[tweetmeme source=”bucentral” only_single=false]But not actually.

I don’t know if any of you use this app, but if you don’t and you like music, you should definitely get it ASAP. Songza is an app that’s actually exactly like Pandora, except it matches the time and day to different scenarios you might be in at the moment, ie. working out, studying, hanging out with friends, partying, etc. and then it gives you playlists that have music that’s perfect for the moment. You can also search different genres if you’re not feeling any of the options Songza is giving you, so don’t worry. 🙂 But anyways, I was browsing through the scenarios the app gave me one day and I decided to listen to the playlist Mainstream Indie, and I loved it so much and it gave me a whole new array of artists to listen to. I personally suggest ALL of the songs, however I decided to share a few of my favorites. The playlist features Vampire Weekend, Passion Pit, Arcade Fire, Lykke Li, and many other similar artists. The songs I chose to share with you all today are Airplanes, Lisztomania, Rill Rill, Disparate Youth, and because I really love this song, I’m adding it last minute, Lonely Boy.

Airplanes // Local Natives

Lisztomania // Phoenix

Rill Rill // Sleigh Bells

Disparate Youth // Santigold

Lonely Boy // The Black Keys

I don’t really know how to describe any of these songs, although they’re great for basically whatever you’re doing, whether you’re taking a nap (like I always am), hanging out with friends, or studying, and if you like Vampire Weekend, Lykke Li, Regina Spektor, MGMT, The Ting Tings, Bon Iver, Miike Snow, Grizzly Bear, etc. then I definitely recommend these five artists and the rest of the Mainstream Indie playlist on Songza–and even if you don’t, the app has such a huge variety of music, it’s great for anyone!

Enjoy! 🙂

Hi! I'm a freshman at BU and I'm in CAS studying biology. I like pretty much any type of music, with the exception of heavy metal and country. I love watching horror movies, my favorite flowers are white lilies, and if I could be any animal, I'd be a cat.
