Charmer made us a playlist, discuss life as a band in self-isolation
With the coronavirus outbreak causing many people to stay at home as much as possible, we’ve been asking musicians what music they’re listening to in isolation, and this one comes from Michigan emo band Charmer, whose sophomore album Ivy comes out next week (4/3) via No Sleep (pre-order).
Vocalist/guitarist David Daignault put together the playlist, which includes music by Title Fight, Dogleg, Del Paxton, Mannequin Pussy, Slow Mass, You Blew It!, Sparta, now-defunct Code Orange offshoot Adventures, and more, and he also told us the following about the playlist and life in quarantine:

In the meantime I've been revisiting a lot of my favorite albums and some new [ones] while writing quite a bit so I made a playlist of a collection of songs from those albums.
Here's his playlist:
And here's Charmer's recent single "Doom":
