As we slowly wake up from our hibernation laden winter, we’re gleefully looking ahead to spirited adventures with that special someone. There’s something about it, isn’t there? The warm weather. The flowers. The waves slowly lapping against the shores. Some people may argue that summer is the best time to be single, but we know all of you hopeless romantics out there disagree, as you patiently wait for the grand-scale plans that you have laid out.
Back in 2012 we released our first “Indie Songs for Lovers” playlist with a resounding appreciation from you all. While we may have missed the boat last year, we’re back at it again with a heart-warming selection of over 70 tracks that will leave your lover swooning.
Starting with accoustic folk, this playlist will take you on a journey through poppy indie rock all the way to some smooth rolling beats to set the mood.
Press play and get lost in love, ninjas.

Most things in our lives don’t just happen if we all sit around and wait for them. Sometimes, we’ve got to get up off our asses and give it all we got. Sure the grind is exhausting, but if you really want something, the only way you’re gonna get it is to go out and get it. Unless all you want is a simple playlist for your listening enjoyment that is. In that case, don’t you dare lift a finger. Well, lift one finger….but only to press play.

Love (BAILE Remix)
Growing up in the late 80’s and 90’s, I always wondered what it would be like to ride Falcor from the Never Ending Story. Something about riding a half dragon, half dog, way up above the rest of the world was a fantasy I often indulged in. Thanks to Asgier, I now fully know what that seemingly impossible feat would feel like.
All kidding aside, there’s something in the water up in Iceland. They have such a knack for blending gorgeous vocal tones with impeccable harmonies and meticulous piano work. Staying in the same vein as one of our long-time favorites, Sigur Ros, Asgier has created a booming, cinematic song that’s worthy of any classic epic tale. If they make a movie about the Iliad, this song should be in the soundtrack.
This one is extremely easy to wander off to, so we suggest a solid pair of headphones and a good cocktail to accompany it.
Up-and-comer duo RBTS WIN tease us with upcoming summer vibes in “Death Magic,” a sneak preview into their album Palm Sunday. Semblant to Painted Palms and the laid-back Vacationer sound (give the song “Trip” a go), this track sets a sultry pace in an easy 20 seconds. It’s got that balanced combo of psychedelia and pop that really exhales that sunny vibrancy.
Soak it all up. The easy cadence will transport you instantly to a beachside boardwalk, midsummer or to a sunlit, sun-basking easy mountain hike. The hazy, warm nostalgia meanders gently and brings you some of their native warmth from Miami Beach all the way up to their current outpost in Asheville, NC.
As the weather’s finally waking everyone up from hibernation, let this track welcome all things warm and laid-back to come. We’re stoked to let this one roll on repeat and wait as patiently as possible for the full album to ease its way out.
Berlin-based songwriter and producer Niklas Kramer, known as Still Parade, has had a slow start with the release of his four-track EP “Fields.” Initially completed in 2013, tracks from the EP have been kept under the radar…until now. The premier of lead track Fields has left us in love with Still Parade.
There can honestly never be enough relaxing tracks like Fields in the world. This has such a feel-good melody that you can just get lost in. Fields doesn’t just have your typical indie-folk sound, though; there are bursts of electronic beats that are placed between the chilling instrumentals that make this track so amazing. These etherial electro-indie sounds are matched by the soft vocals of Niklas Kramer, creating a calm and dreamy tune that anyone with a love for indie could listen to for hours. Yes, hours.
The only negative about “Fields” is that you’re gonna have to wait until May 6th to stream and download the entire EP. But for now, ninjas, enjoy this track and get excited for what’s to come from Still Parade.
Work. Most of us gotta do it. Some of us love it, most of us hate it. If you love it, wonderful. Here’s a little playlist to add icing to that cake. If you hate it, we’re sorry. Here’s a little playlist to help you get through however many more hours you have until you break free. Rain or shine. We’re here for you.
