RPM Presents: Tunesday 10/1/19



Get your electronic juices pumping for this weeks installment of Tunesday. Our team here at RPM was feeling mighty groovy when curating this playlist. For those indie rock souls out there, don’t fret, we’ve got you covered too: 


Open in Spotify


“Lust” by Denise Le Menice

Lust by Denise le Menice

“This is like sipping a psychedelic smoothie to get you through the mid-afternoon lull. After this and “Stars,” I’m really excited to see what comes next from Denise Le Menice.” -- Andrew


“Line of Sight (feat. WYNNE and Mansionair) by ODESZA

ODESZA - Line Of Sight (feat. WYNNE & Mansionair) - Official Video

“Feeling this electronic dance song this week, by the Seattle duo, ODESZA. The soothing vocal melodies and immersive production resonates with me. I saw them a handful of times in Oz for Laneway, and all I have to say is their live drum line steals the show.” -- Jay


“Water Me Down” by Vagabon

Vagabon - Water Me Down (Official Video)

“This new single from Vagabon is poppier than the musician’s first, guitar-centered album. “Water Me Down” is a chamomile-soaked meditation on transition and finding the courage to ask for what you need.” -- Colleen


“Stretch Your Face” by Tobacco

“A theme song to one of my favorite shows and a great song in it’s own right. ” -- Dave


“One of These Days” by Bedouine

Bedouine - "One of These Days"

“I’ve yet to find a better Sunday-morning soundtrack than Bedouine. Bedouine’s songs cradle you in a blanket of melodic, acoustic guitar and lyrics so heartwarmingly earnest, it’s impossible not to smile along to them.” -- Colleen


“Dragonaut” by Sleep

“As my per usual Tunesday picks, I love any song that makes me want to bob my head. I’ve been hearing this song a lot recently, and finally decided to add it to my personal playlist.” -- Becca


“The Lass from the low Country” by Odetta

Lass of the Low Country

“Possibly the greatest voice in folk music? After transitioning from an operatic style to folksinging, she created a unique sound not since replicated. This one from her 1957 album At the Gate of Horn is a great example of the drama she could add to a standard kind of ballad.” -- Willie


“When Will You Die?” by They Might Be Giants

When Will You Die? - They Might Be Giants (Official Video)

“Dark lyrics. Fun instrumentals. This juxtaposed song is classic They Might be Giants.” -- Dave


“Mr. Saxobeat” by Alexandra Stan


“It’s straight up nostalgia time, people. This song was everywhere in 2011, then lay dormant for a number of years. But now, I think it’s time for a Saxobeat resurgence. What a bop!” -- Andrew


“A Million Years” by Computer Magic

“Danz put together a surreal tune here, with clever lyrics and delivery. I think the music video expresses how she can shoot a simple video, and still make it seem cool and weirdly produced at the same time.” -- Jay


“Slam” by Onyx

Onyx - Slam (Official Video)

“This is one of my favorite hip-hop songs of the ’90s, which recently re-entered my life. That last verse is…spectacular.” -- Andrew


“Pain” The War On Drugs

The War on Drugs - Pain [Official Video]

“Kurt Vile’s voice in the opening line of this song sounds so similar to Brian Adams voice and the tracks he sang for the childrens’ movie, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. They both hold a raspy quality in their voice that burrows deep into your chest. To me it sounds like the ashy remnants of a lonely burnt log.” -- Allie


“California Uber Alles” by Dead Kennedys

California Uber Alles

“Dead Kennedys will always live on. Their songs about the government and society are as relevant now as they were in the 1970s and 1980s.” -- Becca


“Play Dusty For Me” by David Westlake

David Westlake - Play Dusty For Me

“I don’t know anything about him, but this song came on and it felt just right. No surprises and a nice, warm song for now.” -- Willie


“Holocene” by Bon Iver

Bon Iver - Holocene (Official Music Video)

“I not sure if you can call it a quarter-life crisis; perhaps, “emerging adulthood” would be the correct term? Every day feels like the start of a new marathon. Some days you are winning, some days you are falling behind. For the tough days you are falling behind, and need a tune that lets you live in your pain, this song fits that need.” -- Allie
