October 2007

From Cass McCombs to Black Lips, here are this month's songs you need to download now.

October’s mix of 15 Spin-approved tunes runs the gamut; from the petulant lyrics of songsmith Cass McCombs’ “Crick My Neck” and the garage rock twang of Black Lips’ “O Katrina,” to the orchestral narrations of Jens Lekman’s “Friday Night at the Drive-In Bingo,” to the erratic rhythms of Celebration’s “Pony.” Looking for something in between? New wave calls to the dance floor, goth-punk, and glam revival fill the holes.
