Playlist: Indie Love Songs Slow Vol. 1


I got to thinking the other day: what are the best indie love songs? I ended up making a big list and had to split it into three playlists. This is the first one, fourteen slow indie love songs. NOT to be confused with makeout jams, dear reader–that’s a different playlist.

  1. Next Train by Miracle Fortress
  2. Take Care by Beach House
  3. Got o Bed by Quiet Countries
  4. Primetime by Janelle Monaé feat. Miguel

  9. Wedding Song (Acoustic) by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
  10. Somebody to Love by Valerie June

Playlist: by water & by land

When people ask me why I still have such hope and energy after all these years, I always say: Because I travel. Taking to the road–by which I mean letting the road take you–changed who I thought I was. The road is messy in the way that real life is messy. It leads us out of denial and into reality, out of theory and into practice, out of caution and into action, out of statistics and into stories–in short, out of our heads and into our hearts.
