HALT and CATCH FIRE - Featured Spotify Playlists
We've teamed up with AMC's Digital Marketing to create character playlists for the new series 'Halt and Catch Fire'. We put together 20+ song playlists based on each of the show's main characters, and every week AMC will release a new one that is influenced by the events of that particular episode.
For season two, Thomas and the rest of the SMV team will be recording commentary tracks for each playlist discussing the music used on the show.
It’s been over a year since Joe MacMillan made his destructive exit from Cardiff Electric and set out on a solitary trek to Fisk Observatory. Since then, he’s moved, picked up a new job and plans to marry Sara Wheeler. He’s come a long way, no doubt, but can anyone truly escape their past? That remains to be seen. One thing’s for sure, though – Joe has always been enamored of the future . So, what’s he listening to as he continues to reinvent himself? A little bit of everything, from David Bowie to The Smiths, lets us know that some things have changed and some stay the same. Listen to Joe’s updated playlist curated by Halt and Catch Fire‘s music supervisor Thomas Golubić and his team at SuperMusicVision — including a bonus commentary track from Golubić and Yvette Metoyer.
