Julianna Lowe – Still Woozy – by Lava

“I’ve been riding my bike a lot. This song sounds like the way the wind feels blowing through my hair.”



Laurel Deppen – Can I Go On – by Sleater-Kinney

“The uncertainty of daily life while social distancing can be summed up in this song, ‘Everyone I know is napping, half the day thrown away, but I can’t find the thrill anymore.’ Yet the song is still upbeat.”


Casey Warner – Tired of Being Alone – by Al Green

“Quarantine is getting old. I need social interaction.” 


Morgan Bass – Helpless Blues – by The Bamboos

“This song is just one of those that you listen to and you cant sit still. Try it, I dare you.”


Jake Dressman – Wintertime – by YBN Cordae

“A modern throwback to the OG hip-hop era, Cordae has a way with words in this slow-beat fast-talking tune.”


Abbey Nutter – Come Along – by Cosmo Sheldrake

“With a folksy tune and a the vibe of a medieval revel, this song has a way of taking you away from reality and placing you into a kind of enchanted woods setting.”


Cassady Lamb – 40 Day Dream – by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros

“It really does feel like I’ve been living in a 40 day dream, the magical mystery kind. #coronavirusgoaway”


Casey Warner – Black and Blue – by Miike Snow

“Relatable lyrics and great to listen to with windows down.”


Morgan Bass – Gutter Girl – Hot Flash Heat Wave

“Punk Gorgeousness. Makes me want to mosh.”
