NEED TO DOWNLOAD: Sultry Spring Tunes

99-CENT DJ MC's sultry playlist for your next spring fling

"Tiny Light," (opens in new tab) GRACE POTTER AND THE NOCTURNALS.

Restrained for the song's comely, '70s California pop beginnings, Potter, a throaty powerhouse, ultimately lets loose her blow-the-doors-off wail. Stand back.

"Hustle," (opens in new tab)TUNNG.

Acoustic guitar, banjo, and hushed boy-girl vocals sweep along percolating electronics and kitchen-sink percussion—intimate pop that's somehow both breezily childlike and lustily adult.

"Deny All," (opens in new tab) BETTIE SERVEERT.

Grunge-era college-radio faves return with stomping, punky pop. Dutch singer Carol van Dijk's take-no-shit vocals sweetly swipe lipstick on top of wicked guitar snarls.

"Caught in the Crowd," (opens in new tab) KATE MILLER-HEIDKE.

The quirky Aussie pop star's gamine vocals lend a plainspoken poignancy to this tale of going along with the high school crowd at the expense of a sweet boy.

"Better Things to Do," SHARON JONES & THE DAP-KINGS.

Jones, a former prison guard, boasts a voice that's commanding and brawny in this fiery, strutting kiss-off to a wayward man.

"Maneater," (opens in new tab) THE BIRD & THE BEE. 

This retro-cute band's electro-pop rethink of the Hall & Oates classic is silky and adorable, adorned with flirty frills perfect for dressing up singer Inara George's sinewy whisper.
