Since I don’t get the chance to listen in the car these days — my new commute is a 15-minute walk each way! — I catch up with my favorite NPR programs while cooking. Reply Michelle @ Turning Over a New Leaf June 21, 2011 at 1:55 pm My Design I professor would play NPR in class while we worked on our projects. I totally get it. Reply Baking 'n' Books June 21, 2011 at 4:51 pm What’s NPR?…;) Oye. I’m going to check out these songs! Never heard of Iver. And I want to hear that Coldplay song – love them. Although I can barely listen to their whole ‘Clocks’ CD because I listened to it over and over during a break-up – such a girl. Jenna, what do you think of AudioBooks? Reply Kristina June 22, 2011 at 11:02 am NPR = National Public Radio Reply Laura @ Backstage Pass June 22, 2011 at 7:03 pm Bon Iver (aka Justin Vernon) is fantastic! His new album was just released yesterday, it’s worth purchasing 🙂 Reply Amanda June 21, 2011 at 1:41 pm I LOVE Bon Iver!!! Reply Lisa June 21, 2011 at 1:44 pm Huge Bon Iver fan! Recently discovered them and can’t get enough. I like the Kate Nash station on Pandora. I also listen to modern tango music when cooking. Reply gia June 21, 2011 at 3:48 pm I like this suggestion! upbeat. thx. 😉 Reply Bec June 21, 2011 at 3:48 pm The new Bon Iver is fantastic!! You need to have a listen to Calgary and Perth Reply Laura @ Backstage Pass June 22, 2011 at 7:04 pm Agreed! We’ve got him for two nights in July (I work at some concert venues) and both shows sold out like right away. He’s a really talented dude! Reply R @ Learning As I Chop June 21, 2011 at 1:50 pm I am the opposite – I love total quiet in the kitchen. Reply Michelle @ Turning Over a New Leaf June 21, 2011 at 1:53 pm My favorite is definitely jazz. Rosemary Clooney, George Gershwin, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra… don’t care. It all makes me a blissful cook. That and wearing a cute apron. 😉 Reply Kristina June 21, 2011 at 1:57 pm Totally several of my fav. songs on there – love Bon Iver and Tegan and Sara. And “Ohio” by Damien Juardo is such a great track… beautiful but it makes me feel all sad and melancholy Reply Ashley @ 5ohwifey.blogspot.com/ June 21, 2011 at 2:01 pm I dont think I’ve every heard any of this songs COUGHexcept the greys cast onesCOUGH Reply Jen of My Tiny Oven June 21, 2011 at 2:04 pm I recently saw the musical Wicked, so I can’t get enough of the that soundtrack right now! Always need music in the kitchen!! Reply Taysa June 21, 2011 at 2:12 pm Anything on our record player. Edith Piaf, Lorretta Lynn, Neil Young, The Kinks, Leonard Cohen… Reply Elena @MTJW June 22, 2011 at 6:45 am Holler for the Can-Con! Reply Alexa @ Simple Eats June 21, 2011 at 2:14 pm I love listening to the James Taylor station on Pandora. Awesome to cook to! Reply Meghan @ StruggleMuffins June 21, 2011 at 2:15 pm Love Bon Iver! Any activity’s made better when put to a soundtrack 🙂 Reply @HilaryFleming June 21, 2011 at 2:17 pm Thanks for posting this…not much of a music person so this is good to give me ideas of what to add to my list. 