Monthly Mixtape – May 2018

I’ve spent much of May listening to terrific new albums by Janelle Monáe and Courtney Barnett, but here are some stray songs I like too.

Joshua Hedley – “Mr. Jukebox”

Tancred – “Queen of New York”

Hinds – “The Club”

Kamasi Washington – “Space Travelers Lullaby”

Monthly Mixtape — April 2018

I’ve been busy Blogging A to Z all April, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t had time to listen to some new music.  Here are some of my favorite new songs released in the past month or so.

Balún– ‘El Espanto”

Meiko – “Back in the Game”

Nilüfer Yanya – “Baby Luv”

Superorganism – “Everybody Wants to Be Famous”

Neko Case – “Hell-On”

Scrunchies – “Stunner”

What new songs are YOU listening to?

Monthly Mixtape – February 2018

I haven’t posted any Songs of the Week this year, and I’ve decided to retire SOTW and instead make a monthly post of new songs I like.  Hence the term “Monthly Mixtape.”

The title song off of Courtney Marie Andrews upcoming album is “May Your Kindness Remain”


The James Hunter Six provides Daptone soul in “I Got Eyes”

Australian electronica artists Jono Ma and Dreems collaborate on “Can’t Stop my Dreaming (Of You)”

Parliament returns with their first track in decades “I’m Gon Make U Sick O’Me (feat. Scarface)” and it’s funky in a 21st century way.

As always, let me know what you like, what you don’t like, and what other songs I should be listening to.
