Monday Mixer

Playlists can hold many meanings and purposes. A playlist for walking to class, for parties, for happy days and for sad days. This playlist is for those frustrated days where you need some music to back up your feelings.

  1. The River – Blues Saraceno
    1. While not being totally alternative in nature, this song upholds a rough title and sound.
  2. Little Lion Man – Mumford and Sons
    1. Of a similar sound, Mumford and Sons presents a song that plays off a mirrored angst to “The River” by Blues Saraceno
  3. Bad Mood – The Vaccines
    1. “Bad Mood” by The Vaccines fits this playlist’s purpose perfectly. Using The Vaccines’ gruff, chaotic sound, a bad mood can be easily justified with this song.
  4. Lost in the Light – Bahamas
    1. Coming down from a terrible mood is like the calm after a storm. This peace is just as important as the storm before, “Lost in the Light” is a good outlet for this feeling.
  5. Down on the Bottom – The New Basement Tapes
    1. “Down on the Bottom” is angsty, but not in your face about it. The New Basement Tapes takes a whole new approach to covers and providing a new sound.
  6. The Night We Met – Lord Huron
    1. Lastly, “The Night We Met” by Lord Huron is a perfect way to end a hectic day or feeling.


About Maggie Knoll

If Maggie isn't writing about music or talking about music, she's probably dead. Just kidding. In her spare time, Maggie collects albums, lint rolls dog hair off of all of her belongings or recreates the one SNL sketch where Kristen Wiig has tiny plastic doll hands. Don't worry, she can make it weirder!