🙂 Reply gia June 21, 2011 at 2:19 pm well, nothing, because my computer speakers are lousy. Did you add speakers to your computer?? Reply Running With Mascara June 21, 2011 at 2:26 pm I definitely don’t listen to enough music in the kitchen – I kind of forget I can! But I think it would add a whole new level of enjoyment to cooking! Reply Sara June 21, 2011 at 2:33 pm Love Bon Iver and Cat Power. I like your style. Reply Kelli H (Made in Sonoma) June 21, 2011 at 2:37 pm Most the time I don’t listen to music in the kitchen. Share pictures of your kayaks! I want to see a post on that. A day at the River. : ) Reply Adrianna from A Cozy Kitchen June 21, 2011 at 2:38 pm I’ve been listening to the new bon iver non-stop. I also am totally obsessed with podcasts like radiolab and this american life. Reply dragonfly180 June 21, 2011 at 2:41 pm love “blindsided” and will have to check out some of these other songs 🙂 Reply Erica June 21, 2011 at 2:45 pm If you like “The Story” it’s by Brandi Carlile. You should also give a listen to: “What Can I Say.” It’s another favorite of hers that was also on Grey’s Anatomy. You’ll recognize it I’m sure. 🙂 Reply Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga June 21, 2011 at 3:04 pm You KNOW you’re a true chef when you have kitchen soundtracks. Wow! I sing the ABCs and Barney showtunes. And The Wheels on the Bus. Reply Baking 'n' Books June 21, 2011 at 4:52 pm lol. Skylar? Reply Emily @ Comfortable Home Life June 21, 2011 at 3:08 pm I love Bon Iver! I usually just switch on my Pandora radio station that’s based off Mumford and Sons & Iron and Wine. I named it “Mumford and Wine” because I’m nerdy like that. 🙂 Reply Monika @ Powered by Paprika June 21, 2011 at 3:17 pm Very cool! I don’t have a kitchen soundtrack, but will look into getting one 🙂 Reply Molly @ RDexposed June 21, 2011 at 3:23 pm I always have Blind Pilot on a Pandora channel. They’ve recently told me that I’ve been listening too much though. Booooo. Reply Mel June 21, 2011 at 3:27 pm I pretty much always listen to one of four albums by an amazing band named Crooked Still. Once in a while I’ll mix it up with some NPR though 🙂 Reply Elena @MTJW June 22, 2011 at 6:57 am Thanks for the tip Mel – listening to Crooked Still now and loving it. Reply Laughter-Loving Stacy June 21, 2011 at 3:30 pm HOLY MOLY JENNA. I decided to check out Bon Iver, since he seems to be taking up most of the playlist… and I. LOVE. HIM. NICE. Reply Gina @ Running to the Kitchen June 21, 2011 at 3:37 pm I always forget to turn music on. I think of it after whatever I’m cooking or baking is inevitably in the oven or I’m cleaning up! Love Bon Iver, good stuff! Reply The Teenage Taste June 21, 2011 at 3:50 pm I never usually listen to music when I’m baking/cooking, but now I have to try it! I bet the music makes the whole process even more fun! 🙂 Reply sarah beth June 21, 2011 at 3:54 pm have you listened to Bon Iver’s new album? it rules. http://www.npr.org/2011/06/09/136855313/first-listen-bon-iver-bon-iver Reply Rebecca @ How the Cookies Crumble June 21, 2011 at 4:13 pm I too often forget to turn music on. People always comment how weird it is that I cook, clean, do everything but drive the car in silence, but I really just don’t notice or think about it half the time. I love streaming to KCRW but often just forget to turn it on. Reply Molly June 21, 2011 at 4:17 pm ah Thompson Square! My fav 🙂 I love cooking slow sunday dinners with Van Morrison. Reply Danielle June 21, 2011 at 4:41 pm love Bon Iver! Reply Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin June 21, 2011 at 4:44 pm I love Cat Power! I don’t have a kitchen playlist, but if I did she would totally be on it. Reply amy walters, aDESIGNdock June 21, 2011 at 4:58 pm Ooh…nice list 😉 Reply Kayla June 21, 2011 at 5:12 pm Oh, Bon Iver is perfect, isn’t he? He’s from my home state of Wisconsin. Good stuff comes from America’s Dairyland. 