We got the inside word from Augie March’s Dave Williams on the eight songs that are inspiring him, and the band, at the moment, for our sister site, My Secret Playlist. He started off by propping the Animal Collective song, In The Flowers: ‘I love how these dudes mash up folksy harmonic progressions and melodies performed on traditional rock instruments with everything-bar-the-kitchen sink cut and paste rhythm tracks, incidental and found sounds, field recordings, and more. By no means are they the first to do this but, damn, they do it well. And with tonnes of heart’. Read the rest of Augie March’s Secret Playlist, along with other Playlists by The B52s, Moby, Donna Summer, and others.
