Weekend Playlist: I Know Where The Summer Goes

On the one hand, summer holidays are awesome. On the other, Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of the season. So while we're stoked to have Monday off, we're not so excited about the prospect of colder days and wearing more layers. It's with that in mind that we made this Summer Bummer mix,…

Weekend Playlist — Cover Up! The Best Cover Songs & Their Original Recordings

A couple of weeks ago, we started talking about what version of the Rolling Stones' song "Wild Horses" was our respective fave. Ami is partial to the recent "Voice" contestant cover, while I really love The Sundays version. I decided…

Weekend Playlist: An Eclectic Mother’s Day Mix

Planning a Mother's Day get-together? Maybe a formal brunch (if you're still searching for recipes, we've got you covered) or a low-key hangout at your parent's house? However you're celebrating this weekend, you're gonna need some tunes. Preferably some overtly mother-themed songs that span every genre from country to pop to rap. That'…

Weekend Playlist: The Frisky’s Ultimate Road Trip Mix

To cap off our Wanderlust content, what could be more fitting than a road trip playlist? Besides a car, gas money, and comfy pants, there's really nothing more integral to a road trip's success than a good selection of music. On our recent drive from Oregon to Tennessee, my…

Weekend Playlist: Kiss Off And Go Away

The Violent Femmes said it best: "You can just kiss off into the air." There's something awesome about a snarky, diss song. For the sake of brevity, I've limited this mix to mostly diss songs of the "kiss off" variety (a separate mix of the best artist-to-artist diss tracks will be forthcoming), directed at ex-lovers,…

Weekend Playlist: Girl Group Greatness

Happy Friday! We're stoked because the new movie "The Sapphires," based on the real life story of the first aboriginal girl group in Australia, is finally in theaters. Jessica is stoked because it stars her Number One Dude Crush Chris O'Dowd, but the rest of us are just excited for the music. I…

Weekend Playlist: Enchanté, Mon Cherie…

Awkward backstory: I was making this playlist and asked a bunch of friends to suggest their favorite "sexy vocalists". This is a weird category, of course, because it's not necessarily about a song being about sex, per se; it's about vocalists who just sound super sexy, with voices full of aching and longing (or whatever).

Weekend Playlist: Hibernation Time

It's so balls cold out there's really nothing you can do but cocoon yourself in a warm place and wait for spring. Here's a playlist to listen to while you're hibernating from the elements. These tunes are moody and ambient, perfect for the forced introspection of the dog days of winter. Recommended listening: with a…

Weekend Playlist: Hang The DJ

For much of the mid-2000s I had a side gig playing records. I wouldn't necessarily call myself a DJ, in that I can't scratch or really beat match, but some friends and I had a lot of fun DJ-ing a regular weekly party for a while. It was in Philly at a club that flaunted…

Weekend Playlist: Dreamy, Dreamy Fall Days

This time of year makes me seriously sleepy, what with the sun going down in the middle of the afternoon and everything. That's why I've put together a mix that reflects the quiet, lazy vibe of the weekend. And because we imagine you, like us, are going to spend at least part of the next…

Saturday Playlist: Chill Out, Dude

You need some new music? Me too! I'd love to hear about what you're listening to in the comments. But in the meantime, I'd like to share with you an oldie but goodie mix I made, of mellow-ish chillwave-y songs. Maybe you like? Listen up, after the jump!
