This Week’s Top 11 Playlist: 09 October 2015

Every Friday, I publish a playlist of songs that have for whatever reason attracted my attention over the past week. Maybe they’ll appeal to you, too. Thanks to Mediazoic for the hosting.

9-Oct-15 1 The Crookes I Wanna Waste My Time on You Single From Sheffield, home of the Arctic Monkeys. Jangly guitars.
2 Ezra Furman Body Was Made Perpetual Motion People Chicago singer-songwriter who self-describes as “gender fluid.”
3 Suede Outsiders Night Thoughts Taste of upcoming seventh studio album due in January.
4 Joanna Newsome Sapokanikan Divers Perfect for people who think that Kate Bush and Tori Amos are too mainstream. This song needs annotating.
5 DIIV Dopamine Is the Is Are Second album from NYC band. Pronounced “Dive,” by the way.
6 Deerhunter Breaker Fading Frontier Bradford Cox and band are back. Album due October 16.
7 EL VY Return to the Moon Return to the Moon Featuring Matt Berninger from The National and Brent Knopf from Menomena.
8 Skylar Spence Affairs Prom King The artist formerly known as Saint Pepsi. No one wanted to annoy PepsiCo any more than necessary.
9 Decemberists Why Would I Now? Florasongs Five tracks that didn’t make this year’s What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World album.
10 Rococode Panic Attack Panic Attack Vancouver duo boy-boy pop duo. Depeche Mode-ish.
11 Fine Times Bad Better Bad Better EP Vancouver boy-girl synth duo. EP is out today.

    Is it possible to get the to eleven playlist in text instead of a link to a player?

    For me, the easiest way to listen to a suggested playlist is to put it on my music subscription service (Google Music).
