The Vaccines—Post Break-Up Sex
never gets old
- Naked - The Delta Riggs. The best description I can think to describe this track is sly.
- What It Is - Kodaline. As always, a beautiful, calming song that has a feeling of nostalgia and reminiscing.
- Heirloom - Sleeping At Last. It kind of sounds like country at the very beginning, but grows beautifully into the likes of Vance Joy.
- Fantasy - MS MR. Their other tracks haven’t captivated me as much as this one.
- Wraith - Peace. A fun song, given the title.
- Habits (Stay High) - Tove Lo. I’ve been listening to the remix for a couple of months, but the verses of the original are worth it, even if they are a bit odd.
- Chandelier - Sia. We’re not ones for pop music much, but this one’s my current favourite on the radio.
- Summer Dress - July Talk. The first three seconds of this track will explain their sound perfectly.
- From Afar - Vance Joy. A little slower than his bigger hit, Riptide, but still just as good.
- Work Song - Hozier. The low hums, drums, and guitar tabs are brilliant; not to mention the articulate lyrics and soulful voice that is Hozier.

HMR vs. THE NBHD
- Shawn Mendes released a self-titled EP. It includes Life of the Party.
- Theory of a Deadman’s new album is called Savages, the most notable tracks being Angel and Blow.
- The Voyager is a record from Jenny Lewis. I quite enjoy Just One of they Guys, She’s Not Me, and the self-titled track.
- Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj collaborated on the new single Bang Bang.
- Random White Dude Be Everywhere is actually the titled of Diplo’s album. Freak and Revolution seem to be the most popular songs.
- Marianas Trench released a single entitled Pop 101, barely featuring Anami Vice; it’s catchy just like you’d expect it to be.
- Hilary Duff is also back with her single Chasing the Sun.
- Peasant: I think you've bought enough band tshirts
- Me: I think you've breathed enough
The first person I ever truly loved committed suicide almost 6 years ago and I was wondering if you could maybe do a playlist about missing him- maybe including why by the rascal flatts- sorry if this is weird
Do NOT apologize, of course we will do this request! Our deepest condolences go out to you and his family and friends. If there’s anything else we can do to help, please let us know. We’ll try our best to create a perfect playlist for you, including songs that can vocalize, not only with lyrics but with the music as well, the feelings of hurt and longing you must feel.
On this day in music history: July 25, 1965 - Bob Dylan performs an “all electric” set at the Newport Folk Festival with Mike Bloomfield and members of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band backing him up. The act of a folk musician playing an electric guitar is considered by the audience to be musical heresy, and react negatively by booing Dylan. He will leave the stage after just three songs. The incident will inspire Dylan to write and record the song “Positively 4th Street” four days later, a rebuke of former friends in the folk music community who have criticized him for “going electric”. Bob Dylan will accidently leave the guitar that he plays during his set at Newport behind on the private chartered plane he travels from the venue on. The sunburst 1964 Fender Stratocaster thought to have been lost for over four decades, is found in the possession of the pilot’s family in 2012. The guitar will be found with several sheets of paper in the case containing early drafts of several unfinished songs. The instrument will sell at auction (from Christie’s auction house) for a record breaking $965,000 (to an anonymous bidder) in December of 2013. It surpasses the amount paid for the previous record holder, Eric Clapton’s black Fender Stratocaster nicknamed “Blackie”, which had sold for $959,000 in 2004.
