Playlist by: Nightbird

Good music takes you on a journey. The landscape is varied–sometimes unexpected, sometimes familiar, sometimes wild and vibrant, sometimes muted and soft–but the journey is always a personal one. With Nightbird, I want to bring attention to music, both old and new, that resonates with me on a personal level. The selection of these songs embraces a variety of genres and focuses on the feelings brought about when we let go and immerse ourselves in the moment.

Nightbird is at Den Of Thieves every Thursday starting at 10:00pm. The end of this playlist is where we pick up and dance into the night.
For more playlists, gigs, and live mixes (coming soon), check out and follow at  Nightbird Music.


1. Pure Bathing Culture – “Pendulum”
Let this one wash over you and softly usher you from dreamland to reality.


2. Smoke Fairies – “She Sells Sanctuary”
Spooky harmonies and solid instrumentation.  Great choice of cover, too.

3. Sun Kil Moon – “Ben’s My Friend”
Here’s Mark Kozelek in a form in which I have never seen him; very matter of fact, conversational, forthright, and musically happy.

4. Yumi Zouma – “The Brae”
Alluring, understated vibe but always pulsing forward.


5. Friends – “The Way”
Dev Hynes has been doing great work with blood orange but has also been collaborating with others along the way, this is his effort with friends, purple smoke and lace vibes at work here.


6. Touch Sensitive – “Show Me” (Patrick Baker Vocal Edit)
This takes it up a notch but only if you plan on swaying back and forth in place while thinking about how fun it was to grow up in the ’90s now that you’re over a decade removed.


7. Empire of the Sun – “I’ll Be Around”
Smooth grooves and familiar but impenetrable lyrics make this a song to repeat so much, you may not make it to the rest of the mix.


8. Sky Ferreira – “Everything Is Embarrassing” (Unknown Mortal Orchestra Remix)
Hearing UMO put trashy drums and pulsing bass to this song makes it seem new again somehow.

9. Saâda Bonaire – “You Could Be More As You Are”
Plucky bass, funky sitar, and disaffected vocals…..Balearic top 40 that never was.


10. Robotaki – “Raton Laveur: (Radio Edit)
Slow build to a sky chariot.


11. Locussolus – I Want It (Lindstrom & Prins Thomas Remix)
When the piano comes in and then the horns, it’s too much.
