[Last Thursday’s Playlist] New Music Night XIII at River Gods

Posted on November 25, 2013 at 7:03 am | No Comments

The 13th installment of New Music Night, our final DJ night of 2013, happened last Thursday over at River Gods in Cambridge, MA. Unlucky number, my arse. Good times took place as Jay Clicky Clicky and I served up nothing but new sounds for four hours straight.

So what did we play during our stint in the DJ booth? Glad you asked, ‘cuz I happen to have my playlist right here, and it took me longer to pull together and write up than it did to actually spin. So take advantage, and follow the links to download/listen/buy. There’s a wealth of new aural greatness below…

And be sure to step on over to Clicky Clicky for Jay’s ace playlists, where there’s more valuable info and aural pleasure to be found. #NewMusicNight returns in January, where there’ll undoubtedly be plenty of new songs to be shared.
