The Best  "What's In My Bag?" episodes of 2016

Season 9 of What's In My Bag? kicked off with our first double feature - one episode featuring all the members of Future Islands and a second video with the lead singer, Sam Herring, devoted to his hip hop picks. And from there we barreled headlong into the first weeks of 2016 with several of our favorite episodes, including Savages, The Internet, and Flea & Amy-Jo Albany. We had a lot of fun this season and we were fortunate enough to talk to an electronic music pioneer, a celebrated film director, a Supreme, a Japanese artist and producer, a fashion designer, and many, many more. 

Here are our 15 favorite episodes from season 9. Enjoy and thanks for watching!!

Silversun Pickups at Amoeba Hollywood

"I've always wanted to own this record and I don't know why I don't," says Brian Aubert of Silversun Pickups as he's holding up Adore Life, the sophomore album by Savages. Brian goes on to recall seeing the UK post-punk group perform at Coachella and having their "faces completely melted off." Brian, along with the rest of Silversun Pickups - Nikki Monninger, Joe Lester, and Christopher Guanlao - went shopping at Amoeba Hollywood recently and found an eclectic mix of rock, hip hop, ska, electronic, and lots of soundtracks.

Named after a liquor store across the street from the Silverlake Lounge, LA-based indie four-piece Silversun Pickups formed in 2000. The band's fanbase grew thanks to the release of the Pikul EP (2005), their first for Dangerbird Records. Their debut full-length, Carnavas, appeared in stores a year later and a series of high-profile touring gigs with OK Go, Kaiser Chiefs, and Snow Patrol exposed them to new audiences in the U.S. and Europe.
