I never get on here anymore because I don’t have internet access except from my phone, but I figured I’d at least post this (8 days late). I hope everyone I used to talk to on here is doing well! Even if I don’t really talk to anyone on here much these days, hopefully I’ll be more active on here in the fall. Anyway, here’s what I listened to in May :).

Something that’s interesting to me are the vocal extremes the two artists who dominate my most-played songs list possess. Tom Krell/How to Dress Well’s almost angelic falsetto is a perfect contrast to Matt Berninger (of the National)’s silky smooth baritone. A surprise highlight of the month for me is Radiohead’s new album ‘A Moon Shaped Pool". I was immediately drawn into its mood by the shimmering tendrils of sadness weaving their way through each song, echoes of whispers, and ghosts of emotion that undulate through each lyric.

“I was starting to work with a bunch of different creative people and everyone has opinions of what something should sound like…and I was still trying to define my own sound. Refuse is kind of about not worrying about anyone’s input and just being honest and being yourself because that’s what makes you unique.”
