Playlist: Brunchtastic

Hold onto your eggs, we’re getting ready for Autostraddle’s International Brunch Weekend 8/23-24! Find a brunch meetup in your city or create your own by heading over to our events page. You can also load up on all things brunch by watching this space. From playlists to recommendations to personal essays, we’re writing all about the brunch experience. Get excited! BRUNCH.

Goodness, it’s brunch week. Audrey, Kaitlyn, Robin, Lydia and I teamed up to make you a brunch-length playlist to fulfill your wildest dreams. We’ve got a wide spectrum of brunch music here, from Simon and Garfunkel to STRFKR to M.I.A. to the Mountain Goats. It’s 2.5 hours of tunes, because we know how long brunch takes. This should cover your journey, from sweet to savory and back again.

Someday I will make this for you.

  1. This playlist is so amazing! Rilo Kiley, The Mountain Goats, MIA, The Tallest Man on Earth, Frank Ocean, Tune-Yards, CCR, Talking Heads- this has so many of my favorite artists!

    Plus, Chance the Rapper’s Arthur theme song cover is one of my current favorite things!

  2. since I’ve only heard of like 3 of these songs bc yo no se. I’m going to listen to each one right now. also, what’s the official name of an egg cooked inside the hole in a piece of bread?

  3. I think we should all make an egg inside of a piece of toast on the weekend to make the distance not so bad.
