Freshly Squeezed, Vol. 2: Smoke Season, Hey Violet, Haley Reinhart & more

Welcome to Freshly Squeezed, a weekly new music playlist: spanning country, pop, EDM and urban, mainstream and other.

Because the inaugural playlist was such a smash, we are back with even more juicy lineup of club bangers and sensitive singer-songwriter ballads. From new entries of Smoke Season, XYLØ and Fickle Friends to a sterling standout on Hey Violet‘s debut full-length, the latest installment will make you feel all sorts of ways. As we harp on rather frequently ’round here, the mission of B-Sides & Badlands will always be to uncover those diamonds in the rough, those blustering overlooked tracks which aim to spark a revolution in our heart.

This week’s playlist also includes Sammy Brue, Jason Isbell, Jake Miller, Haley Reinhart, Litronix, Kate Crash and the Killers.

Each playlist will be refreshed every Friday afternoon. We reserve the right to update anytime during the week, so make sure you bookmark this page.
