Music Discovery: October 2015

Fall is turning into winter and our Music Supervisors have curated a playlist just for you. One of our Music Supervisors, Gabriel Marowitz, has featured three songs, from Fairground Saints, Strange Faith and Kaleo, that stand out from the hundreds that he hears every month. We are sure you will find these tunes as refreshing as he did.


Artist: Fairground Saints

Track: Turn This Car Around

This song starts out sounding pretty Nashville, but ends up being sunny California Country Popgrass. This makes sense, as the group’s debut album was recorded in Malibu and not Music City. This song includes catchy vocals and melodic riffs from guitar, mandolin and banjo, as well as nice string arrangements and fiddle in there too. If they can perform live on those instruments as well as they do on the record, this will be a band to watch.


Artist: Strange Faith

Track: Walking Over

This Sunday morning easy groove comes from Jeb Loy Nichols across the pond in Wales. Strange Faith (Nichols’ collaboration with jazz/soul/folk producer and composer Benedic Lamdin) brings a rich and vibrant, breezy yet bluesy twist on the laid-back soul sound.


Artist: Kaleo

Track: Way Down We Go

This song is pretty awesome. So is the music video, where the band gets dropped off by helicopter on an empty Icelandic tundra, walks up a volcano, and then descends into the depths of the earth to perform in a cold, leaky underground cave. Way down, indeed.

About Gabriel Marowitz

Hello, my name is Gabriel Marowitz. I have over 10 years’ experience in the music industry and currently work as a music supervisor for PlayNetwork. I love all things music, and while I am a roots music nerd I really enjoy anything you can dance to.

I have worked in all corners of the music industry, from festival production and programming, to radio and tour promotion, as well as working in marketing at indie record labels. I started with PlayNetwork four years ago and haven’t looked back. My favorite job—matching an artist who I love (old or new) with a brand who values music as a core component of its identity.

I am excited about today’s music industry, how it continues to adjust to the digital age. I enjoy staying on top of developments in the music space as well as learning about innovations that affect customer experiences in retail environments.

When I am not working to keep up with the constant deluge of new music released every week, I blow off steam playing around town with local Seattle bands. You can find me hanging at my weekly bluegrass jam or watching Clint Dempsey and the Seattle Sounders try to make a run at the MLS Cup.
