We wanted to make the Fourth of July a little extra special, so we held off our monthly Hipster Music Playlist until the holiday.
This month’s playlist is a mixture of new bands and established bands that recently put out new music we love. I was a little too excited to see Hot Hot Heat come out with a new album.
I always keep an ear out for new music. I love discovering new bands/songs, it’s a habit from my days as a music journalist. Even though this is mostly a sports blog, I still add quite a bit of music and pop culture content. Keep sending me tracks via email or Twitter. I love checking out all the recommendations you send. Keep them comin’!
I feel like this month’s list is fantastic. We super-sized the list once again with 20 tracks for your ears to drool over (also, don’t forget to check out our Spotify playlist).
