Do You Listen to Music at Work?

Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t. I get too distracted by my favorite auditory medium- podcasts- so music provides a nice background noise while I tap tap tap away at my keyboard, as one does. During the most basic tasks I can jam along to Kesha, Macklemore, and Miley Cyrus (recently at least), but for more focused work I rely…

Listen Up

There are periods of time when I am obsessed with a single artist or song, and times where I am really into one genre. Lately though, I’ve been feeling less of those intense emotions towards music. Maybe I’m just mellowing out, but I doubt it because this post-college life definitely feels crazy. I thought I would share some of those…

Retreat Recap + Playlist

This past weekend, four of us hopped into the car and bypassed the Gilroy Garlic Festival (though not its traffic-*sigh*) in favor of a weekend in Santa Barbara. It was three days of lounging on comfy white duvets, munching on homemade bread topped with TJ’s everything bagel spice, slurping up espressos, boogie boarding, snapping photos (in my case, endless amounts),…

What I’m Listening to Now

Francois and the Atlas Mountains – Perpétuel Eté If anyone wants to take a similar photo to the one above, hit me up because it looks so fun! Maybe in the winter time when it’s cold enough to wear sweaters again. Or we could meet in San Francisco, where summers are always reliably cold. Anyway, the sweater-connected folks above are…

Laid-Back Work Playlist

Hello worker bees! Need a mid-week pick-me-up? Here’s my current work playlist, exciting enough to keep me interested, but generally happy and low key enough to have in my ears even while thinking critically about freshwater quality (in my case). Note: it might require a couple listens to become background noise, especially for the songs your brain hasn’t heard yet.…

A Playlist We’re Looking Forward To

  All of us rad-ish writers have different things going on this summer, but one thing we all fit into our summer plans was to spend a weekend together in July to hang out, brainstorm about the blog, and soak up some much needed California sunshine (Santa Barbara, to be specific). For the drive up (or down, depending on who…

Five Road Trip Jams for Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day weekend is coming up, and you know what that means: beer on the beach, camping trips, barbecues or backpacking. If you’re loading your cooler into your car and hitting the road, you’ll need a sweet road trip soundtrack to get you going. Here are a few songs to get your playlist started.

If You Like This, You’ll Probably Like That

If you’re looking for new music but don’t want to wander too far from what you already know you like, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve put together several song recommendations below based on artists that you might already know and be familiar with. Some of the recommendations are based on real life events. For example, Jamie Lawson opened…

Why Are There So Many Ghost Songs?

I can’t answer that question. But it’s true that a lot of my favorite music artists have recorded songs referencing ghosts. The spooks seem to have captured their attention, and who am I to complain? Here is a list of my favorite ghost songs: A Haunted House Jon Bellion Ghosts Laura Marling The Ghosts That Haunt Me Crash Test Dummies Ghosts The Head and the…

Situational Songs for the Spring

  Asking what I’m listening to is almost like asking how I feel. In the spirit of that and in celebration of some sunny weather, here are some songs I’ve been enjoying and the situations I’ve been listening to them in.   When the sun is out – FINALLY Synapson – Djon Maya Maï Feat. Victor Démé (Listen here) This…
