New Music for Commute


#1

Hey y’all,

I have a decent commute every day for work, and I am constantly struggling to find new music to keep myself occupied for the trip. I seem to always rotate between the same bands. So, I thought this thread could be put to good use so I could find more music to check out and would help anyone else having trouble finding new tunes. Things I am listening to right now:

Sylvan Esso – What Not
Ryan Adams – Heartbreaker & Prisoner
Kendrick Lamar – DAMN.
Joey Bada$$ – B4.DA.$$
Oso Oso – The Yunahon Mixtape
Alex G – The new “Bobby” single
Sampha – Process

Also, don’t stop at music – podcasts are great, too! Thanks, Waypointers!

I read this as “New Music for Communes” but I’m okay with either tbh


#3

I’d recommend:
Cashmere Cat - 9
Alix Perez & SpectraSoul - Synergy EP
Any of the singles Frank Ocean has released this year


#4

+1 on any Frank Ocean

also gonna shout out mai boi James Vincent McMorrow’s latest EP We Move

and in particular I Lie Awake at Night which is a killer track


#5

I’ve taken upon listening to the pianist Ryo Fukui’s live albums, his stuff is just fantastic

Would also recommend John Carpenter’s soundtrack work - and his non-soundtrack albums as of late, like Lost Themes and Lost Themes II

Syd - Fin
