You probably thought today would be a regular ol’ Tuesday, but actually it’s Mini Coachella at Your Desk Day! We’ll just be here, listening to some music from a handful of artists who happen to be attractive, female, and on the Coachella lineup. You can wear whatever you want. Bonus streaming playlist when you get to the bottom! That’s what she said?
Mini Coachella: All the Pretty Girls
British folk-rock. Sad lyrics. Sounds like early evening in the winter, on a porch in the woods; whiskey.
Latest: A Creature I Don’t Know
Listen to Laura Marling in concert at NPR.
They had you at Carrie Brownstein. Sounds like dancing on your bed in your underwear with the curtains open.
Latest: Wild Flag
Listen to Wild Flag in concert at NPR.
More folk-rock, American. Sounds like driving out of town on Saturday morning.
Latest: Covered Up With Flowers
You have to go beyond “Fade Into You.”
First Aid Kit
Swedish alt-country. Sounds like your heart walked out of your chest to find itself.
Latest album: The Lion’s Roar
Listen to The Lion’s Roar streaming at NPR.
Kinda rock, kinda country. Your mom knows her from the Good Morning America theme song. Sounds like dusty summers in cut-offs; Jack and Coke.
Latest: Grace Potter & The Nocturnals
Canadian electropop! You’re dancing! She’s dancing! We’re all dancing now!
Soul soul soul. Singin’ about life and love, with soul. Sounds like falling asleep in a canoe; drinking wine alone.
Cerebral, happy, dark, weird. I think everyone loves St. Vincent except me.
Latest: Strange Mercy
Listen to St. Vincent in concert at NPR.
American indie-pop (technically there’s just one girl in this ensemble, but still). You’re in a parade on your way to a party where they’ll serve fizzy lemonade in polka dotted glasses and the sun will never set.
Latest: In Light
Am I missing anyone amazing? Tell us about your favorites in the comments!
ETA: The title of this post is in no way meant to imply that artists who weren’t included are not “pretty,” ok? I’m just really bad at titles. Also pizza — I can’t make a decent homemade pizza to save my life, so.
