Songs to play at my hipster house parties

OK, this is a hipster house party, so you’re going to want to move, but you won’t want the music to be too recognizable, too mainstream. You’ll also want some “ironic” picks, if only because saying they’re ironic is the only way you can play some guilty pleasures without feeling like trend-following normies. Ultimately, you don’t want indie cred and dance-able jams to be mutually exclusive.

Here’s a three-and-a-half-hour soundtrack for a super hip soiree.
