April didn’t fail to deliver some excellent music, as a convenience I have collected the best ones in a playlist for you to enjoy. In order of appearance, I give you the mixtape of April! (Playlist at the bottom)
Cellar Man – Mumblr
Mumblr is back! This excellent opening track of the new album mixes disco(!) with fuzzy vocals and awesome indie rock!
(I Blame) Society – Titus Andronicus
Oh yeah! Political classic punk rock executed perfectly – Bam!
On My Side – Dehd
Lo-fi with a high pitch chorus that is as outstanding as it is timeless!
Aaron – Palehound
Wonderful suggestive indie pop that you can’t help but love!
Coasting – Golden Chow
This earworm is so chill and absolutely charming – great stuff!
Over and Over – The Go Rounds
The coolest tune this month – a must listen! Halting space rock with applause for the solo and everything!
Fathom – Hooveriii
Indie rock with heavy metal riffs and hints of psychedelic rock!
Vices – Dogheart
A great laid back indie rock tune for your summer playlists!
Tomorrow Might as Well Be Today – Chris Forsyth
Great guitar riffs in this uplifting instrumental rock tune – awesome!
Teenage Birdsong – Four Tet
Damn near perfection, ’nuff said! (Well one thing; the 80’s TV-show break is just wonderful!)
Anytime – Mavis Staples
This is how you do soul! Listen and learn, kids.
Partner – Belaver
An indie duet that is so very charming – love it!
I’m Still Here – Modest Mouse
That Modest Mouse would surprise me was something I didn’t think, but they did and in an impressive way!
Wild Flowers – Lykantropi
Psychadelic myth-folk rock from the depths of Värmland. Totally awesome!
Wonder – Wand
Desert rock guitars as the backdrop on this beautiful indie melody! Love the bells!
Navy Red – Tundra
You need some punk rock to get you through the days, and this tune will have you set!
Little Trouble – Better Oblivion Community Center
I did not expect more from everyone’s favorite indie duo so soon – but so glad they keep on delivering excellent tunes!
Lonely as You Are – Charles Bradley
Charles recorded this at the end of his life shortly after being diagnosed with stomach cancer – it’s so emotional and so very, very beautiful!
Lauren (Track 2) – Prince Daddy & the Hyena
This is how you do pop punk! This month with plenty of competition this is the best of the genre!
I Made You a Card – Karen Meat
Is this indie surf pop? I don’t really know, but I do know that this is an amazing tune!

- A tune that uses an odd time signature very effectively.
- A tune that makes the title sequence of a TV-series really sing.
- A tune that is so simple a child could have written it.
- A tune that both you and your parents like.
