The August Playlist

 

_________________________

WITH my blog having just passed the 650 posts mark…

it seemed appropriate to mark it somehow: tying with the recent Mercury Prize nominations; I have put together The August Playlist– a selection of the best new cuts from the prize nominees; the best of the rest from the mainstream’s finest. It would be great to hear some thought and have others suggested; get a good glimpse into opinions and consensus- any songs I have foolishly overlooked. I have a look at  songs that have defined the last month or so- and look set to continue that momentum through August…

It has been great hitting the 650th post (651 now) and look set to keep going for as long as possible. Keep suggestions and track tips in. This year has produced some truly astonishing music; not just from new music but the mainstream too. That momentum looks set to continue as Jamie T, Pixies, and De La Soul looks set to release new albums. After the tragedy and upset of the first few months (of 2016) it looks like the remainder of this year will be very bright indeed…
