So if you're like us, you probably freaked out super early this morning when Taylor Swift stormed back with snake-bitten pop vengeance, dropping her batshit bonkers (and Right Said Fred worshipping) new single "Look What You Made Me Do." We still can't wrap our heads around it, and we look forward to spending the entire weekend reading think pieces about every lyric (jk). We've already covered it on the merry-go-round we call New Sounds, and you were likely correct in predicting it was gonna lead off our latest V:Music playlist.
But wait, there's more! This week's mix, the last before the college students all return to Boston, is a fantastical collection of Boston upstarts and industry titans. In the local corner, we have fresh tracks from Camino 84 (read our take on this #SOTY contender here), PVRIS, and today's certified jamsters CONTACT. In the other, new stream-seekers from Beck, The Killers, Queens of the Stone Age, Thirty Seconds To Mars, The War On Drugs, and more. That sweet creamy middle ground (which we guess isn't a real thing), includes cuts by Wingtip x morgxn, Bridgit Mendler x RKCB, Astrid S, Goldwash, Mags Duval, and more.
Look what you made V do. This is V:Music. Made for you.
