What I'm Listening To 2/20/2017

A weekly collection of songs I can't stop listening to, posted Mondays. This week: Perfume Genius, Elliott Moss, and The Flaming Lips. I'm hitting a groove right now with the delicate, atmospheric sound represented by this week's artists - it also happens to make for some great study music. Midterms ahoy.

What I'm Listening To 2/6/2017

A weekly collection of songs I can't stop listening to, posted Mondays. This week: Oshi, Baauer, and the debut solo project from Odd Future's own Syd. If you aren't on Syd yet, fix that immediately - the lead singer of "The Internet" dropped one hell of an album, and it's already one of the best releases of the year. I highly recommend the song "All About Me."

What I'm Listening To 1/23/2017

A weekly collection of songs I can't stop listening to, posted Mondays. This week: Migos, Raury, and Dirty Projectors. I've been on a real Dirty Projectors kick recently, and quite frankly, they've got the stuff. Maybe it's their unique sound; maybe it's just all the fog that's hanging around Ann Arbor. For whatever reason, their airy, electronic-meets-hymnal sound has just clicked with me. I highly recommend their latest single, "Up in Hudson," to listeners both familiar and not.

A weekly collection of songs I can't stop listening to, posted Mondays. This week: GoldLink, Marrow, and Empress Of. If you couldn't tell by the names, I spent all holiday break chasing Spotify's "related artists" links in search of genuinely-fresh music. Enjoy the results.

What I'm Listening To 2016

A collection of the 10 songs I couldn't stop listening to this year, posted on New Year's Eve. This year: James Blake, Bon Iver, Troye Sivan, Post Malone, and more. 

I pulled the following from Spotify's "Your Top Songs" playlist, then cut their 101 down to my personal Top 10. Since I won't be sharing new music until NEXT YEAR (lmao yfm), enjoy these selections.

What I'm Listening To 12/12/2016

A weekly collection of songs I can't stop listening to, posted Mondays. This week: Philip Glass, Hans Zimmer, Gesaffelstein, and other study music. It's finals season, so I'll sadly have to take a short break from the blog while I vindicate my out-of-state tuition. Onwards and upwards.

Looking to zone out while you crush that 10th straight hour of contract law? Listen to the full playlist below:

 

Honorable non-Spotify mention: check out the full "Koyaanisqatsi" soundtrack at the link here. It's the OST to a visionary film project from the 1980's, and the music is often cited as a direct influence on Hans Zimmer's work for "Interstellar." Give it a listen.

What I'm Listening To 12/5/2016

A weekly collection of songs I can't stop listening to, posted Mondays. This week: Darkstar, Phantogram, and Francis and the Lights. I don't know how or why I missed out on Francis and the Lights, but their bouyant electro-rock sound is easily the best thing I've heard all week. High praise for a week where the Hamilton Mixtape dropped on Friday. But really, listen to "See Her Out (That's Just Life)" - it's a song to fall in love with.

A weekly collection of songs I can't stop listening to, posted Mondays. This week: Anderson .Paak, Two Door Cinema Club, and the Nobel laureate himself, Bob Dylan. While I grew up far outside Dylan's context, my bonding with his music - his poetry - was, to me, evidence enough of the literature in his words. To hear that same sentiment echoed by the Nobel Committee is both incredible and gratifying.

A weekly collection of songs I can't stop listening to, posted Mondays. This week: M83, The Drums, and Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky. If you can't tell by my disappearance for days at a time, it's midterm season. To celebrate the protracted abject misery that is 4 exams in 4 days, I've compiled a playlist of favorite study music, plus, like one or two #certified bangers. Now, back to my flashcards.

A weekly collection of songs I can't stop listening to, posted Mondays. This week: Daft Punk, St Vincent, and the musical genius of Kamasi Washington. It's eclectic; it's jazzy; it's a sound so fresh you can buy it at Whole Foods. If you have a free ten minutes, grab a coffee and listen to Kamasi's music. You won't regret it.

A weekly collection of songs I can't stop listening to, posted Mondays. This week: Welcome Week bingo. If you hear any song on this list less than twice per party, leave. Your banger may be dangerously uncertified.

So, yeah: Chainsmokers, Kanye, and that one song where Sean Paul is somehow involved despite his career ending with "Temperature." Listen to the full playlist below:

To all my UMich readers: Happy Welcome Week. I'll see you on an elevated surface real soon.
