Planet Rotations #256: Goth / Industrial / Post-Punk 2018 Part 1

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.

As per tradition, Sarah and I are immersed in a total Goth listening fest for the month of October. Below you will find 20 albums that we've listened to over the last 20 days, photographed from our Vinyl & CD collection. You'll also notice a Spotify player at the bottom, which features a song pick from each album for the both of us. This is an ongoing playlist that you can follow directly on Spotify. Some songs are inevitably not available in their database, so we encourage you to seek those out elsewhere. Please put your own lists in the comments below, or interact at the Life on this Planet Facebook.
