My definition of Spring: Who gives a shit? It's like summer but not even as good.
of Montreal - Springtime is the Season
Springtime is the season, ladies and gentlemen, and what better way of saying than through some old school lo-fi of Montreal, that'll never fail to put a smile on your face.
Tears For Fears - Sowing The Seeds Of Love
"Anything is possible" indeed. A feel good song that makes you just wanna jump up out of hibernation and be like "fuck yeah! It's springtime!" Maybe.
Jónsi & Alex - All The Big Trees
You can almost track Jónsi's musical career through seasons; back in the old days of Von, ( ) and the weird baby album whose name I cannot pronounce, it was winter; the music was dark and cold. Jónsi's new album sounds like summer itself, with Jónsi himself describing it as "playful" and "colourful". This leaves Jónsi and Alex wonderfully in the middle, with this beautiful ambient album that could only be spring.
Antony and the Johnsons - Daylight and the Sun
"I cry for daylight and the sun" croons Antony as the raw piano breaks through that thick cloud to show sunshine for the first time this year. Or something like that.
Stuart Murdoch - Another Saturday
Based on the melody from an old folk song, Another Saturday is that lazy song for when you really can't be arsed to go outside, cos the sun just ain't shinin' yet.
Converge - Jane Doe
Nothing says spring like the wailing of "I want out" between frantic screams and punk guitars.
