As part of your many, many perks for becoming a Quietus subscriber, we're compiling a specially-curated, playlist for our readers every month. This time it's an XL Xmas edition, taking in everything great we've covered in November and the first few weeks of December, before team tQ take a break until January.

As well as our biggest, this playlist is among our best (if we do say so ourselves), with some phenomenal tracks including some team-ups for the ages from The Bug/Sleaford Mods and Richard Dawson/Circle, elegant avant-pop from Martha Skye Murphy, pure fire from Hard Feelings, the picks of our international pop, jazz, metal, punk, tapes, rum music and French music columns, and early tastes of hugely-anticipated 2022 LPs from the likes of Jockstrap, Jenny Hval, Black Country, New Road and more.

On top of all that, don't forget that as a subscriber you also get links to the extra special Albums Of The Year playlist, plus our regular specially curated 'Organic Intelligence' playlists, exploring the weirdest and wonderfullest musical niches, from wonky techno to swedish prog!

In order to listen to the playlists, you'll need the link - you can become a Quietus Low Culture or Sound & Vision tier subscriber here. And FYI, the playlist is but one of the perks you could receive as a Quietus Subscriber. Our latest Low Culture podcast features Antye Greie, aka AGF, on her teenage love for Eastbloc 90s rockers Silly and is live now, as are heaps of exclusive releases for our Sound & Vision tier members from none other than Sleaford Mods, Better Corners, Alisson Cotton, Nik Void, Alex Tucker, and GNOD vs JK Flesh, and exclusive essays on The X-Files, why Dean and Gene Ween are the greatest songwriters since Lennon and McCartney, Arthur Brown and The Wyrd History of Accrington Stanley FC. More is being announced very soon indeed, and rest assured it's not to be missed. Access your playlists below the Steady paywall here:
