Editor’s Playlist #1: Rock n Roll Resort v4: The Dream Machine

We are proud to present a new feature on – Editor’s Playlists. Each week, one of our staff members will take the helm and create a playlist of their own choosing, featuring music from upcoming shows, favorite bands, Upstate artists, music festivals and more. You’ll get a nice sampling of music you should know about, bands you may not have discovered and some local favorites from across The Empire State.

Our inaugural Editor’s Playlist comes from Pete Mason and focuses on this weekend’s Rock n Roll Resort, v4: The Dream Machine, at Hudson Valley Resort and Spa, located in Kerhonksen, NY. With dozens of great bands, it’s hard to choose which ones to feature,but we settled on funk from The Motet, Turkuaz and Dumpstafunk, progressive/electronic rock from Tauk and SOLARiS, and the reggae-tinged ska of Conehead Buddha. If you aren’t going to Rock n Roll Resort, hopefully this changes your mind – it is a unique music festival experience that you just cannot miss!

Stay tuned for next weeks playlist, including some choice live Aqueous recordings, new studio efforts from favorites Formula 5 and Mister F, and more!< [soundcloud url="https://api.soundcloud.com/playlists/28694522" params="color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_artwork=true" width="100%" height="450" iframe="true" /]
