anonymous asked:

what are some coping/trauma related songs you would recommend?

hi friend! I’ve gotten a couple of asks about music, so I’m gonna answer them all here. everyone copes differently and everyone has different tastes, but here’s a few recs I have based on what has helped me. (I’m favoring folk/indie here though my tastes are usually more varied, because these are related to trauma/coping more explicitly)

“download immediately I’m begging you” tier:

  • The Sunset Tree - The Mountain Goats (if you already know this album, then it sounds like a given. it’s a staple for me. in fact I’m linking the single track, This Year, which got me through several years of my life. this album is explicitly about surviving abuse) 
  • linked here is A Better Son/Daughter, of off The Execution of All Things by Rilo Kiley (this one’s so good that i’m actually recommending a single track, which I never do because I prefer always to recommend albums. you might cry like a lot. I definitely did the first dozen times I heard this. also the rest of the album’s great too! more about relationships tho.)

if you only read this far, please listen to those two tracks! ^^^ <3 

“saved my life” tier:

  • Transcendental Youth also by The Mountain Goats, would be my very next rec, if you want to feel like your life and your suffering are real and valid. (give the track Spent Gladiator II a listen!)
  • Lanterns - Son Lux (not about trauma, still helped me hang on by a thread when it was Bad. shameless plug, it’s patently my all-time favorite album)
  • Feel Good Ghosts - Cloud Cult (this is a Happier album that is literally about Surviving when you think you can’t anymore, it’s a little psychedelic and weird tho)
  • look friends, there is nothing wrong with a little Black Parade or Simple Plan for when it Hurts (Gerard Way and that cohort did it right all right?) This was middle school for me but this genre saved my life when I was that age

“gets me through it” tier: 

  • Neon bible - Arcade Fire (track “my body is a cage” is always stuck in my head and encapsulates That feeling perfectly)
  • Good News for People Who Like Bad News - Modest Mouse (feeling bitter? this is for you!)
  • anything by Sufjan Stevens (the album Carrie & Lowell might be the most relatable, but I also love Age of Adz, All Delighted People, and Illinois. this melancholy folk singer-songwriter is my favorite artist ever maybe)

ANYWAY! that’s everything I can think of for now. thanks for reading this far, and if anyone wants like, a playlist instead of albums, let me know! that would be more varied in genre/style. or, send a genre and I can find stuff within that. 

hope you’re having a great day!

anonymous asked:

Hello lovely! Do you have a go-to song when you're having a truly awful day?

If I’m angry I’ll listen to “Unsubstantiated Rumors” by Against Me. If I’m sad I might listen to “Better Son/Daughter” by Rilo Kiley.

I Wanna Get Better - A Taagnus mix from Taakos point of view, from not wanting to be loved, to admitting thats what he wants, to realizing that he’s in love himself.

Tracklist: 

Romance Is Boring - Los Campesinos! (you and I, we are nothing alike

Heartilation - AJJ (there’s no one to love, there’s no one to trust in my life

The Feud - The Front Bottoms (I was so bored before i met you)

Autoclave - The Mountain Goats (when I try to open up to you I get completely lost

I Like That You Can See It - Girlpool (soft hands on my face, and I’m feelin’ nothing

I Wanna Get Better - Bleachers (didn’t know I was broken ‘til I wanted to change

More Adventurous - Rilo Kiley (get loved, make more, try to stay alive)

This Hearts On Fire - Wolf Parade (It’s getting better all the time)

Accidentally in Love - Counting Crows (well baby I surrender)

I2I - Tevin Campbell (maybe love is the reason why
