Editor’s Playlist: Non-ironic

By Lindsey Gonzalez

I am a wannabe hipster. I have no fashion sense, yet I shop at Urban Outfitters in the hopes that an overpriced flannel shirt will help me look trendy. I seek out the most obscure musicians on Spotify to impress others with the largely undiscovered indie titles. And I use irony to justify my love of items not belonging to this counterculture. Despite my best efforts, I have decided that “hipsterification” does not occur through trying. This liberation has allowed me to embrace the music that before I could only appreciate in private. In order to celebrate this quasi-metamorphosis, I created a playlist of all my favorite non-ironic songs. Listeners are encouraged to dance as ridiculously and flamboyantly as possible.
