What I’m Listening To: May 2022

            You know that feeling when the weather warms up and you want to blast music like every day is a party? Where your daily drive feels more special because the sun is shining, the sky is a gorgeous shade of blue, and the radio is playing your song? That dancing in the kitchen, singing… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: May 2022

What I’m Listening To: April 2022

            The first quarter of 2022 seemed like a crawl musically. I found comfort in the old rather than the new, or sought out silence. April, at the very least, seems like a new note for the year ahead. A lot of my reoccurring artists make appearances on this list with some recent finds. I… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: April 2022

What I’m Listening To: March 2022

            March took its time finding a groove. Coming from a relatively quiet February, my musical moods constantly shifted this month as I discovered new and old connections. Some of them were directly tied with current events—finding a form of escapism through relatable songs. Others came and stole my attention in the way certain ear… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: March 2022

What I’m Listening To: February 2022

            When I say February was rough… I mean it was the kind of rough where I spent several days not listening to music. Not for comfort or emotional release. Not in the background. Nothing. I was ready and expecting the end results to be slim or full of repeats but, somehow, I did find… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: February 2022

What I’m Listening To: January 2022

Every year brings with it some hope: new songs and albums to be released, new artists to discover or debut, new sounds for any emotion, old trends or favorites to make a comeback into the rotation. As far as my January—the beginning of a new musical year of What I’m Listening To—we can already see… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: January 2022

What I’m Listening To: 2021 Honorable Mentions

            This has been my first full year of doing What I’m Listening To and, as many know, I committed early on to a series of rules to control what could be a list of every given song I enjoyed in a month. However, in cutting down each month to 20 songs, I’ve found that… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: 2021 Honorable Mentions

What I’m Listening To: December 2021

            Here we are: the end of another year, the end of our annual playlist of monthly songs, the end of a sound era. As far as November’s predictions went, I did spend most of December listening to Christmas music. (Soleil and I now have a five-hour holiday playlist). The radio gave me the hits… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: December 2021

What I’m Listening To: November 2021

Well…as far as predictions go, I got ‘acoustic indie’ and that’s about it for my November listening. The month was as dominated by trends as it was by a persistently gloomy mood and weather. The upside is we have plenty of amazing tracks; the downside is that most of these are quite depressing. That said,… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: November 2021

What I’m Listening To: October 2021

            October was a unique kind of exhausting, but music—in so many forms—kept me going. The month seemed to stretch on and pass by so quickly. Other than a few notable releases and discoveries, much of it was spent listening to favorite playlists (like my OcTerror Pumpkin Songs) and singles. This led to narrowing it… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: October 2021

What I’m Listening To: September 2021

            To be honest, September passed by in a bit of a quick haze. Whether that’s because I was adjusting to my new work schedule, trying to figure out a new sleep schedule, or managing my most basic self-care routine on top of that, I’m not sure. All of a sudden, it’s over. The upside,… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: September 2021
