September Spotify Playlist of the Month

Posted on by Eric in Playlists | Leave a comment

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. Check out the full 40-track playlist below and make sure to subscribe for fresh jams every month!

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.

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

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.

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.
