Listen In: His Clancyness Made You a Playlist

October 1, 2013 | 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.

This week we’re featuring Jonathan Clancy, an taly-based rocker who makes lean, psychedelic guitar pop as His Clancyness. The playlist, if I do say so, is excellent, digging into Italian bands like Diaframma, Noi Tre, and In Zaire, Lust for Life-era Iggy, guitar/electronics composer Christian Fennesz, and classic garage rock. Click the big play button above to hear the whole playlist, and scroll down to see and play individual songs.

Vicious, His Clancyness’s forthcoming album, is due out October 7th via FatCat.
