August has been a fascinating month for music. More so than ever, we have heard soundscapes diversify into such different categories, keeping our minds busy with guessing games of what’s to come. But while we suss all of that out, it’s time to enjoy this soundtrack with a collection of our favorite new tracks of August 2019. Playlist artists include Blandlord, Young Guv, Mike Posner, Wiz Khalifa, James Vickery, the bird and the bee, Fox and Bones, and more. Check back all month for more additions to the feature!
