Sweetbob’s Hipster Music Playlist: Best of 2016

americas-white-boy-best-of-2016-sweetbobs-hipster-music-playlist-funny-et-weirdWe post a hipster music playlist (almost) every month here on America’s White Boy. We looked through all of this year’s playlists and picked the best 20 tracks.

There was something we noticed while compiling this list. It was a strong year for female vocalists. Warpaint, eskimeaux, Phantogram and Sleigh Bells all put out some great music. I also need to give props to the guys, since Kishi Bashi and Grouplove released two of the best albums of the year. I actually had to put two Grouplove tracks on this playlist.

I always keep an ear out for new music. I love discovering new bands/songs, it’s a habit from my days as a music journalist. Even though this is mostly a sports blog, I still add quite a bit of music and pop culture content. Keep sending me tracks via email or Twitter.

We created a specific Spotify playlist for our Best of 2016 list. Follow, listen and enjoy! Continue reading

Sweetbob’s Hipster Music Playlist: May 2016

weird odd hipster america's white boy music playlist may 2016I apologize that it has been a few months since I posted a Hipster Music Playlist. I’ve been finding a lot of good music lately, but not quite enough to put out a list of 15 to 20 songs every month. I hope to keep churning these out every month from now on.

The 20 Best Emo Songs of All-Time

JImmy Eat World Jim Adkins best emo songs of all-timeWe’ve all either liked a girl/boy that didn’t like us back or were dumped in a brutal fashion. Emo music is needed during those times. Our grandparents had sad Elvis songs, our parents had The Cure and we had our generation of sappy songs, emo.

I could have easily added bands like The Smiths, The Cure and Joy Division to this list, but I tried to put the focus narrowly to the mid-90’s to mid-00’s range. I feel like that is the time frame in which true nationwide emo music originated and sort of died.

Emo music came into form when the second-wave of punk hit America. It kind of started about the same time. Emo hit the D.C. area in the mid-80’s, but didn’t hit everywhere until Sunny Day Real Estate and Jawbreaker became popular with college kids.

We list the best 20 emo rock songs of all-time by 20 different bands…we also post YouTube videos of every song on the list.
