Finish Off 2017 With 31 Fresh Tunes by BAUM, Sigrid, Satin Jackets and More!

December 11, 2017

Whew! 2017 is less than a month from being over, so while you’re in the middle of rejoicing (as I’m sure most of you are!), do so with some fresh new music.

As the year comes to a close, the music is mellowing out, so prepare to cozy up in cold weather to 32 chill new tunes. I had this playlist on repeat over the weekend while I cooked and hung up new apartment decor. I couldn’t have picked a better selection of sounds to accompany my tasks.

From BAUM and Sigrid, to Satin Jackets, Aquilo, Chelsea Lankes and more, hopefully the songs I’ve chosen will keep you hopeful of the new music to come in 2018.

Check out the full playlist below!

Savoy, St. Lucia, Skrillex, The Knocks & 27 More Artists: New Music Monday!

December 7, 2015

Savoy_-_1000_Years_EP_skyelyfeObviously, the internet is abuzz today with news of the 2016 Grammy Nominations (woohoo, Tame Impala!) – and snubs (where was “Ayo“‘s nom?!).

But in the midst of anticipating the results of the big Feb. 15 awards show, let’s take a look at some new music. Heck, some of these could make 2017’s nominations list – who knows?

This week, I have 31 new songs, ranging from dubstep by Savoy and Skrillex, to lots and lots of chill stuff to ease you into the thick of December by Paperwhite, Retro Culture, Cinnamon Chasers, Geographer, Brothertiger, Aquilo and so much more! And who can leave out the new stuff by consistent skyelyfe favorites Miike Snow, St. Lucia – and The Knocks (featuring Cam’Ron, of all people! Does it get any better than this?!)

Check out the playlist below. I promise you will not be disappointed!



Audien, DWNTWN, GEMS & 38 More Artists: New Music Monday!

September 14, 2015

Audien_Something_Better_skyelyfeLet me start off by saying happy Jewish New Year to those (myself included) who observe today’s Rosh Hashanah holiday. As I begin to enjoy this spiritual, reflective day and nosh on my apples and honey (gotta do it!), it’s certainly an added bonus to have some fresh, calming music to accompany the experience.

I have 41 new songs to share with you all, ranging from melodic EDM by Audien (the song “Something Better” features Lady Antebellum, which is a unique turn for this type of artist) – to a really fun indie-electro track “Compact Disco” by my pals DWNTWN.

Also in the mix? Some additional skyelyfe favorites and regulars, including GEMS, Kaskade, Kasket Club, AquiloTep No, Sohight & Cheevy, Janet Jackson, Zara Larsson and many, many more.

With so many songs to choose from today, I definitely think your ears will get their sound fix, regardless of what they are craving. After checking out the first Soundcloud track below, be sure to continue scrolling for the rest of the music which is on the Spotify list:



Shaun Frank, Satin Jackets, Penguin Prison & 13 More Artists: New Music Monday, 5.11.15

May 11, 2015

ShaunFrankSome of my favorites (Satin Jackets, Penguin Prison, Pompeya) are making the start to the week a little brighter with contributions to my latest New Music Monday playlist.

While they seem to be regulars on my weekly lists, I am newly digging Toronto-based producer Shaun Frank‘s groovy synth melodies in his latest track “Time,” which – like the title – takes you back to a different era!

To take things down a notch, give a listen Aquilo‘s soulful “Put Me Down,” Avivaa‘s “PRiSM,” or Henry Green‘s “Barcelona.”

And then you’ve got chart-topper Ciara back with the sexy debut single from her latest album Jackie, called “Dance Like We’re Making Love.”

Check out the playlist below, which also includes fresh tracks by Gypsy & the Cat, Parade of Lights, Make the Girl Dance, Made in Heights and more!
