Are you a fan of music and live in or near Chicago? Then maybe the Pitchfork Music Festival is for you! The Union Park festival has been slowly updating its set-list of acts that are scheduled to perform over the three-day weekend from July 20-22 — and so far so good! Friday features Tame Impala, Syd, and Courtney Barnett among others, so you can definitely catch me there on that day.
In other music news, there hasn’t been many huge releases over the last few weeks, but March looks good going forward. And still, even with a lesser amount of new singles and albums, Jake and I have scrounged together 10 recent tracks that we feel good about. On the playlist this week, you’ll find Superorganism, Twin Shadow, and Soccer Mommy, as well as 17 others.
Also, while you’re here and we’re talking about music, please be sure to watch this outstanding music video that Apple produced with director Spike Jonze, which debuts Anderson Paak’s groovy single, “‘Til It’s Over.”
