Another terrific week with some sturdy and stocky musical slams to get your ears around…

We are creeping ever-nearer to December so that means there will be more Christmas-scented tracks. I know there will be the more traditional elements among them – offering that balance and relief.

Keep your ears and eyes open to see what is coming in the next week – I shall do my best from this side…

 Vol.2: When Jacky and Taylor Stepped Onto the Stage…

_______

NOT only does Morrissey have a new single out…

Image result for ready for it taylor swift

IN THIS PHOTO: Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift’s album, Reputation, has been scoring big reviews! It seems the much-hyped U.S. Pop star has proved doubters wrong and produced one of the most compelling records of the year. Eminem has introduced a new track – Walk on Water features Beyoncé – and it is a solid and extraordinary thing. Among the singles/videos are cuts from Elvis Costello, Lucy Rose and Ghostpoet.

There are new, and intriguing, offerings from Angel Olsen and Elbow; some interesting singles from the underground; all the best and brightest videos in music – enough for everyone to get their chops into!

I am pleased there is a nice blend of big releases and great lesser-heard artists. That is the case reach week but, in Morrissey and Taylor Swift, there are two titans – from different corners of music – showing what they are made of. I hope this pace and explosion continues through November: a fantastic month so far – that looks set to get stronger and more exciting.

It is edging close to Christmas but, so far, there have not been too many awful seasonal songs – that might all change! I am enjoying the array of music and the wonderful albums; unexpected songs and arresting videos – as this week’s bountiful selection shows!

week for music. There are some big releases from Taylor Swift, U2 and Gorillaz; some terrific offerings from RAYE, JONES and Young Fathers – a real stack of brilliant tunes. This is the first Playlist of November so it would be unavoidable were I to mention words like ‘sparkler’, ‘banger’ and ‘fireworks’ – I shall dispense from such easy punning. What I do know is there are enough solid songs for everyone to get their teeth into.

I am not sure how the rest of this month will play out but I am confident there are going to be a lot of great songs – as we head towards Christmas. Of course; the end of the year sees us all besieged by Christmas songs: just as well November is providing traditional, reliable and non-cheesy music for the masses…

Quite a bumper crop for the most refined and educated musical taste buds! That said; there is a mixture of mainstream gems and some intriguing underground slices – what you’d expect from a Playlist selection. I will continue to delve deep and ensure next week’s selection is as ripe and rewarding. It is down to fireworks displays and bonfires we head this week.

Ensure you are careful and take good caution when attending events – stay safe and warp up warm!
