“Listen In” is a weekly feature in which we ask musicians to curate a mixtape-length YouTube playlist of songs they’re currently digging. Click the big play button above to hear the whole playlist or scroll down to see and hear individual tracks.
This week we have a playlist from Brooklyn-based band The Church Committee. The band has brought a little something old, a little something new and almost everything is blues. That’s appropriate when you hear The Church Committee’s neo-noisy-blues sound, which you can do right here. The group’s next show is scheduled for December 7th at Bowery Electric.
