Playlist of the Month: July 2022

Writing this up in the midst of a heatwave has me feeling like this playlist should be either more summer-y, or go in the complete opposite direction and have a bunch of winter music to remind myself that the heat won’t last forever.

  1. The title of this one occasionally makes my brain jump to Major Tom.
  2. Discovered courtesy of my roommate’s Spotify algorithm. This came on in the car, and after a minute, he just said “yodelstep!”
  3. I’ve spent several months occasionally getting a single word of this stuck in my head. “Tanqueray”, even with the little melodic riff going on in it, isn’t enough for Shazam to figure out what song you mean.
  4. Putting this together I finally went “okay, yeah, it’s worth it” and added two entire albums of his music to my library. I absolutely love this track.
  5. This is what happens when you combine the cover of Charlie Brown with a song titled Magic earlier in the playlist.

Playlist of the Month: June 2022

Apropos of… something, how about you go see how your senator feels about filibuster reform, and then give them a call and either say “thanks for thinking we should reform this!” or “we desperately need to fix this horrible broken system.”

  1. Sufjan Stevens has a very specific musical vibe, and a very specific album art vibe, and they are not the same vibe.
  2. I should start tuning into the lyrics, I really think Danielson is just out here writing and performing entire musical theatre productions.
  3. Absolutely love both Aquilo and Fyfe & Iskra Strings, so this is a great collaboration.
  4. I’d forgotten how much I like EDEN; this sounds new and also absolutely like EDEN.
  5. Really reminds me of Steve Reich, at least the opening.

Underneath – Hayden Calnin on Something / Anything – EP

  1. I know, I know, I’m very late to this album, but as it turns out, it’s still very good!
  2. Whilst thoroughly explicit, I still love this – the backing vocals are just beautiful and haunting, and it all comes together so, so well.
  3. Having just moved from the suburbs into the actual city, this song felt strangely appropriate. (Ignoring that the city I moved to definitely isn’t ‘the land of a billion lights.’)
  4. Absolutely loving this whole album. Yoste is starting to fill the hole in my heart left by Majik disappearing.
  5. “To truly understand love, switch positions”

I had COVID this month, and let me tell you, as a young, healthy, vaccinated-and-boosted person: it sucked. Get vaccinated—it may not keep you from getting it, but “a couple days of fever and a couple weeks of coughing” is a lot better than I would’ve done without the vaccine.

Antidote – Chloe Ament on Broken Bodies, Broken Hearts – EP

  1. This is one of those songs that I find via Apple Music suggesting it, and then a few days later start seeing it in Instagram stories. There’s probably some kind of connection there, but it’s a “this song is about to be popular” kind of thing, and not an “omg my phone is spying on me!!1!” thing.
  2. Really digging the new Yoste this month.
  3. Possibly my favorite addition this month? Don’t mind me, just very late to this album.
  4. Getting this album into Apple Music took some doing. If you start getting an error talking about Genius (a feature that no longer exists), the actual fix is “sign out of iTunes, quit, relaunch, sign back in.”

  2. “Hey, my music isn’t all sad British hipsters with laptops! … some of them are Australian.”
  3. One day I’m gonna have to search my own playlist archives and see how often I say “I miss Majik,” because it’s a lot.
  4. Brought back in because I’m updating my CPR certification, and we always called the CPR dummies “Annie” for whatever reason. Arrive at the scene, do the initial check: “Annie are you okay?”

  1. This cover hits surprisingly hard – “Lights will guide you home/and ignite your bones/and I will try to fix me” is such a small change, but wow does it change the song.
  2. Jónsi’s music remains simultaneously wonderful and achingly lonely
  3. God I miss Majik.
  4. I like this song, but I can’t read the name without my mind immediately going to “If I Die Young” instead.
  5. It’s taken me a while to listen this whole album, but it’s excellent!
  6. Listen, sometimes you just have to blast some music from your childhood and sing along at the top of your lungs.
  7. If it weren’t for the Fix You cover, this might win for “most sing-along-able” song this month.

