May 2015 Spotify Playlist

With temperatures up over 70 degrees here in Brooklyn today, it’s fair to say that spring has arrived. Maybe it’s because we’re so excited about the weather, but once again we’ve got a playlist loaded with bonus tracks this month. Instead of our normal 20 songs we’ve created our longest playlist to date with 50 fresh jams for you to check out during the month of May. Highlights include new tunes from Blur, Titus Andronicus, The Barr Brothers, The Ballroom Thieves, Only RealMiniboone, and even X-Files star David Duchovny. Yea, he made a record, and it’s surprisingly good. Not to mention a beautiful new track from our friends in The Western Den, who are also in the midst of an Indiegogo campaign to fund their upcoming tour. Check out the full 50-track playlist below and remember to subscribe for new tuneage every month.

April Spotify Playlist of the Month

Posted on by Eric in Playlists | Leave a comment

Maimed & Tamed Spotify Playlist of the Month April 2015To say that March was a big month for new releases would be quite the understatement. Over the past month we saw full-length releases from bands in the upper echelon of indie rock like Death Cab for Cutie, Modest Mouse, and The Cribs, along with M&T favorites such as Houndmouth, Lady Lamb (no longer a beekeeper I guess…), Twin Shadow and more. Not to mention fresh singles from our favorite new band, Great Caesar, and our favorite band of all-time, My Morning Jacket. As you might have guessed, this influx of incredible new tunes in March means an inflated playlist in April. Check out the full 40-track playlist below and remember to subscribe for fresh jams every month.

Maimed & Tamed Spotify Playlist of the Month March 2015

March means the flowers are starting to bloom, the birds are starting to sing, and there’s still 6 feet of snow on the ground…Can’t win ’em all right? Good thing for you though is that we here at Maimed & Tamed aren’t going to let a little snow keep us from delivering you some brand new jams this month. We’ve even added an additional 10 bonus tracks to our normal 20 song playlist because we love you all that much. This month features the return of various M&T favorites including Two Gallants, Built to Spill, Alabama Shakes, Krill, and more. Check out the full playlist below and remember to subscribe for 20 new tracks every month.

Maimed & Tamed Spotify Playlist of the Month February 2015

For us native New Englanders February feels best directly following a Patriots Super Bowl victory, especially when our resident photographer Andrew got to snap the photo above of Julian Edelman in all of his Duck Boat glory. Lucky for the rest of you though that February also means a brand new playlist from all of us here at M&T. This month’s playlist features a former M&T album of the year winner in Lady Lamb the Beekeper, along with an early contender for 2015 album of the year in Hey Rosetta!, among many others. Check out the full playlist (plus 5 bonus tracks because we love you that much) below and remember to subscribe for 20 brand new tunes every month.

To kick off the new year we have a playlist full of fresh jams for your listening pleasure. This month’s playlist features new tracks from familiar artists like Father John Misty, San Fermin, and Modest Mouse along with newcomers such as Happy You, Low Key, and more.

We are going to hold on to summer as long as we can here at the M&T HQ and we highly suggest that you turn on our September playlist and do the same. Once again we are trying to cram as many new jams as possible into the end of summer so we’ve got an extra special playlist for your this month with double the tunes. End of summer saw the release of two more Album of the Year candidates in Rubblebucket and Will Dailey who are featured on this month’s playlist alongside other M&T favorites like The Griswolds and Nemes, as well as new faces such as Alvvays, #1 Dads, and STL GLD.

August Spotify Playlist of the Month

Posted on by Eric in Playlists | Leave a comment

July was quite the month for new jams, which means that our August playlist is packed with hits. As we near the 3/4 mark on 2014, it’s clear to see that some of the best tunes from this year were released to liven up the dog days of summer. Jenny Lewis’ Voyager and Vacationer’s Relief, who are both represented on this month’s playlist, have catapulted themselves into the record of the year discussion. Meanwhile familiar faces like Jeff Tweedy and Robert Plant have teased us with singles from their forthcoming releases. All this and more make for an action packed August playlist which you can check out and subscribe to below. Once again we can’t thank our resident photographer, Andrew Cleak (@sandmanmusic), enough for the incredible images he provides for our playlists each month.

So put your headphones in, turn it up, and enjoy the rest of summer.
