Not for the Masses…Best of August 2016 Playlist
I have been creating these monthly playlists on my Not for the Masses…profile on Soundcloud for some time now and sharing them in various Facebook music-related group pages. This marks the first time my monthly favorites will appear on The Fire Note!
I try to share the newest stuff, but occasionally something catches my ear that came out a few months ago, but I just have to share it. So just because this is the August list, doesn’t mean all the featured tracks have been released or shared on Soundcloud this month; they are just songs I heard this month.
Got it? Good. Make sure to read the quick descriptions below the playlist – Let’s get started! – by Daniel Taylor
