Stereo Stories is building a growing catalogue of of stories based on contemporary songs. The term ‘contemporary’ is of, course, relative. This year is, after all, the 250th anniversary of a composer by the name of Ludwig van Beethoven. For our purposes, let’s say songs from the past 20 years or so. The 21st century, or thereabouts.

Recently we have runs stories about songs by Baker Boy, Tones & I, Rufus du Sol, Jason Mraz, and Boats & Birds.

Add to the eclectic mix, stories from the past few years about Mumford & Sons, You Am I, Birds of Tokyo, Maggie Rogers, The Basics, Bjork, Car Seat Headrest, Clairy Browne & The Banging Rackettes, Post Malone, Courtney Barnett,  The Kill Devil Hills, Neko Case, One Direction, Tash Sultana, Boy & Bear, Ocean Alley, Lana Del Rey, Lorde, Bon Iver, Jarrow, The Killers….
