AbsolutePlaylist: "Spring Cleaning"

Posted by: Jake Jenkins (03/21/14)
We're back this week with another AbsolutePlaylist, a 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. For today's playlist, I handpicked a batch of songs from some of my favorite springtime albums, new and old, for a playlist to soundtrack this year's spring season. You can check out a Spotify link in the replies.

Every time the season changes, I feel compelled to make a new playlist full of albums that will dominate my speakers for the months to follow. This week's AbsolutePlaylist features a collection of songs from a handful of albums that made it onto my springtime playlist for this year. It's an eclectic bunch, featuring mostly hip-hop tracks, but there's also some metal, some alt-rock, and some electronic tossed in for good measure. These are songs that will sound good when the sun is out and you can drive around with your windows down, but they'll also be fitting for those times in the spring when winter dares to show its face again (if you're in the midwest like me, you know what I'm talking about). Anyway, put on your sunglasses or your jacket (or both) and enjoy the songs that will be defining Spring 2014 for me.

I listened a bit during my drive and may use it again to actually clean this weekend, haha. I may do one of my own later too.

I saw YG twice in one night a few weeks back. I heard "YG FOUR-HUNNED!!!" about 100 times that night.

actually pretty well, but i had the YG song before the gil scott song originally but then i accidentally deleted the playlist (whoops) and had to re do it and ended up putting it in the wrong spot. but i think it still works.

Same! It's probably one of my favorites of all time. It was the first I had heard from the band, in an hold Halo video. Coincidentally, the video had Motion City Soundtrack's "Perfect Teeth" and "Dark Blue" by Jack's Mannequin.

That video basically changed my entire musical outlook.
