SOTW #11

Hello! Happy Late Fourth of JU LIE! Today is Wednesday and I want to talk about my songs of the week. For this week I haven’t really been listening to normal songs on my phone. I have actually been enjoying the silence while I do things in my time. Or I actually play a random recommended music video or song from youtube. Here is what i have been listening:

Silly Girl by Lonely Benson 

Memories by Fenster

Im recommend by this channel called TheLazylazyme. I haven’t listened to anything else but music from youtube. Let me know about what songs you all are listening to! I’d love to hear any new recommendations and artists!

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

Lemons

You have me so use me wisely, because most of the time I’m forgotten in the bottom

Bitter I may be and fresh, thumb my head till I shed even.

Zesting perfectly till you can taste me again.

Life Update

Last time I talked It was about my travel and passport issues. There is good news! I got my passport corrected and I also got a refund from the government for their mistake! I talked to my dad about when to set a date for travel and we decided on July 10, which is surprisingly close. In exactly one week until I board a plane with about four transfers. It is really nerve racking but exciting at the same time. It is finally going to happen and I can’t believe. I have no other words to describe how I’m feeling. It does feel surreal.

The summer so far has been uneventful and honestly I can not wait until school starts. Summer makes me feel sluggish, tired, and unproductive. I don’t think I can stand not having work to do or walking around campus. I have been afraid lately that I would gain weight during the summer, but I think I have actually lost weight because of the lack of eating. Don’t worry, I’m okay! I normally don’t eat as much, but being stuck in a house with no much food is part of the problem.

On another point of new news is I got a hair cut. I did something I told myself I wouldn’t do which is BANGS. I got good compliments so I think they aren’t that bad. I just can’t wait till my hair gets longer, I always end up cutting it or trimming or picking a new style. I vow to not cut again and to wait out the waylay hair will grow. Although I like my new cut, I don’t like having to do my hair in the morning. Literally in my situation and layered hair, I can not have slept in hair unless it’s in a bun or pony tail. I should invest in some hair softener…

Besides that everything is changing a bit in my life. Some personal things I am going through. Having hard times and emotions are rolling over me. Sometimes it is really difficult but I try to look for the good, or I drown it out by listening to music. The usual fixes.

I hope everyones summer is going great!

New Artist Inspiration 

Of course the way I spend my morning is watching the latest YouTube videos. I was watching a video about 20 minutes ago from youtuber lindseyrem and it was about her latest summer playlist. Already from the first artist she mentioned- Puzzle aka an extension of The Garden– I was interested in what else she would mention. The next artist was Temporex 


I’ve been looking for a new artist with this type of music. It’s calming,simple, and relaxing. One way I could describe this sound is that it’s rounder, polished in a way. I really enjoyed the song Nice Boys from the album We Care. There is no effort to listen to and it is nice for some background sound and moments of lounging around.


This is a pretty nice find, and I can’t wait to lay back, write, read, and listen to it all summer.

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

SOTW #10 

Hello my Birdies, lately I’ve been writing a lot of poetry and reading books and it slipped my mind to talk about music and my songs of the week. This is what I’ve been listening to recently:

Baby Blue by King Krule

Late Bloomers by The Growlers

I’m on my way to go listen he album Ctrl by SZA. I heard some really good things about it so I can’t wait to hear it, especially because she is a female artist.


Give it a listen, give music a change.

Dreams of how wrong it is to dream

Over and under my head just keeps thoughts warm

Never deny what you don’t see

Because murmurs in your sleep don’t compare

In a state of unconsciousness is the peaceful reminder

Not only can you breathe

But I can too

Day Wave Album Review: The Days We Had

Lately it has been tricky for me to listen to anything else other than Mac Demarco’s lasted album This Old Dog. I know I do mention it a lot in these past few blog posts but honestly I really enjoy the music he makes and has became one of my most favorite artists. But I knew I had to broaden my horizons, and this month a few artists have release a great amount of new albums and music which I am looking forward to listen to this summer. On the same day as Mac Demarco the band Day Wave released their new album The Days We Had. I get bored during the summer and especially when I lounge in my room with nothing to do. Sometimes I decided to do work outs and I discovered that it is a great opportunity to listen to a new albums, plus it helps with boredom when I workout. Now, Day Wave has certainly out done himself with this new release. With one listen I felt completely immersed with nostalgia and calming quiet drives around town. The tracks on this album certainly convey momentum while calming with the lyrics.

For those of you who don’t know who Day Wave is, it is a Ameircan Indie rock band formed from Okland, California. The band consists with main instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Jackson Philips who formed this production in 2015. So it’s been not so long ago that Day Wave has come to the public.

In this albums, I would say that this is the type of album that is “safe and comfortable” meaning that this can appeal to any kind of modern music lover, indie or rock fan. I can play these songs while going to run errands, in the car, running, cleaning- it is a variety like this albums. Going to the beach? Kick back and play this album on your way there. The synthesized melodies correlated so well to the wispy vocals of Philips. The guitar riffs and patterns are rhythmic and catch, along with the subtle bass in the back ground. The chorus in song drops comfortable with endurance.

Songs that I enjoy ( in no particular order):

  • Something Here
  • Bring You Down
  • Wasting Time
  • Promises
  • On Your Side

I believe that artist Jackson Philips has come out of his shell to show his true artistry. He is not afraid to make the music and style he believes in. Another song that I enjoy is not from this album but a single he released called Drag in 2015. One thing I would say about this album and this style if music is that the songs do sound similar to one another. I can’t really pin point exactly what song I enjoyed because when I look for it the songs sound like one another. Production and time is good in this album, and I believe it deserves a 7.5 or an 8 out of 10. It is an enjoyable collection of songs and is nice to listen to while chilling or relaxing.

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

SOTW #9

Hello! I hope everyone had a great weekend and listened to some awesome music! This past week I have been listening to a lot of music in my spare time and while doing that I rearranged my room. Summer brings out so much boredom so I decided to just clean, donate, and throw out a lot of junk I had. By doing that it was incredibly refreshing just to get so much cutter out. Now that I have space to relax, here is some of the songs I have been listening to

This one is a great one from the past

Take it or Leave It by Cage the Elephant 

Happy Idiot by TV on the Radio

This song was recommended to me and it surprised me. I really enjoyed it and also the music video featuring Paul Rubens aka Pee Wee Herman.

Another band I’ve been listening to is Makeour Videotape an old band of Mac Demarco. This one song stuck out to me

Because I’m a boy by Makeout Videotape

And also

Heat Wave by Makeout Videotape

Thanks for dropping in, give this a like or comment!

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

Hello!!

I am sorry that this post is a bit late, it slipped out of my mind to talk about the song(s) of the week. I did post other things towards the poetry category so I was focusing on that. I have been reading lately so I’ll let you know about some books I’ve bought and what I am currently reading. For this weeks song(s) I have been listening to a lot of Mac Demarcos new album so I won’t put that down since it was part of last weeks songs. Day Wave came out with a album this year and I’ve been enjoying pretty much all the songs.

I like this one.

Something Here by Day Wave


And this new artist that I found on YouTube 

Lauren by Men I Trust

I hope you enjoy these songs as much as I did! Let me know what songs you like to listen to! 

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

Finally the sun fades in the summer heat

It is out of the question how day is night

Let me know about your day and I’ll tell you about mine

Words are inside out and upside down between teeth and finger

I am tired and so are you, we sleep

Having seen your face brought something than another

Over the time and over the days it never got old

Leading and lending the quiet and exchanges of you and me

Left and looked lovelier than life

I knew that meeting you was finding the clean air to breathe

Everything found a place in time
