An amazing amount of great new music came out this year, especially in the last couple months. We’ve been fortunate enough to play with a handful of these bands, like St. Lucia, Royal Canoe and Haim, and we’re so excited that their records are finally out. Here are some of our favorites that we’ve been listening to nonstop. We also ended the playlist with a few spooky, magical tunes in time for Halloween, including Deidre’s new single, “Skeleton” and “Magic Dance” from Labyrinth!

Editor’s note: We are thrilled to welcome Paul Hammer of Savoir Adore as our guest author of this month’s Beekeeping mixtape and want to also thank Squarespace for supporting the things we love most and making it easy for us to make sexy websites for our different events.
