“Amanaemonesia” by Chairlift

Chairlift - Amanaemonesia (Video)

Weird video, weird dance, weird lyrics, inevitably I love it. I can’t avoid wanting to dance next to vocalist Caroline in a strange white bodysuit.” – Yisel


“Bone Crown” by Marah in the Mainsail

“Working at a concert venue almost every night, it takes a lot for a band to stand out to me. I happened to cashier for this band in a room that held about 200 people, and I was blown away by their unique style. When I was done working, I stayed for the show, danced in the crowd, and even bought a shirt.” – Becca


“Strong/ENOUGH” by Le Butcherettes

Le Butcherettes - strong/ENOUGH (Official Music Video)

“The first time I saw Teri Gender-Bender perform was back in Guadalajara, Mexico, the city where the band was formed and where I was born and raised. She wore a blue ’50s housewife dress and in her hands, she held a bowl and mixed some flour that ended up all around the stage.  Teri’s performances are intense, full of energy, a must see.” – Yisel


“깨진 거울 Broken Mirror” by Minwhee Lee

깨진 거울 Broken Mirror

“Even if you’re not intrigued by the brutal scene on the album cover, the warm and unhurried folk music behind it will charm you. Listen while it rains or at night or by a fire… or in the living room… or when you’re looking at reeds.” – Willie


“Morning Terrors Nights of Dread” by Shilpa Ray

Shilpa Ray "Morning Terrors Nights Of Dread" (Official Music Video)

“This week, I accidentally found this song.  I liked it so much that I had to listen to more Shilpa Ray.  Her album “Door Girl” is a grandiose mixture of blues, punk, rock, garage and more. ” – Yisel


“I Am What You Want Me To Be” by The Jungle Giants

The Jungle Giants - I Am What You Want Me To Be (OFFICIAL)
“Yes, Quiet Ferocity was the album that launched them into the stratosphere (of Australian indie). But Learn to Exist has some gems on it, including this one, which absolutely goes off live.” – Andrew


“Tema della Strada” by Franco Ferrara

“I was whistling Nino Rota’s theme to La Strada in the staircase at work a few days ago (great acoustics, always empty), but after whistling loud and hard, I heard a door close and someone walk out. Doesn’t matter--I’m a good whistler and the theme is made for whistling. This is more of an overture, but you get all the good bits from the film. I should watch it again soon.” – Willie


“Halfway to Heaven” by Panama Wedding

“Are we there yet? Listening to this track brings about pure elation and is very well-produced by Peter Kirk, of the melodic alternative band Panama Wedding. The catchy melodies and soft lyrics touches your soul, something that the talented roster at Glassnote Records often does.” – Jay


“Phoenix, ‘Agnus Dei'” by Ola Gjeilo

The Stillwater Choir ACDA Concert Performing Agnus Dei Phoenix

“I had the privilege of singing under the Dr. Eric Christianson, who himself and family are legendary in the choral music world. My senior year we were presented with this beast of a piece. Out of all the musical moments in any song I’ve ever heard, the thunderous explosion of three cords at the tail end of the piece has to be it. Words can’t describe the sound, so I won’t try, just please put on some solid headphones!” – Allie


“Patience” by The Lumineers

The Lumineers - Patience On 1:45 Loop

“This delicate instrumental encompasses the vintage and romantic sound of the Lumineers, and was also a tune I’ve recently achieved on the piano, myself. It is a fun one to play, but even nicer to have it played for you.” – Allie


“Don’t Stand So Close to Me” by The Police

The Police - Don't Stand So Close To Me (Official Music Video)

“Sting’s unique voice always captures me. He shares a similar vocal quality to Phil Collins, Celine Dion, and Delores O’Riordan. Not to be mistaken with vocal ability- close to none can compare to Ms. Dion herself; however, they have this etherial sonic that sounds almost atmospheric to the listening ear. Im obsessed with this sort of resonance.” – Allie


“Rotterdam (Or Anywhere)” by The Beautiful South

The Beautiful South - Rotterdam (Or Anywhere) with lyrics
“Out of the ashes of The Housemartins came The Beautiful South, AKA one of the most underrated English bands of all time. Jacqui Abbott takes lead vocals on this melancholic beauty about being lost in a sea of nameless faces.” – Andrew


“The Drain” by Ellis

ellis - the drain (official audio)
“Hamilton, Ontario is home to the CFL’s Tiger-Cats, the best season of Someone Knows Something, and of course, Linnea Siggelkow, AKA Ellis. This shoegaze masterpiece is one of the finest songs I’ve heard this year, and if you’re in New York, you can celebrate Canada Day on Wednesday by seeing her along with Alvvays in Central Park--for free!” – Andrew


“Night Vision” by Charlotte Hatherley

Charlotte Hatherley - Night Vision
“She was in the backing band for Birdy, and at some point on tour we were introduced. Shortly after, I found out Charlotte records her own music too, which is always a pleasant surprise to know that touring members have their own special projects in the works. Night Vision is a dreamy and alluring tune, both lyrically and instrumentally, especially with its layering synths.” – Jay


“Little Man” by Atmosphere

Little Man - Atmosphere

“In this song, Sean of Atmosphere, reflects on his relationship with his son, father, and himself.” – Becca


“Ritmo 21” by Diseno Corbusier

Diseño Corbusier - Ritmo 21

“There are quite a few albums I have no memory of downloading and I have no idea where I found, and this is one of them. But I have me to thank for gifting it to me. Really expressive vocals, scary almost? It’s the kind of album whose ideal listening environment is an empty black box theater.” – Willie


“Where Is My Mind” by Yoav

Yoav (Ft. Emily Browning) - Where Is My Mind? w/ Lyrics
“From the soundtrack of the 2011 fantasy film, Sucker Punch, Emily Browning (who stars in the movie) also sings on this cover track of the famous Pixies song, “Where Is My Mind”. However, it’s really the second half of the song which turns a corner and grabs my attention. Slow and sweet meets fast and groovy. It’s a surprisingly interesting direction they took for this remake, rocking a catchy bass, distorted layering vocals, orchestral vibes, and motions of the whammy bar.” – Jay


“Is There a Place I Can Go” by Trudy and the Romance

Trudy and the Romance - Is There A Place I Can Go - Vevo dscvr (Live)

“I just think this song is beautiful. I can’t help but hum along whenever I hear it.” – Becca
