April Playlist


Here are 10 songs that have been making my month a little brighter… I hope they’ll do the same for you.

Father John Misty – Bored in the USA


I first heard this song on a gray, rainy day. As it began I thought perhaps it was an old Elton John song that I had not heard before. But the nuances charmed… Continue reading

First Aid Kit


With ’60s allure and old-school country twang, these songs are beautify melodic and lyrically poignant.

Dan Croll


Jovial, upbeat melodies reminiscent of a tropical vacation and sweet, honest-to-goodness lyrics make for a refreshing combination.

Dead Man’s Bones


It feels like I’m running through Sleepy Hollow, in black and white, listening to a scratchy old record of the Monster Mash.

The Weeks


If this is the future of Southern Rock, then I am on board.

RAC – Let Go


RAC always mixes songs with amazing beats at catchy hooks.

Rhye – Open


Rhye is one of those sexy, moody bands with jazzy vocals and electronic chill melodies.

Party Supplies – A Perfect Life

Mikhail Paskalev


Kind of like if Elvis and The Beatles had a baby. If you’re not dancing right now, you should probably check your pulse and make sure you’re still breathing.

Vampire Weekend – Step


The song, the melody, the lyrics, the beats–all are enough to make me more optimistic and centered in the moment.

Born Ruffians


Angsty, new age punk with introspective lyrics and pop rhythms.

Derrek Wayne – That’s the California Dream


A classic, noir take on the trials and tribulations of making it in Hollywood.

Grizzly Bear


Magical, fantastical, orchestral rock. Poignant lyrics subdued by powerful music.

Toro Y Moi


Futuristic Beats, Chillwave, Soul? It’s hard to say which one. I don’t know for sure what I’m hearing, but I like it. Toro Y Moi gives us Underneath the Pine-– and from the… Continue reading

Guillemots!!


Everything you ever wanted from a band! That’s how I describe the Guillemots, For almost 10 years now I have been dreaming splendidly from the vast array of musical stylings this band has… Continue reading

Heyrocco


The strangest cross between Kings of Leon and Jeff Buckley (though that’s not all you’ll hear), Heyrocco have quickly become one of my go-to favorites. I hate to bring age into the equation, but… Continue reading
