Showcasing the Best New Music, Curating the Classics

PLAYLIST: October 2019

October 2019 has at least offered us the smallest silver lining in the form of new music, despite the outside world seeming to be creeping closer to the precipice of outright insanity.

The clear highlight of the month has been a North American indie love-in – after collaborating with Conor Oberst on the understated Better Oblivion Community Center album that surprised us all back in January, Phoebe Bridgers has undertaken another creative coupling, this time with The National’s Matt Berninger on an excellent new track called ‘Walking On A String’ taken from the ‘Between Two Ferns’ movie.

Meanwhile, big new albums have been announced this month from the likes of Dan Snaith’s Caribou guise, British indie acts Blossoms, Gengahr and The Orielles, Canadian veterans Wolf Parade, plus the iconic musical polymath that is Beck.

That’s on top of a whole mess of individual great tunes, from artists ranging from Mercury-nominated Slowthai who’s hooked up with Denzel Curry for ‘Psycho’, to electronica madness from Irish producer Space Dimension Controller. Oh, and the small matter of a newbie from 2016’s Album of the Year winner Frank Ocean
