Remind Me Tomorrow by Sharon Van Etten
1

Remind Me Tomorrow – Sharon Van Etten

"I can't get enough of Sharon Van Etten's new album, Remind my Tomorrow.  My favorite song is Jupiter 4. Her voice is so captivating and this particular song is so beautiful and eerie--I could listen to it all day."

Nation of Two by Vance Joy

Nation of Two – Vance Joy

"My taste in music is not what I would call cool. It runs the gamut from radio pop to indie folk, but lately I've been all about Vance Joy’s Nation of Two. It's light, uplifting and super catchy, so it's a great way to start my work day."

Merriweather Post Pavilion by Animal Collective
3

Merriweather Post Pavilion – Animal Collective

"I recently watched Hearts Beat Loud, a sad comedy set in Red Hook, Brooklyn, which got me back into Animal Collective’s 2009 studio album Merriweather Post Pavilion. It was one of those records that defined college for me—I loved blasting “Summertime Clothes” while walking the streets of Boston and zoning out to “My Girls” between midterms. I wasn’t alone, either. I remember that trippy cover hanging in more than a few dorm rooms."

I'm All Eats by Let's Eat Grandma
4

I’m All Ears – Let’s Eat Grandma

"I’m seeing Let’s Eat Grandma twice next month so I've been listening to I’m All Ears on repeat. The teenage duo’s second album is an incredible genre-bending trip that is perfect for taking my mind off my long commute. The album closer “Donnie Darko” is an 11-minute mix of psych-pop and disco that might just be the most underrated song of 2018.  Needless to say, I’m very excited to see them in April."

thank u, next – Ariana Grande

"I’m completely obsessed with Ariana Grande’s entire “thank u, next” album. The most popular tracks that were released as singles are all incredible (“thank u, next,” “imagine,” and “7 rings”), but my absolute favorite songs are “needy” and “in my head.”"

Free Yourself Up by Lake Street Dive

Free Yourself Up – Lake Street Dive

"I’ve been going to the Newport Folk Festival for the last three years and this summer will be no different. The lineup this year is incredible--I'm super excited to see Maggie Rogers, Kacey Musgraves, and Lake Street Dive. The latter's most recent album, Free Yourself Up, is one of my favorites right now."

Il est cinq heures by Jacques Dutronc

Il est cinq heures – Jacques Dutronc

"I love discovering (new-to-me) old music that existed before my time. Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of French pop from the 60s. Some of my favorite albums are Françoise Hardy’s Le Temps de L'Amour and Jacques Dutronc’s Hippie Hippie Hourrah. Because sometimes you just want to be transported to a cool, French soirée circa 1965. Or is that just me?"

K.T.S.E. – Teyana Taylor

"A couple months back, I accidentally stumbled on some reviews of Teyana Taylor's long-awaited new album K.T.S.E.--and I haven't stopped listening since then. Her effortless, sultry voice combined with top-notch production keeps the album feeling fresh.  I must listen to it at least once or twice a day."

Anthem of The Peaceful Army – Greta Van Fleet

"When I’m not listening to real crime podcasts, I enjoy listening to all genres of music. My new obsession is Greta Van Fleet, who seems to have gone viral overnight. I grew up listening to my parents’ collection of classic rock on vinyl, and Greta Van Fleet is a modern-day Led Zeppelin.  My favorite from their new album is “You’re The One.” I can’t wait until I get the actual vinyl record delivered so I can blast it on my U-Turn Audio turntable/Marshall Amp setup."
