December '16 Playlist / by Julia Walck

Despite the candy cane type, this playlist isn't related to Christmas at all. But it does feature a ton of new indie tunes, which are sort of like presents.

  • Bonobo announced a new album titled "Migration", set to release on January 13. Naturally I checked out their tour dates and there were no LA shows. However, there was one at Red Rocks in Colorado so I guess it's going to be a weekend trip! Stoked. 
  • Stop Me is Chet Faker's first single out under his new (and real) name, Nick Murphy.
  • Childish Gambino came out with a few singles gearing up for a full length and he's exploring such different sounds. Getting a real soulful Leon Bridges vibe from it.
  • Kick Jump Twist by Sylvan Esso will make you want to do just that. Get ready to dance out of your chair.

 

PS If you are looking for a Christmas playlist, you can check out "Merry Folking Christmas" here. I'll be adding even more indie X-Mas tunes within the coming weeks.
