Merry Christmas Eve! I love Christmas Eve because it’s the quietest, most contemplative holiday of the year, at least as far as I’m concerned. So for today, I’ve put together a very quiet, contemplative mix. I hope these tracks get you in the mood, and prepare you for the day ahead tomorrow filled with presents and food and excitement! So cozy up and enjoy these weird soothing songs.
DJRePete is breaking format today with a holiday mix that’s sure to please EVERYONE—even the anti-holiday music lover! Hit up alternative from Sufjan Stevens and St. Vincent, acoustic with Asobi Seksu and Caitlin Rose, and electro beats with Saint Etienne. And back for the second straight year, DJRePete pulls out the brass for a string of Christmas tracks that will make you feel right at home on Bourbon Street. Happy holidays from DJRePete and BTR!
It’s the holiday season, and the holiday season means giving (and receiving) gifts! So for this week’s Sew & Tell I’ve tapped five of BTR’s culture DJs for gift ideas. You’ll find lists of their stellar suggestions on today’s playlist page, covering everyone from your globetrotting BFF to your bookworm uncle. Plus, I asked each DJ to weigh in on their personal favorite fashion find of 2014, and they shared their discoveries. You’ll hear from DJ Jen about her experience going shampoo-free, DJ Dane about his Ebay vintage watch obsession, DJ Jess about her favorite new travel-friendly label, DJ Meredith about Nike’s great new designs, and DJ Kory about an innovative young sportswear label in L.A. Plus, I’ve got a playlist of holiday-friendly indie tracks, including music from Tweedy, Pink Mountaintops, Sufjan Stevens, and more. So check your shopping list and get ready to add a few last-minute purchases – your gifts are sure to be a hit this holiday season, thanks to BTR’s savvy DJs!
