VPME Recommends – Spotify Playlist July/August 2017


Here’s our latest monthly playlist for July and August. You’ll note the slight flaw in our plan when doing these monthly playlists namely we completely forgot to do last months.

So it’s a double helping and there’s some fabulous music here be it the haunting ragged beauty of EMA, Samantha Urbani’s perfect pop comeback, Juanita Stein’s country tinged take on the dark heart of the American dream, Dream Wife proving why they are one of the most exciting young bands around and the welcome return of Bully. Tired Lion give the grunge genre a right good kicking whilst Swimming Girls anthemic pop marks them out as ones to watch for 2018.  There’s even (*gasp*) The Horrors surprising us with a rather beautiful undulating pop tune that sounds not unlike an undiscovered 80’s cult classic.
