Best of the Month - August 2013 Contenders Mix

Yep, MP3s are back, and just in time, because Spotify only comes through with 18 of the 30 songs on this month's list.*  This is mostly due to the large number of pre-release singles floating around the blogosphere from what looks like an incredible slate of early-September releases (Okkervil River, Neko Case, Volcano Choir, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, The 1975, San Fermin, etc.).

And just think, you guys.  This time next next month, full-length albums by CHVRCHES and Haim will exist in the world.  Keep hope alive.  September will save us all.

If you missed it, download the July mix here.

  1. Yay! Glad the downloads are back! Love your has introduced me to so much great new music. Thanks!

  2. SO SO glad to have the downloads back again! I look forward to your contenders list every month. Thanks for all the work you put into it. I love your taste in music (well maybe not the rap songs, but no one is perfect). :)

  3. Thanks for the great music selection. I don't listen to radio much because min my part of the world, it's a choice between country, classic rock and some rap that I don't care for much. Consequently I tend to listen to the same stuff over and over. Thanks for the mp3's and the great new music all the time. I may not care for all of it, but it pushes my boundaries and introduces me to some new artists I love.
