the november playlist


It's been a pretty bonkers month. Like I said last time, I'm back on placement at the minute, but I can hardly believe I'm halfway through this block. I only have twelve weeks of placement left ever. Then it's into the real world, and that's a whole other issue. I'm currently in the process of applying for jobs (I should, in fact, be writing a personal statement right now) and trying to work out where's best and whether I can afford to actually live somewhere if I work there and if the hospital is the kind of place I want to work at. Don't grow up kids, it's not as fun as you think. Butttttt, before all this placement stuff happened, I did my first ever things with student radio. I'd intended to join last year but just never got round to it, so I decided that I'd go for it as if I didn't do it this year then I never would. They are the loveliest bunch of people, amazingly accommodating about the fact I can't commit full time because of placement (booooo), and ridiculously trusting - within two weeks of me joining I had been allowed on the new music show and was interviewing actual real life RHODES. He was honestly one of the nicest guys I've ever met, and it still seems pretty crazy that I was given the chance to sit opposite him and effectively have a chat. Honestly insane. I was completely shitting myself, but it was the biggest buzz. I have pretty much fallen head over heels in love with the whole radio situation, so I am still trying to get involved as much as I can with it all, and I think it's going to play a big part in helping me stay sane in this final year. Now it's time for the important bit: the music.

Several of these tracks are here courtesy of all that radio rubbish I've been talking about. JP Cooper was the support for RHODES, and although I have friends who love his stuff I'd never actually heard it before. Needless to say he was pretty wonderful. Majical Cloudz and Clean Cut Kid were both played when I was on the new music show and they are both marvellous songs, and George Cosby comes by recommendation of RHODES himself and I completely understand why - this song is insanely catchy and that voice is something else. New Dan Croll is very different but I do quite like it, and I am so glad that I can finally share music from Cape Cub on here. He's previously only been on Soundcloud, so yay for the move to Spotify! Only Girl and Jonathan Jeremiah both feature courtesy of Dermot O'Leary's show on Radio 2 - things don't change, and biggest news of the month (or maybe year): Adele is back! I wasn't even watching X Factor when the teaser was shown but I saw it on Twitter and had a major freak out. This is an absolutely beautiful return and I cannot wait to hear how her collaboration with Tobias Jesso Jr. sounds. Guaranteed it'll be too good for words. And finally, the John Lewis Christmas advert was released yesterday and therefore Christmas is officially on. I'll spare you the Christmas playlist until next month (you bet it's happening), but I couldn't help but include AURORA's beautiful cover from said advert - a lovely way to end the playlist and a little reminder that you're not going to be able to escape that festive feeling for much longer.
