BumbleBee Brunch Playlist: 10/1/21


Welcome to October, and the official start of the spooky season! And what better way to welcome in the frightful festivities than with the BumbleBee Brunch, which kickstarted BumbleBee Radio’s month-long Halloween Hauntings series with a playlist of new tunes, classic alternative, and some scary sonic delights, like CHVRCHES cover of “Cry Little Sister” and “Head Like a Haunted House” by Queens of the Stone Age. With four weeks to go until Halloween, we’re just getting started with the tricks and the treats here on the Bee.


It was also Bandcamp Friday, so on the Brunch we shined a light on new releases from locals like Ex-Hyena, Abbie Barrett, The Chelsea Curve, and Gretchen Shae & The Middle Eight, as well as national acts like Jane Weaver, Hope and Social, Corridor, Weval, and French Girls. Plus fantastic new stuff from Angel Du$t, Tori Amos, and French Girls.


The week was full of classic alternative album anniversaries -- New Order’s Brotherhood (1986), Depeche Mode’s Music for The Masses (1987), and Portishead’s Portishead (1997) -- and 25 years ago today, Tool released Aenima, so we rocked out a bit more than usual with “Forty-Six & 2.” Friday’s gonna Friday!


Our oldest track on the playlist was The B-52s' “Planet Claire”, rolling it back 42 years to 1979 and the newest, well, that was a billion-way tie with all the Bandcamp tunes hitting the internet.

Check out the full playlist here, and tune in to the BumbleBee Brunch with me, your host Kristen Eck, every Friday at 10 AM EDT on BumbleBee Radio!
