Ahh, Spring. Is there any other season that offers such an upswing in mood, such sweet relief, such good vibes? As we gladly shove our winter coats into the far recesses of our closets and embrace the sunshine, it seems like our favorite bands have begun to do the same with their music. Our spring playlist is full of buoyant rhythms, bright synths, and songs that trade gloom for glam. From the triumphant return of Yeah Yeah Yeahs to the rhymes of the most promising young rapper in years, we've got tracks that celebrate good vibes. Even the darkest additions have a vaguely tropical lean to them (we're looking at you, The Knife).
