Stream Our Store Playlist: The Greatest Hits


We feel the same way about these artists as we do about our favorite jeans—we’ll never take ’em out of rotation.

From the French chanteuses whose style we love (ahem, Françoise Hardy) to the rockers who embody that rebellious streak we’ll always have (shout-out to The Stones) to a witty Aussie newcomer (Courtney Barnett, that’s you), the artists on our newest playlist all have a timeless sound, regardless of how long they’ve been around. We liken them to Skinny Skinny Jeans or The Transport Tote (aka our greatest hits, in our humble opinion).
