Whiskey & Bananas Playlist Vol. 30

Featuring Angel Olsen, Odetta, Lydia Lunch, Janis Joplin, Suzi Quatro, Anika, Caitlin Rose & more

Feeling Free — Nicole Willis & the Soul Investigators

We’re loving this retro R&B/soul group of American-born Nicole Willis, based in Helsinki, Finland.

Half Moon — Janis Joplin

Can’t go wrong with some lost Janis classics.

Naked Eye — Luscious Jackson

Hard to believe it’s been 20 years since this alt-rock gem landed.

Shut Up Kiss Me — Angel Olsen

We’ve featured Angel Olsen on a Whiskey & Bananas playlist a while back, but she’s too amazing not to include her new music here — we couldn’t be more excited about her new album coming out in the fall.

End Of The World — Anika

An off-kilter, Nico-esque reimagingining of the Skeeter Davis classic.

Sail Away Ladies — Odetta

No one did it better than the legendary Odetta.

The Girl from Detroit City — Suzi Quatro

70s glam rock wunderkind & “Happy Days” actress Suzi Quatro reflects on her Detroit roots.

Heartbreak — Spike & the Sweet Spots

This cover of a Shannon & The Clams original by local Chicago retro rock n rollers Spike & the Sweet Spots harkens back to a different era with stunning vocals.

Lady Scarface — Lydia Lunch

One of the original NYC punk pioneers, Lydia Lunch goes cabaret in this hidden gem.

Spare Me Fetzer’s Blues — Caitlin Rose

Young Nashville singer Caitlin Rose captures some of the best vibes that country music can offer.
