Mix: Songs We Love Right Now, Vol. III

Song We Love Right Now” is a mix dedicated to tunes that are stuck on repeat (in our heads and our music players).

Listen to what we can’t stop listening to below…

ALEXIS’ PICKS:

Artist: Stars | Song: Your Ex Lover is Dead
My sister sent me this song the other day stating she was sure I’d probably heard it before, but it was worth sharing anyway. I’m glad she did because I hadn’t heard it and it’s been played at least once a day since then.

Artist: Haim | Song: Forever
I’m so intrigued by the sounds these three sisters are making. Looking forward to a full-length album soon.

Artist: Childish Gambino | Song: Won’t Stop feat. Danielle Haim
Yes, the same Haim from the song above. I’m a fan of all things Donald Glover and the addition of Haim’s voice certainly doesn’t hurt.

Artist: Warpaint | Song: Undertow
I’ve been digging the ladies lately.

Artist: M.I.A. | Song: Baby
Can you make a woman out of me?


DEE’S PICKS:

Artist: T. Rex | Song: Cosmic Dancer
The best jam.

Artist: The Black Ryder | Song: Grass
This song has kind of become my replacement for Black Angels’Black Grease,” which I have played to no end for the past few years.

Artist: Yim Yames | Song: My Sweet Lord
I just love this song so much.

Artist: JEFF the Brotherhood | Song: Sixpack
Easy listening, summer anthem. The video portrays everything I think of/want to do when I hear this track.

Artist: Hunx & His Punx | Song: Lover’s Lane
I’ve woken up with this song stuck in my head. So, that’s that.


ELIZABETH’S PICKS:

Artist: Childish Gambino | Song: Heartbeat
Because I love Renaissance men. Especially ones that sing.

Artist: Amanda Palmer | Song: Ampersand
Amanda Palmer is a badass and listening to her, no matter what the tune, makes me want to get up and get creative.

[LISTEN HEREArtist: Withold Lutoslawski | Song: Symphony #2 (mvt 1 Hesitant)
Lutoslawski is a favorite composer of mine. I’ve been doing some score studies and have been re-visiting this symphony a lot lately.

Artist: Sun Ghost | Song: La Di Da
I love Sun Ghost! A great local band made up of a bunch of great guys.

Artist:  Polyphonic Spree | Song: Days Like These Keep Me Warm
Great rainy day music. Perfect because we’ve had so much rain recently!


LINSEY’S PICKS:

Artist: Dizzy Gillespie | Song: Manteca
I am on a huge Dizzy kick lately. His music spans so much time, and across so many styles. I love me some Hard Bop.

Artist: Sam Cooke | Song: Bring it on Home to Me
I know I need new music in my life, but I can’t help revisiting the comforts of older tunes. I have been listening to this song in particular a lot lately. I am a die hard Sam Cooke and Otis Redding fan.

Artist: LCD Soundsystem | Song: I Can Change
I had a dear friend give me this album, and he described it as “good summer music.” He was right. When it gets warm out I turn it up and enjoy a little LCD.

Artist: Fugazi | Song: Waiting Room
I love this song, and recently revisited it. Fugazi has quite the collection of amazing songs to choose from.

Artist: Best Coast | Song: Fist City
I love Loretta Lynn and I have enjoyed this Best Coast cover.


MANDI’S PICKS:

I’ve been on a badass-chick phase right now…

Artist: Kimbra | Song: Cameo Lover

Artist: Givers | Song: Ripe

Artist: Metric | Song: The Void

Artist: Adele | Song: I Found a Boy

Artist: Yeah Yeah Yeahs | Song: Maps