🙂 Reply Dee June 21, 2011 at 5:14 pm Fun! I love seeing and listening to other people’s playlists! It’s the best way to find new artists! Reply Jen June 21, 2011 at 5:18 pm Ahh, so excited to see so much Bon Iver love! I went to school with Justin V. and his talent was amazing even then 🙂 Reply Joelle (On A Pink Typewriter) June 21, 2011 at 5:28 pm Okay, this is going to sound ridiculously nerdy, but sometimes i listen to NPR while cooking.. i’m basically 65 yrs old and LOVE them haha. Otherwise it’s Pandora;s Vampire Weekend playlist. 🙂 Reply Lauren @ What Lauren Likes June 21, 2011 at 5:30 pm I love listening to oldies 🙂 Glenn Millet, Elvis, Sinatra. I love listening to musical soundtracks too! and fo sure makes time go faster!! Reply Lauren @ What Lauren Likes June 21, 2011 at 5:31 pm * MILLER* wow must be hungry fo some Millet haha Reply Sonia (the Mexigarian) June 21, 2011 at 5:47 pm Right now I have Marty Robbins playing on my record player. Flipping over old records are not the best thing when your hands are covered in flour and dough but I love my player. I had just switched out the BeeGees. 😀 Reply Katie @ peacebeme June 21, 2011 at 5:49 pm this post made me realize that I haven’t listened to music while cooking in a long time, or even listened to music in general except in the car. I need to do that! Reply Annie@stronghealthyfit June 21, 2011 at 6:05 pm <3 Bon Iver 🙂 Reply Julie H. of Spinach and Sprinkles June 21, 2011 at 6:07 pm Are you going to kiss me or not=AMAZING!!!!! Reply HilaryJo June 21, 2011 at 6:12 pm *nerd alert* when i listen to music while cooking/doing whatever…it is usually the epic soundtrack channel on pandora. I like to try to guess what movie it is (usually pretty easy…) Yep. My hubby loves to tease me about it 😉 Reply Erin June 21, 2011 at 6:24 pm Love Love Love Bon Iver! I totally did a double take when I saw your playlist since I’m always raving about him to my friends and non of them know what I’m talking about. You have good taste is music! 🙂 Reply Laura June 21, 2011 at 6:38 pm I’m always listening to music in the kitchen. My most common playlist is a random shuffle of Mumford & Sons, David Gray, and Ray Lamontagne. I never tire of these artists. Reply libby June 21, 2011 at 7:03 pm love bon iver!! Reply Lauri (Redheadrecipes.com) June 21, 2011 at 7:06 pm I set Pandora to ‘Oldies But Goodies’ and dance all around the kitchen!! Ha ha, LOVE some oldies! Reply Kristin June 21, 2011 at 7:26 pm I love the idea of a kitchen playlist!!!! Reply Miranda @ Working Mom Works Out June 21, 2011 at 7:34 pm Hmm, I don’t have a playlist. That’s probably why I stink at being in the kitchen. 😀 Reply Heather June 21, 2011 at 7:56 pm LOVE the plethora of Bon Iver! Reply Sarah June 21, 2011 at 8:10 pm Huge Bon Iver fan! I also enjoy Coldplay. Takes me back to a summer job and a first love. Ahhh. I just downloaded their new single. Lately, I’ve been listening to a lot of Adele, Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon, Foster the People, Two Door Cinema Club, Tom Petty, and Ratatat. I’ll have to check out Damien Jurado because I’m from Ohio, so I’m already liking the title of the song. Reply Janna June 21, 2011 at 8:31 pm I dig your style lady! I’ve been loving the Ellie Goulding pandora station lately. Check her stuff out! Reply kyla June 21, 2011 at 8:42 pm LOVE Bon Iver. I tend to listen to him more though in the fall/winter. Especially when it’s chilly and overcast out. Reply Ali June 21, 2011 at 9:20 pm I want to marry Justin Vernon. You have got to check out the new Bon Iver album. He is phenomenal. And he lives just near me in Wisconsin 🙂 Reply courtney (pancakes and postcards) June 21, 2011 at 9:46 pm