“My Body” by Young the Giant

Young the Giant: My Body [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

“Remember this one? An early hit from the 2010s, “My Body” is a nostalgic throwback you can enjoy as the decade’s end draws ever nearer.” – Andrew


“Hasta Que Salga el Sol” by Ozuna

Ozuna - Hasta Que Salga El Sol | Cap.2 ( Video Oficial)

“Sometimes you have to change things up and put on some Spanish Reggaeton.” – Becca


“Lucas with the Lid Off” by Lucas

Lucas with the Lid Off

“Last weekend a friend and I spent an evening watching old Michel Gondry music videos, and this gem from 1994 is one I can’t believe I didn’t know before. It’s exactly the kind of song I should have been into a long time ago, but I guess better late than never.” – Andrew


“Down the Line” by Beach Fossils

Beach Fossils - Down the Line (Official Video)

“Discovering the band,Beach Fossils, might truly be a top highlight of my 2019. THIS BAND IS SO GOOD! Those bass lines! Those delayed vocals! After stumbling across this tune, I immediately sent it to one of my great buddies and RPM’s videographer, Dean, who replied with “This is definitely and Allie-esque song”. I love knowing there is a sonic associated with my music style.” – Allie


“Slow Song” by John Vincent III

John Vincent III - Slow Song (Live Session)

“If Beach Fossils weren’t my 2019 miracle discovery, then this dude would be! I unfold at every voice break and am ignited by his lyrics. For example, “I threw my fears in the ocean / hoping that they’d be washed away / washed away / And I found another piece of my own mind” – ugh! John Vincent III has a genuinely special voice. I’m looking forward to watching his musical career grow!” – Allie


“Mona Lisas And Mad Hatters” by Elton John

Mona Lisas & Mad Hatters - Elton John (Honky Chateau 9 of 10)

“Elton John at perhaps his most raw, while still in a studio recording. And it gives me memories of my home in New York City.” – Dave


“Nakamarra” by Hiatus Kaiyote

Hiatus Kaiyote - Nakamarra

“Every few months I take a nosedive into Hiatus Kaiyote’s discography. I’m still crossing my fingers for an announcement of a new album — it’s been four years since the release of Choose Your Weapon, an album that inspired a whole generation of neo-soul and jazz fusion players. Even so, with only two albums out, it’s easy to spend an entire week wrapped in the Australian quartet’s dizzying dreamscapes.” – Colleen


“Sirabhorn” by Pat Metheny

Sirabhorn - Pat Metheny Group, Hamburg 1980

“Individually, Pat Metheny and Jaco Pastorius are expressive and masterful string players. Together, they make magic. The album Bright Size Life is a knockout on so many accounts, but one of my favorite parts of listening to it is hearing the playful musical conversations between two friends who just get each other.” – Colleen


“You Don’t Know About Me” by Ella Vos


“Ella makes very clean hitting sounds on her record, and this one sports a punchy bass drop with very smooth vocals. The lyrics are catchy too, giving off some pop vibes that mix well.” – Jay


“Guaze” by Gleemer

Gleemer - Gauze (Official Video)

“Playing like an old school Snow Patrol track, Gleemer brings a distorted yet psychedelic sound meshed with melancholy vocals in this somber track “Gauze.” – Jay


“Ten Thousand Hours” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Ten Thousand Hours - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

“From his first album, this song talks about the long journey to making it in music. “A life lived for art is never a life wasted” is one of my all time favorite song lyrics.” – Becca


“Golden Chords” by Deakin

Deakin - Golden Chords (Official Video)

“This opener from Animal Collective member Deakin’s solo album Sleep Cycle is a classic, and I just found out the album has been remastered! I used to listen to it on a depressingly long commute I had the summer it came out, and I’ve always loved this song in particular. Though he’s known as a guitarist within Animal Collective, his vocal melodies are instant classics--like they’ve been considered for a lifetime before they appear.” – Willie


“Captain Fantasy” by Ween

Captain Fantasy (Live)

“Ween has played this song almost every time I’ve seen them. It’s a hit that keeps on hitting.” – Dave


“You And I Keep Falling” by Kath Bloom

You And I Keep Falling

“Kath Bloom does upbeat melancholy really well, and when I listen to this song I think of an old house with a benign, unplaceable smell that has always been there and will always be there.” – Willie
