October is always one of the best months for new music. Like previous years, instead of scrambling to find enough songs to round out a playlist, I was forced to cut a few songs that I featured this month on the blog, but just didn’t fit right on the playlist. The result though is a fantastic mix that I hope you enjoy. Whether you prefer to listen via Soundcloud, Rdio or Spotify, I’ve got some brand new tunes from RAC, Niki & The Dove, Phoria, Hot Chip and many more.
EL VY (pronounved “El Vie”) is a duo featuring The National singer Matt Berninger and Brent Knopf (Menomena, Ramona Falls). “Return To The Moon” comes from the album of the same name and has a punchy, less broody sound than what I expected.
Take a listen.