great playlist! I have something on my ipod called “cooking” from YEARS ago and i’m pretty sure it has miley cyrus and beyonce on it. not quite as awesome. Reply Emily June 21, 2011 at 10:19 pm Bon Iver! Florence! Cat Power! Oooh, I appreciate… You have good taste, girl! Reply Katrina June 21, 2011 at 10:41 pm Grenade by Bruno Mars is a song I can’t get out of my head. Whyyyyy??? haha Reply Jamie@everydaydolce June 21, 2011 at 11:57 pm Jenna! So glad to see you’re a Bon Iver fan! Have you heard his latest track “Calgary” and his cover of Bonnie Raitt’s “I can’t you love me”? Reply amanda June 22, 2011 at 5:09 am I listen to that bon iver album too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5Swa9CYgRk this video is awesome. Reply Elena @MTJW June 22, 2011 at 6:55 am Wow, there’s a LOT of Bon Iver love on this comment board. If you like Bon Iver you should definitely check out FLEET FOXES. Their two albums are by far my favourite cooking music. She & Him also makes quite a strong appearance on my cooking playlist. Reply Elena @MTJW June 22, 2011 at 6:58 am Also check out http://www.cbc.ca/radio3 for some free Canadian Indie music! Reply val @ lots of dishes June 22, 2011 at 9:55 am you have to get the new bon iver album. it is magnificent. or just watch this over + over + over + over as i’m doing today. http://pitchfork.com/news/42940-watch-bon-iver-on-fallon-again/ Reply Melissa June 22, 2011 at 10:33 am I totally have a playlist entitled, “kitchen dancing”. And it DEFINITELY includes some Tegan and Sara…and some Frank Sinatra…and some Akon just for good measure. Reply Lara @ TresLaLa June 22, 2011 at 10:38 am New Bon Iver album came out yesterday, I believe. Heard the review on NPR – might be my next iTunes purchase! Although my normal kitchen soundtrack is usually whatever’s on HGTV or some crazy Pandora 80s station. Reply Fran June 22, 2011 at 11:41 am The fragrance of dark coffee youtube it its an awesome jazz song Reply Laura @ Backstage Pass June 22, 2011 at 7:11 pm Great playlist! Several favorite artists on there. My go-to cooking soundtrack is usually the Middle Cyclone album from Neko Case. And of course I have to sing along with each track! Reply Tami June 22, 2011 at 7:25 pm Had to let you know that my girlfriend from HS is the sister of Justin from Bon Iver. I forwarded her this link so she could see how far reaching his music is (although I think she knows! 😉 ). Fun to see your playlist! 🙂 Reply Charise June 23, 2011 at 5:06 am I like to throw on Pandora when I’m cooking – either the Mumford & Sons, Kate Nash, or La Roux stations are good for time in the kitchen, depending on my mood. Reply Gloria June 23, 2011 at 5:29 am You have awesome taste in music! I was especially excited to see Damien Jurado on there. Love him! Have you heard of Great Lake Swimmers? I think you might like them. I’m also really into Mumford & Sons and Fleet Foxes right now. Have a great day 🙂 Reply Marisa June 23, 2011 at 8:34 am I LOVE that you have local Seattle favorite Damien Jurado on your list! If you haven’t already I think you should check out another Seattle favorite The Head and the Heart. Based on your play list I think you’d really love them too! I’m so in love with them I’ve seen them play 8 times in the past year 😀 Reply Ashley June 23, 2011 at 2:21 pm Bon Iver is one of my favorites! SO glad his new album just came out! Reply alex June 23, 2011 at 9:54 pm I love your playlist. Chan Marshall is amazing. Reply Katherina @ Zephyr Runs June 26, 2011 at 6:18 am Great playlist… love all of those artists!
