The Noise Pop Podcast
The Noise Pop Podcast is a monthly series showcasing new music discoveries and a diverse slate of guest artists from the independent music scene and beyond. Produced by Noise Pop, San Francisco’s go-to indie music, arts and film festival for over 25 years and hosted by music journalist Adrian Spinelli (Paste Magazine, SF Chronicle, etc..), we deliver engaging episodes that are always rooted in the music that we love and that we know you will too. Past guests have included: Khruangbin, Thao Nguyen, Quantic, Wye Oak, Helado Negro, Speedy Ortiz, Rexx Life Raj, Shigeto, Låpsley, Thievery Corporation and more.

We've all thought about this - what to play during that certain time with your loved one (or the one you just met) to set the mood? The right music can really make a good intimate moment better; and a bad music can end that moment altogether. So from the soft and sweet to hardcore, we've put together a list of some indie tracks to start your evening, or afternoon, or first thing in the morning off right; no matter what kind of music you're into.
