Sweetbob’s Hipster Music Playlist: August 2017

I have found a lot of good music for this month’s playlist. This music playlist started with 15 songs when it started a few years ago, then to 20 and then 25 a few months ago. Well, this list is 30 songs this month.

I don’t expect it to be 30 going forward, but I was just finding so much great stuff the last couple weeks. I still have some leftovers that will be (hopefully) incorporated next month.

I usually try to post this either a few days before the month or a day or two into the next. You know I’m having issues either finding new stuff that I love…or have way too much and try to whittle the list down as much as possible. The rate of awesome music released the last two months was just insane.

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.
