This week we spoke with Malaka Gharib, creator of the D.C.-based food zine The Runcible Spoon. Gharib likes a little bit of everything from, “...’70s punk, ‘80s new wave and electronic music, with a little hip-hop and bossa nova thrown into the mix.”
“I like music that makes me want to dance or sing along, and I have a penchant for British bands and catchy synths. I’m really bad at staying up-to-date with the latest music, and all I ever want to do these days is listen to ’90s hits,” she admits.
Her playlist follows.
A Tribe Called Quest, “Bonita Applebum”
Doves, “There Goes The Fear”
The Phenomenal Handclap Band, “15 to 20”
X, “Los Angeles”
Underworld, “Two Months Off”
Stardust, “Music Sounds Better With You”
Vince Guaraldi Trio, “Christmas Time Is Here”
The Toadies, “Possum Kingdom”
Le Tigre, “Deceptacon”
