10 Songs That Made It Onto My September Playlist
Start writing a post

The Neighbourhood, Bad Suns and The Driver Era are three Los Angeles bands that released songs this month. Not only was it a month for Los Angeles bands, but many Australian bands released new music — San Cisco's fourth studio album, Surf Trash single, Skegss single, and High Tropics single. I made new discoveries this month and was pleased by the amount of new music.

Read the listicle below to learn what came out this month in alternative rock music:

1. The Neighbourhood - "Lost in Translation"

The Neighbourhood released their fourth album this September after releasing a handful of singles this summer. "Lost in Translation" is a personal favorite of mine after their July release of "Cherry Flavoured." "Chip Chrome & The Mono-Tones" is a different sound for the band, but it will definitely bring in a new audience and remind long time fans why they love the band!

2. Skegss - "Fantasising"

Skegss released a new single this month that has fans begging for an album. "Fantasising" has the typical Skegss sound exemplifying everything fans love about surf rock. The single follows their previous summer single "Under The Thunder."

3. COIN - "You Are The Traffic"

COIN released their third album "Dreamland" at the beginning of 2020. The band, like many others, did not get to promote their album or tour due to the coronavirus outbreak. The alternative pop group from Nashville didn't let this stop them as they released 'You Are The Traffic" only a couple months after their album release, and fans are loving it!

4. SURF TRASH - "Wrong or Right"

Surf Trash released "Wrong or Right," a short but fun song, this September. For those of you who are not familiar with the band, they are a three-piece alternative surf rock band from Australia. The band consists of the Scott brothers and their closest friend.

5. THE DRIVER ERA - "Fade"

As I have mentioned in my July and August roundups, The Driver Era has released new singles every month this summer in preparation for their upcoming and anticipated sophomore album. "Fade' is another great single from the duo that has us all wondering what is next and when can we hear it?

6. SUNFLOWER - "Better Days"

I am always on the search for new music, and this time I was able to find a new artist through Instagram! The band, SUNFLOWER, who has two released songs on Spotify reached out to me, and I was able to discover another up and coming artist with an awesome sound. "Better Days" is a fun song that is perfect for a road trip or beach day!

7. New Order - "Be a Rebel"

New Order is back with another single. "Be a Rebel" is a fun dance song for the end of summer and, it brings the perfect sound for the start of fall!

8. High Tropics - "Caroline"

High Tropics released a new single, "Caroline," for fans to enjoy this September. "Caroline" is upbeat with a catchy guitar riff and chorus.

9. TV Girl - "Lovers Rock"

Although "Lovers Rock" is not a new song, it is a trending one. The app TikTok, which you may know about for many different reasons such as entertainment or politics, has had this song on trending for quite some time now. After hearing it a few times, I found myself saving each video it was featured in to look up the song!

10. Bad Suns - "Baby Blue Shades"

Los Angeles natives and favorites, Bad Suns, released a new single this September named "Baby Blue Shades." The song has a unique sound, which is different from many of their previous records but has fans excited to hear what is to come. The band also recorded a music video that displays a pretty pink pastel, '80s vibe, and a glimpse of our current reality.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
