Meet Philip, 25 years old from Sweden and a few other places.
“I made this playlist because I felt a desire that wouldn't be satisfied by any other means.”
What is the soundtrack to your life?
Purple rain by Prince. It is simple. It is beautiful. It is a bit sad. It is damn near perfect.
What’s more important to you? Music; or Lyrics? Why?
Welp. This is definitely a safe answer. But I'll go ahead, since it's also true. To me both are important, but in different stages. The first few times i hear a song I never listen to the lyrics. At that point the music has to be right, otherwise I won't listen to it again. But once the song has gained my interest and I've given it a few listenings I start hearing the lyrics. At that point the lyrics will decide whether I lose interest or if the song keeps growing on me.
Favorite artist? Top 5?
My definite favorite is the Swedish band Kent. They're just the bomb. Making both interesting music and sounds combined with amazing lyrics. I guess I could keep going on and on about them, but yeah. They're the bomb. It is hard to rank any one in any particular order after them but I guess some good candidates for spot 2-5 are Feint, Prince, Sub Focus and Kendrick Lamar
If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be? (Dead or alive) and why?
Beethoven. We could do it with post-its or something. Wouldn't it be wicked to see what kind of genius he was? I'd think so.
It has been a while. I think it was either Sampha or Jonathan Johansson.
