MOMENT | Weekend Playlist


Photo of teenagers at a jukebox by H. Armstrong Roberts, 1969.

Whew! It's been a long couple of weeks and I've been listening to same 12 songs over and over and over again. I am so ready to kick back for a few days with some fresh tunes. My friend Zinzi just recommended the Nasty Gal album by Betty Davis (not to be confused with Bette Davis), which I'm about to download. Any one have any other suggestions, new or old?

I'm digging Feist's new album, Metals. The song "How Come You Never Go There" is worth adding to your list.

Download the CD by Cults! They're amazing! But it's my stepdaughter so I'm biased. But really. Lizzie. They're great.
