Today's playlist is fairly eclectic and decidedly untwang-y. But sometimes you have to shake it up, yannow?
1. Sure Sure -- "Koreatown" has a catchy beat reminiscent of early aughts indie rock but an intensity that keeps the song up-to-date.
2. Dresage -- "Center" is a trip-hop track with some serious soul.
3. Garden City -- "Toward the Pain" takes a pop song and strips it to its essentials. The harmonies are beautiful and the careful guitar work add a warmth to the song.
4. Raincity Blue -- "Tell Me" is a rock'n'soul number that makes a song about getting stuck in a rut into an awesome dance number.
5. Rare Monk -- "Power" has a distinctive Brit-pop groove that'll stick with you for a long time.
6. No Drinks For Jimmy -- "Little Girl" is a classic bar band rocker refracted through the hazy light of an amber beer glass.
7. Sebastian Janoski -- "Toy" is a gently defiant push against an inconstant lover.
8. Sondags -- "Haunted Paradise" is a quirky number that channels early millennial ennui and 50s rock'n'roll.
9. Amy Rosalyn -- "Precipice" is resolute as it furls into a powerful crescendo, but it's Rosalyn's voice that's the true engine to this song.
10. Ponytails -- "Pieces" is a slushy foot-tapper that both revels and wallows in being the dumper rather than the dumpee.
