What To Listen To Now // November

MM NOV

I can’t think of a better way to ring in November than listening to Matt Mugford’s playlist of the month! If Matt recommends the jams, we know they must be good. I didn’t know if anything could beat last month’s playlist… but trust me ladies and gentlemen, he does it once again and gives us the best of the best! Having trouble listening? Click here.

Lucy Schwartz – “Ghost In My House”
Lucy is a force. I met her awhile back when she and Aqualung had a song in Breaking Dawn 1 and she is truly an amazing creative talent. I heard this song several months ago and was instantly hooked. So so good.

James Vincent McMorrow – “Cavalier”
Holy crap. This guys voice continues to amaze me.

Tove Lo – “Habits”
Dig this girl. Her newest song, “Out Of Mind” is sure to be on a future playlist once spotify gets wise and gets it. You can check it out here though: http://youtu.be/_65tLeIWtx0

John Newman – “Love Me Again”
Dance it out, guys.

Khushi – “Magpie
Stumbled upon this band a bit ago and am pretty much in love with this song. On repeat. Horns at the end = Yes.

Night Terrors of 1927 – “Young And Vicious
This band is on the verge of something. I’ve heard some of their other upcoming songs, and this is just a taste.

Birdy – “Wings”
Such a great voice.

Sky Ferreira – “You’re Not The One
Do NOT google her new album cover. Yikes.

Brett Dennen – “Out Of My Head
Um…Tom Petty anyone?! Why don’t more artists try this sound?

London Grammar – “Strong
I’m a little late to the game on them, but I just can’t get this song out of my head. Had to be included.

Active Child – “Silhouette (feat. Ellie Goulding)

My wife and I just had a child last month, and he is very active. Does anyone read these things?

The Jezabels – “The End
I like when girls aren’t afraid to rock. This band is way too underrated.

San Fermin – “Sonsick”

There is a remix of this song that I absolutely love, but since Spotify doesn’t have it, we’ll have to go with the original version…which is great too! Check out the remix here: https://soundcloud.com/san-fermin-1/san-fermin-sonsick-magic-man

      Matt’s playlists are my favorite thing about starting a new month!

  2. We have really similar taste and I always look forward to these posts of yours =D. I’ve actually been obsessed with that remix of Sonsick for weeks and only just listened to the original for the first time because my friend recommended San Fermin to me totally separately. I’m also obsessed with Flatline by Mutya Keisha Siobhan right now as well as the newish Haim, Chvrches, & St. Lucia albums. I read those descriptions! Please keep up these awesome playlists.

    • Also love James Vincent McMorrow! Discovered him through the movie Third Star which stars my favorite actor. Follow You Down to the Red Oak Tree is about 10x sadder if you’ve seen that film. Glad to hear a song from him I hadn’t heard before!

      Thanks, Meredith! Matt’s playlists literally get me through the day some days!

  4. I think I’m the only one who comments on these playlists, lol:)
    I just wanted to say that London Grammar has been on serious repeat fe me lately, having discovered them from another music blog a few months ago. Most of the time I like one, maybe two tracks from any given album. I pretty much adore every song on London Grammar’s debut album. It’s like a found gem in an antiquity shop. Listen now. You won’t be sorry!

  5. I just wanted to say that London Grammar has been on serious repeat for me lately, having discovered them from another music blog a few months ago. Most of the time I like one, maybe two tracks from any given album. I pretty much adore every single song on London Grammar’s debut album. It’s like a found gem in an antiquity shop. Listen now. You won’t be sorry!
