Playlist: for over-the-ear headphones

As I previously mentioned, I usually prefer listening to music in album form. But I stand by the power of playlists, because compiling common emotional threads throughout different artists' songs can create a unique, personal, thematic experience when they flow together just right. I find this to be especially true in somewhat darker, maroon-sounding ethereal music; and so I present a selection of songs that make me feel like I'm either floating or sinking. Sometimes both. 

  1. Miguel, Wale, “Coffee”
  2. Rihanna, “Yeah, I Said It” 
  3. The Last Shadow Puppets, “My Mistakes Were Made For You”
  4. VÉRITÉ, “Sober”

  6. Drake, “Jungle”
  7. James Blake, “Retrograde”
  8. Radiohead, “Nude”
  9. Oasis, “Cast No Shadow"
  10. Beach Baby, “No Mind No Money”
  11. July Talk, “Guns + Ammunition"
  12. The New Basement Tapes, “When I Get My Hands On You”
  13. Arctic Monkeys, “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?”
  14. alt-J, “Breezeblocks”
