STG Selects: New Playlist 2nd Friday Of Every Month

STG Selects is a monthly playlist series curated by STG’s own programming team. A group of self-professed music nerds we revel in the uncovering of a new favorite song, an impeccable chorus, a rhythm that precisely accompanies a given mood, or a lyric so expertly crafted you promptly play it back twice. We treasure discovering an artist unfamiliar to us, whether their work was released before our time or just this week, whether they are living in the same city we call home or on the other side of the world. These monthly playlists are full of things we’ve been enjoying. We hope they entertain, delight, and perhaps even introduce you to something new.
