Los Angeles based alt rocker DAVIS recently premiered the music video for his track “Welcome to Los Angeles” with idobi Radio. The song itself blends whirring guitars and a laid back vibe to produce a low key “driving with the windows down in your car” visual, even without the video.

DAVIS curated a playlist exclusively for Imperfect Fifth to celebrate his new music video. Check it out below.

Bleachers:
This is the best song he’s done in my opinion. It’s got great lyrics, great production. And a bit of Springsteen in there, which is always a good thing.Blood Orange:
Dev Hynes is incredible: a true artist. He has an amazing way of creating a context to his music that welcomes the listener into his world.Cage The Elephant:
This is a Wreckless Eric song. I used to cover it all the time at The Sayers Club in Hollywood. Great tune. Cage The Elephant did a great version.QOTSA:
Queens is hands down the best rock n roll band out there right now. This song is insanely good. It’s got the best groove ever and the guitar parts are perfect.Michael Kiwanuka:
I first heard this song on the radio while stuck in terrible traffic on the Hollywood fwy. It somehow turned what was a drive through hell into a Tarantino movie. Epic.

Mikes Kane:
Classic. Emotive. Real.

Catfish and the Bottlemen:
I was obsessed with this song when it came out. Instantly brought me back to the early 2000s when you had amazing bands like  The Libertines and Razorlight coming out.

Gorillaz:
Damon Albarn is a genius. Everything he does I’m a fan of. Incredible songwriter, incredible lyricist, and his melodies are always so angelic. This remix is great because it reminds of the early house music that came out of Manchester in the late 80s.

The Horrors:
This band gets better every single record. They are one of the few bands I can safely say that their best album is always their latest.

Beck:
Insane. Production is next level.

Hamilton Leithauser & Rostam:
Hamilton Leithauser’s voice is next level. He’s always been an inspiration on me vocally, ever since I heard him in The Walkmen.
