Looking for a playlist to listen to in preparation for Saturday of Pitchfork? We have it just for you! This playlist has one track from each artist performing and a bit about my personal favorites 🙂 take a read and a listen!

Horsegirl, “Ballroom Dance Scene”

Horsegirl is going to be an epic set. The punk/noise rock band hails from Chicago, their songs are wicked cool. The production of each track is pristine, fitting their sound perfectly. The echoing 

Divino Niño, “Quiero”

Divino Niño played at the Terrace on Thursday night and it's exciting that they are on their way to play Pitchfork next. Their music is groovy; it combines bass lines with acoustic guitars and is paired beautifully with the vocals, guiding the listener through the record. 

Faye Webster, “I Know I'm Funny haha”

I LOVE Faye Webster's most recent release, I Know I'm Funny haha. It's witty and quick, each song either a ballad or a little ditty about something in Webster's life. This record was constant for months and I used to watch her KEXP from home video on repeat. I can't wait to sway in the  crowd on Saturday. 

Jamila Woods, “Winona” featuring Miloe and Vagabon

I started listening to Jamila Woods when I was in high school and since then her sound has grown exponentially. Her artistry is unparalleled and her new work is ear catching. Miloe is a Minneapolis based band and recently played at Shannon Hall in Madison. Their song “Winona” is a great end of summer jam. 

St. Vinent, “Sad But True”

The headliner for Saturday is the lovely St. Vincent. “Sad But True” is a post-rock track that amplifies St. Vincent's endearing voice. Although I may not be super familiar with her discography this song is the perfect angsty listen.
