Music Discovery: September 2015

Fall is upon us, and our Music Supervisor team is ready to slow down the playlist and transition into a cooler season. One of our Music Supervisors, Blake Kirpes, said “Now that we’ve officially jumped into Fall–my favorite season by a long shot–it’s out with the sweaty summer pop jams and in with rainy melancholic fall tunes. Below are some of our favorite Fall tracks; the kind of songs that soundtrack a rainy weekend spent indoors, or a slow weekend drive through the mountains.”


Artist: Kurt Vile

Track: “Pretty Pimpin”

This is one of my favorite songs of the year. I love everything about it, especially the lyrics. Their new album “B’lieve I’m Going Down” is out 9/25 on Matador Records

Artist: Pearl Charles

I’ve really been liking the new “Pearl Charles” EP. I recently bought this on cassette via one of my favorite labels, Burger Records.

Another recent purchase of mine was the limited edition (green vinyl) copy of the new Ultimate Painting album “Green Lanes”, which is out now on Trouble In Mind Records.

Artist: Destroyer

Great lyrics and great horns on this new single from the latest Destroyer album “Poison Season”, out now on via Merge Records.

About Blake Kirpes

My name is Blake Kirpes and I am a Music Supervisor at PlayNetwork, with over 12 years in the music industry.

The first real album I had was a cassette copy of “Eazy-Duz-It”, when I was just in grade school…so yeah, that happened.

I have worked in a variety of roles in the music industry, from a live radio host and DJ to an audio engineer, working in studio with bands like Death Cab For Cutie and The Shins. I enjoy pinpointing the right music for the right audience and connecting new artists to their future fans.

When I’m not  researching music (with 30+ browser tabs open) I collect cassettes, vinyl and do this.
