concept playlists;

you’re lying on mossy forest floors, slowly transforming into a nymph, your fingers are turning into flower vines, your limbs are bleeding honey & growing thick skins of sepia bark, wings sprout in between your shoulder blades. your breath sounds like the wind. fireflies litter the air above you

you’re hold up in an abandoned church, outside there’s a raging storm & a horde of zombies roaming around, pressing up against the entrance doors. you & a small band of survivors are staying inside for the night in hopes to ride the bad weather out. you take first watch & listen to these tunes on an old ipod while everyone else tries to get some rest & the undead crawl outside, awaiting the taste of human flesh.

you’re in your boyfriend’s pickup. he’s asleep in the passenger seat, you’re driving without a destination in mind & you have the window down as you let the cool night air whip against your face in a state of pleasant delirium

you’re on a rooftop somewhere, there’s 5 am air on your skin, streetlights glint like coins at the bottom of wishing wells from where you sit. you’re feeling peaceful for the first time all week

you’re lying in the middle of a crop circle forty miles from your grandma’s old house waiting for aliens to come and abduct you

it’s four pm in the afternoon and you’ve got your head in the lap of the only boy you’ve ever loved & you’re reading jane eyre & he’s sipping on tea & it’s the kind of weather where it’s just warm enough for you to pretend it’s summer & it’s drizzling & you’re listening to the rain beat softly against the windowpanes

you’re curled up in bed as it pours outside, there’s a citywide blackout and the last candle you had left has finally blown out, but you feel strangely at peace within the warm, all-consuming dark

you’re making out in the bathroom of a house party with someone that makes you feel like you’ve swallowed the sun

you’re standing amidst a city you burned to the ground. the apocalypse has come & gone. all that’s left is ashes & mortar & sad bones but you’re feeling empowered. a slow smile creeps up your lips as you realize how you’ve always wanted to watch the world burn

you wander into wonderland and now you’re suddenly being crowned fairie queen, apparently there’s a prophecy waiting to be fulfilled 

it’s mid morning but it’s dark outside from the rain. you thought the tapping on the window was from the rain but it’s actually a crow that flickers out of sight when you look directly at it

you’re sipping on cherry cola by the pool on a lazy sunday & you’re feeling younger than you’ve ever been

you’re summoning old ghosts in an abandoned parking lot on a smoggy thursday night

i’ve seen these concept playlists going around and i really wanted to give them a shot so here you go

you’re drinking a strawberry shake in a busy 1950′s styled diner when someone cute walks in and time seems to slow down 

you’re stoned on a rooftop staring up at the stars with someone who makes your hands sweaty (in a good way though)

you’re driving really fast on a bridge at 3 am and your heart is too full for your chest

you were so angry that you punched a hole in the wall but now you’re just hollow and numb and your hand hurts really fuckin bad (but it’ll be alright because your hand will heal and things will get better)

concept playlists part ii

it’s the year 2077 & you’re at a nightclub in tokyo with your best friend, you’re both on the run from a group of rebels but you feel safe in this little neon corner of nowhere so when a robot waiter offers you a strawberry daiquiri you accept it

you’re a tourist on mars & you’re trying to contact home but the signal is really crappy so you just end up buying yourself an icecream sundae & waiting in this strange alien queue to buy an interstellar sim card

you’re in a small virginian town that was wiped off the map several years ago housesitting for a mysterious neighbor when you find a secret passageway in their library, you have no idea where it leads but you’re curious to take a look 

you’re in victorian england & you’re walking down a path adorned with the warm aureate glow of gaslights & it’s snowing softly & you have your hands buried deep in your coat pockets while somewhere in the distance, someone announces that the queen is dead

you meet god at a gas station at 3.03 am & he asks you if you want to go for a motorcycle ride with him & when you say yes he warns you that he’s about to introduce you to things you can never unknow 

you’re in love with a ghost who shows up in all your household mirrors & keeps turning off the kitchen light but one night you realize that you’re the one that’s been doing all the haunting 

it’s a rehab centre for celestial beings, where angels with dying halos flitter past & talk to you of stars, you love working this job, learning about the woes of a dozen flighty beings, & they endow you with their strength & light in return

you’re stuck in a time loop inside of a 80′s horror flick and your entire world feels like it’s glitching around you nothing is real except for your strange lover with eyes like moonlight calling you to come back to bed 

you’re at an island at midnight all by yourself, the night sky is so clear the sea reflects the star-matted sky, a salty breeze lifts your hair, you breathe in deep & dream of someone beautiful coming to your rescue

