Our friend (and professional playlist curator), Taylor has put together his long weekend playlist for some easy listening over these next 3 well-deserved days off. Keep reading for his top 5 picks for the weekend ahead.
It’s finally the weekend, and lucky for us, it’s a long one! Here's a little taste of what I’ll be listening to while I relax and spend some time on a patio or two.
Talking Straight- Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
Australian band, Rolling Blackout Coastal Fevers' lead single of their upcoming album is a real jammer. The lively guitars and pop hooks really bring that Saturday midday-beverage-break type of mood. It'll be on repeat all weekend. Beverages as well.
Just A Stranger (Ft. Steve Lacy)- Kali Uchis
What’s not to like about Kali Uchis? Her new album Isolation is a contender for album of the year for me. Her pop and RnB blend really works well. On Just a Stranger, she recruits wonder-kid, Steve Lacy to feature vocals. This is the song you play while getting ready on a Friday night.
It’s Not Just Me- Lets Eat Grandma
Don’t let the name fool you. This is not a black metal band, it’s a super pop duo. All their releases in 2018 have been fun, but this one may be my favourite of theirs. It has everything I want in a pop song; fun synths, catchy vocals, and honest lyrics. You will definitely be hearing more about these girls in the near future.
Mr. Tillman- Father John Misty
Love him or hate him, Josh Tillman (AKA Father John Misty), writes great songs. Mr. Tillman is no different. His ability to paint a picture with his lyrics is truly head and shoulders above anyone else in the game right now. This song is that perfect Sunday afternoon relaxation song (with beverage in hand).
Four Years- Cullen Omori
The former front man of the band Smith Westerns is out with a new single called Four Years. It’s a classic indie-pop song. The upfront vocals and vocals on the chorus are really catchy. The song ends up being stuck in my head for hours whenever I listen to it. This is another one for the patio, for sure.
