I have to admit that I set out to create a much more mellow October playlist than the one I’m sharing with you today. I initially had a vision of cozy fall evenings in mind but inspiration ultimately took me in a much different direction. This edition of Music Mondays therefore covers a wide range of genres and, for that reason, is probably more representative of my musical tastes than any playlist has previously been.
My October playlist includes a few newer artists like Wiktoria, a Swedish singer and songwriter with a sound that is equal parts country and soul. You’ll find a killer collaboration between Kaskade and deadmau5 featuring Skylar Grey which I can only describe as hauntingly melodic. The playlist also features my favorite standbys of late, The Chainsmokers and ZHU, as well as some old friends. Hello Green Day and Kings of Leon, you have been missed. What can I say? This playlist has my heart.
