The great thing about being so late to releasing the August mixtape is that September is here, and the mixtape is ready to go. It goes without saying but I think this mixtape is really great, and I’m digging the heck out of the songs that are on it. Please do let me know if you’ve heard stuff that we missed this month.

Press Play Our final month of the year has officially been closed. This has been a fantastic music year, and I’ve been having a lot of fun putting together these monthly mixes again. It’s great to chronicle a year based on what you’ve been listening to, and we’re so lucky these days to have enough new music each month to put together these. I hope you enjoy some new tunes over your holiday break, and please let me know what I might have missed this month.
Press Play October was a spooky good month for new music, and I’m psyched for the broad range of music that we’ve got on this playlist. Everything from power pop jams to jangly americana to lo-fi ambling indie rock. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. As always if there’s something I missed, please leave a comment and tell me what it is.

In a culture where punishments seemingly don’t fit the crime, the final line of the song rings truer than ever.
Photos by Boston Concert Photography [T]here was a beautiful blend of dazzling voices on the Paradise stage last Sunday night and those lucky enough to have scored a ticket to the sold-out show were treated to quite a harmonious evening. Swedish sister duo First Aid Kit were days away from releasing their third album, Stay Gold, and played a number of fantastic new songs, while Massachusetts’ very own Willy Mason hushed the rowdy all-ages crowd with an opening set that delivered a heartfelt message of hope and redemption. It’s hard to believe that Johanna and Klara Söderberg released their debut album, The Big Black…
[T]he art of the cover song is one all musicians have practiced at some point in their lives, some just stick with us more than others. 2012 was filled with fantastic covers, but after a very *ahem* scientific study, the ones below were last year’s stand outs. In our minds and hearts anyway… 1.
