Spring has finally (!) sprung in New York City so we put together a mixtape to help get you in the mood. Our springtime mix of 60’s French Yé-yé and 21st century dreampop is for hazy afternoons spent curled under the cherry blossom trees, for sharing baskets of brie and wine with friends in the park, and for relishing in the gentleness of the mid-April air.
A playlist for all 365 days of International Women’s Day, featuring Empress Of, X-Ray Spex, Destiny’s Child, Kate Bush, and over sixty (!) more trailblazing women. Happy IWD from our sisterhood to yours.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we have a dreamy little mix of songs made for crushin’. Crush on a lover, crush on a friend, crush on a stranger, or crush on yourself to the timeless romance of Serge Gainsbourg, Karen O, Nina Simone, and Françoise Hardy. Nous t’aimons.
This dirty little mix of old favorites and new classics is perfect for late nights at your favorite dive and wicked days in the city. Pair it with a shot of whisky and a deep red lip.
A playlist by Vanessa, with deep cuts from Billie Holiday to Dirty Beaches, for those nights where you just can’t seem to stop dreaming…

Maybe it’s performance art; maybe it’s a satirical social critique. Maybe it’s all real. The story, the characters, the aesthetic, the sound – the world of PC Music is a puzzle that each repeat listener thinks that maybe, just maybe, they can figure out. And, love it or hate it, that’s why people keep on coming back.
