Champagne Superchillin’ - “Fragment” - I love french music more than I love myself. This one particularly makes me feel like I’m about to commit a heist.
Alvvays - “Saved By A Waif” - I saw Alvvays at a local festival last week and they’re just as great live. This album was one of my favourites of last year. Absolutely slaps.
Save Face - “Reds” - The only reason I listened to this album was because of MELTT, (thanks Mira :) ) so it felt appropriate to put on here. I listened to this while walking to work today and got way too pumped.
BROCKHAMPTON - “1999 WILDFIRE” - My dad likes this song (says it sounds like Outkast) so this one’s for him. This song makes me want to exclusively listen to songs where people rap about wizards.
Rex Orange County - “Never Enough” - I like to listen to upbeat songs that make me happy on rare occasions. This is my July one.Hinds - “New For You” - Last month I listened to this song so much it skewed my top Spotify artists for the year. My dad says it sounds like a bunch of 6 year olds screaming so if that's what yore into hit this song up.
Dayglow - “False Direction" - I use every opportunity I have to shout this band out. They’re a pretty tiny band, but everything they’ve put out so far (only three songs) has been great. Please watch the video for “Can I Call You Tonight”.
Satellite Mode - “Terrified” - This particular song was co-written by a favourite folk/rock musician of mine - the frontman of Del Water Gap. It reminds me of the kind of music i listened to c. 2014, and I legally have to like it for nostalgia's sake.
Mitski - “Nobody" - This is really a bop if you (like me) are depressed and lonely this summer. I love a good sad song you could dance to.
Con Davison - “Subtle Kick” - Con is the drummer of MN band Bad Bad Hats and his new solo stuff has been great. This and "Somebody Else" are on HEAVY rotation for me - really worth a listen.
Whatever, Dad - “Death of the Phone Call” - I haven’t taken French since 9th grade but I know enough to know that this song is about a swordfish that lost its phone?? If that doesn't intrigue you I don't think we can be friends.
