This month's playlist is a bit of a rockier one, despite starting out with some beautifully mellow tunes from London Grammar and Wretch 32. I've discovered some amazing new artists this month and have welcomed the return of old favourites such as Queens of the Stone Age and Arctic Monkeys. 

The leak of the new Arctic Monkeys album earlier this week saw me staying up to the early hours to listen to it, and it is utterly amazing. Their new sound is just perfect and I am ever so excited to see them next month at Earls Court. Both Biffy Clyro and Black Rebel Motorcycle have been on my radar for years however I have never listened to them properly, this has definitely changed over the last few weeks. 

Both London Grammar and Wretch 32 are completely different to the usual thing I would listen to, regardless of this their recent tracks are two of my favourites on this months playlist. For those like me who love their indie then Deap Vally, Swim Deep and Temples are all doing some very interesting things at the moment.

Have you had any favourite songs from this month, or found some great new discoveries I should listen to?
