Cool, New Music: November 2021 Indie Music Playlist
Jack White. "Taking Me Back (Gently)"
Courtney Barnett. "Smile Real Nice" (The Theme From "Harriet The Spy"). Catchiest song in the world.
Paul McCartney. "Uncle Albert / Admiral Halsey". Whimsical 1971 song. McCartney at his weirdest.
Tim Heidecker. "Dark Days". Actor/comedian/singer, this Allentown native can do no wrong.
Big Thief. "Time Escaping". This song sounds very different from their others. It's from their new double album, coming out early next year. Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You (Feb 11/4AD), is going to put Big Thief over the top as a major rock band worth listening to.
Bonnie "Prince" Billy & Bill Callahan. "Kidnapped By Neptune" (feat. Hamerkop)(Scout Niblett cover)

Cassandra Jenkins. "American Spirits"
