of our favorite dark tracks - the first 2 rows are mine, the second 2 are Sarah's. You'll also notice a Spotify player at the bottom, which includes these songs. 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.
