Hi! I make playlists and review music. Shall we begin?

What kind of playlist curator would I be if I didn't start with a sad one? 2020 has been a weird, heartbreaking, scary, tough, confusing (need I go on?) year. I started the quarantine life with some upbeat, serotonin inducing playlists aptly named "quarantine mix" & "serotonin" before I slowly started to slip back into a place of existential dread. If you're still in the Tiger King/whipped coffee stage of quarantine, I linked the happy playlists for ya above. For the rest of you: the majority of music I indulge in is sad, or slow... in some way emotional. Music always takes me back to the person who introduced me to the band or where I was in my life when I became obsessed and inevitably ruined the song for myself.

     I wanted to start this little pet project off with a collection of songs for you to feel what I've been feeling for the last several months. [If you're just here for the music, skip to the bottom!] I'm excited to start sharing more of what I love to do with my friends, family, strangers of the internet. 

What to expect from this space: You can largely expect random music related opinions, spotify (sorry apple music users) playlists complete with a written list and some footnotes if I have anything interesting to add. I *almost* always keep my playlists named with the date on which I created it so I can go back and relive my feelings from past times.... yep I know, painfully nostalgic. I'll also need some feedback, how often should I be sharing these with you all? Are you more interested in music reviews or just playlists? Anyway, enjoy... or don't - I can't tell you what to do.

    I'm going to go easy on you guys to start, the real tear jerkers are still to come. I'll save those for my next breakup. 


*pro tip: if you copy the link and paste in your Spotify search feature, you can directly save the playlist in your app. Mobile users, just click on the playlist photo above.
