It was tricky to compress this month's best music into a two-hour playlist, in part because I was making more of a note of tracks to go into it. I probably could've done three hours, but in the end decided to concentrate on stuff not found elsewhere on the blog to counterbalance the tracks representing the month's Recommended Albums - of which there were five: three albums and two EP's - and Singles of the Week - of which there should be more of; I might have to move the day I do them on for that. I'm currently also listening to some albums from earlier in the year, so there's a high chance there will be some more Recommended Albums soon.
This month's playlist is below, firstly in hyperlink-crazy format (be aware that a few lead to Youtube videos with ads):
Antibalas - "Dirty Money" (Radio Edit)
Blur - "Under The Westway"
Twin Shadow - "Golden Light"

Here's the vastly incomplete Spotify version (it runs for around one hour). I also went back to last month's playlist and filled in some of the gaps.
