What I'm Listening To 12/11/2017

A playlist of songs I can't stop listening to, posted Mondays. This week: The Monkees, The Searchers, The Dear Hunter, and a few indirect articles, too.

I got on a real oldies kick last week and ended up finding some really funky sounds. For example: the soundtrack to an award-winning TV movie called "Cowboy in Sweden" (1970). The movie was panned; the soundtrack, beloved. Check it all out in the playlist below.

An infrequently-posted playlist of songs I can't stop listening to, occasionally posted Mondays. This week: Little Dragon, Grouper, and Oneohtrix Point Never. Don't let that bizarre name turn you away - Oneohtrix makes some amazing if esoteric sounds. Case in point: the ending of "Chrome Country" is the prog rock Interstellar cover I never knew I wanted.

A weekly collection of songs I can't stop listening to, posted Mondays. This week: Perfume Genius, Elliott Moss, and The Flaming Lips. I'm hitting a groove right now with the delicate, atmospheric sound represented by this week's artists - it also happens to make for some great study music. Midterms ahoy.

A weekly collection of songs I can't stop listening to, posted Mondays. This week: Andrew Bird, Gallant, and the husband-and-wife indie pop duo Tennis. Keeping with the holiday theme, there's also a haunting cover of "Cant Help Falling In Love." Listen with irony, amorousness, or both - whatever you do, enjoy the music.

A weekly collection of songs I can't stop listening to, posted Mondays. This week: Oshi, Baauer, and the debut solo project from Odd Future's own Syd. If you aren't on Syd yet, fix that immediately - the lead singer of "The Internet" dropped one hell of an album, and it's already one of the best releases of the year. I highly recommend the song "All About Me."

What I'm Listening To 1/23/2017

A weekly collection of songs I can't stop listening to, posted Mondays. This week: Migos, Raury, and Dirty Projectors. I've been on a real Dirty Projectors kick recently, and quite frankly, they've got the stuff. Maybe it's their unique sound; maybe it's just all the fog that's hanging around Ann Arbor. For whatever reason, their airy, electronic-meets-hymnal sound has just clicked with me. I highly recommend their latest single, "Up in Hudson," to listeners both familiar and not.

What I'm Listening To 1/16/2017

A weekly collection of the songs I can't stop listening to, posted Mondays. This week: Angel Olsen, Austin Lam, and the latest from alt band Dirty Projectors. With a relaxed class schedule and time to chat with audiophile friends, the past few weeks have meant some very rewarding music discovery. This week's playlist features a lot of lesser-known artists doing big things.

That, and there's also a new Chainsmokers song out. I'm only human.
