“Cannily Cannily” by Maddy Prior & Tim Hart

“I’ve found that English folk is best in either of the “odd” seasons--fall and spring. Times of great seasonal change bring about cozy ballads, perfect against the chilly weather. I say all this despite the fact that this track comes from the album “Summer Solstice,” the very middle of a static season. These two folk legends work perfectly together, and “Cannily Cannily” is a drone-filled masterwork.” -- Willie


“Golden Hour” by Kacey Musgraves

Kacey Musgraves - Golden Hour (Audio)

“This song sounds like the color gold and a chilly breeze to me, sitting with your love drinking tea, happy as can be. Call me The Poet, Allie P.” -- Allie


“Hang On To Your Ego” by Frank Black

Frank Black - Hang On To Your Ego (Official Video)

“This is a cover of the original version of what would later become “I Know There’s an Answer” by The Beach Boys, off their legendary album Pet Sounds. This cover is by far the best version of the song, in my opinion.” -- Dave


“Don’t Call Me” by Kat Edwards

Kat Edwards - Don't Call Me - Audio

“Kat blew me away when I saw her play the Home Brewed Stage at Falls Festival in Tasmania at the ripe old age of 16. Three years on and she’s only getting stronger, evidenced by this new gem. I can’t wait to see what comes next from her.” -- Andrew


“Falling and Laughing” by Orange Juice

Orange Juice - Falling and laughing

Though it’s no “Breakfast Time,” this is another danceable track from an endlessly likeable Scottish group. There’s just so much going on with the bass that it puts you on edge (in the best, grooviest way possible).” -- Willie


“Better Open the Door” by Motion City Soundtrack

Motion City Soundtrack - "Better Open The Door" (Full Album Stream)

“From the CC Club to the Triple Rock”- I’m a sucker for songs that show my home city some love. It helps too that the first time I heard this song, last night in fact, I was actually in the CC Club.” -- Becca


“Pool Party” Julia Jacklin

Julia Jacklin - Pool Party (Official Video)

“3/4 time makes me weak at the knees. There is a whimsical lightness that it conveys leaving me floating in a cloud of pink and gold stardust. Julia Jacklin’s voice puts the track over the edge with her swoon-worthy performance.” -- Allie


“Perfume” by The Coathangers

The Coathangers - Perfume (OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO)

“This jam loads us up with rhythmic guitar riffs and grungy bass lines, reminiscent of bands like Ex Hex and Death Valley Girls.” -- Jay


“Bloom” by Great Grandpa

Great Grandpa - Bloom (Official Audio)

“It’s easy to pressure ourselves to accomplish our goals within a certain time frame or feel like we’re not achieving enough. But Great Grandpa remind us that even Tom Petty “wrote his best songs when he was 39.” -- Colleen


“The Night Starts Here” by Stars

Stars - The Night Starts Here

“This Toronto band has released some great albums over the years, and this one off one of their best: 2007’s In Our Bedroom After the War. They’re a must have on any playlist of indie anthems of the 2000s.” -- Andrew


“Shockwave City” by Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats

Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats - Shockwave City (OFFICIAL PROMO)

“Uncle Acid is a favorite band of mine to see live. I’m seeing them again in a couple of days and I’ve been preparing myself by listening to their entire discography.” -- Becca


“94 -- Eme DJ & Couenmain Remix” by Soldout

Soldout - 94 (Eme DJ & Couenmain Remix)

“The ’80s vibes in this remix sports a disco getup with moves to get you giddy in this fun song by Soldout.” -- Jay
