Spotify Playlist of the Month January 2013

Posted on by Eric in Playlists | Leave a comment

With all of the end of the year hullabaloo we admittedly slacked a bit on the first playlist of 2013. No need to fret any longer as our inaugural playlist of 2013 is finally here. The January edition features new music from some old M&T faves like Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Teen Daze, and Toro Y Moi along with some fresh faces such as Haim, Villagers and Pretty & Nice. Check out this month’s playlist below and remember to subscribe for 20 new tracks each month.

My how time flies when you’re listening to great music. Somehow it’s December already, which means that it’s time to hunker down with some hot chocolate and our final monthly Spotify playlist of 2012. Our December playlist features new music from some M&T favorites like And The Giraffe, Punch Brothers, and Typhoon, along with fresh faces such as Bearstronaut, The New Highway Hymnal, and Soccer Mom. Check out the full playlist below and make sure to click the subscribe button so that you’ll get 20 new tracks from us each month.

Spotify Playlist of the Month November 2012

Posted on by Eric in Playlists | Leave a comment

November means it’s starting to get colder and almost time to chow down on turkey and cranberry sauce. November also means 20 new songs from some of our favorite artists. This month’s playlist features fresh jams from bands like Mean Creek, Ben Sollee, Titus Andronicus and plenty others. We also cheated a bit in our interpretation of “new” music this month. Last year we covered Big Scary’s LP Vacation, but it wasn’t until this month that the record finally got a worldwide release. For former Boston-based quartet Black Light Dinner party, some tracks from their B.L.D.P EP have been floating around the interwebs since 2011, but the full release just hit Spotify and iTunes this week. So we cheated a bit, who really cares? Good music is good music and we are extremely excited to share these 20 tracks with you. Remember to subscribe to get 20 new tracks each month!
