Open in Spotify


“Generationwhy” by ZHU

ZHU - Generationwhy (Official Video)

“The July sunshine has left me radiating with positive energy, and my favorite way to celebrate these vibes is on a dance floor. This tune transports me to a colorful lit club floor where I put on my grind face and get down to the nasty drops.” -- Allie


“Mundian To Bach Ke (Jay-Z Remix) by Panjabi MC & Jay-Z

Panjabi MC: Beware Of The Boys (Ft. Jay-Z)

“This remix was included as the last track of Panjabi MC’s The Album, and having not read through the tracks, I think I literally gasped when I heard Jay-Z. He’s honestly a great addition to an already A+ track, and he gets some international digs in at Bush and Reagan.” -- Willie


“Chant De La Mer” by Veronique Chalo

Veronique Chalot - Chant de la Mer

“Really flowy French folk music about nature played on the dulcimer might be the ultimate chef’s kiss for me.” -- Willie


“Adult Diversion” by Alvvays

Alvvays - Adult Diversion (Official Video)

“This song was in my head all day Saturday and I can’t help but share it with y’all. And what better way to celebrate both Canada Day and the 4th of July than with a band containing members from both sides of the border?” -- Andrew


“Silverfuck” by Smashing Pumpkins

Silverfuck (Remastered)

It’s July, and there’s a line in this song about July that I think about every time it’s July. Did I mention it’s July? Also, Smashing Pumpkins are my favorite band so I’m never opposed to a cheeky SP listen.” -- Andrew


“Misread” by Kings of Convenience

Kings Of Convenience - Misread

“Every time I listen to this song I can’t help but think of the video. It makes me wish I was just laying on the grass, playing the guitar, without any worries from the outer world.” -- Yisel


“Pulling Our Weight” by The Radio Dept.

The Radio Dept. - Pulling Our Weight EP [complete]

“Everything from The Radio Dept.  just makes me want to close my eyes and melt into their sound. Somehow, their songs always give me a serene feeling.” -- Yisel


“Help Me Lose My Mind” by Disclosure & London Grammar

Disclosure - Help Me Lose My Mind (Mazde Remix)

“Like I said, I’ve got the dancing bug. This song is the kiss that’s been on my list--shout out to my boys, Hall & Oates.” -- Allie


“Tuolumne” by Incan Abraham

Incan Abraham - Tuolumne (Official Video)

“A slower tune that rocks a groovy bass packed with smooth guitar licks, before Incan Abraham serenades us with his soothing and passionate vocals in Tuolumne.” -- Jay


“This Is How You Spell ‘HAHAHA’, We Destroyed the Hopes and Dreams of a Generation of Faux-Romantics” by Los Campesinos!

This Is How You Spell "HAHAHA, We Destroyed The Hopes And Dreams Of A Generation Of...

“This song fades in and is full of life. Full of instruments, a fiddle, different rock elements, lyrical narratives, and packs a very get-off-your-seat and bop along vibe. What a track title too.” -- Jay


“Something New” by Secret Weapons

Secret Weapons - Something New

“The joyous chorus and poppy lyrical delivery are what makes this ballad shine for the NYC band, Secret Weapons. Guitar driven with revitalizing synths blends seamlessly to motivate you if you need a pick-me-up.” -- Jay


“90210” by The Courtneys

The Courtneys - "90210" (Official Music Video)

“This has the potential to be the song of the summer for me. I saw Vancouver’s The Courtneys in Central Park last week and they played this song despite not having done so in years, and it was a real special moment--even for me, who didn’t know them before but digs them now!” -- Andrew


“Surf’s Up” by The Beach Boys

Surf's Up - The Beach Boys

“So obviously this is a fantastic example of Brian Wilson’s exceptional talents, but I heard Chris Thile and I’m With Her cover it on Live From Here this week, and it was the most pleasantly unexpected rendition. Both versions have such a delicate voice. Anyways, surf’s up!” -- Willie


“Doin’ It Right” by Daft Punk & Panda Bear

Daft Punk - Doin' it Right

“When the tune ‘Get Lucky’ dropped in April of 2013, I couldn’t stop listening to the electronic breakdown in the bridge, which very pungently reeked of Daft Punk magic. This tune opened up a window of exploration to me in expanding my knowledge of EDM. There’s a sophistication about this tune that grounds me in my love for the genre and the duo.” -- Allie


“A Sunday Smile” by Beirut

A Sunday Smile (by Beirut)

“Ukuleles, accordions, violins, trumpets, pianos, guitars and more. Beirut uses a variety of instruments to create their indie-world music sound. This song makes me want to be camping beneath pine trees singing with a group of people, which is surprising since I am a city person.” -- Yisel