Hey guys! I’ve had a lot of people asking about the kind of music that inspires my art, so here are a couple of the playlists I’ve been listening to while I work:

Crisp Autumn vibes and a little bit of mystery. The smell of dead leaves, wet wheat, and far-away smoke. Listen here: Bright Leaves, Cold Air

Eerie tunes and strange sounds from the dark. A black dog at the edge of your headlights, a pale hand reaching out from the tall grass. Radio static in the middle of nowhere. Listen Here: It’s Dark Out

She’s Gay, Dude

Know Your Name - Mary Lambert // Only a Girl - Gia // Ease My Mind - Hayley Kiyoko // All of Me - Luciana Zogbi // Rude - Madilyn Bailey // Daisy - Zedd // Like Real People Do - Ilia Kate // Paradise Is You - La Roux // Take Me to Church - Ellie Goulding // Closer - Tegan and Sara // Sex - Lauren Aquilina // Rhythm of Love - ukulelemily // Tell Her You Love Her - Echosmith // She Will Be Loved - Dani Shay // Hey Girl - Lady Gaga & Florence Welch // She Keeps Me Warm - Mary Lambert // Let Her Go - Arden Cho // Jenny - Studio Killers // Drove Me Wild - Tegan and Sara // She - Dodie Clark // I Do Adore - Mindy Gledhill // Girls Like Girls - Hayley Kiyoko // Girlfriend - Icona Pop

Unusually Wondeful Spotify Playlists

Spotify is a fantastic place to find and discover new and old music, but it can also be a wonderful source of literature, audiobooks, and old radio shows. As a fan of all of these things, I have put together a list of some of my favourite non-musical playlists!

Scary Stories
Everything from Poe’s the Raven to some good, old-fashioned spooky late night radio! Very good for fans of podcasts/audiobooks like Lore, the No Sleep Podcast, etc.
Mythologies
Explore the stories behind your favourite myths including Greek gods and legends, Buddist mythologies, Britannic classics such as Arthur, and Egyptian Afterlife stories!
Love Poems
A beautiful collection of love poems from classic authors like Shakespeare, Walter Raleigh, and more!
Fairy Tales
A collection of full fairytales, all by Hans Christian Anderson and including The Mermaid, the Little Match Girl, and The Snow Queen!
The Adventures of Sherlock Homes
Select adventures of Londons Favourite Detective, and including some pretty amazing vintage radio adaptations!
The Essential Edgar Allen Poe
Great for research projects, this playlist includes the very best of the famously frightening poet Poe. (I love his work but lack the focus to read it on paper, so this playlist has been a godsend for several English projects and papers!)
Jane Austen
This is a massive playlist, including the entirety of the Pride and Prejudice audiobook, sense and sensibility, persuasion, and more! It also includes poetry and film scores from Austen adaptation.
The HP Lovecraft Compendium
23 hours and 14 minutes of love craft’s spokes and mind bending-est stories read aloud to you by some fantastic Narrators. 
A Hipsters Guide to Poetry
Ever seen and amazing poem quoted on Tumblr? It’s probably on this playlist. Sylvia Plath, Walt Whitman, and Robert Frost are all included.
SciFi Radio Dramas
Classic Science Fiction, like 20000 Leagues Under the Sea, 1984, and the War of the Worlds turned audio play for vintage radio and coming to your late night study session now!
Women’s Lit
Maya Angelou, Virginia Wolfe, Mary Shelly and More are included in this playlist, their poems and short stories. 
Irish Lit
Explore classical and contemporary Irish novels, short stories, plays, poems, and lore in both English and Irish Gaelic! Learn and practice the language at the same time as you discover the countries culture.
Shakespeare: The Poetry
His sonnets and poems, all of them, read aloud to you by a number of talented performers. 5 Hours of Shakespeare to put you in the writing mood!
French Literature
Hugo, Balzac, Dumas and more! French short stories and novels, now in audio form! Explore classics of French literature while you do laundry!
Shakespeare: The Comedies
Shakespeare can get notoriously gloomy, what with all the murdering and tragically ridiculous misunderstandings he features in some of this plays. But explore his bright, innocent, and summer side with hi classic comedies!
The Victorians
Explore the sensibility of the Victorian era through some if its best poetry: brooding, sceptical, romantic, whimsical, and nonsensical. 
Sylvia Plath
Everything you’ve ever wanted in a beautiful playlist. “Hear the voice that penned the poems.”-Spotify.
Poems for Spring
Beautiful poems read vintage and modern style, celebrating the innocent light that emerges in the spring!

