MYSTERY INCORPORATED (For the keep out signs always ignored, for the suburban air that rots like the benevolence of Coolsville’s citizens, for exorcising ghouls and unmasking the fakes. ) — a suburban gothic playlist for the meddling kids and their stupid dog.

You can now customize cover photos and descriptions on Spotify and I thought I’d share some of mine!

Sad Indie - A playlist for those lonely hearts that long for some rest and comfort.

The Heartbroken  - A playlist for those days where you just feel alone and want nothing but to lay in bed and cry. 

Cozy Indie - A playlist to match the feeling of big sweaters and fallen leaves.

Ghost Town - A playlist for those days when you feel nonexistent and just want to lay on the floor.

Seclusion - A playlist specifically made to calm anxiety and clear the minds that need a break from the rush of the world. All synthetic indie tracks with a vibe to match the calm of being underwater. 

Melancholy (NEW) - A playlist reminiscent of when you finally crawl into bed on a Saturday night after soaking your emotions in alcohol.

Later he saw Jesus move from tree to tree in the back of his mind, a wild ragged figure motioning him to turn around and come off into the dark where he might be walking on the water and not know it and then suddenly know it and drown.

i jammed a bunch of my playlists onto spotify finally

and here they are

when you’re disassociating in the shower after your partner broke up with you because you’re “too” queer, wondering if all your future relationships are destined for this end

for when you have a three hour drive south ahead of you to a city you’ve only been to twice, and you’re leaving poisonous grounds behind for a better and more unknown future

for when your entire understanding of intimacy and sex has been lit on fire and dumped into the garbage by purity culture and you’re afraid to go forward and afraid to go back, but either way you’re, like, SUPER horny

for when you’re trying to remember where you left your wings

for when your desire to cease feeling the bad thing is best expressed through semi-ironic coding jokes

for when the world’s just ended so you might as well play some good music that’s on-theme

for when, for some fucking reason, you made this playlist on 8tracks two years ago and cannot fucking grok why the hell you did but now you’re afraid to delete it lest you summon the wrath of Aesthetic Shrek

Finally can post again! Here’s something new. Thanks for listening. Like, comment, reblog if you’re feeling it. Follow me for more mixes.

i make too many to know what to do with so

the bars are closing // walking empty streets at 2am, not wanting to go home but having nowhere else to go

so close to magic // a mix made for running through the palace halls in an enormous ball gown just before the stroke of midnight

her lips tasted like pomegranates // persephone + hades slowly falling into love with each other with a dash of angsty indie movie, “something about the glimmer in his eye when he looks at u sidelong from the driver’s seat tells u he’s been seeing more than the rose garden u were pretending to be”

neverland // “come away with me, to a place where we can be anything we wanna be.” 

watercolor // 2pm on sunday, everything is soft and hazy and u can hear the beginnings of rain drizzling against the house, u drift in and out of sleep, wrapped in the softest blankets u own

sirensong // “true evil is, above all things, seductive.”

out of the black // songs for the village people

following an angel around // your car breaks down in a tunnel at 3am, you pull over and the lights begin to flicker. standing in front of you is a stranger, staring back. she has a faint glow like neon given flesh or maybe she’s an ethereal being, you can’t tell. she begins to walk away when you find yourself following her, all night, through the city.

iced coffee // for obnoxious, air-conditioned summer days

she’s only in dreams // for the girl they write songs about, the girl we all wanted to be

everything glows // you wake up to the sun on your face through the window, turn over to see them still sound asleep next to you, your limbs entangled. they look so happy, in their peace, and for a moment, you are too. you don’t know how you got so lucky to get to love them.

sugar-coated hallucinations // i don’t think i know what’s real or what’s in my head anymore, but i prefer it that way.

supermarket jams // songs that get me through trying to find the cilantro for two hours

moonlight!!! // for that night when the sky was clear and i could breathe the air coming in from the window, empty highways at midnight and city lights in the rearview mirror

weaponized // “they made you into a weapon and told you to find peace.”

an ode to fresh air // i spend a lot of my time not being able to breathe, this playlist makes it easier somehow

storm goddess // lifeforce runs through her veins, lightning crackling at her fingertips. when she cries, it pours. when she wills it, the sky breaks apart into thousands of shattered pieces. you tremble before her, but its nothing compared to the way the earth trembles at her word.

seventies dream girl // nostalgic synth-pop that makes me feel young and sweet, only seventeen

happy endings // for the road home
