Tom's Takeover : October Playlist / Band of the Month.

Wednesday, 30 October 2013

Following my takeover of Leanne's blog last month in which I offered up a recommended new music September playlist and Band of the Month, I thought that I would return with what I have been listening to in October. Having seen some of the comments, I hope that people will enjoy some of the suggestions below.

I'm toying with the idea of creating and running my own blog using a 'one new song a day' type set up. Any  feedback or further suggestions whether you think people would engage with this is greatly appreciated! Perhaps, I will get it up and running in November.

New music was plentiful this month and I think I have acquired a new favourite artist with my Band of the Month. With this in mind, put your headphones in and crank the volume up as these songs are best served loud.

Band of the month : Twenty One Pilots. 

What do you get if you mix a blend of Foals, MGMT, Hellogoodbye, Flobots and Eminem? Yes, it seems a bit strange, but Twenty One Pilots have developed an alternative and diversified sound that has me hooked. 

Twenty One Pilots are a duo from America and are acquiring many new followers after their second full length release in 'Vessel'. The album offers a refreshing fusion of piano-driven uplifting rap-pop which will have you listening to over and over again. And if that wasn't enough, there's a ukelele and electro thrown in for good measure. You'd have never have thought this blend of genres would work, but Twenty One Pilots have served it up in impressive fashion.

Stand out tracks include 'Car Radio' and 'Holding On To You' which are joy to listen to. They are touring the UK in February so make sure you get some tickets fast because we will be seeing a lot more of Twenty One Pilots in the future. I will see you there.
