The Weekend Post | 08.29.15

It’s been a pretty decent week here. That is minus the smoke that has filled the sky all week. The wind has blown over the smoke from the forest fires in Washington and BC and made the entire city full…

August Playlist

This month, I have had a new appreciation for music. I have been reminded how much I need it in my life, how much I need it to motivate me, to lift my spirits, to feed my soul. Like every…

July Playlist

This month, I’ve been on a bit of nostalgia kick when it comes to my music choices. I’ve been testing out Apple Music, and have been reminded of a lot of great songs from my youth. If you’re following me…

Leon Bridges, Coming Home

A few weeks ago there was a musical guest on The Tonight Show that I had not heard of before. For the most part, I watch for Jimmy Fallon, so I don’t usually continue to watch until the end if…

I Know That You’re a Sucker for Anything Acoustic

What is it about the acoustic guitar that makes a song sound so different, and really if we’re being honest, so much better? When I was thirteen, I really got into music. I started to expand my tastes from the…

Death Cab for Cutie, Kintsugi

{source} Years ago, when I was still buying physical CDs (which I never thought would be a thing of the past), I had a special ritual every time I bought an album. I would sit on my bed, press play…
