I’m always five minutes late for everything, but now I’m an entire week late uploading October’s playlist. I’m not surprised, just disappointed.
I am going to start by talking about Slipknot and Bring Me The Horizon, because they are both on my playlist with new(!) songs that make me want to comb my fringe over and spend my Saturdays drinking cheap cider outside a church and running away from Community Support Officers. Bring Me The Horizon! And Dani Filth! I think there’s actual breeing in there too?! Frankly, anyone who has not yet accepted that BMTH are a fantastic and deserving arena rock band is wrong and needs to grow up.
Before you get that far, the October playlist opens with three strong pop hits from The 1975 (inspired by Belinda Carlisle, perhaps?), Sigrid and Charly Bliss, followed by feel-good guitar music of varied sensibility by Sports Team, The XCERTS (should be more successful than Biffy Clyro, sorry) and Steve Lamacq’s latest 6 Music darlings, Squid.
The remainder of the playlist is more mellow; my personal highlights are the new tracks from boygenius (do yourself a favour and listen to their wonderful EP in full), The KVB, Westerman, and the A Star Is Born soundtrack. Thanks.
