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

What I’m Listening To: August 2021

If I had to describe my listening habits for this past August, it would be obsessive. It seemed like I found my favorite tracks within the first two weeks and listened to them on repeat, over and over, without the need or want to find something new. This, along with all of the additional albums… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: August 2021

What I’m Listening To: July 2021

               If July proves anything, it’s that I’m hard to make an algorithm for. It may be easier to pinpoint who my favored artists are than what songs and genres I jump between on a month to month basis. Recommending something I might like? I give it 40/60 odds at best. Like June, I had… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: July 2021

What I’m Listening To: June 2021

               Honestly, it’s a little hard to believe that one year ago, on a slight whim, I started this ongoing column based on my previous YouTube videos. While the format and purpose behind “What I’m Listening To” has mostly remained the same, the imposition of the rules and the addition of my little predictions has… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: June 2021

What I’m Listening To: May 2021

May was a good month musically. Not only are artists releasing major bops in anticipation of summer vibes and charts, but a lot of songs fit well into this emotional midpoint of my life where so many things are ending, maybe beginning, or waiting. We’re still in our depressing lyrics, upbeat rhythm phase, still holding… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: May 2021

What I’m Listening To: April 2021

            This month I’m grateful that I’ve established a monthly limit on song choices. Otherwise, April would be overflowing with a literal bounty of the music I discovered this month. Instead I had to curate the list down to our expected 20 and really think about which songs I listened to over and over again… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: April 2021
