April is ripe with resurrection. In central Virginia the cherry blossoms emerge from their slumber, the daffodils prove their resilience once again, and that great harbinger of lingering evenings of porch-based recreation and libation — baseball — returns to the center of the American self-understanding. All of it, as I say, ripe with resurrection. As such, enjoy the (admittedly idiosyncratic) sounds of spring:

Lake Street Dive, “Use Me Up”
Stevie Wonder, “I Wish”
Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings “Humble Me”
St. Paul & The Broken Bones, “Like a Mighty River”
Vampire Weekend, “Diplomat’s Son”
The National, “Fireproof”
Father John Misty, “Well, You Can Do it Without Me”
The Milk Carton Kids, “The Jewel of June”
Neil Diamond, “Sweet Caroline”
Laura Marling, “Blues Run the Game”
Fleet Foxes, “Oliver James”
