Music To My Ears

Post image for Music To My Ears

Ever wonder who picks the music you hear in our stores? This is our music committee, we meet and listen to songs, and collectively decide which ones we think are a good fit for our stores! It’s one of my favorite meetings to attend :)

If you guys have any recommendations, leave a comment below!

I think Animal Collective would be a great fit, maybe the song “Brothersport”?

The Parlor Mob. They just came out with a new album titled “DOGS”. It’s available on itunes and spotify. It is REALLY worth the listen and goes perfectly with the free people vibe. You won’t regret it!

Sea Wolf is a great band with awesome songs. Two of my favorites which I think would be a great fit include: “You’re a wolf” and “Wicked blood”.
Additional bands/songs coming to mind:
Band of Skulls “Friends”
Writers Block “Young Folks”

First Aid Kit! They are a Swedish folk duo! They’re voices truly resemble the free spirited nature of Free People! A perfect fit. Voices of angels.

Bonnie -November 17, 2011, 9:27PM

Stevie Nicks — Gypsy, Violet & Blue, Gold (w/John Stewart), anything by Stevie.

Victoria -November 17, 2011, 9:56PM

The Decemberists, Fleet Foxes, Owen, Bon Iver. “Right Me Up” by State Radio (or really anything by State Radio!), “I Wished for You” by Jasmine Ash, “A Horse With No Name” by America (classic). And of course anything by Mumford & Sons… I was first exposed when I worked at the Short Hills store and “Awake My Soul” was on the CD for awhile!

Rachel -November 17, 2011, 10:15PM

The band “Best Coast” has just one album which is filled with light, summer-feel-good tracks, perfect for Free People stores. Check out the “Our Deal” music video with Chloe Moretz

Bonobo! anything from the album black sands

Shanel Shams -November 17, 2011, 11:09PM

i’m a big music buff – i love anything from folk to alternative.
**a great band i’ve found recently is this small indie band from Minnesota. They’re called “Diet Folk.” Their music is kind of slow and folky, kind of a Bon Iver and Ray Lamontagne mix. their album on itunes, “All We Need,” is great and they could use your support! personal favorites – Crave, Sativa Snow.
some others of my favorites lately have been the kooks’ most recent album “junk of the heart.” pretty much anything on that album is great. personal favorites – F**ck the World Off, Killing Me.
other recently great album: Indigo Girls’ “beauty queen sister”

Mirah & Thao are a wonderful group; they also have a somewhat recent album.

Other miscellaneous bands that I enjoy: Fruit Bats, Elephant Revival, Your Ex-Lover Is Dead – Stars.

you guys have probably heard of all of these and i should stop talking.
love you guys lots, bye.

kandyce -November 19, 2011, 12:08AM

Parlor Hawk is a really talented local band in Utah. Their album is called Hoarse and Roaring. I think their first song home would be great in your stores… well all of them really! Cheers.

cat -November 19, 2011, 11:31AM

Barton Hollow & 20 Years by The Civil Wars or Hold on by Alabama Shakes

Marion -November 22, 2011, 7:47AM

The Pleasants Earthy, organic songs, harmonies and style would be perfect for the FP store. “Streets Of Darkness” or “Cold Summer’s Night”
