Maybe it’s because I’m a product of the late 90s and early 00s, but I still love creating mix CDs. Some people might call this a playlist, but those people probably have fancy auxiliary cables in their cars. I am not one of those people. Check out the most recent tunes I’ve been rocking out to!
Right now I am extremely drawn to some girly-pop synth-driven jams. Most of these songs are spunky and make you wish it was already summer. Instead I’m stuck in present day Pittsburgh where I’m hoping that spring actually decides to show up for more than an afternoon.
Here are some bonus tidbits about my favorites:
I listened to the Misterwives Reflections EP exclusively for at least a week straight when I first discovered it. This is why two songs from them appear on this mix.
JJAMZ, which I just learned is pronounced juh-jamz and makes me love them more, is a super group with members from Rilo Kiley + Bright Eyes, Maroon 5, The Like, and Phantom Planet.
“Robots in Love” might be my favorite gem on this mix. I’m almost 100% positive 16 year old Jess Lonett would really dig this song too.
I’d love to know if you discover any new favorites through this mix and feel free to share whatever treats your ears have been listening to lately!
