Run Oregon Tunes – Matt’s top tracks of January 2017

It may be mid-February, but I have finally gone through January’s music releases to pull together 9 of my favorite tracks from the past month. While I have turned into a ordinary podcast listener during my runs, I was surprised that (for the first time in a while) I connected to a variety of albums. There is a pretty diverse split of tunes that includes hip-hop (3 songs – some explicit), indie rock (3 songs), indie pop (2 songs), and one instrumental guitar track.

Check out what I had on repeat in January on Amazon Music and Spotify.

  • “Who Else” by Social Club Misfits
  • “North East South West” by Japandroids
  • “Look at What the Light Did Now” by Flo Morrisey and Matthew White
  • “Talk to Me” by Run The Jewels
  • “On Hold” by The xx
  • “Help” by Delicate Steve
  • “Modern Act” by Cloud Nothings
  • “Pieces/Ruins” by P.O.S.
  • “I Give You Power” by Arcade Fire featuring Mavis Staples
