The Calm and the Crazy of Thanksgiving Weekend

Thanksgiving is a special holiday, beloved in equal parts for the gratuitous spirits it harvests and for the incomparable feast that sits at its centerpiece. Our Thanksgiving Playlist gathers a warm, fuzzy and family-friendly collection of tracks that remind us to stop and consider the many blessings we have to be thankful for in our lives.

Of course, the day after Thanksgiving, long observed as the official kickoff to the holiday shopping season, has in recent years taken the mayhem to a new level with cut-throat opening hours and absurd bargains that turn even the most passive shopper into a deal-hungry cage-fighter. This playlist is made to narrate everything that is ugly and exciting about Black Friday, from the early wake-up call and queues, to the deal-hunting, the materialism and the pure anarchy of capitalism’s favorite holiday.


Latin Explosión

Furthering our mission of helping you discover the best new music in every scene and genre, we’ve got two brand new active playlists covering what’s new and hot in the vibrant world of Latin music.

¡Ahora! is your tastemaking destination for discovering all the popular new hits in the diverse Latin landscape, covering everything from pop, rock and hip-hop to indie, reggaeton, bachata and beyond. And if you’re looking for something a little more focused, head straight to Get Yours to get your full-on fix of the latest and greatest in reggaeton.


Hip-Hop To Pick Yourself Up

No matter how much larger than life they might seem, every rapper had to overcome a ton of obstacles to get where they currently are. That’s why when they have musical moments of introspection and talk about their rise to the top or how much life has changed for them from their humble beginnings, it makes for such a relatable and exhilarating listen.

Help pick yourself up, or push yourself further, with our two new playlists Hip-Hop Songs About The Come-Up and Motivational Raps.



Published on November 29 by Third Man Books, TOTAL CHAOS: The Story of The Stooges / As Told by Iggy Pop is the first time the story of the seminal band has been told entirely in Iggy Pop’s own words. In addition to presenting an exclusive excerpt from the book, titled “Elektra Comes To Detroit,” we asked music historian, collector and author of TOTAL CHAOS Jeff Gold to curate this companion playlist.

Want more? Head to Legends: Iggy Pop, featuring all of Iggy’s best work, and the Third Man Records-curated From Ribbon Farms to Two-Car Barns, honoring the incredible and eclectic list of legends hailing from Detroit.


Winter In The Heartland

A road movie in playlist form, through a desolate, snow-draped American landscape with music mostly created far away from the hustle and bustle of the big city glitz and glam. Set in a hushed down, quiet and reflective mode, this is a meditation on winter in America, as told without megaphone or large headlines.
