Listen Weekly 01: Botanical

Photographs Thom Atkinson

Introducing the very first edition of our new weekly playlist series from the team at Hole & Corner, bringing together some of our favourite artists and sounds…

For Listen Weekly 01, the team found themselves digging deeper into the theme Botanical – with reflections on the outdoors, gardening, nature, or just the colour green. Featuring music from a disparate section of artists including Brian Eno, Courtney Barnett, Battles and beyond, we think this is the perfect soundtrack for any botanical pursuits – or just to feel like you’re getting back to nature.

From now on, each week we will be delving into a new theme with a whole new playlist to bring you the sounds from our office, the contributors, or the makers. Next week we will be focusing on Gathering – until then we hope you enjoy the music!

01. Brian Eno – ‘Another Green World’
