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!

RIGHT near the end of October and we have been…

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

Such a mouthwatering selection of songs this week! It is amazing seeing all those huge songs packed into a single edition. From Morrissey’s awesome latest to Taylor Swift and Royal Blood – some meaty and epic songs for all tastes.

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…

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!

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.

of the year arrive at once. We have Wolf Alice’s Visions of a Life and Benjamin Clementine’s I Tell a Fly. It is a fantastic double and shows what terrific British music there is right now. In addition to a track from each album; there are new ones from Ezra Furman and BANKS; videos from Maggie Rogers and The Horrors – a lovely selection of big-name releases and those rarer-than-most gems. It is always good seeing the full breadth of music come to the fore.

Among the mainstream best are sensational Rap and Urban tracks; Indie smashes and some incredible Pop moments – guaranteeing the last September Playlist is a smash!

I am keen to see what comes in October and the type of music that will appear. September has been a really full and exciting one. So many terrific albums and songs have revealed themselves and that can only continue – let’s see what else the autumn has to throw at us! It is a wonderful and rich time for music right now.

I will wrap up this edition but have been delighted by the range and quality of this week’s Playlist…

a single from Morrissey is upon us! It is first cut to be taken from his upcoming album, Low in High School. Spent the Day in Bed is a typically sharp and memorable track from Moz that is an instant stunner – a song you do not have to hear too many times to fall for. Julia Jacklin and Maggie Rogers have songs out: a video from King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard is out in the atmopshere – another jammed and eventful Playlist!

There are not quite as many mainstream smashes as weeks past – but there is enough top-quality music for anyone to get their teeth into…

It is a good week for music and a nice mix of mainstream big and the promising underground. I am excited to see how Morrissey progresses and whether any more singles come forth. I’m always fascinated discovering the music videos emerging and what form they take.

I will keep my eyes open to see what promises are thrown up for next week – in the final edition of The September Playlist.
