I by Kendrick Lamar

His first song since his last album, Kendrick’s confidant, cheery single shows he’s still a step above every other rapper.

Stolen Dance by Milky Chance

A new group that recently worked its way into the alternative top charts, Milky Chance’s relaxing, upbeat music is perfect for just about anything; from walking from class to class, to background music when you have friends over.

O Valencia! By The Decemberists

The Perfect Crime #2 by The Decemberists

Oh The Decemberists, where to start. An indie folk band from Portland, The Decemberists tell tales of star-crossed lovers, despicable villains, tragic misfortunes and so much more. They don’t just sing songs, they tell stories that everyone can take something away from.

The Temptation of Adam by Josh Ritter

 A cute, cozy love song with a twist. Ritter’s album “The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter” combine folk music with a nice blend of history for an interesting musical experience.

Cigarette Daydreams by Cage the Elephant

 When the album “Melophobia” was released, the track “Come a Little closer” practically owned the alternative radio stations. “Cigarette daydreams” was a criminally underrated track, that’s manages to raise ones spirits when they have been shot down.

Shadow by Childish Gambino

Although its almost already a year old, Childish Gambino’s last album “Because the Internet” is still unlike any other hip hop album out there. Anyone who enjoys rap should give these songs a try.

Slipping Husband by The National

My all time favorite alternative band, The National’s sad lyrics and tone provide the perfect soundtrack for any troubled day.

Green Grass by I Am Arrows

 Everybody has a summer song. The one song your ears hear more than anything between June and August. Green Grass was mine.
