Another TGIF Playlist: Music for the Long Weekend!

Here is what I’ll be listening to this long weekend, after I wake up at noon and shove my face with costco sized portions of mini-eggs.  Hope everyone has a great weekend.

GenerationalsU Say It 2

A really upbeat and sweet song– good album too, and you can download the band’s free EP, Medium Rarities here if you want to hear more.

Miike Snow feat. Lykke LiBlack Tin Box

Miike Snow’s new album Happy to You, is a must purchase/listen for me.  It like the perfect medley of music/songs for the summer– I haven’t been bored with it yet since I got it and if I were introducing someone to the album for the first time I’d probably get them to listen to: Vase, Paddling Out, and Archipelago next.

Sleigh Bells You Lost Me

My favourite on this album is You Lost Me, but I wasn’t able to find a hostable version of it– you can download it from this link and take a listen, though.  This album was a little less bad ass then Treats in my opinion, but still a really good follow-up to grab if you liked their first.

HospitalityBetty Wang

I try to be an adult, and not giggle after reading the name of this song out loud, but I’ll forever be an adult-child and I’m okay with that. This is another newer album I’ve been listening to a lot and really like. Another favourite on the album (Katie played it on her show before) is Friends of Friends:

Hot SugarThe Seagull

Warning: this is instrumental — but you can check out the entire album from the player– more music to add to my Summer Jam 2012 mix.

Wise Blood to all the girls who have trusted me


One of the strangest videos, just saying.

I’ve also been listening to a lot of Black Keys and Arctic Monkeys since seeing them at the ACC — not usually my favourite concert venue– but we had GA tickets and had spots so close to the stage I could have backhandedly brushed Dan Auerbach’s beard if I wanted to.   One of the best concerts I’ve been to in a while, so the afterglow hasn’t worn off and both bands have been in heavy rotation.  Click HERE and HERE for my favourites to listen to right now from each band.
