wooooaaahhh nilly, where the heck did april go?! believe it or not, I’ve actually had this playlist ready to go for a while. but, I have been so consumed getting spirits done that I never got around to sharing it with all of you!
so I have to say that this month’s playlist is pretty rad. it’s got a good mix of upbeat stuff at that start (m83, a new track from paramore, and a song I’m obsessed with from the moth and the flame), and then it all tapers out with some super chill tracks (like a random one from rogue wave, cotton jones, and exes).
I feel like I also need to give a shout out to the 13 reasons why soundtrack, where a lot of the songs for this month came from. so definitely check out that complete playlist if you’re looking for more stuff to listen to…
enjoy, and happy beltane!

I don’t know what it was about this month, but I seemed to have experienced a bit of a music dry spell. typically, I am able to fill up a playlist rapid speed with new and old finds. but for some reason, I just struggled to get this one to the finish line. maybe it was my schedule, maybe I just wasn’t really in any sort of mood. who knows!
I do find however, when I’m in a funk like this – that I default to sort of chill-hop instrumental stuff (and that genre consumes a lot of this playlist). and honestly, it’s the best kind of tunes if you’re in any sort of ‘creative zone’. ps: definitely listen to this playlist in order (and not on shuffle), it mellows out towards the end…

it’s crazy to think that I’ve only got one more playlist after this and we’ll be closing out 2016…
this month’s playlist is definitely on the mellow side. I think a big part of it is the time of year. once halloween passes, I’m usually a bit bummed and just want to plow through the holidays. needless to say – you won’t be getting any christmas music from me next month.
I want to point out two bands I’ve discovered and that are on this list: genders and springtime carnivore. they both happened to be opening bands for other shows I attended recently, and I fell in love with them almost immediately. so much so, I’ve hunted down springtime carnivore and am attending a free show they’re doing tonight in hollywood. I highly recommend checking out both of these bands on spotify…you know…if you want to go down that rabbit hole…

this month’s playlist is just full of good vibes and tons of new indie stuff I sort of stumbled into (and by ‘new’ I mean, new to me). I’ve also sprinkled some random classic jams in, like the tracks from america and inxs. while most of my playlists work in shuffle mode, I would recommend playing this one in order! it starts off more upbeat and then mellows out towards the end…
as promised I’ll be delivering a second playlist your way next week that is purely halloween themed. so stay tuned! (haha, tuned…get it?)

now I will admit, the playlist for this month seems like it’s on the short side. but for whatever reason…it felt done to me!
this month’s playlist of course had to include empire of the sun’s new single. it’s also sprinkled with some random 90’s tunes, and a great cover of ‘howling’ by cathedrals. that howling cover is so good that I’ve been looping it non-stop all month…
stay tuned for october’s playlist, which is already well under way! I will also be sharing an additional playlist next month made just for halloween. otherwise, check out september’s playlist below!
