Playlist: Living With Lions – Driving Music

Living With Lions release their new album Island next week and to celebrate we caught up with frontman Chase Brenneman to get a playlist on “Songs you’ll definitely hear while we’re driving at night, whether it be in the van or in the car”

SAVES THE DAY – SHOULDER TO THE WHEEL

 

 

One of my all-time favourite songs ever.  It’s really fun and hooky and it’s kind of about driving so it kind of fits the theme.  This is more of a high energy, party style late night drive song

 

 

 

AMERICAN FOOTBALL – NEVER MEANT

 

 

This, again, is another one of my all-time favourites.  It’s mellow and nice to listen to.  I remember when I was 16 my friend Graham would get to borrow his grandparents old Buick and we’d just cruise around the coast, where we grew up, listening to this song and smoking cigarettes

 

 

 

THE PROMISE RING – RED AND BLUE JEANS

 

 

After I graduated high school I moved to Vancouver to try to find some people to play music with (that eventually became LWL).  My first job was working at my friends’ parent’s furniture store in the warehouse.  It was actually pretty sick, almost everyone that worked there played in bands and toured so there was a lot in common with most people.  A friend I worked in the warehouse with, Brad, introduced me to soooo many bands I never knew about.  The first time I heard The Promise Ring – Nothing Feels Good, I knew it was going to be a favourite record.  Red and Blue Jeans is my favourite song from this particular album and a favourite of mine to spin while driving the van at night

 

 

 

THE GET UP KIDS – SYMPATHY

 

 

This is a song off one of the Get Up Kids later albums ‘The Guilt Show’.  It’s not my favourite Get Up Kids record but this song is always good for a sing along.  We used to listen to this record all the time on night drives in my old band (with our old singer Matt Postal).  Super catchy

 

 

 

JAWBREAKER – ACCIDENT PRONE

 

 

I could have picked any song off Dear You, but this is THE jam.  This whole record is another one that is so perfect for late night driving. Jawbreaker and especially this record was another one that my friend Brad introduced me to

 

 

 

THE WEAKERTHANS – NIGHT WINDOWS

 

 

Gotta throw some Canadian content into this list.  The Weakethans are a band I miss so much.  There a lot of music we don’t really agree on when we drive in the van but if we’re setting up for a long night haul in the van putting on the Weakerthans tends to please everyone.  Night windows is my fav song off this record.  John K’s lyrics are super poetic and amazing. It’s like listening to someone sing a story.
