Indie Playlist Mondays
Every week, we’ll share new tracks and videos that make us say yay!
Allow us to complement your growing indie playlist with some of the Sweetest tunes.
We don’t rate with numbers because everything is cat-approved.
01. Phèdre – Aphrodite
Roddy: Mahjong. Livingroom-neoballet. Face paint+costumes. Beautiful sound. I can keep throwing words at it all day but I’ll always fall short — that’s why the vid is here 🙂
02. Purple Velvet – You Are | Exploited
Roddy: It’s a California summer and you’re sitting in your room; it’s 87° but feels like a 100° kinda evening. You’re grooving to this with the blinds half-opened, sunset spilling into your .
03. Cyclist – Live at The Arsenal, LA (05/12/2012)
Roddy: Cyclist laying it down with some smooth set from Lalaland. Abide by Cali luv sonn.
04. Flight Facilities feat. Grovesnor – With You
Reuel: Reasons, animated and otherwise, why I can’t be seen with you. More of that sexy-time disco vibe with robotic underwear. With You is Flight Facilities’ third official single released on Future Classic, and features Hot Chip drummer Grovesnor. Compared to their previous music videos, this one’s more Interstella than glam.
05. Higher Internet – Ha Rewerqd EP

06. DSKOTEK – MEGAMAN (Noms “Robot Master” Remix)

07. Ghibli – Rare Pleasures
Reuel: Ghibli’s based in Edmonton, Canada but has immigrant family roots from Eastern Europe, where Eurohouse music became a major influence. According to his Bandcamp description:
As [Ghibli] began making electronic music in his teens, the influence of that early European house re-emerged in his mind, receiving it’s finest summation on his new album Rare Pleasures, a ten track opus built entirely of samples collected from Youtube videos.
08. Groundislava – Inverted Audio Mix 64
Reuel: This one’s dedicated 2 all da Driplets in their bedrooms. I h i g h l y recommend that you find your most comfortable pair of cans and listen to this Groundislava mix alone at night b4 u get your ultra-catnap on.
09. SpaceGhostPurrp – Tha Black God
Reuel: If you’re quick to foretell the death of rap/hip-hop, you haven’t been listening to The Black God, SpaceGhostPurrp. Real talk 4 your indie playlists.

13. CESAR – LOUD DROPS
Reuel: When I’m in the shower, half-forgetting I need to be somewhere and half-notgivingafuq, I get caught up staring 2 deep into the porcelain. Time slows and water drips out of the showerhead sounding like this CESAR EP.
14. Night Works – I Tried So Hard (Gold Panda Remix)
Reuel: Gold Panda says: Making music at home and playing it to people not at home. Drea M. from Sweetest Drip FB (LIVE FROM. . . work ;_;) says:
