  1. Love this one!

    At this time of year in the Northeast I love listening to Josh Ritter’s Snow is Gone.

    Some other great spring exuberance songs:
    Sing You Sinners OR Born to Hum- Erin McKeown
    Doomsday – Elvis Perkins in Dearland
    Falling- Ben Kweller (one of the best songs ever)
    Catch My Disease- Ben Lee (this will cure a bad mood ever time.)


  2. Ben Sollee:
    The Prettiest Tree on the Mountain
    Panning for Gold
    It’s not Impossible

    Amos Lee:
    Skipping Stones

    Noah and The Whale:
    2 Atoms in a Molecule


  3. Oh man, yes! I love Katie Herzig! Her entire album The Waking Sleep is great, but I especially love the song “Free My Mind”:

    “My mind is like a heavy hand
    Always making more of what really happened
    A critical imagination always working over time…”

    I also discovered a couple of great songs the other day on Songza’s “Sunshine Indie Pop” station (http://songza.com/discover/record_store_clerk/indie_music_that_s_not_too_weird/sunshine-indie-pop-songza/)

    Kangaroo Court by Capital Cities
    In the Sun by She & Him


  4. The Pretenders – I Go To Sleep
    Alison Moyet – Changeling
    The Pipettes – Your Kisses Are Wasted On Me
    Freda Payne – Band of Gold
    Young Galaxy – Peripheral Visionaries
    Metric – Satellite Mind
    M83 – Skin of The Night
