Playlist 34: traditions live or die by our frail hands edition

Hey kids and fake adults and self-soothsayers. I haven’t made a playlist for a million years, for a million different reasons, none of which I’m going to address. Other entries in other places are dedicated to my forlorn words. This right here is for music and good luck and light and the illusive beast known simply as the weekend. So here we are again, in the spring in the heat and the breeze and the rain if we get very lucky. Keep your fans blowing, your allergies in check, and try to enjoy the greening trees around you. Merry weekend to all, and to all a good Friday night.

1. Say Hi to your Mom – Blah Blah Blah (Cute sad fun morbid soft indie dance party)

2. Broken Bells – The High Road (Chill, nice beats, interesting electronic touches and harmonies)

3. Love & Rockets – Haunted When the Minutes Drag (Sounds like ’80s Depeche Mode in the best ways. Seriously, how is this not ’80s Depeche Mode? Also is this band what that one futurama episode is named after? I bet it totally is.)

4. Caravan Palace – Star Scat (E.L.E.C.T.R.O ~ S.W.I.N.G)

Playlist 16: Mad Rad Curation Edition

16 used to be my favorite number for years. I dunno if it still is, I think 4 might be now. But 16 is divisible by 4 so that works. Oh man, I’ve been working all damn day, seriously, since I woke up until now at 5am I have done very little else. @__@ BUT! I’ve gotten a lot done. I did take bit of a break to go to the store earlier, and buy some embroidery supplies because I feel like doing some weird random needlepoint. Hell yeah, trying new hobbies. Hell yeah, using new hobbies as a way to procrastinate! Anyway, it’s officially Friday, and we have a play to go to tonight which will hopefully be fun. It’s a comedy Picasso at the Lapine Agile. Anyway, I think this is a pretty fun lineup of songs for this playlist. hope everyone has a lovely weekend, including myself. *knocks on wood* *but very softly so as not to wake my boyfriend up with weird random knocking*
