Rdio Recommends: A New Monthly Music Digest


Welcome to the first installment of Rdio Recommends, a new monthly music digest brought to you by Rdio on Rdio. Unearth hidden gems, auditory stand-outs, and the best of each month’s new musical treasures.

The first Monday of every month, we’ll review and create a playlist that reflects what we like and think you might like, composed entirely of new music from the previous month — the perfect compliment to our New Music Tuesday playlists. Rdio Recommends is a guaranteed free pass for you to discover all the cool new songs, albums and musicians before your best friends — unless of course, they are listening too.

This month features 27 of our favorite songs from October. Be surprised and delighted by what’s in store, so you can interject a good sultry soul song, catchy space-age techno experiment or just a dash of something catchy into your Heavy Rotation.

Give the first Rdio Recommends: October a listen and let us know: did you find some new favorite songs?

Now on Rdio: Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV

Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne’s first post-prison release is one of 2011's most-anticipated albums. His 2008 bestseller, Tha Carter III, walked away from the Grammy’s with Album of Year and left critics and fans wondering how he would follow it. Weezy just dropped his latest work, and now you can listen to this charismatic rapper spit out madcap metaphors among a star-studded cast that includes Drake, Andre 3000, and Busta Rhymes.

Listen to: This is Solo by Solo

“This Dutch duo with the difficult-to-Google name are somewhat reminiscent of Kings of Convenience, but with an edge and minus the harmonies. Still, it’s spacious, lovely minimalist music, with haunting melodies and deep lyrics.”
