Best of the Month

Best New Songs of November 2014

I sit here around the same time every month wondering what I should put into these little write ups. Sometimes it comes to me, and sometimes I’m just like blech. Sometimes I even wonder if anyone reads these or if they just skip to the music. Sex. I’m not going to go into a deep thoughtful post, or predict how many touchdowns Johnny Football (sex) will have for my brownies next week, but, yeah, enjoy the sex (music)!

PSA: I’m out of it tonight. Thanks, finals!

Best New Songs of October 2014


LQQzSkO

So it’s November 1st. Let us take a couple things into consideration here:

  1. Last night was Halloween. I hope you stayed safe, had fun, and had a great costume!
  2.  For those unaware, Halloween might be over, but it’s still Saturday. So repeat the above.
  3.  You’re probably hungover, so here’s some music to relax too
  4. In a parallel universe, there was a Halloween party with all of you, and all of us at Sunset, and we danced, and we cried, and we laughed, and had a really, really, really, good time.
  5. Playlist and download link below!

September just flew by, and the Sunset Crew is here with our top tracks of the past month.  The playlist starts off with straight hip-hop vibes, then transitions to more indie / indie-pop, and ends with some funky bangers. Hope yall enjoy the dope tracks.

P.S – Halloween is on a Friday this year >:)

Yesterday, I turned 22. Today, no classes because of labor day. Tonight, the best new songs of August, and just like this month (for most), it was a scorcher of a month. Genre jumping, and feature hopping, the best new songs of August are here! Just a great weekend.

Best of July 2014

Man, oh man was July a hot month for music! I’ve talked with several of our writers and we all agree: this was one hard month to pick songs for! Fortunately for you and me, we did it. 23 songs put together in a convenient playlist, ranging from a bunch of different genres. Happy August everyone!

Best of June 2014


vMQt4MZ

The U.S. might’ve lost against The Waffles yesterday, but that won’t stop us from celebrating our independence day this Friday! To those who have plans to get drunk and run wild, or to those who prefer to have a glass of wine and enjoy fireworks with your loved one (or do both at the same damn time), enjoy your weekend and freedom. Why? Because this is America and it is our duty as writers to serve you with an awesome playlist filled with June’s best music for your holiday weekend. God, I’m so emotional right now.

Best of March 2014


BestofMARCH

Usually what happens is I give you somewhere between 15-20 songs that I liked throughout the month. That’s boring, isn’t it? Why do that when we have amazing writers on here with such great tastes? Why not expose you to all of us from now on? We do this every year in December, but why not all the other months? Well, that’s exactly what we’re going to do. All you need to know is that from now on, we’re asking each writer to give us their top 3 songs from the month, and as a result, we probably have my favorite month ever doing this. The results were nothing short of perfect.

Best of February 2014


BestofFEBRUARY

The “Best of Series” is a playlist generated every month providing you with quality, sounding music across all genres that were released during that month (or previous months). Whether you’re too busy to visit daily, or just need some music, this is our way of helping you stay current.


February is so short. I say it every year. The music, however, is not!

Jordan’s Top 5:

Skizzy Mars – All Say/Numb

Skizzy’s new project comes out next week and I couldn’t be happier. To celebrate, Skizzy dominates this month’s top 5 with All Say & Numb

Bipolar Sunshine – Where Did The Love Go

I’m not exactly sure how he does it, but he keeps making songs that are better than the last. This is a ballad of art about love. Because all we need in life is more love songs.

Miguel – Simple Things

Created for the HBO show, Girls, (who actually watches that show), Miguel creates the smoothest joint I’ve heard in a long time. Currently my favorite  song for *insert weekend activity here*.

Galimatias & Joppe ft. GoldLink – One Step Back

GoldLink goes in over smooth production to drop some bars to vibe out too. This is in the same category of the song above. *insert weekend activity here*

Best of January 2014

The “Best of Series” is a playlist generated every month providing you with quality, sounding music across all genres that were released during that month (or previous months). Whether you’re too busy to visit daily, or just need some music, this is our way of helping you stay current.


We took the month off in December in order to focus on rolling out our 2013 lists. I hope you’re not mad because that would truly break my heart after all the hard work we put into keeping you updated with music. Have no fear though, I’m back with January tunes for your ear.

Jordan’s Top 5:

Drake – Trophies

I think over the past year, Drake has garnered the most groupies (male & female) out of any other artist. He’s stepped up his game, and this would’ve been the perfect introduction to NWTS, in my opinion.

Ella Eyre – All About You

She’s a giant bubble that’s close to exploding on the music scene and hitting everyone with her waves of pop. All About You is infectious, and you’ll find yourself going along with it in no time.

Timothy Bloom – Stand In The Way

This guy reminds me of Aloe Blacc a little bit. I’ve never heard of him before this, but definitely a good introduction to Mr. Timothy Bloom that I think you’ll like.

Years & Years – Real

This is the kind of pop that makes me love pop. A little bit of this, a little bit of that, and you have yourself a well constructed pop song.

Jon E.K. – Crumble 

This is a song about heartbreak, and a good one at that. Add this to your “I’m sad that my crush won’t like me” playlist.

Best of November 2013

What a wild weekend. It was Thanksgiving (and Hanukkah) all on the same damn day, so gobble tov to those that are celebrating, and on top of that, rivalry weekend in college football could not of been better. My Buckeyes topped Michigan with a last second defensive stop, Lydia’s Blue Devils are on there way to a title game, and the almighty Alabama fell to Auburn on one of the craziest finishes I’ve ever seen. It’s almost like this can’t even compete, but music always has a spot, no matter what, even if there’s a fire.

Jordan’s Top 3:

Sway Clarke III – I Don’t Need Much

You have to wonder where Sway Clarke Sr. and Jr. are, but number III ain’t to bad with this newbie, I Don’t Need Much. Simple sometimes is best.

Jon Waltz – Magic City

I have a man crush on Jon Waltz…there I said it.He keeps feeding us more and more samplers, but I want the main course. This is a story about his first night in Atlanta, and it pleases me.

Freddie Dickson – Minimal Love

It’s all fun and games until you hit that drop to the chorus, and it blows you away. It seems like I’m describing an EDM song, but I’m describing a carefully constructed, darkish tune about love.
