Marshall McKinney, Creative Director at Garden & Gun


This week's SPD Playlist is brought to you by Garden & Gun's Creative Director, Marshall McKinney. With a mix titled, "Don't Break The Needle" this 5-hour playlist features 74 songs with artists such as the Beastie Boys, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and Elvis Costello. Check out the playlist below!

Marshall McKinney: "I like sounds that wobble a bit. Tunes about sex, drugs and general mayhem speak to my earholes—regardless the genre. So with that in mind I’ve selected a number of songs across a wide range that I hope will cause your backbone to slip, hips to shake and perhaps make ya wanna smack momma on her ass.

If Oscar the Grouch had a basement "music room" at the bottom of his trashcan you'd find a record player spinning ragged, lumbering, wobbly tunes like these. And, being a gracious host he'd offer up his jazz lettuce and grape.
