Celebrity Picks: Cults' Brian Oblivion
by Stephanie Benson | November 13, 2013
Guitarist Brian Oblivion of indie pop duo Cults has great taste. Evident from the fuzzy pop sound of his band's two albums -- a self-titled 2011 release and the new Static -- he's certainly got a soft spot for retro bubblegum pop, so it's no surprise that on this exclusive playlist he made just for us, artists like The Shangri-Las ("I Can Never Go Home Anymore"), The Jackson 5 ("It's Your Thing") and Lesley Gore ("You Don't Own Me") are well represented. But Oblivion's playlist ventures well beyond sugary nostalgia, too, with great cuts from Primal Scream, Fiona Apple, Tom Waits, J Dilla and Brian Eno, and newer tracks from Spiritualized, Chief Keef and Kanye West. An awesome mix that's yours to enjoy. Thanks, Brian!
