New Music Wrap-Up: October

As the month of October comes to a close, I have decided to reflect here on the best music I have heard for the first time in the past month. While not all of the music was released this month, it was new to me, and I hope you find some new gems in here too! It was a great month for rap, with two of the most exciting debuts in a long time seeing release: Macklemore and Kendrick Lamar. This month's single-maker was definitely Ellie Goulding, who released her second album, Halcyon, displaying a darker, more emotionally heavy side to her writing. Enjoy!
