HAPPY NEW YEAR! Playlist No. 42

 

GUYS! HAPPY NEW YEAR! Holy whirlwind of life….I have been non-stop. Not to mention, January 1st was A Musical Mind‘s ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!? Wow. Amazing. I can’t begin to thank everyone for tuning in, staying super dedicated with following me and my crazy musical journey. Discovering new bands, music, shows, and more.. It means the world, and I am so grateful for you all! I definitely am guilty of not posting a whole bunch anymore, and having all the reasons why…but ya know, whatever. It happens – and hey, I’m here now! ;)

 

So, let’s get right into today’s playlist! I’ve been recently obsessed with this Seattle/NY based band: MDE IN HEIGHTS! Their dreamy, euphoric r&b-pop is melodic, enchanting and just plain mesmerizing. I can’t seem to get enough.

 

 

Some songs, you can listen to passively and completely forget about them…there are some that resonate with you, but only for a couple of minutes or so, after which they seem to disappear into the atmosphere. Then, there are songs that resonate through your whole body and when they end you dissolve with it. MDE IN HEIGHTS does exactly this to me, and hopefully to you too.

 

These tracks hit you. They captivate you. In the perfect moment, with the perfect emotion tagging along. This track, “Skylark Interabang?!, is one of those tracks.

 

Kelsey Bulkin‘s ethereal vocals float over Sufjan Stevens’ beautiful sample of “Concerning the UFO Sighting Near Highland, Illinois”. The track starts off simply with the Sufjan sample. Not only is this one of my favourite Sufjan songs, but with Bulkin’s soft, dreamy vocals…their sounds just melt together in an angelic, delicious concoction.

 

So, check ’em out below. I posted 7 of my favourite tracks at the moment and I’m sure I’ll post another playlist soon with more of their tracks I love!

 

Enjoy! And have the happiest Monday! xo

 

Playlist No. 40

 

Haaaaaapppppppy December 1st, and HAPPPPPPPY MONDAY! Only 24 days left until Christmas! Woo!

 

It’s been awhile hasn’t it? I hope everyone in the U.S. had an amazing Thanksgiving! Today’s playlist is a goodie. I hope you are ready to dance a bit, maybe even hum along to some catchy melodies…hopefully those Monday blues will slowly fade away!

 

Have a wonderful day, and enjoy! Xx

 

Sound Blanket Radio Show

Hey guys!

 

I know, I know…it’s been awhile – I’ve been royally slacking. I have no excuse. Just haven’t been good about updating and posting new content. My bad, my bad. But, that cat above makes it all better right? RIGHT.

 

So, anyways, moving forward….remember that time I got to do a radio show for a local station here in Charlotte? Finally, it has been posted to Sound Blanket’s website’s newly updated page. I’m super stoked! It was a blast to do, and I am really thankful that SB was gracious enough to let me host my very own radio show on their site. My favourite tunes, and a bit of fun chitter chatter in between. I loved doing it, and would love to host another one again in the near future for sure!

 

So sit back, relax and enjoy this mellow radio talk show host voice of mine……oh, and the music, duh! ;)

Have a wonderful Tuesday! Xx

Playlist No. 35 + Volcano Crowe

Hello dear friends!

 

Here’s my (late again, I know…I’m so sorry) Playlist for the week! I know I haven’t been that great with posts lately, but I’ve been in the middle of moving and lots of transition and change. It’s all so great!

 

 

Also, my pal Zac Farro of Halfnoise dropped his full-length LP: Volcano Crowe today! It’s a MUST HEAR. Seriously, sooooo stinkin’ good. The melodies, the harmonies, the instruments, the percussion….goodness, all so brilliant. You can go check it out on Bandcamp by clicking the album cover below!

 

 

Have a lovely Tuesday! xx

Playlist No. 34

YOU GUYS!!!! I apologize (a million times) for being late on my Monday Playlist! A day late….oops. Life has been so amazingly crazy, so so so good though! I am moving Friday into a new place along with spending a lot of time with my sweet boyfriend (yes, that’s correct, you read right.)…and well, WORK AND LIFE TAKE OVER!

Okay, enough of the dramatics, but really. Here’s the playlist, and it’s just one band I have been loving lately: Coral Bones! They simply cannot make a disinteresting song, at least in my opinion! Melodies, harmonies…guitar, vocals…all of it. So good.

So, here ya go, enjoy the tracks! Have a great Tuesday!
