Playlist of the Month: June 2021

This month, Dolby Atmos suddenly became a thing in the streaming music world, and I’ve been having fun with it! If you can, give it a try, it’s neat. (Admittedly, most of the discernible difference is just a matter of “this is a nice remaster,” but still.)

  1. if I listen to Majik enough, will they come back? I can dream
  2. “Some people call me six-lack”
  3. It’s really neat living in the future, because this song popped into my head the other day, and I just announced to the air that I wanted to hear it, and then, suddenly, there it was.
  4. This feels like my childhood, but in a way that doesn’t evoke nostalgia, somehow? It’s a very strange feeling, but I quite like it.
  5. I really enjoyed this whole album; I think Talata is my favorite, just because it’s the weirdest.
  6. I think this is the best Atmos remaster I’ve listened to so far.
  7. “This sounds like demons trying to tell you something.” – my sister
  8. This sounds like it shouldn’t be possible, what with the pandemic still ongoing, but it’s a delightful piece of music.
  9. If you haven’t yet watched Inside on Netflix, I heartily recommend it — it’s an incredible work of art. The fact that I got this song out of it, which is one of my favorites this month, is a nice plus.
