Hellooooo lovelies! So I've been neglecting my monthly list of favorite songs, and I decided that now (with summer approaching!) that I would compile a playlist of songs that I've been listening to since Coachella. Yes, I measure time relative to Coachella. Get ready.
On The Other Side - The Strokes
This song basically sums me up right now. Don't get me wrong; I'm not "tired of everyone I know," but I'm just a little bored with still being in high school. What can I say.
Faces In The Crowd - Panda Bear
My obsession with Panda Bear started around October last year, and it definitely hasn't slowed down. This song is fantastic, and so fun to play in my car whilst driving. I also just love Noah's vocals.
Lion In A Coma - Animal Collective
Going along with the Panda Bear thing, I just recently started getting into Animal Collective (I'm a little late, I know). I'm not really sure what's so great about this song; maybe it's the fact that I couldn't understand what Avey Tare was singing up until a few days ago? Nevertheless, I love it.
Play It Right - Sylvan Esso
Seeing Sylvan Esso at Coachella made me love them even more than I did before, so I've been listening to their self-titled debut album basically nonstop since then.
Minimal Affection - The Vaccines
If you know me, you know I my everlasting love for The Vaccines. It's safe to say that they are my favorite band of all time. This is a track off their new album, English Graffiti (which comes out next week), and it just fills my heart with happiness. Justin's weird vocals? Check. A Strokes-esque guitar line? Check. Half-assed, lazy lyrics that The Vaccines are notorious for? Check. Literally everything I could ever want in a Vaccines song.
Can't Do Without You - Caribou
I also saw Caribou at Coachella, and this song was definitely my favorite of the set. It was so much fun (and I can't wait to see Caribou again at Outside Lands this August!!!).
Best Friend - The Drums
One of my awesome penpals all the way from Poland sent me a mix CD with this song on it, and I've been listening to it like crazy ever since. I'm so excited to see The Drums at Outside Lands, too!
Vintage Red - Jay Jay Pistolet
Ah, Justin Young. You never fail to amazing me. This one doesn't need an explanation.
Young Love - The Mystery Jets (featuring Laura Marling)
I heard this song on the radio (maybe?) a while back and wrote it down on the notes on my iPhone. I'm pretty sure I never heard it when it came out because I'm not British/I was 10 when it came out and listened primary to Maroon 5 and Taylor Swift. Not that I don't love Taylor Swift. I love Taylor Swift.
I Didn't See It Coming - Belle & Sebastian
I couldn't see Belle & Sebastian at Coachella (same time as Alt-J... let me die), and I recently re-watched God Help The Girl, so I've been in a total Belle & Sebastian phase the past couple of months. I played them on shuffle in my art class, and everyone hated it. WHY?? What are you afraid of??? Scottish people and happiness??
