Finn Wolfhard What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard visited Amoeba Hollywood recently and shared some music picks and talked about his band Calpurnia, whose first single "City Boy" was just released last week. "Most of this music is very influential to us," Wolfhard said of his selections, which included his current favorite band, The Lemon Twigs. "They're only a couple years older than I am, which is crazy," the 15-year old actor and musician told us. "They put on an incredible live show," he said before plugging their live video shot during their in-store performance at Amoeba. "Check that out."

Stranger Things 2 posterCanadian actor Finn Wolfhard is best-known for playing Mike Wheeler on Stranger Things. Born in Vancouver, Wolfhard made his first TV appearance on The CW sci-fi drama The 100. This was followed by an episode of Supernatural, in which he played Jordie Pinsky, a kidnapped boy threatened by a soulless babysitter. He auditioned for Stranger Things after seeing an open casting call. He and the rest of the cast won the award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series at the 2017 SAG Awards.

Wolfhard hit the big screen as the character Richie Tozier in the 2017 adaptation of Stephen King's It. He is set to appear in director Ken Marino's Dog Days alongside Eva Longoria, Vanessa Hudgens, and Nina Dobrev. He has also signed on to Floria Sigismondi's The Turning, based on Henry James' The Turn of the Screw. He will voice the character of "Player," the main accomplice of the titular character in Netflix's upcoming animated series Carmen Sandiego. Apart from his acting career, Wolfhard also performs in Calpurnia, an alt/indie rock band on Royal Mountain Records.

In this What's In My Bag? episode, Wolfahard grabs the latest record from California indie-rockers Foxygen, Hang, which also features Lemon Twig Michael D'Addario on drums. But there's another connection between the two acts, as Wolfhard points out that Jonathan Rado, co-frontman of Foxygen, produced The Lemon Twigs' debut, Do Hollywood. Wolfhard particularly liked the orchestral arrangements on Hang, calling them "super amazing." Wolfhard was also digging the recent collaboration between Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile, Lotta Sea Lice, saying, "It's so good and so tight."

But which recent movie soundtrack is "perfect" according to Wolfhard? And which early Jesse Eisenberg film is he excited to take home to explore the special features? You'll have to watch the video to find out:
