Spring Music Recommendations

Pete Springer/OPB

Stuck in a music rut? We’re here to help.

OPBMusic‘s Jeremy Peterson and The Oregonian‘s Ryan White will join us to play their picks for the best songs of the spring. We’ll hear tracks for rainy days, 80 degree weather, and whatever else the northwest brings us this time of year.


Here’s a list of the songs we played on the show:

  • Bombino: “Azamane Tiliade” 
  • Houndstooth: “Francis” 
  • Jason Isbell: “Travelling Alone” 
  • Radiation City: “Foreign Bodies” 
  • JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound: “Rouse Yourself” 
  • Bibio: “A Tout a L’Heure” 
  • Nick Jaina: “Don’t Come to Me” 
  • Pure Bathing Culture: “Pendulum” 
  • Eleanor Friedberger: “Stare at the Sun” 
  • Mavis Staples: “Can You Get to That?” (Funkadelic cover) 
  • Funkadelic: “Can You Get to That?”

What’s topping your most-played list? What are you anticipating in the next month or two?
