A heavy influence from across the atlantic this week with a smattering of New York, California, and Maritime representing the Midwest. Haim’s “Don’t Save Me” is a great pop track reminiscent of 80’s girl pop rock. Fans of The Dum Dum Girls and Best Coast will dig them. This week’s throwback has to be LCD Sound System’s “I Can Change” especially after the great synchronization slot on HBO’s GIRLS. Rounding out the end of this mix is “Black Balloons” off the new Local Natives record released this week which is just an aurally dreamy record. I hope y'all enjoy this mix as much as I do.

  • Panic Dots: Why is the album titled Buildings?
  • Owen Strathern: Its Buildings because it feels like things have to build up and get so bad before anyone one does anything about it, people have a hard time confronting problems and seem content to sit with them until it gets to the stage where its so bad that they can’t anymore. If people were more honest with themselves I think they could be happier.
