It has been December for many days now, but now that Matt's playlist it out... it finally feels official! Jen and I listened to this playlist on repeat while working the other day, and seriously couldn't get enough of it! He nailed it again. Can't wait for y'all to listen!

The Preatures - "Is This How You Feel?"
Dig the vibe of this song. I know it's winter, but we can still have fun, right?
Mapei - "Don't Wait"
This gal is on the verge of some pretty amazing stuff. Look out for her in 2014.
Band Of Skulls - "Asleep At The Wheel"
ROCK! So excited for more Band Of Skulls coming soon. This is just a taste of the rock goodness.
Birds Of Tokyo - "This Fire"
I got to use this song in a video that was shown at the Google I/O Conference this past year. Check it out:http://vimeo.com/76530660
Miami Horror - "Colours in the Sky"
Sometimes you don't need a reason... I just like it.
Lover Lover - "Embers"
Kind of feels like an Empire Of The Sun song to me...which is totally fine by me.
Jamestown Revival - "Fur Coat Blues"
Met these guys a few years back when they first moved to LA from Austin. Good dudes. Great song.
Sombear - "Easy Thief"
Tennis - "Mean Streets"
I love the retro feel to this song. Tennis is a uniquely talented band. Underrated in my opinion.
Kings Of Leon - "Coming Back Again"
Really digging the new record. They've gone back to their earlier sound but with better songwriting and production.
Snakadaktal - "Isolate"
I'm a guitar player so I love a good simple guitar hook with great tone. This one is very Explosions In The Sky, love the atmosphere and depth.
Avicii - "Hey Brother"
We've all heard "Wake Me Up" a million times now, here's the follow up. I love the genre blend that Avicii is doing with EDM right now. Smart.
White Sea - "They Don't Know"
This is the side project of Morgan Kibby from M83. Her voice is ridiculous. This song has really grown on me.Matt's All-Time Fav's //
Delta Spirit - "Salt In The Wound"
Had a request to bring back the all-time fav's to the playlist, so here it is!
Delta Spirit is one of my favorite bands out there. I first saw them at the ACL Festival several years back and was blown away by their live performance. Ever since then I've been hooked and go to see them every time they roll through LA (and you should too!). I love this song so much. The lyrics are a beast and get me everytime (check verse 2...killer!). If you aren't familiar with this band, do yourself a favor and check out all of their albums.
