Almost everyone, and everything, celebrates the arrival of spring. It's a time of rejuvenation, optimism, joy and warmer, longer days.

Plus, it's an excuse to create a playlist featuring great indie and alternative songs about spring. This installment features Annuals, Spinning Wheels, The Fancy Dress Party, The Boy Least Likely To, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and The Postmarks.

"Springtime" - Annuals from Such Fun (2008)

"Allergy Season" - Spinning Wheels from Master (2008)

"Egg & Spoon Race" - The Fancy Dress Party from Off The Beaten Tracks (2008)

"I Box Up All The Butterflies" - The Boy Least Likely To from The Law Of The Playground (2009)

"Sunshine and Clouds" - Clap Your Hands Say Yeah from s/t debut (2005)

"Winter Spring Summer Fall" - The Postmarks from s/t debut (2007)

The second installment of the Songs of Spring playlist series will feature tracks from The Flaming Lips, Akon/Family, The Airborne Toxic Event, Stan Getz and Matt Pond PA.