  1. Kinda reminds me of The Sunken Cathedral and I want to know if that’s deliberate.
  2. One day I’m gonna pull this track and reverse it – I’m very curious if it’s the backing track from Don’t Tell the Boys played backwards.
  3. May or may not have spent half an hour listening to this over and over, being impressed by The Weeknd’s vocal talent.
  4. Listen to the Atmos version, it’s neat!
  5. Occasionally I really like something in this style.
  6. Really enjoying this find, because you can totally hear bits of the song that made their way into other tracks later in their career.
  7. I’d love to talk with the artist, I want to know if the Quiet City reference here is deliberate. Given the title and that it sounds like it, I have to think it is!
  8. Bringing this one back because I just love the lyrics. “Nevermind ‘thou shalt not kill,’ we’re dealing now with infidels.”

TYPECAST – ELIO on TYPECAST – Single

Sumarið sem aldrei kom – Jónsi on Shiver9

  1. The album art here keeps making me think of “Meddling Kids”.
  2. Woodkid’s music is usually pretty cinematic in feel, and this is no difference. If you’ve ever got an opportunity for a sword fight with a vampire in a cathedral, this is the perfect backing track.
  3. Sometimes, when I’m getting these links, I search for “better off as strangers aquilo a safe place to be” and iTunes goes “lol never heard of her” and other times I search for “infinity coldplay” and it gets exactly what I want.
  4. Found this via a YouTube video about the Christchurch earthquake, of all things
  5. I’d love to talk to Benjamins about this one – between the name and the opening piano bit, there’s a lot that feels very Debussy about this.
  6. I’m delighted by this title, because the music in this sounds exactly like a ton of the music I listened to growing up. Chef’s kiss.
  7. This is the most Fall Music of everything on the list, I think.
  8. This just made it onto the list at the end of the month, but it very much feels like one that I’ll do a lot of singing along to once I know it.
  9. Another reappearance from last year; I just love the feeling of space in this.

Chronically Beautiful – flora cash on Chronically Beautiful – EP

Higher Power – Coldplay on Music of the Spheres

  1. This was an excellent musical choice for how it was used in Black Widow.
  2. Much like the song, I woke up, sat bolt upright in bed, and started singing this. Incredibly catchy.
  3. Some lovely Novo Amor, but tempered by the other artists, so it doesn’t immediately crush you with The Sadness.
  4. “Don’t you want to see your sister again? Her life’s a wreck, but she was cool back then.” – sent to my sister, thanks to the “share lyrics” thing in Music.
  5. I think Hayden Calnin is the most lyrically interesting artist I’m listening to at the moment. Good stuff!
  6. Probably my single favorite new one this month; I can’t figure out what song it’s making me nostalgic for, but it’s definitely doing it.
  7. Very cinematic in feeling; is there a reverse “what song is in this show?” site so I can look up what shows wind up using this song?

  1. But seriously, if Burnham doesn’t win an Emmy for Inside, I… don’t know what I’ll do, really. Disregard the entire concept of the Emmys for the future, I suppose.
  2. I’ve yet to tune in to the entirety of the lyrics here, but the bits I do listen to feel about right for the title, which I like.
  3. “… where the normal people are. But don’t worry: I’m going to help you hide the fact that you’re high as shit.”
  4. My taste in music, at the moment, is definitely Very Autotune on the vocals.
  5. Definitely my favorite new addition this month; kinda reminds me of the Westworld theme.

Distorted Light Beam – Bastille on Distorted Light Beam – Single

  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.

  1. “You were an honest mistake.” oof.
  2. I also quite like the music video, it’s a nice counterpart to the song.
  3. “It tasted like Thomas Malthus.” is a truly excellent line. Really, all the lyrics in here are great.
  4. This whole thing feels like he just hit record and did the entire vocal track in one go, and then filled in the music afterwards. Very improvisational feel.
  5. Really enjoying this whole EP, in case you can’t tell by the way I’ve got the entire thing on this playlist.
  6. I miss Majik so much, and I hope the guys that used to be the band are doing well.
