Fahrenheit Fair Enough: Weekend Playlist by Brother Rutherford

by | May 31, 2019 | MUSIC

Every Friday night, RVA Mag introduces you to yet another outstanding playlist curated by Virginia’s most influential artists, musicians, and institutions.

This week we are graced with a heaping helping of musical delights from none other than Brother Rutherford, who you Richmond music devotees may recognize as Ethan Johnstone, drummer for local math-rock groups Night Idea and Houdan The Mystic. He’s just released his first solo album under the name Brother Rutherford, Tunneling, which is a progressive instrumental rock album with touches of electronic, folk, and ambient sounds.

In addition to helping you get familiar with Brother Rutherford’s unique sound, his mix for us this week will fill your weekend with delightfully progressive and intelligent sounds drawn from all sorts of different genres, but all sharing a clear mood. It’s perfect for finding a shady spot outdoors and relaxing.

Get in the mood, Virginia.
