- The Spinto Band, "Amy + Jen." For mellow mornings
- Palma Violets, "Step Up for the Cool Cats." Organ + slow kick drum = timeless rock 'n roll.
- Foxygen, "No Destruction." I could listen to this 100000 times
- Veronica Falls, "Everybody's Changing." Including you, Veronica Falls, and I like it.
- Motorama, "Wind in Her Hair." Matt found this the other day browsing YouTube and we both dug it. This came out a few years ago but is new to us!
- Nightlands, "So Far, So Long." We're making up the words to our own song.
- My Bloody Valentine, "New You." For the haziest of evenings only
- Moving Units, "Until She Says." Another Youtube find. Apparently these guys were sorta big circa 2001, although this song is from 2011
- STRFKR, "While I'm Alive." Feeling the trashy, toy keyboard sounds here. Reminds me of a night at a really weird drag bar
- The Great American Novel, "This Song Will Make You Love Me." No one is normal, just different kinds of weird.
- Foals, "My Number." Grooooooooooooves
- Local Natives, "Black Balloons." I wasn't so sure about this record at first, but it's slowing growing on me. "Black Balloons" is a real jam.
Google image result #3 for "Black Balloons" (image via hayanstreet.

this name as well?
