Playlist for the Unpopular Music webcast for July 9, 2016

Again, at the last minute, which actually keeps me from overthinking it. It's kind of a "best of what played on my phone this week" kind of show. The "overthinking", however, usually keeps me from repeating songs or helps me filter out artists I at least think I play too often - so hello Lee Konitz, Ornette Coleman, Deerhoof, and the Bang on a Can All-Stars! (but somehow no Bill Frisell).

It looks like we ended up with four different shows put together - a jazz show, an indie/alternative pop show, a folk/pop show, and an long-slow-quiet-electronic-ambient show.

See the playlist after the break...
