Cool Songs : September

Smart move by Floyd with the 6-14 demographic largely up for grabs in boxing.

For about the 5th time, I’ll start a post with an apology.

After an August that saw a bit of a renaissance around these parts, we damn near laid egg this in September.  If it not for an incredible Natty Morrison piece that had been sitting in the drafts for about a month, we assuredly would have given you no original content for 30 days.

I hereby pledge October will be different.

If you pay attention to this blog at all, you’d know that I always make time for a monthly playlist.  This is due in large part to the fact I make these into CDs for when I’m sitting in L.A. traffic.  I realize this is a very 2004 move.

So without further ado, 44 minutes of choice cuts.

tracklist
Kwes – 36
Celestial Shore – Valerie
Drake – Hold On, We’re Going Home
Twin Shadow – Old Love/New Love
Polica – Smug
Movement – Us
A$AP Rocky – R. Cali
The Range – Metal Swing
BANKS – Bedroom Wall
Nowhere – Dead Live
SOHN – Lessons
Four Tet – Parallel Jalebi
Say Lou Lou – Feels Like We Only Go Backwards

Also s/o to my favorite Lafayette, Indiana independent record label, Jurassic Pop, who sent me some shit I didn’t order a couple weeks ago.  Since they refuse to comply with my desires and put shit on Soundcloud so I can listen to in my car without paying them, I will embed this fantastic track from Nowhere’s self titled album here.

EDIT: The gentlemen of Nowhere reached out on Twitter with a soundcloud link! As luck would have it, it nestled perfectly into the back half.

Cool Songs : July

CubicleGuy
Another one in the books, and a particularly eventful one due to my reinstated unemployment.  Everybody wins when Matt doesn’t need to put on pants until he starts getting paranoid about life still existing outside his front door and ventures to the coffee shop (To get attacked by a fucking dog).

A recap of the month that was here at SOH:
Son of Hilljack’s 10 Most “Watchable Movies”
Best Albums of 2013 (Thus Far)
The Best Original SyFy Movies
6 People Who Might Be Satan (According to the Internet)
The 10 Silent Film Actors You See At, Like, Every Summer Music Festival

What’s even stranger than our recent bout of productivity is the fact people are actually reading this shit.  Some of you guys even repost these links on Facebook and Twitter and, on behalf of all of us, that is the coolest favor ever.  Thank You.

Best Thing That Happened in July

– BFF’s of this blog Jurassic Pop put out the cassette release of Mac DeMarco from Russian Recording in Bloomington, IN, and it very much blew up.  They were on Pitchfork and Spin and a bunch of other reputable domains.  If you’re not familiar with their catalog, I recommend listening to every single fucking release.  I’m not kidding you, they’re all incredible.

Prediction For Best Thing That Happens In August

– Breaking Bad.  It’s going to be an intense 7 weeks.

 Tracklist:
Diana – Perpetual Surrender (Four Tet Remix)
La Luz – Brainwash
Freddie Gibbs & Madlib feat. Karriem Riggins – City
Billie Holiday – My Man (Toro y Moi Remix)
Summer Camp – Fresh
Jacques Greene – Faithful
London Grammar – Strong
Friends – The Way
Mac DeMarco – Young Blood
Explosions In The Sky & David Wingo – Join Me On My Avalanche
Guy Andrews – 7AM
Local Natives – You & I (Local Natives Remix)
Spirit Animal – Forever Ago
BOY/FRIEND – Leather Weather (Brenmar Remix)