So there you have it! This is by no means a complete list of playlists containing this kind of content, I know for a fact that most public domain books/ audiobooks are available on here! Happy Listening!

My { spotify }

it’s that feeling you get right before you jump off a swing- the rush, the exhilaration- so close your eyes, take a breath, and jump

everyone draws sharpie tattoos; maybe it’s because sometimes we all crave something fun and not permanent once in a while

dance with me at midnight in the light of our neon glow sticks

dandelion fluff floating in the wind, an orange sunset, fireflies blinking all around you - yeah that’s what these three bands make me feel like

you know you listened to the ‘emo’ music, and you know you still do because screw society’s opinion, these songs got you through crap

when you’re seventeen and wearing a sundress for no other reason than you want to even though it doesn’t go with your converse

the ending scene in 80’s movies where the car drives off, the people are smiling and happy, and that song takes over as the credits start rolling

sometimes you’re sad, and that’s okay

clear skies and and deep breaths, that joy that makes you so glad to be alive because the sun exists and the air and the wind, and you’re just happy

roll the windows down and sing as loud as you can with your friends as wind whips around you

Alice and Wendy are spit out of their worlds, meetup, and try to survive this screwed up place between wonderland and neverland… by any means necessary

I do not have a crush. I just happen to think of you and me together whenever I hear these songs.

have you ever considered what converse sound like?

my head is a screwed up place, so I blast this until I can’t hear myself think

concept playlists i

walking back from a lover’s apartment, it’s 1 am, and you don’t know how to say you’re not in love. the sky is purple and you sit down on a bench outside. 

it’s between autumn and winter, the skies are gray, and the leaves are golden and crimson. the boy you love brushes your hand. you want to lay in his bed and listen to the wind. 

you’re an expat in paris. you drink coffee at a cafe on the seine and watch beautiful parisian women stroll by. the air is crisp and sweet. 

concept playlists bc I love this idea

you’re a space pirate captain but it’s also the 80′s and you’re wearing glam rock trousers and a billowing shirt. Some freaky aliens just boarded your ship but it’s okay because they’re here to party

You’re in a post apocalyptic version of the wild west. You stumble across a dusty townscape and into a saloon bar. You are a black hatted, spurs wearing, gun toting assassin. The chatter goes silent as you darken the doorstep. You sling your electric laser pistol across the bar and demand a whiskey

You study English lit or history at Oxford University. You wear tweed and waistcoats and it’s inexplicably always autumn. Everyone thinks you’re really pretentious but really you’re just trying to get over the death of your best friend who drowned in the river and who you had feelings for but never got to tell them

You are an ageless vampire or maybe a ghost and you spend your days wafting around your castle. You fling yourself down on a red velvet day bed in despair. You’re sad and drinking wine in the dark and you want to wallow for a while to miserable tunes while reading poetry and thinking about your dead lover 

It’s 3am and it’s raining and maybe you’re in a car or at a fast food restaurant but nothing seems quite solid. You think perhaps the lady you just spoke to was your guardian angel but maybe she wasn’t even real and maybe you aren’t either

some punk playlists for cryptic occurrences and general weird shit you cannot explain

1.  You wake up in a cabin in the woods and the only other thing in the room with you is a very tired looking werewolf in a UPS uniform. He regards you with disinterest, and keeps drinking his Red Bull. He seems alright. Not great, but okay.

2.  You buy a 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer from a guy in a blank red baseball hat who has a cigarette in his mouth but the smoke he blows out is black and you feel vaguely like you did in third grade when your teacher read the class That Book about the pants that came back to life.

3.  You join a beer league softball team. The pitcher has an eye missing, and it’s always bleeding. He doesn’t care. The left fielder is a lizard man. Nobody notices. He’s pretty good and hits a triple. You give him a high five.

4.  You hail a taxi by accident. You’re in the middle of the desert. You have no idea where it came from. You get in. The driver is a woman with really long fingers. They are wrapped around the steering wheel like snakes. She smiles, and asks you where you’re going. You say San Diego. She takes you to Eureka instead.
