Put your X in the box, and this in your ears – an Election Day playlist

Music to vote to

Today (8 June), the UK goes to the polls nationally for the third time in 25 months. To keep you company on the way to your local primary school/church hall/launderette, we’ve put together a playlist of Music To Vote To, aimed at inspiring or maybe just soothing brains that have been overloaded with all the electioneering the past seven weeks.

It only takes a minute to vote, you can find out where your local polling station is here, and who you should be voting for, based on where you live, here. And after you’ve spent that minute doing your duty, spend the next 99 listening to this racket, from scabrous guitars to banging techno, and most stops in between. Enjoy.
