August '19 Playlist by Julia Walck

August '19 Playlist | Julia Walck

The August playlist is here! Ft. new tunes from Bonobo, Poolside, Andrew Bird, Ty Segall and more. 🎶Have a listen below.

Here's the highlights:

  • Ty Segall’s new album, First Taste, is out tomorrow.

  • Bonobo dropped a new single! If you didn’t catch it earlier this year, Bonobo released a DJ mix album, which can hopefully tie you over until their next full length comes out.

  • Andrew Bird released a music video for “Olympians” off of his recent album My Finest Work Yet. It’s chock full of green screen goodness and you should probably go watch it. Also! Andrew Bird is doing a free show at KCRW HQ on August 17! If you’re in LA, you should go!

August 2018 Playlist | Julia Walck

The August playlist is here! Ft. new tunes from DeVotchKa, Jungle, Wild Nothing, Delicate Steve and more. 🎶 Have a listen below.

Here's the highlights:

  • Remember that ethereal cinematic track "The Winner Is" from Little Miss Sunshine? Well DeVotchKa is back with more dreamy tunes! Perfect for listening while staring out the window of a slowly moving car pretending you're in an indie film. 
  • This wave of new Jungle releases is really making me happy. Their new album For Ever comes out September 14!
  • Big Red Machine is a new collaborative project between Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver) and Aaron Dessner (of The National). A bit experimental and a bit of the familiar from both of them. 
  • Wild Nothing is back with new music! Catch them at The Regent in October.

July 2018 Playlist | Julia Walck

The July playlist is here! Ft. new tunes from Interpol, Death Cab for Cutie, El Ten Eleven, Lykke Li and more. 🎶 Have a listen below.

Here's the highlights:

  • St. Vincent re-worked her track "Slow Disco" and dubbed it "Fast Slow Disco". Pretty self explanatory. Pretty great.
  • Interpol has new tunes! A full length is coming out in August. You can catch them at The Hollywood Bowl in October. 
  • M. Ward released an entire album unannounced at the start of June titled What a Wonderful Industry.
  • The Gui Boratto remix of Paul Simon's "That Was Your Mother" has been my go-to running song lately.

June '18 Playlist by Julia Walck

June 2018 Playlist | Julia Walck

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.

May '18 Playlist by Julia Walck

May 2018 Playlist | Julia Walck

The May playlist is here! Ft. new tunes from Tom Misch, Leon Bridges, Lord Huron, Melody's Echo Chamber and more. 🎶Have a listen below. 

Here's the highlights:

  • New music from Leon Bridges is the opposite of his latest single "Bad Bad News", it's Good Good News! Even better news: I'll be seeing him at The Greek in September!
  • It's been a while since we've heard from Friendly Fires. They were one of my highschool jams, and they've still got it with their happy, poppy beats as heard on "Love Like Waves".
  • Have you listened to King Tuff's new album yet? "Raindrop Blue" is my favorite track, but it was hard to choose with so many good ones! 
  • I just got back from The National's Homecoming Festival where I saw Lord Huron for the first time! It was SUCH a great show. And hearing "Wait by the River" right next to a river? Amazing. "Moonbeam" is another one of my favorites from their new album Vide Noir
