The June playlist is here! Ft. new tunes from !!! (Chk Chk Chk), Fujiya & Miyagi, Yeasayer, Albert Hammond Jr. and more. 🎶Have a listen below.
Here's the highlights:
!!! (Chk Chk Chk) surprised us this week with two new dance-worthy jams. “Off The Grid” has an interesting first 20 seconds, but stick with it!
The lyrics to the song “More to Life” by Albert Hammond Jr. are realllly resonating with me right now. "So tonight free yourself, let the music make you someone else. There's more to life than 9 to 5, when your world's a party every night." Yes to more dancing and letting go of work worries!
Sleater-Kinney dropped a new song this week produced by Annie Clark of St. Vincent, but you probably could’ve guessed that from the opening vocals.
Fruit Bats have a new album out June 21 titled Gold Past Life. They’re playing the Lodge Room in Highland Park on the 22! See you there?
The June playlist is here! Ft. new tunes from Jungle, White Denim, Arctic Monkeys, Iceage and more. 🎶 Have a listen below.
Here's the highlights:
- Newly founded band Wajatta is a mashup between Reggie Watts (yes, the comedian) and John Tejada. It's groovy-lounge-happiness at its finest.
- I'm sure you're one of the 220 million plus people who have seen Childish Gambino's "This Is America" video. But on the off chance you're not, you should go watch it.
- White Denim is back with new music! They're from Austin, TX. Which I'm visiting for the first time in a couple of weeks!
- I've really been into bumping Amber Mark's new song "All the Work" off her latest EP. Especially, when I have a deadline creeping up on me.
I don't like to think June gloom is a thing. I want rainbows all day every day! June is also Pride Month, so I thought rainbows would be extra appropriate.
Have a listen to the June Playlist below if you want to find out what rainbows sound like.
- New tunes from Courtney Barnett, Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear AND Washed Out!
- The National is playing with Local Natives and Daughter at The Hollywood Bowl on October 11! I'm OBSESSED with their new track.
- Check out this Shins cover of The Smiths', "Panic". I didn't know I needed this in my life...
- "Planetarium" is a new collab between Sufjan Stevens, Nico Muhly, The National's Bryce Dessner and James McAlister that has a space rock sound that's out of this world. Their full length comes out on June 9. In the meantime you should watch this video for their song "Saturn", and get tickets to their show on July 20 at The Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
