Listen In: Pajama People Made You a Playlist

11.12.13 Andy Cush

Listen In” is a weekly feature in which we ask musicians to curate a mixtape-length YouTube playlist of songs they’re currently digging.

Here’s a playlist from the Brooklyn psychedelic dance-pop band Pajama People, who assembled a mix that brings together their synth-friendly peers and predecessors like Todd Rundgren and Sly & the Family Stone. Click the big play button above to hear the whole playlist, and scroll down to see and play individual songs. Note that several of Pajama People’s selections are only available on Bandcamp and weren’t included in the YouTube playlist.

Cool Intentions, Pajama People’s latest album, is streaming on Bandcamp and available on cassette via Memory No. 36.
