SUBPOP
Interested in what your favorite artist will be listening to and watching over holiday break? Top artists from the year share their top picks from the year. Among the artists who divulged their favorites are THEESatisfaction, Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes, and Ishmael Butler of Shabazz Palaces. While Ishamel takes a slightly random approach and touches on everything from his favorite day of the year to his favorite view, Robin and THEESatisfaction stick to music and movies. Robin’s top-ten playlist on Spotify includes Kurt Vile, Portishead, and The Walkmen. The ladies of THEESatisfaction’s movie archive is robust with flicks like Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, The Nutty Professor, and Mary Poppins.

If this Seattle Weekly review is any indicator, it’s a performance you will not want to miss. Both The Stranger and The Seattle Times are heralding tonight’s concert as a recommended show attend, and the album has been glowingly reviewed everywhere from New York Magazine to the Los Angeles Times to The Guardian. Although initially media-shy, Shabazz Palaces mastermind Ishmael Butler has opened up about his project in several lengthy interviews and continues to put Seattle on the map as a city that is home to incredible music.
