AbsolutePlaylist: "Shaking off the Winter Blues"

Posted by - 12:39 PM on 04/04/14
Welcome back to AbsolutePlaylist, a new feature that will bring you a playlist each Friday from one of our staff members or a special guest to ring your weekend in the right way. This week I've put together some songs designed to help you shake off any lingering traces of the winter blues you might have, because hopefully by now the weather is warming up where you are. And if it's not, I'm very sorry...maybe try pulling up YouTube videos of daffodils blossoming and birds chirping? I dunno. Either way, there are Rdio and Spotify playlists for your enjoyment in the replies.

It has never come up?

When I used to work at Insound (circa 2005-2006), we listened to Meadowlands quite often. And the infatuation started. I don't listen to them frequently, but when I do, whew, it's something else.

The Meadowlands is one of my favorite records ever haha. Supposedly they've got a new record almost ready for mastering as of a few months ago when I bugged them on twitter lol...but who knows with them. They swear it's really coming out this year though.

I like that record a lot, but it's kind of one of those albums where the highlights are so perfect that they actually make it harder for me to enjoy the rest of the record as much. Or in other words, I listen to stuff like "Helplessness Blues," "Grown Ocean," and "The Shrine/An Argument" all the time, but don't play the whole record quite as frequently.

Eh I mean yeah the three you mentioned are on another level but I adore "Montezuma," "Sim Sala Bim," "Someone You'd Admire" and "Bedouin Dress" too, and all the others are very very good as well imo. But I am a fanboy haha...that record's top five of the decade so far for me for sure

I love "Montezuma" and "Someone You'd Admire" as well. On the whole though, I probably end up preferring the first record. Both are quite good.

And THAT'S high praise, haha. What are your top five of the decade? I'm sure The Monitor and Bon Iver are both there. Japandroids? Vampire Weekend? I want to know how many I can guess.
