I have to start by acknowledging that everything I know about tunes I learned from Babygirl. If she hadn’t taken me under her musical wing a few years ago I’d still be listening to Mariah and Ja Rule on repeat (love you Mariah!)
My tastes run towards the upbeat, an umbrella that includes rap, hip-hop, pop, electronic, indie, and rock. If you want mopey Sufjan Stevens and Bon Iver, talk to Marge (ew). Babygirl has the hookup on country tunes, she does live in the south, after all.
Here’s where I go to cruise new indie and electronic jams:
http://fridaymixtape.com/ – new mix every Friday, so damn good!
www.themusicninja.com – more dubstep and techno than I prefer, but posts every day, which is a plus
www.prettymuchamazing.com – similar to The Music Ninja, minus the dubstep and Tiesto remixes
I use Pandora at the office when I’m feeling lazy and need music going, but Pandora really sucks butt sometimes. Just because I added Miike Snow as a thread 2 years ago doesn’t mean I want to listen to 10 Animal remixes every day! And stop trying to make Florence & the Machine happen, how many times do I have to “dislike?!! Anywhowho, my go-to station is Hooches of Haunch, feel free to turn it on if you’re looking for background tunes.
So without further ado, here’s some jams I’ve been feeling recently (hopefully I’ll be able to figure out how to upload mp3s by the next post):
