What To Listen To Now

If it wasn’t for my friend, Matt, I would be completely out of the cool music loop (and not legally married but that’s a story for another day).  After a few years of doing music supervision for Chop Shop Music and placing songs on popular TV shows like Gossip Girl and Grey’s Anatomy, Matt is currently the music coordinator for Disney films as well as the music supervisor for many of Google’s recent ads.  He is constantly introducing me to new music and great bands and I figured it was about time I shared the love!  Matt was kind enough to put together his picks for what we should be listening to in October.  Be sure to take a listen and let him know how much you love it… then maybe we can get him to come back in November ; )

The Helio Sequence – October

I guess it makes sense to start it off an October Playlist with a song called “October”, right? This band is one of my favorites right now. Their new album, Negotiations is incredibly gorgeous.

Icky Blossoms – Heat Lightning
One of the best shows I saw at SXSW this year.

Stars – Hold On When You Get Love And Let Go When You Give It
You gotta love a song with a title that long. It’s a rule. This is their best since “Your Ex-Lover Is Dead” (also a great title).

Ponderosa – Navajo
Not sure why this band is so under the radar. They are amazing!

The Killers – Miss Atomic Bomb
Just saw them in concert for the first time. Wow. That is all. (Listen for the “Mr. Brightside” call back in there)

Daughter – Smother
Geeze…tear jerker!

Wild Cub – Thunder Clatter
This one will help you remember all the fun pool parties you went to this summer.

Anderson East – Lonely
I’m a HUGE Ryan Adams fan. This sounds like Ryan Adams. Therefore, I like it.

Savoir Adore – Dreamers
Heard this song awhile ago and instantly dug it. Debut LP comes out later this month.

The Griswolds – Heart of a Lion
You serious, Clark? If you get that reference…we can be friends.

Mikky Ekko – We Must Be Killers
This dude is going to take over the world.
