Look we don’t mean to get cute with y’all, but for the past few month we’ve been positioning these V:Music playlists as not only a carefully curated mix but also a proper weekend jumpoff. And now here we are on this Friday kicking this week’s edition with a song called “The Weekend.” This is some Michael-Rappaport-for-Cumberland-Farms type of in-your-face promotion.
But the tropical new dance-pop track from This Diamond Life and Karen Harding is the perfect way to jump into our weekend. From there we travel the alt-pop seas making stops at the ports of Lorde, Litany (featured in that image up top), RAC + St. Lucia, Cage The Elephant, Kodaline, Lights, Flosstradamus + Cara Salimando, and more before swinging through a veritable murderer’s row of ALL CAPS bands and artists like SWIMS, AREA21, VÉRITÉ, HAIM, and RKCB.
There’s a kaleidoscope of sound over these 21 tracks, so nevermind how we present it.
