V:Music Playlist 06.23.17: Litany, This Diamond Life, Lights, RAC, SWIMS, HAIM, Ashe, Parcels, youth and more

Look we don't mean to get cute with y'all, but for the past few month we've been positioning these V:Music playlists as not only a carefully curated mix but also a proper weekend jumpoff. And now here we are on this Friday kicking this week's edition with a song called "The Weekend." This is some Michael-Rappaport-for-Cumberland-Farms type of in-your-face promotion.

But the tropical new dance-pop track from This Diamond Life and Karen Harding is the perfect way to jump into our weekend. From there we travel the alt-pop seas making stops at the ports of Lorde, Litany (featured in that image up top), RAC + St. Lucia, Cage The Elephant, Kodaline, Lights, Flosstradamus + Cara Salimando, and more before swinging through a veritable murderer's row of ALL CAPS bands and artists like SWIMS, AREA21, VÉRITÉ, HAIM, and RKCB.

There's a kaleidoscope of sound over these 21 tracks, so nevermind how we present it.

Just push play. This is V:Music. Made for you.
