Every two months (or in this case three months) I post playlists of the songs I’ve been listening to recently. You can listen to the playlists in the Spotify players below if you have Spotify installed. If not, the playlists are listed in text below that. As always, you can follow me on Spotify here and view my other playlists here. I’ve commented on a few highlights below.
I haven’t been listening to as much new music lately. I’ve felt a bit swamped with work and haven’t been taking the time to look through the “New Music” emails from Spotify or to spend the evenings playing Candy Crush Saga with music videos on in the background.
That said, some of my favorites from this two month stretch are Gabrielle Aplin, Churchill, and KONGOS. It’s nice to see Beirut has a new release out too. I liked their song Postcards from Italy which was played on WOXY (R.I.P.) in 2006 or so back when that station was all I’d stream all day.
I’m also not really a country music fan, but a song from the TV show Nashville made the list this month. (Mediocre show, great music.) I’m also a bit surprised to include a Dierks Bentley song here, but I saw his episode of Crossroads with OneRepublic and liked the message of his song “I Hold On.” I still don’t know how to pronounce his name though.
