New Music This Week: Week of November 15

This week we're adding a little less music than before, but as the year starts to wind down this is expected. As the final charting week for CMJ draws near, we expect this trend to continue for a bit, and then pick up again in January.

The Spotify weekly playlist we put together probably won't be updated as bountifully after the week of November 29 due to it being our last charting week, and we'll look forward to charting starting again January 3. In the mean time, this week's adds are below.

Luke Temple – A Hand Through the Cellar Door
Kevin Krauter – Changes

RIYL Kurt Vile, Hoops, Jose Gonzalez, Jens Lekman, Kings of Convenience, Fleet Foxes


Forth Wanderers - Slop
RIYL: Diet Cig, Petal, Slothrust.

RIYL: Black Keys, Jack White, Iggy Pop, Foxygen, White Stripes, The Kinks, White Fence, Lou Reed
Wolf People – Ruins
Shantih Shantih - Winter In September
