Playlists are up! Here’s what I thought was the best of September 2014 on Rdio, Soundcloud, Spotify and Youtube. This past month had no shortage of great songs from bands like Yellerkin, Paperwhite, Operators, Haerts, Death From Above 1979 and many more.

“Unbound” by San Francisco duo Brodie Jenkins and Johnny Hwin (aka Cathedrals). The video was a collaboration between the band, Maria Kochetkova (the principal ballerina in the San Francisco ballet) and The Sugar Cubes light sculpture, while brought to life by director Sam Pressman and cinematographer Isaac Bauman (John Legend, Sam Smith, Drake, The Presets and Blood Orange). The song comes from the self-title EP released on Neon Gold Records earlier this month.
I’ve got another contest to announce today, a chance to win tickets to see Bombay Bicycle Club in Toronto at The Opera House, Oct. 16th. After a successful and extensive sold out headlining tour throughout North America, including a stop at Toronto’s Danforth Music Hall this past spring, Bombay Bicycle Club are back on the road with an upcoming stop in TO next month. They’re touring to support their album “So Long, See You Tomorrow“, an album described as “effortlessly diversifying and innovating at an astonishing rate with ethereal loops, offbeat rhythms, shimmering keys, Dutch techno blips, soaring strings and even Bollywood movie samples“.

Austin Basham is an independent folk singer songwriter from Austin, Texas who is set to release his debut EP titled ‘Hollow Head / Hollow Heart’ this fall. The EP was recorded in Oslo Norway with Digory Smallz, a producer based out of Vancouver BC, after the two met online through twitter and eventually in person months later to record together. In the small town of Linton, Cambridgeshire, UK, the two spent many hours in an idyllic English home, burning wood to keep warm, while making final changes to the songs before heading into the Studio. Once in Norway, they put the tracks down at Subsonic Society in Oslo, while having Greg Calbi (Paul Simon, Bon Iver, John Lennon) master the EP at Sterling Sound.
“Running” is the first single to be released off of Austin Basham‘s upcoming EP. For fans of Oh Monsters And Men meets The Tallest Man On Earth, check out “Running”.
