On my iPod: Kristen Bell

The ''House of Lies'' actress and new mom shares some of her favorite artists from Nashville stars to leather-pantsed Brits

LUKE BRYAN ''DRUNK ON YOU''

''This was my wake-up song last summer. The first chords make you wanna stretch and get out of bed. I'll play it in the car, lower the windows, and just sing at the top of my lungs.''

AUDRA MAE ''SNAKEBITE''

''Her voice is sultry and deep and smooth, and her [vocal] runs are fantastic. I find myself humming them all day.''

DEPECHE MODE ''JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH''

''I was obsessed with them in high school. They remind me of getting ready with my girlfriends to go on double dates to the movies.''

LONGWAVE ''THE STRANGEST THINGS''

''They have such a cool new-wavy-mixed-with-U2 sound. There are two slower songs on the album — 'Meet Me at the Bottom' and 'Can't Feel a Thing' — where the lead singer filters his voice, and it sounds so eerie and beautiful.''

MIRANDA LAMBERT ''MAMA'S BROKEN HEART''

''I love how sassy and funny it is. She's wonderful at infusing so much character into her songs.''

MARTIN SEXTON ''CANDY''

''My playlists are usually way too long because they have too many Martin Sexton songs. He's my all-time favorite artist; I've seen him live six times. His voice is off the charts, and he's amazing to watch live because you can tell he lives to play music.''
