EXIT HERE: The Final Playlist of 2015


This came sooner than I anticipated.

To properly close out 2015, I've gathered the following tunes that shall provide a non-holiday soundtrack you can enjoy in between spins of Mariah's "All I Want for Christmas" and other jingles you won't be able to escape once Thanksgiving is done. (Don't worry -- a new holiday playlist is also coming soon.)

BTW, that new Sia single (track 5)? I get a sore throat every time I play it. But it's so worth it.

Song of the Month: November 2015


Not since circa-1992 Annie Lennox has there been a song about stepping on glass that has captured my musical imagination.

Introducing St. Lucia's fantastic new must-listen, "Dancing on Glass," a synthy piece of pop perfection from the South African-born Jean-Philip Grobler. It's, as the folks at PopWrapped have called it, a "catchy and nostalgic extravaganza of an electro-pop tune."

That said, it will keep me occupied throughout the days leading up to the gorgefest we call Thanksgiving. Check it out:
