I Need Your Light (Playlist: April 10, 2016)

I Need Your Light
Compiled on April 10, 2016


Springtime not only means NEW FLOWERS in bloom, it also means NEW BANDS IN BLOOM as well as old bands sprouting NEW ALBUMS. Running with that visual, this playlist is my beautiful BOUQUET to music lovers in need of sniffing out some new tunes. This playlist reflects many of the recent shows I’ve been too — Harriet, Day Wave, HEARTWATCH, Owl Paws, Ra Ra Riot, Hey Marseilles, The Joy Formidable, Father John Misty, Little Green Cars, Geographer, The Arkells— as well as the awesome new bands I discovered as openers for these shows — And the Kids, Everything Everything, John Mark Nelson, The Crookes. It also includes some of the sparkly new gems I dug up from the HIGHLY ANTICIPATED new albums by The Lumineers, Frightened Rabbit (both who I’ll both be seeing next month) and Highasakite (they NEED to come to Cali soon!). TWO HOURS of tunes that hopefully get ya skipping through those FIELDS OF BLOOM! 😀
