SOTW #44

Hello! Happy First day of spring. I would have posted a new playlist today but I am behind on my SOTW! But don’t worry, a new playlist will be published this week!

Lately, I’ve been listening to a mixture of song and artists, so nothing in particular.

Most of these songs are on a playlist I made where I save new songs to show to you guys. Pretty much all of these will appear on the Spring Break Playlist…

Albums and Songs I (you) Need to Listen To

Albums and Songs I (you) Need to Listen To

Hello. So like I said so much music has been a big factor and friend in my life. Recently I have been introduced to many new songs, artists, and albums and I feel that I should make a list of these things just so we could be on the same page in the music vibe. That reminds me- I have a lot of books to read. Maybe I should make a book club or something. I know that I want to read a book during the Christmas break, and especially the summer break. Oh, I can not wait for the summer. So much is going to happen and I am so excited.

Now about music.

I’ve been sort of overplaying my Fallin Down playlist (which you should go check out on the menu), so I’ve been playing absolutely anything and any recommendations on Spotify. So I collected these songs and albums in hope to make a cumulative list.

This is not in any specific order

Albums and EPs

  • Love Child by Enjoy
  • Funk Way Bounces Vol.1 by Calvin Harris
  • Little World by Zack Villere
  • Is Everything Okay In Your World? by Yellow Days
  • This Is Fine. by Winona Forever
  • Nothing Bothers Me by Triathalon
  • Cold Shower (EP) by Triathalon
  • Boo Boo by Toro y Moi
  • Human Ceremony by Sunflower Bean
  • Vault Vol 3 by STRFKR
  • Apricot Princess by Rex Orange County
  • Ti Amo by Phoenix
  • After Laughter by Paramore
  • Green Juice by Papooz
  • Amo XO by No Vacation
  • Headroom by Men I Trust
  • Super Clean Vol. 1 (EP) by The Marías
  • The OOZ by King Krule (and I need to listen to Six Feet Beneath the Moon again)
  • American Boyfriend by Kevin Abstract
  • Underwater Pipe Dreams by Inner Wave
  • Yellow and Such (EP) by Gus Dapperton
  • Powerplant by Girlpool
  • Blonde by Frank Ocean
  • Freudian by Daniel Caesar
  • Utopia by Björk
  • Dedicated To Bobby Jameson by Ariel Pink
  • SATURATION by BROCKHAMPTON
  • Goblin by Tyler the Creator (I’ve heard some of these songs but I want to listen to it as a collective)

Singles

  • I Was a Fool by Sunflower Bean
  • Tepid Soul by Poppy Ajudha
  • Love Falls Down by Poppy Ajudha
  • Mind Fields by No Vacation
  • Hope To Be Around by Men I Trust
  • Tail Whip by Men I Trust
  • You Deserve This by Men I Trust
  • Lauren by Men I Trust
  • Double L by Club Kuru
  • Best I Can by Micheal Cera feat. Sharon Van Etten

It is a long list, but that’s the point. I want to constantly immerse myself in new music. I know some of these artists already and have heard few of these albums. However, I want to go back on some and really listen to them and enjoy them in its entirety. I’m not sure where to start. Maybe I’ll make separate playlists with the albums divided.

I hope you follow me and listen to these selections!

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

For this song of the week I’ve been listening to a lot of Rex Orange County. Reason being is that it’s all my boyfriend has been playing everyday lol. But hey, I like it. We actually stumbled upon him when I was watching music videos for Jakob Ogawa and I saw a video for Rex Orange County, and since then my boyfriend has been hooked listening to him every day. We were surprised to find out that Rex was featured in two of Tyler The Creators songs in his new album Flower Boy. Damn this music world is so diverse and interconnected. I love it so much

Rex Orange County Songs:

This is the video we watched

Loving is Easy

Know Love 

Corduroy Daydreams

Learning about these new artists just feels so rewarding and welcoming. New music is good to expose yourself to.

Give it a listen, Give music a chance.

Can I just say that music is the best thing in the world. Besides peace and happiness, music is the closest thing to this. I hope everyone’s weekend has been good. I hope you got to rest and had time to relax. I got to go back home this weekend which was a wonderful little break from school. I really needed it. But back to the topic! The SOTW are:

You Might be Sleeping by Jakob Ogawa, and Clario

This is a new artist that has popped up in my music station a lot, these are the songs that I can remember so far.

Let It Pass by Jakob Ogawa

He has pretty calm Lo-Fi music which I’m sure anyone would like to listen to. I hope you give these a listen! See you next time!

Give it a listen, give music a Chance.

Now, we’re going to go back to an oldie song. Well, not that old, somewhere in the 2010’s. I remember one summer I was really into two songs of  Foster The People’s songs in their album Supermodel.

I loved playing this song on the ukulele.

Goats in Trees

Another great one of theirs is:

Best Friend

Just hearing these songs reminds me of old memories and a time where music really helped me out,

Now I have two others songs to mention. This one is a new artist favorite in mind:

Really Something by Hector Gachan

And this next one is a favorite in general. I love The Garden twins.

Soaring by Puzzle, twin Fletcher’s project aside from The Garden

****And bonus shout out song to his new album that was released this year.****

I hope you enjoy these selections!

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

Welcome to a new segment of the SOTW.

For this week Ive been listening to random radio playlists and stations based on the songs that I like and artists I follow. Lately I just come upon really great and amazing songs that makes me feel something. The genre is somewhat the same but it makes me happy and feel good. I try my best to listen to a new song every day or every week. Sometimes a new artist finds it’s way to me every day, or even a new album. I got to stay fresh when it comes to music. But I still do love my personal favorites 🙂

Is This What You Can Not Do? by Gold Celeste

I hope you enjoy these songs. Leave a comment or like this post if you want to hear more music like this. Have a wonderful week!!!

Give it a listen, give music a chance.
