In our Current Mood series, we ask some of our favourite artists to curate a playlist according to a specific theme or mood of their choice. For Current Mood #024, Chicago indie rock musician Lala Lala makes a playlist of songs that she’d pick to soundtrack a movie. Listen to past Current Mood playlists here.
The Lamb, the sophomore record by Chicago artist Lillie West, aka Lala Lala, is one of the year’s most visceral, distinctive rock records. The hazy, 12-song record floats from heartbroken indie through Molly Nilsson-style twilight pop through punk-tinted missives; it’s an album that the name Lala Lala belies the complexity of.
Ahead of going out on tour with fellow Chicagoans Whitney and Twin Peaks, West has shared a CURRENT MOOD playlist with The FADER featuring songs she would choose to soundtrack a movie. “These are the songs that would be on one of my movie soundtracks,” West tells The FADER via email. “Listen to while riding a bike at night. Wear a helmet.” Listen to Movie Soundtrack above, and find Lala Lala’s tour dates below.
