Turntable Kitchen :: the November 2011 Mix

Mmmmm… fresh young blood! Yup, you might notice that less than a handful of the artists featured here have released more than a debut full length (and the majority haven’t even released that yet). And what is more, nearly all of the songs featured here have been released within the last 30-60 days. So if you are looking for the new music discoveries, you are going to like this mix. Besides that, I definitely think this is one of the strongest mixes I ever made. These are all bands who are making their names and working hard to earn their careers as musicians. You could say they’ve each got something to prove, and I think it is a better mix for that reason alone. Oh, and you’ll also notice that I’ve added the option to listen to the mix via Spotify for your convenience. I hope you enjoy.

P.S. As of this morning, we are accepting new subscriptions and orders for the December Pairings Box. They make a great holiday gift and they won’t last long, so sign up fast!

    Great Blog – Great Music – Great Job. Have you ever featured Zeus on any of your mixes? I remember a while back you had a contest for the best kept secret. They and a guy name XI would be a few among the many!

  • Jammin

    I’ve been listening to your monthly mixes since April of this year, and this mix is by the far the best I’ve heard yet. You have captured new music at its essence. There’s nothing better then being turned on to a new artist. Thank you for the listening pleasure!

  • Thanks Jammin! The only thing I might enjoy more than discovering new music is helping other people find new music.

  • Thanks for turning me on to White Denim. I have since checked out some of their other music and have been really digging on their if-Zappa-was-a-southern-rocker-singing-indie-rock vibe they have. Awesome!!!
    The Canyons are also a great find.

    NO has had me going all month (I know they were on a prior mix, but I thought I’d throw down here!)
    Can’t wait for December’s mix… keep it up and happy holidays
