So Good playlist for November 6

*Bonus via Prefixmag: A not particularly political track from Das Racist’s Kool AD that’s very worth checking out.

Kudos to Kat Dornian, the music director at CJSW. I took a bit of a different approach this week and mostly stuck to albums on the official playlist she compiles for the station (which includes 100s of CDs in pretty much every genre), and almost everything I checked out was amazing. I ran a bit out of steam near the end, but other than that, I was really quite happy with this one. How To Dress Well still blows my mind, and I think Rhye was a perfect complement to it. Aside from that one, my favourite discovery was probably NiLLA off of Hamilton’s university radio compilation, but there’s a lot of gems here in general.
