Ok I have to be honest, I've been terrible with new music lately. If I'm not listening to average 'indie apartment party' mixes from Songza then I'm playing Patsy Cline on our acquired record player (insert 'hipster' judgement here). It's been a good while since I've listened to an album from start to finish, and I haven't devoted time to new bands, because now there are so. Many. Options. Anyone else feel me on this?

That being said, I thought it was about time I put up a new 'mix-tape' for Lolita readers. Some upbeat jams to get excited for Spring: a random mix of 90s rap, classic rock and newer stuff (because that's how I roll). What apps do you use for listening to music? I'd love to know - and if there's any new artists I need to check out, I would love recommendations!
