The guys of Mainland picked their fave tunes and built a playlist to get us in the groove for Thursday’s show. Listen to the playlist if you want to get to know them a little better ahead of the show!
Bear Hands – “2AM”: Just saw the video for this track from the local Brooklyn favorites. It’s sublime nostalgia about getting old and your world around you changing so fast.

The Arcs – “Put A Flower in Your Pocket”: We listened to an interview on the “Song Exploder” podcast with Dan Auerbach about the song being a drug dealer’s memoirs and thought it was cool. We loved knowing the song was recorded completely live on broken organs etc.

 

 

DMA’s – “Delete”: Rarely do you come across a band like DMA’s searching not for the newest style but to strip back and focus on great songwriting. This song is beautiful in its lyrics and passion.

Melanie Martinez – “Dollhouse”: We just toured with this girl for two weeks.
She’s amazing. Listen to her whole album.

DREAMERS – “Drugs”: Our brothers in rock and roll just put out this jam. It’s always been a fav from their set, and is about to take over the radio waves. Get ready.

Tom Odell – “Wrong Crowd”: He’s largely unknown in America. But he went more in an electronic vein recently and the results are inspiring.

Kanye West – “No More Parties In LA”: Simply a banger.

Mike Snow – “Genghis Khan”: These are three of the most talented people in the music biz. Andrew Wyatt has such a stellar voice and this song is timeless in writing and production.

Get tickets to the show right here and don’t miss the chance to hang out with a night full of great music! Check out the interview with front man Jordan Topf here.
