The soundtrack to Beabadoobee's dreams

5 Songs We Can't Stop Listening To is a collection of our newest favorite songs. Every week we ask an artist that we love to tell us about the music they love.

Listen to the whole segment below.
Beabadoobee on Sonic Youth

Beabadoobee picks "Sugar Kane" by Sonic Youth

My guest today is Beabadoobee. Beabadoobee is Bea Kristi, an 18-year-old guitarist who, I think, is poised to be a star. She's got an obsession with '90s music and she's about to release a new EP called, "Space Cadet." We've been playing her song " If You Want To." Listen for yourself.

Bea, what is the last song you can't stop listening to?

"Sugar Kane" by Sonic Youth.

What do you like about Sonic Youth?

Kim Gordon's just bad ass. Everything about them is cool. Guitar sounds are cool.

I recently I fell asleep in a car ride and the song was just playing on repeat so it was just playing in my dream. I woke up and it was just constantly in my head. So it's just been in my brain.

Do you remember what you dreamt of?

I have really normal boring dreams. Like I go out of my car and I go to my singing lesson. That was the dream. And then I woke up and I got out of the car and wen't to the singing lesson. But in the dream, the music is playing in the background. It's like in "Inception" where they keep the music on in that movie to let you know they are in a dream. It's super trippy.
