This time of year comes with an overwhelming sense of change, (my hair is freshly seaweed turquoise), and the dire need to buy a shit load of new stationery (scented gel pens anyone?). That’s September for you, c ya l8r summer – it’s back to school and back to work.
Oi. None of that doom and gloom though. This Autumnal change brings with it polo necks, woolly tights, crunchy leaves to stomp on, Halloween and oh wait…more importantly, Polyester’s first birthday!! The 26th September will see The Glory transform into the ultimate day of interactive workshops and panels and to top it off, Dream Wife, babe of babes, will be performing.
In celebration for such a delight, we present to you Polyester Zine’s first Play Time Playlist! Vol 1. opens with fresh faced Bjork form her Sugarcubes days aptly singing ‘Birthday’. The hour and a half long playlist hosts a lot of new releases, from Kelela’s ‘Rewind’ to the newly signed Pixx to 4AD ‘Fall In’. Not to mention the evolution of Bat For Lashes to SEXWITCH in collaboration with Toy. This girl is frothing.
Oh and ending with Zed Bias… ’cause it’s Friday and I feel good good good.
