K Artist Playlist: Jared of the Shivas!

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

The latest K Artist Playlist has been provided by Jared from the Shivas! He has titled his playlist K Music for the Teenage Soul. It includes boss rockin’ selections by Wallpaper, Chain & the Gang, Basemint, the Hive Dwellers and thee Headcoats, and so many more of the concrete head bash killers you know and love! Says Jared, “When I first started thinking about this playlist I heard ‘Lightnin’ Rod for Jesus,’ and then it occurred to me – that is what I love most about K, that their records always tend to have a twinkling of soul. So I dove through the stacks of the International Pop Underground, the Dub Narcotic Disco Plates and the mountain of LP’s and brought back a sampling of K soul food, served hot for her pleasure and guaranteed to make you feel good deep down inside. Many of these songs I have listened to for years and many I just found on my trip, and so happily I present to you, K MUSIC FOR THE TEENAGE SOUL.”
