The days will never be longer this year than they are right now. That's the perfect excuse to pack some extra music into your schedule. As spring dawns on 2017, festivals are taking root and new music is blossoming from every genre. But will all of it have that perfect springtime feel?
This playlist does. Kicking off with Joan Jett and The Blackhearts' "Crimson and Clover," it's full of songs that are perfect for blasting out car windows that haven't been rolled down in months. "Triangular Daisies" from Rubblebucket and "Perfume" by The Coathangers follow on Joan's heels to keep the good vibes rolling.
Sports Boyfriend makes an appearance with "Novelty," the perfect track for new love when young folks' fancies turn to thoughts of love. That's followed up by Psalm One and a few of her pals from Les Rapperchicks laying down the super smooth "Just U And Us" live.
Menacerno wants us all to wake up on "Up In Arms" before Lion Babe makes a demand of all lovers in "Treat Me Like Fire." Unknown Mortal Orchestra's "So Good At Being In Trouble" is another good song for anyone ego tripping with the newfound sunlight.
"Poison Ivy" by Bleached and "Take It As It Comes" by The Vivian Girls are both potent reminders that spring's new love doesn't always last until summer. And Natalie Grace Alford's "Type of Wound" is an upbeat lament for those wilting romances.
Who else but Nelly Furtado could bring it all home with "I'm Like A Bird," the perfect song for flying through the season.
