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!

Keds And Taylor Swift 1989 Style Event

IN THIS PHOTO: Taylor Swift/PHOTO CREDIT: Kevin Mazur

treated to a  veritable buffet of stunning songs. There are new singles/videos from Morrissey, Dizzee Rascal and The National; Taylor Swift, Royal Blood and Plan B. Franz Ferdinand have released their first new music in years: plenty of other gems from all corners of the music world. The mainstream has come to play and it is a buzzing and packed week of tremendousness. In addition, there are some fascinating movements from the underground; a range of newly-released albums – and those songs that are destined to stay in the head for weeks.

Swift’s song is the biggest of this week, I guess, but there are more high-profile releases than I thought there would be! As we head towards Hallowe’en; it is interesting seeing the music arriving and the consistency of quality – it all bodes well for the first edition of The November Playlist

Who knows what we will get as we head into November?! I can guarantee there will be yet more surprises releases, mainstream stamps and those under-the-radar bangers!

out this week. Morrissey brings us the video for Spent the Day in Bed. There are new offerings from King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Charlie Puth and MGMT; some sizzlers from Jessie Ware, Weezer and Off BloomGeorge Maple and Frank Tuner in there, too. It is a great week for music and one that guarantees the steeliest and most rigid music listener will have their tastebuds quenched.

I am thrilled to see the sheer variety of sounds that have come through this week. Let’s hope things continue because next week, as we know, is the last Playlist before Hallowe’en…

A great and fulsome week for those who love their music stunning and addictive. It is wonderful seeing a new Morrissey video in addition to everything new music has to offer – from the best of the underground to those mainstream swipes.

Let’s continue to hope brilliant new music follows: next week might be an even bigger one!

Beck, Robert Plant and St. Vincent mean we are not exactly short of world-class music this week! It is rare seeing a trinity of year-best-potential records arrive on the same day. I have included songs from each artist’s new release – Colors, Carry Fire and MASSEDUCTION, respectively – and collate fresh inspiration from Noel Gallagher, Dave and Lo Moon. It is a week where some true titans nestle alongside the newcomers – those making their way to the mainstream.

After a couple of weeks – that have promised great music but few epic selections – it seems this is the week where we can reclaim some of that giddy headiness…

That should be enough to tuck into this weekend! It is amazing seeing Beck, Robert Plant and St. Vincent release on the same day. Other albums – including the new one from King Gizzard and the Wizard Lizard – should not go unrecognised.

I am excited seeing how October pans out and what other treats there are in store for us all!

THERE are not many big releases…

Image may contain: 1 person, indoor

IN THIS PHOTO: HAIM

this week but there are new offerings from Sam Smith and HAIM – a fresh video from the latter. It is an interesting week in terms of the blend of music and sounds. I am interested in new albums by Liam Gallagher and The Darkness; tracks from Soulwax and Blue Hawaii – there are some interesting treats and below-the-radar songs worth investigating. A full and varied assortment of tracks from the biggest stars in music – and those making their way through at the minute.

It is an intriguing and exciting start to October and ensures fascination and curiosity will remain over the next few weeks.

This week has seen a few interesting albums (Liam Gallagher among them) but St. Vincent is bringing one out next week. We cannot reach the giddy heights of the Benjamin Clementine/Wolf Alice week – two year-defining albums releases right at once! Maybe October will see some huge albums come out but it seems like the tracks will be more interesting and solid.

I am looking forward to next week and what comes out; how many big songs arrive – and what treasures will drop from the musical heavens.
