It’s about that time we round out this week’s coverage on another hometown favorite. You’ve had the chance to get to know Pony Time, you snagged a free download, loaded up on sugar and peeped an unreleased track. Now, it only seems fitting we wrap with one final piece to the puzzle: a playlist for your full enjoyment.

“Wandering Lucy” from Remittent Fever is a favorite of Luke’s: “She put out a 7” EP with K Records in the 90s. Just her, a guitar and a drum machine. I loved it because she’s not perfect, and it was maybe the first time I realized you don’t have to be a brilliantly technical person to be a good writer, or even a good musician. After hearing “Wandering Lucy” I went and bought a 4 track.”

Music packs a punch, often times a meaningful one. And like for Luke above, Stacy too, compiled a list of her favorite songs to share.

Below, you’ll find a list of the tracks each band member has contributed to their list of must haves. These songs are not only what’s on rotation for Stacy and Luke, they each mean a little somethin’, somethin’. Find it all below in the Spotify playlist.
