Happy Thanksgiving everyone! For this months playlist we payed tribute to the day of feasting with a playlist that brings in songs from bands that somehow relate to something Thanksgiving-y. From The Cranberries, to The History of Apple Pie, These New Puritans and of course the quintessential Thanksgiving song “Alice’s Restaurant” (in all it’s 2o minute glory). This list ranges pretty much every genre- indie, funk, punk and folk we’ve got it all and best of all, pretty much all of it makes for perfect cooking and eating music. We were so excited to have Alex Beckmann of Snowmine help us out with this month’s list!

Now, to take away from the punny fun of the playlist and get sappy, we also wanted to take this time to thank you all. We here at The Wild Honey Pie love working at the site and sharing music with you, and you all make it so incredibly wonderful. To everyone who reads, comments, comes out to the shows, watches the videos — basically everyone, thank you so much for your support. Happy Thanksgiving everyone, hope you are all happy and full!
