Porches - "Goodbye"
Porches' latest album The House
is gorgeous, and this song in particular is extra powerful. It's packed with a ton of emotion and the production is awesome.
Philip Glass - "Etude 6"
Yeah yeah, okay. I'm a pretentious asshole. I know. But I genuinely have been listening to a ton of Mr. Glass lately, and the beautiful Etude 6 is forever one of my favorites.
Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats - "You Worry Me"
Really fell in love with this song after I watched the band perform it recently on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Pixx - "I Bow Down"
I don't know how or when I decided to let myself forget about Pixx, especially after hearing what I've been missing. Stylistically, "I Bow Down" is a mix of Dido and Rubblebucket. It's a pretty empowering track.
Ravyn Lenae - "Last Breath"
After hearing "Sticky" I knew I needed to delve a little deeper into Ravyn Lenae's music. I'm so happy I did because "Last Breath" from her Midnight Moonlight
EP is mesmerizing. Seriously, I can get lost in this track.
Now, Now - "Yours"
We had Now, Now in for a session a couple weeks back that you can enjoy here
. Every since the aesthetic indie-pop duo gifted us with their presence and sound, I've been low-key in love with them. Not only are they probably one of my favorite sessions to date, they have also become one of my favorites bands. I am definitely keeping an eye on their upcoming album, Saved
, set to be released May 18, 2018.
Washed Out - "Feel It All Around"
2010 Chris was the biggest wannabe hipster in the world. I wore basketball jerseys (ironically), drank only MD 20/20 (ironically), and listened to a lot of Washed Out with plans to move to the Pacific Northwest.
Placebo - "Allergic (To Thoughts of Mother Earth)"
Without You I'm Nothing
was one of the first albums I bought, back in 2002 or so when I was only 10 or 11. After listening to it my dad said he didn't think it was appropriate for me to listen to.
Old Crow Medicine Show - "Wagon Wheel"
It's such a terrible song, with far too many covers, but it's ubiquitous at just about every place you go in the Carolinas and I'm feeling pretty nostalgic.
