Undiscovered Prince
The Purple One is back with a new album, 20Ten, which he once again decided to give away for free in some daily rag or other, and to celebrate SMP’s head honcho kieron has put together this brilliant playlist which, in his own words, is “dedicated to some of the best tracks to come out of Paisley Park over the years.” A must for all Prince fans featuring album tracks, remixes and B-sides.

A Song A Day 2010
This is a great concept for a playlist which, as the name suggests, features a song added every day during 2010. Click here for a song to suit every mood. Is your boss giving you trouble? Morrissey – Little Man, What Now? Girlfriend just dumped you? Sinead O’Connor – Nothing Compares 2 U. Do you think you left the iron on at home? Beck – It’s All In Your Mind.

StavTunes presents: July 2010
So dreary old England is finally getting some long deserved sunshine which means it’s time to expose those pasty legs in your most aggressively flowery shorts, chug cider and eat questionable BBQ chicken. While your at it why not let this awesome playlist soundtrack proceedings with sunshine friendly music from the likes of Vampire Weekend, Mystery Jets and Belle & Sebastian. Now, where’s that after sun?

Billboard R&B #1 1956-74
Here at SMP we absolutely love davinci for his comprehensive playlists covering R&B, Billboard number ones from various years. This time he has pieced together every hit from 1956 to 1974 – an amazing era for music. It doesn’t get much better than Ray Charles, Elvis Presley, Fats Domino, Chuck Berry, Nat King Cole, Sam Cooke and to0 many more to mention here, so get listening!

Spotifriday #52 by DrownedinSound.com
One of the most important musical unifications since Mr McCartney met some bloke called John took place this month. Everyone’s favourtie Spotify community (Share My Playlists of course) welcomed Drowned in Sound as its very first Playlist Partner meaning you can access each and every weekly playlist DiS creates right here at SMP. Check out their latest offering now which includes tracks from Janelle Monae with a contender for single of the year – Tightrope, M.I.A’s Come Around and The Coral amongst others.

The Soundtrack to June 2010
The Soundtrack to… is one of our most popular playlists and it’s not hard to see why when you check out the tracks on offer this month. Kele’s club banger Tenderoni, The Black Keys’s filthy blues number Howlin’ For You and industrial dance insanity from The Chemical Brothers with Escape Velocity – that’s what we’re talking about!

Phil and Phil Episode 1
Playdio is an ingenious idea that unites radio style banter with quality tunes. Amongst the shows they offer is this one from Phil Jupitus and sidekick Phil Wilding who tackle everything from Nazis to Paul Weller. Go on give it a try, we (almost) guarantee you’ll love it.

Euphoric Chillout – Volume 1
After listening to all of those magnificent playlists we think it’s just about time for a nice chillout, and what better way to do it than by listening to one more playlist. If you’re bored of regular chillouts why not try a Euphoric one. Here at SMP towers we like nothing better than listening to some Groove Armada, Zero 7 and Massive Attack to help us euphorically unwind after a hard days work. See you next month.
