Compilation, Playlists | Songs You Should Know Vol. 7

Posted by on October 22, 2015

Hellooooo once again, my fellow music lovers! After a long hiatus of post-graduation soul searching, adventure seeking and couch surfing, I am happy to say I am back in the game and ready to rock your world with all the music that has been rocking mine over the past six months. It’s been a whirlwind adventure for me recently, and the winds have blown my sails all over the map as far as music goes. I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone and started binging on genres such as southern blues, classic soul, grainy 70’s surf rock, Brazilian reggae and even, dare I say, country *gasp*. So, while I typically try to keep these posts limited to recent releases of artists on the rise that need to be heard, you’re going to hear maybe some songs in these genres that aren’t exactly what you normally listen to, but just give them a chance, and if you don’t like it, hit next, because hey – there’s over 20 songs that made it on this month’s list so, plenty to choose from.

Now, let’s get to the jams.
