The mainstream indie releases this week are fabulous at a minimum, but for most, this playlist will take you into the epic stratosphere. There are a few soulful releases from the likes of On an On, Ducktails and Owl & Mouse, while Foals and Nervo keep us on our toes with some upbeat tunes. If banjo riffs and countryside aromas are your thing, make sure to check out The Dustbowl Revival. For those already prepping for Friday Night Sexy Mode, check out Fingertips by Leo Kaylan and Leaves by Baile. For an updated sexy throwback, listen to the cover of Baby One More Time by Tove Styrke. This is a dangerously diverse & awesome playlist to the point that you may want to wait until Saturday or Sunday to listen to it – just trying to help and make sure you don’t peak too early in the weekend.
