Last week’s ode to Midnight City was the most divisive post to date, with some of you loving the sick beats I unearthed and others indicting the limited craftsmanship behind the featured mashups. Either way, I love the engagement. One of the main things I want to do with this blog is SPARK a conversation (see what I did there?).
This week’s Three Song Thursday pulls material from a group that’s easy to hate: hipsters. Despite doing their best to alienate themselves from society through practiced aloofness and disastrous wardrobe choices, sometimes hipsters make good music. Whereas last week I struggled to come up with three versions of Midnight City worthy of posting, this week was an exercise of culling down an abundance of great choices. Here were the last three hipster anthems standing for this week:
- Obligatory songs sung in a moving vehicle category: Youngblood Hawke, “Forever.”
- Ignoring the fact that this might be a stalker anthem category: St. Lucia, “All Eyes On You.”
- Rising popularity hurting hipster status category: Family of the Year, “Buried.”
But wait, what’s this!? BONUS ROUND: Voice of an angel category: City and Colour, ”The Girl.”
Awesome tunes, all of them. Hope you enjoyed.
