Spotify Saturday

Welcome to the first Spotify Saturday! This weekend I’m feeling like the future is female and so I’ve created a playlist called just that. A reminder to all of us women that we’re stronger when we support each other.

In the words of Viola Davis:

Come have a listen to some of my favourite female artists and let me know some of yours! I’d love to add them to this playlist. Don’t forget to follow this playlist as it continues to grow!

July Tunes: What I'm Listening To This Month

Here's some of the things in rotation on my Apple Music account, Spotify, and on my turntable this month! I've clearly had a penchant for soul and synth in July!

Have been looking for a little soul food lately and a friend suggested this yummy playlist on Spotify.  Come check it out if you're a fan of 60's soul.

Simply one of the greatest soundtracks of all time, in my humble opinion. I just picked up a vinyl copy of the 2015 Paisley Park remaster which was overseen by Prince himself.  This version includes the 1984 original packaging and poster! What a treat!

"Ain't No Sunshine" got stuck in my head one day so I sought out the album to listen to on Apple Music. I've had Just As I Am on heavy rotation this month.

I'm a big fan of Montreal's Arcade Fire. If you ever get a chance to see them live--do it!  You might get that chance very soon as their new album is coming out next week so a tour will soon follow. Knowing this band, their new album won't sound anything like Reflektor but I'm getting myself in an Arcade Fire frame of mind by reliving the excitement of their 2013 "senior-year" album.

The trailer for Stranger Things 2 was released this month and I got so excited I needed to go back and listen to one of my favorite synth/ethereal albums of 2016. Just hearing the theme song alone gives me chills!

June Tunes: What I'm Listening To This Month

Here's some of the things in rotation on my Apple Music account and on my turntable this month! Keep checking back as I continue to add more. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to add them in the comments!

I'm really digging Paramore's latest album After Laughter! Being the child of 80s pop that I am, this hits all the right keys on the synthesizer.

If there's one CD I wore out due to constant replay it's this one, back in the 90s. I have been waiting for YEARS for the Singles OST to be reissued on vinyl. One of the best soundtracks I now re-own. A great trip down memory lane.

Ah, Maggie Rogers. She's really an artist you won't soon forget. Now That The Light Is Fading is her first EP and it's simply beautiful.

These are my girls! Their album Something To Tell You hasn't been officially released yet but if their two singles are any indication of how this album is gonna play out, I'm super excited. I'm such a HAIM fangirl.

Speaking In Tongues is an oldie but a goodie and I've enjoyed revisiting it lately. I just love David Byrne's voice. I was just saying the other day to a friend that he's got one of those recognizable voices that you instantly know who it is. Also, the more I listen to This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody), the more I believe it is one the best love songs ever written.
