the jansky playlist

2017 and beyond.  the future is fleeting, much like the eclectic space between the tracks in this first playlist of the year.  the icon theme is space-related just as the spatial relationship between songs fluctuates like a radio wave.  i tried to use downtempo vibes to bookend the more explosive indie rock tracks in-between, hopefully they play the ear well.  anyway, this list is named after Karl Jansky.  a short description of his astronomical influence is below:

One of the ways modern astronomers study the Universe is by tracing light waves through telescopes; another is by studying radio waves. The man who discovered the existence of these extraterrestrial radio waves, and thus founded radio astronomy , was Karl Jansky. Employed as an engineer in Bell Laboratories, New Jersey, Jansky was assigned the job of reducing static noise on transatlantic radio transmissions, and it was while inquiring into the origin of this static that he made his discovery. -Encyclopedia.com
