for now, i bring you my new playlist on VIVA. i slowed it down this week and put in a few new favs + a few old favs.
for the moment, sub pop seems to be killing it right now with some of my favorite bands. there are 3 bands of theirs on this mix. Dum Dum Girls, Beach House and Happy Birthday. I just got the Happy Birthday album a few weeks ago and i've been listening to it non-stop. i think i may need to press pause for a minute. but check it out, cuz it's pretty rad.
other newbies are Morning Benders and The Radio Dept. really into both these bands. got to see morning benders play a few months ago and they were really great. i'm interested to hear older radio dept. songs as they've been around for a bit, just new on my scene. sweden man! good shit coming from there.
Death in June....need to listen to more and you should too. some of their stuff i'm not into at all but some is really amazing. industrial and dreamy. the OMD track is pretty rad too. i keep going back to architecture+morality as being my favorite album of theirs. it's so good.
a few old favs include The Sundays, Bjork, The Smiths, and Beck. i used to listen to the sundays on cassette over and over and over again when i was younger. it was my all time favorite album. still is one of my favorites. beautiful and classic. takes me back to a happy place.
