SOTW #14

Newest song of the week comes from a soundtrack of a movie called Inherent Vice directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. I may have talked about this before, and I seen this movie a while ago but the song never fails.

Amethyst by Johnny Green Wood

From the moment I heard this song I fell in love with it, it really is something beautiful.

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

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.

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.

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!

Playlist 6: Summer Time Breezes

Songs of the summer make me think of loneliness. In summertime you either do nothing or do NOTHING with you time. You wither have all this money to and take vacation or you’ll being like me where I end up  getting stuck at home. And not all vacations require money and going to a different country, sometimes you spend time with other people or you meet up with friends. I remember in my summer days I would just spend them alone in my house. No one would really call me or text me to do anything. Sometimes people would come over but when I think of summer I think of my ROOM because 99 percent of my time was in there. So might as well listen to music and drown in my loneliness and laziness. In a way these summers are different for me. I never like breaks because I find myself stuck alone all the time, and thats because I love being alone. I love being with myself and my music, but it is way better to share it with someone. In this playlist I’ll try to share what I like to listen to and what I have been listening to during the summer. I hope you enjoy!

  1. Summer Whisper by Tomppabeats

2. Still Beating by Mac Demarco

3. Something Here by Day Wave

Album Review: Mac Demarco This Old Dog

I have been waiting for this album for a very very long time. And at last it finally came out on May 5, the day before I went to see Chance The Rapper. Mac Demarco is coming clean in this brand new side of himself in the album This Old Dog. In this album we a given a collective storyline of emotions through all the tracks. From the first song My Old Man to the last in Watching Him Fade Way. I had very very high expectations for his new release since I have saturated myself in the depths of Demarcos past albums.

Album Review: Kendrick Lamars DAMN

I remember one time my friend showed me a song by Kendrick Lamar and my ears were not really adjusted to rap or hip hop music so it didn’t really affect me as much as I wanted it to. It was a great song but it didn’t remember the name of it but this was about a year ago

Now this is the first time since last year I have given him another chance. And this album is crazy good. I got so use to listening to it because my boyfriend would always play it over and over while we were doing homework and I could hear it through his headphones. At the start of the summer is when I had some downtime to play it and actually listen to the album, and it became one of the albums I like to listen to while I worked out.

The first few songs that caught my attention was YEH and ELEMENT. I think the reason why YEH attracted to me is because I really enjoy and crave the slow dreamscape of rap. This reminded me of how I would listen to The Internet and their album Ego Death and even Nonames Telefone album. Lamars album incorporates the mix of upbeat aggressive tracks and slow vulnerability. This album is incredibly lyrical and consistent through the production and musicality of the tracks.


As I listened to it another time I started to feel the emotional rawness and aggression of Lamar. In the first track BLOOD it features the Fox News clip over the controversy of him and his music being “bad for black culture” and “race relations”. In this album and tracks Lamar goes with force of the embodiment of aggression and questioning of his own faith, self ,and morality. It is just by the obvious bold titles of the tracks and words like FEEL, PRIDE, GOD, LOVE, FEAR, HUMBLE, and PRIDE there is a relation of these words that mean bold concepts such as politically, and morally. We struggle with this and Lamar showcases his own struggle of what to do with himself in this conflict. In the album you can hear the unhappynes and sadness of Lamar which brings the honestly and attraction of the lyrics and tracks.

In the music sense of he album the production and sound of the album is amazing. Cuts are crisp and transitional. And the bass works are amazing. A really interesting transition is in the song XXX.FEAT.U2, when lamars slow rap transitions to a more aggressive and fast pace to a hill slope down to the slow collection when Bono sings the lyrics 

It’s not place

This country is to me a sound of drum and bass

You close your eyes to look around

And other wonderful transition is with ELEMENT and the chorus comes into place. 


The tracks that I like from most to least is:

  1. YEH
  2. ELEMENT
  3. DNA
  4. HUMBLE
  5. FEEL
  6. FEAR
  7. XXX

This is a pretty hot album, really great to listen to chill or to not. There are so many bangers and Kendrick has now become a new artist in my library. I would give this album a 8, (remember just my opinion) 🙂 

Give it a listen, give music a chance.
