We present you the music selection that our friends from Playlists.net have handpicked for this month. Easy Like Sunday Morning When Playlists.net was just a kid, Sunday’s were boring.

As a child growing up, Amy Winehouse’s life was full of music. Sometimes it would be her dad Mitch singing Sarah Vaughan or Frank Sinatra songs around the house, other times Amy and he would harmonise together as he drove his black cab through the London streets. Over the years Amy’s mother Janis built up […]

Our Interview with The Strypes

  “It’s like a hobby that’s got horribly out of hand…” From Cavan in Ireland, The Strypes have become fairly famous fairly quickly for being incredibly young guys into incredibly old music.
