October '17 Playlist by Julia Walck


Boo! The October Playlist is here!

Here are some highlights:

  • Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile are making music together! Their new album is called Lotta Sea Lice and it's out the 13th of this month! They just released this video for the song Continental Breakfast; it's basically them hanging out with friends and family and it's really just the sweetest.
  • Morrissey has a new song, Spent the Day in Bed, and I'm not quite sure how I feel about it yet... but I'm excited to hear more from him.
  • An out of the blue album release is rare, but Deer Tick one-upped us and released 2 albums out of nowhere in mid-September. If you're an alt-country-type, they have a show at the Teragram on November 11.
  • If you like Angel Olsen, you'll probably like Lomelda. Everyone needs some mellow angelic singing in their lives, and this song happens to be perfect for driving. 
  • Okay so this has nothing to do with this month's playlist, but Wolf Parade's new album Cry Cry Cry comes out October 6, but you can stream it now on NPR

PS: This Halloween, (okay technically October 28), you can find me at the KCRW Masquerade Ball. There's going to be music by The Black Madonna, Matthew Dear, Tensnake, Moon Boots and more! See you there?

November '16 Playlist by Julia Walck

Did you know November is National Pomegranate Month? Neither did I. Did you also know the November playlist is ready for a listen? (You probably knew I was gearing up to that). 

Here's some highlights:

  • The Shins just released a new single called "Dead Alive". You can watch the video here ft. James Mercer falling asleep watching TV and dreaming. So many miniatures! 
  • "World Inside" by Nightmares on Wax is a good, poppy electro background track.
  • Palehound is like a female Mac DeMarco and I dig it.
