July Spotify Playlist of the Month

Posted on by Eric in Playlists | Leave a comment

Christmas in July is almost upon us once again, so what better way to get amped up than M&T’s July playlist that just so happens to contain new music from Newport Folk Fest acts past (First Aid Kit), present (Ryan Adams, PHOX), and hopefully future (Montaigne, The Rare Occasions). Our fearless photographer, Andrew Cleak (@sandmanmusic), has even provided the perfect image for our July playlist featuring Trombone Shorty from last year’s Newport festivities.

June Spotify Playlist of the Month

Posted on by Eric in Playlists | Leave a comment

June has just kicked off, but for some reason Mother Nature doesn’t think we deserve consistently sunny days quite yet. To help deter the depressing thoughts of a delayed summer we’ve put together an extra badass playlist for your listening enjoyment this month. The June 2014 edition of our monthly Spotify playlist features the perfect summer tune from The Griswolds, a long-anticipated fresh jam from M&T favorite Liam Finn, our new emo guilty pleasure from Foxing, and 17 other delectable tracks.

May is in full swing and with summer just around the corner, we’ve got just the set of tunes you need to enjoy the change of seasons. This month’s playlist features new tracks from Deleted Scenes, Grey Season, Dwight & Nicole, and what may potentially be the song of the summer in Bleachers’ “I Wanna Get Better.”

April Spotify Playlist of the Month

Posted on by Eric in Playlists | Leave a comment

Last September we had too many tunes worth sharing and ended up with a 40-track playlist instead of our normal 20. Well there must be something in the air now that all the snow has melted, because we’ve got another mega playlist chock full of fresh springtime jams. This month’s playlist features lots of local talent (Krill, Faces on Film, Art Decade, Spirit KidGirls Guns and Glory), a few early favorites for album of the year (Sisyphus and Big Scary), and loads of other bands that we are just flat out excited about (Thumpers, Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes, Mt Warning, Saintseneca, et al).

It’s hard to believe we’ve been at this blogging game since 2010, and four years later we can still pay the bills to keep this bad boy running. All nostalgia aside, the M&T crew is beyond excited for what 2014 will bring and we’ve put together 20 fresh tracks to prove it to you. This month’s playlist features new music from Jose Gonzalez, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Oddisee, The War on Drugs, and Snoop Dogg (apparently he is going by Snoopzilla these days?) even found his way onto the playlist too with his 7 Days of Funk project.

Holy shit it’s December. We have no idea how that happened, but we do know that there’s still plenty of good music to share in 2013. The final playlist of 2013 is a mix of newcomers that we are very excited about like Mapei and Mutual Benefit, mixed in with M&T faves such as Big Scary, Blessed Feathers, and The Last Bison.

October Spotify Playlist of the Month

Posted on by Eric in Playlists | Leave a comment

Between the crisp air and the leaves starting to turn, it’s quite clear that it’s fall here in New England. M&T favorites Big Scary may have best described the turning of seasons in their 2010 song “Hamilton”– “It’s the time of year when the morning keeps you under the sheets.” It’s that time of year where we wish we could sleep a bit later with some hot cider at our bedside when we finally do rise, but now that summer is gone we’ve started sifting through new tunes to bring you 20 fresh tracks to accompany all of your favorite apple flavored treats.

Our October Spotify playlist features a spattering of artists from various genres and regions of the world. From New Zealand dance-pop quintet The Naked and Famous to Brooklyn folk duo This Frontier Needs Heroes, and of course everything else in between. Check out the full playlist below and make sure to subscribe for 20 brand-spanking-new tracks every month!
