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.
Have you heard the latest single from Brighton based duo MIAMIGO? “What I Want” is a modern dose of pop with 80s influences, written about “a restless wait and the virtue of patience that battles inhibitions and alter-egos, dreams and delusions.” Look for this track off an upcoming EP.
Playlists are up! It’s a smaller, more concise list this month, but tons of great new bands to get on board with. Choose your streaming platform (Soundcloud, Rdio and Spotify) and get listening. Artists to watch: Yukon Blonde, Leon Bridges, Tame Impala, Austin Basham.
The Hype Machine is in serious throwback mode today, although the songs in the Top 50 are brand spanking new. Take a listen to these 4 that made the cut.
