New Releases – August 2011

Each and every month we’re creating a playlist dedicated to the very latest Spotify releases. Updated weekly – or any other time we discover tracks we think you’ll like – this is the best place to check out the best new music around. Currently ready and waiting for you on this month’s edition are tracks from Blink 182, Ed Sheeran, Among Brothers, Yuck; a killer Serban Ghenea remix of Björk’s Cosmogony and the new, incredible Balearic-indebted release from Paul Weller.

The Soundtrack to July 2011

The beginning of the month is always a particularly exciting time here at SMP Towers, as our favourite monthly mixtapes make their way from your brains to our hompage. The granddaddy of all of our regular playlists is The Soundtrack to…, by Phil Wilce. The best of a brilliant collection of new music, as far as we’re concerned, comes in the shape of Maverick Sabre, The Horrors, The Chemical Brothers, Toddla T, Sbtrkt and Tom Vek.

August 2011 – Acid Jazz Hispano

The Acid Jazz Hispano series seems to get better and better each month, turning in the coolest cuts of funky, jazzy, soulful, housey, hip-hop beats. This month is no exception. Featured here: Mark Ronson feat. Kasabian, Los Amigos Invisibles, Prince, Roy Ayers… need we go on? We will anyway: Gladys Knight & The Pips, Marvin Gaye, Alabama 3, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Joe Smooth, Amy Winehouse and tons more. If you only listen to one playlist today – don’t, listen to loads! – make it this one.
