Looking to discover some new tunes while you’re stuck at home? The Bluebird staff has you covered! Each weekend, we’ll be putting out a new quarantunes playlist curated by one of our staff members. Today’s playlist is brought to you one of The Bluebird Cafe’s bartenders, Todd Joseph. Find out what he’s listening to while preparing the bar for shows, making drinks, and more!
Really the perfect capture of the emotion of loss. It has melody, angst, confusion, and to me, seems to be a very honest effort.
“Desire” (Explicit Word Warning)
Probably one of the most sensual songs I have heard, very powerful in its approach. Someone said it was the females answer to the Nine Inch Nails song “Closer.”
Third Eye Blind
I miss the 90’s! Melody Melody Melody and dark lyrics thrown into a candy wrapper. Every instrument is a hook.
The Gaslight Anthem
All time favorite band. This was the first song I ever heard from them and I was hooked ever since. “And in this unstable arena, What’s left or become of my America” – pretty sure these words were never more apt than they are right now.
She is great. I am not entirely a country guy, but sometimes you just feel when people mean it and that is all anyone needs to do to win me over.
This is a sexy and vibey track that is pretty dark, but captures an introspective moment.
This dude sings his can off and this song in particular has nothing to dress up the vocals and he still delivers an epic display.
One of those real deal kind of guys. I tend to listen to people who have been in deep waters and are not afraid to peel back the layers and put it into a song.
Sometimes people leave and sometimes you make up the narrative on how things will go.
Just a darling song and tells a familiar story in a different way.
This song puts me right in a convertible in downtown Los Angeles and I can only feel the air, see the lights and hear this.
When I am south, I find the guys who make up the soundtrack to it.
When I’m in New York, I find the guys who make the soundtrack to it haha. This band, along with The Killers and The Gaslight Anthem, are the epitome of cool.
Kid can sing, write and play. Someday the U.S will figure this one out.
