We asked Nathan Barnatt to provide the playlist for August - not only does he have sweet dance moves, he also has great taste in music! Listen to it here!
He also was kind enough to give us a quick explanation as to why he chose each song. Now crank up the volume and enjoy the end of the summer!
Joyce Manor- Constant Headache
This band is awesome live. I don't go to too many shows nowadays but when I do it's usually to see them.
Chvrches - The Mother We Share
This band is definitely the "cool" band to like now. Which I would think would turn me off but it doesn't cause they're too good. This song is addictive.
Dead Man's Bones - My Body's a Zombie for You
This band consists of Ryan Gosling and a children's choir.
In my experience listening to bands with actor's in them usually aren't that good. But it's Ryan Gosling. He can't do wrong. And he doesn't here. Listen to this!
Yelle - S'éteint le soleil
Yelle is probably my favorite band in the world. And I have no idea what she is saying. I've done a couple of music videos for them and I've seen them in the US and Paris. They put on an AWESOME show! The songs are so catchy and Julie has so much energy on stage that you can't help but dance like a maniac.
Lemuria - Wise People
My friend Paul B. Cummings has directed a few videos for these guys. I've hung out with them a few times. Cool people and good music.
Lykke Li - Until We Bleed
Not much to say about her. She's Swedish, got an original sound and easy to get a crush on.
Ellie Goulding - Anything Could Happen
I think she's on the radio and stuff. And if so she should deserves it. This song is awesome!!
The Orwells - Lays at Rest
These kids are like 15 and 16! Jeez! When I was 15 I didn't even know what a guitar was let alone know how to play one and cause enjoyable sounds to come out of it.
Bat For Lashes - Daniel
I LOVE this song! And have a huge crush on her. Listen to Bat For Lashes! She's like today's Kate Bush.
Gang Starr - Full Clip
I heard Gang Starr and this song in like 1999 and it was the first time I really liked a rap song. It totally changed my musical spectrum and tastes. Thanks Gang Starr.
Kaskade - Turn It Down (Le Castle Vania Remix)
This is the one song that gets me the most pumped up and excited over any other song out there! It's one of those songs that makes you feel like you could run a thousand miles an hour!
Night Riots - Spiders
I found out about these guys through Macbeth's Instagram. I am so happy I did. They're one of my favorite bands now. They have a sort of calm sound to them. Good make out music!
