4 tunes to add to your October playlist

I must admit I don't blog about music as much as I should. I spent most of this year in a state of obscene business, and so didn't keep up much with music at all - that's all changed thanks to a new job and I've been spending many an evening listening to Spotify playlists and our DAB radio. Here are the tunes I'm loving right now:

Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart, Chris Cornell - This man can do no wrong in my eyes. OK maybe that Bond theme song was a bit out of character and the haircut was a bad marketing decision, but I forgive you. Soundgarden are one of my favourite bands of all-time and Chris's voice is so luxurious I could listen to him all day, so his new solo material is getting some serious play in my household. It's much more chilled than a lot of stuff I listen to. Have a listen to the whole of 'Higher Truth' on Spotify and I'm sure I'll convert you.

Better Place, Saint Asonia - When I first heard 'Better Place' on a Spotify curated playlist I was hooked. So catchy, so punchy, slightly angry, so new but strangely familiar. That's when I looked the band up and realised it's a supergroup! I'm a big supergroup fan - they mostly produce some really good music, and these guys are no exception as members hail from bands like Staind and Three Days Grace. Adam Gontier's voice is so gritty but melodic and I'm slightly in love with these guys. Can you tell?

The Other Side, Red Sun Rising - I can't believe I've never heard of these guys until recently, because Red Sun Rising are like the Soundgarden of their generation (sorry Soundgarden, like I said you'll always be my number 1 and I'm basing this statement on one debut album, but I'm placing bets!). They also have beautiful beards and hair but that's besides the point because it's about the music, don't you know. Anyway, one tune that's been getting a lot of airplay is 'The Other Side'. Check it out!

Don't Wake Me, Aranda - This band have been around for a little while now, but recently released a stonker of a single from their new album that is making the rounds and really putting them on the map. Aranda have also got a celebrity fan in the form of Kelly Clarkson, who has covered a couple of their songs. They are definitely rocky in roots, but also have some lovely ballad tunes in their back catalogue. 'Don't Wake Me' is the song that got me really excited - it's moody and catchy and perfect for this time of year.

What music are you loving this month?
