The Hold Steady and Frank Sinatra

In the past month, added playlists highlighting great, but strikingly different, musical traditions. For indie kids and the businesses that serve them, we’re bolstering our selection with a Guitar-Driven Indie Rock Playlist. For their parents and grand-parents, we’ve also released a phenomenal collection of traditional pop and vocal jazz in our Crooner Classics playlist.

The Crooner Classics playlist stretches from the dawn of the microphone through the mid-1950s. It features artists like Frank Sinata, Tony Bennet, and Dean Martin. Because this is such a great musical tradition, this is one of our deepest stations - you can listen to it for days without hearing the same song twice. For an even broader range, the Crooner Classics playlist would be a great fit with our Motown and Memories station or our Best of the 60s station in a mix playlist.

Swinging far to the other side of the musical timeline, the Guitar-Driven Indie Rock playlist features both classic indie-rock anthems from the ‘00s and cutting-edge tracks by bands like Rubblebucket and The Hold Steady. This playlist is perfect for the skinny-jean and PBR crowd, but it is still brand-friendly and safe for any business.

As grows, we are excited to continue adding playlists that both widen’s musical breadth and dive deeper in exciting niches. If either Classic Crooners or Guitar-Driven Indie Rock could be a fit for your business, we encourage you to give these playlists a try.
