NOVEMBER 2O2O SOUNDTRACK


In need of some relaxing tunes for your next cozy evening in? Well friends, I have just the playlist! Indulge your ears in my November 2020 Soundtrack — featuring 3 hours of easy listening, ultra chill, electronic, jazzy, ambient, indie and alternative grooves to perfectly compliment a bottle of Pinot Noir in front of the fireplace. This familiar scene from our Living Room is what almost every single weekend evening has looked like since March — and although I do miss a lot of things about our life pre-COVID, I’m so grateful for this little piece of serenity amidst a chaotic world. I’ve come to treasure our quarantine Friday evenings when we put the fire on, open a bottle of wine and get lost in the world of music! MUSIC has always been an integral part of my life — and I hope my MONTHLY SOUNTRACKS bring you a bit of extra peace and joy to help ease these difficult times. These 56 tracks have been my musical therapy through a tumultuous month!

November’s standout tracks include Downtown Owl’s Okay, Made in M’s Wonderloop, Ganzo’s Happy Feet, TABAL’s Floating Hammock, Psalm Tree’s Lisbon Penthouse,  Norabel’s Pigments, Noé Solange’s Nocturnal Lady, Blue Wednesday’s Seafoam, Macleny’s Doors of Time, Satin Jacket’s rendition of Tycho’s Japan, Sofasound’s Life Is So Beautiful, C4C’s Flower Pillow, West & Zander’s Autumn Haze, Ash Walker’s remix of Kennebec’s Departure, Toby Schay’s moonkiss and Daithi’s How to Fall in Love in a Pandemic. Thanks for listening, friends!

OCTOBER 2O2O SOUNDTRACK


Happy Halloween, beautiful people! I’m back on this gorgeous, sunny autumn afternoon with my October 2020 Soundtrack — a soothing, 60 track, fall playlist brimming with instrumental, jazzy undertones. This month, in addition to my usual melange of cross category listening, I gravitated towards blissed out jazz — which seems to be a common theme year after year as we transition into cooler weather. Despite an unseasonably warm early October, we experienced our first snowfall of the season mid-month and enjoyed many a cozy evening infront of the fireplace with Spotify’s Jazz Vibes playlist streaming through the speakers. Of course, I added all my favourite tracks to October’s MONTHLY SOUNTRACK for your listening pleasure — and I’m elated to share over 3 hours of them with you today!

This month’s standout tracks include Kasbo’s Show You, Handbook’s In Subtle Bloom, Teen Daze’s Environments, Attom’s Lagoon, Lincoln Jesser’s Boba, DRAMA’s 7:04 AM, Hilo’s Don’t Go, David Cutter Music’s Float Away, Teeb’s Universe, Clubhouse’s Haunt You, Clear Blue Skies Golden, Nic Leng’s Music To Clean The House To, Antione Dufour’s beautifully stripped down rendition of Coldplay’s Talk, Bogdan Belyeav’s Wisdom 1:11, Mark Kroos’s Be Still & Know, Mesita’s I’m Considering Quitting Music, DROELOE’S Roadside Flowers, Grooveshine’s Pages, ford.’s Fruit&Sun, Sol Rising’s Surfin’, Brenky’s Otonbu, Shoffy’s You, filous’s Trying Not To Think About You, Petit Biscuit’s Midnight Sky, Nicolas Kluzek’s Blue as an Orange, Handbook’s Temporary, Board-Man’s guitar laden, instrumental rendition of Isn’t She Lovely and DEEB’s Golden Hour. Wishing you all a fun and safe Hallo-weekend, whatever you’re up to!

SEPTEMBER 2O2O SOUNDTRACK


My favourite month of the year has flown by, which means it’s time for another MONTHLY SOUNTRACK! My September 2020 Soundtrack is short n’ sweet, featuring an hour and a half of eclectic, feel good, easy listening tunes spanning genres. I actually spent the majority of the month pouring over my MUSIC archives and listening to my fall soundtracks from years past, rather than new music — and they transported me back to some amazing times! In fact, that’s the very reason I began publishing my monthly soundtracks here at JustineCelina 5 and a half years ago. I now have an extensive library of beautiful memories categorized by month — like a musical time machine to any specific season of life I choose. How incredible is that? As always, thank you for coming along on my musical journey as I share what’s pumping through my speakers each month to help to keep myself inspired, focused and happy. I hope you’ve also enjoyed listening to them as much as I have!

That said, my September 2020 Soundtrack is full of some beautiful new tracks I’ve had on repeat all month long! The Midnight’s Dream Away, Wrong For Me’s Otherwise Fine, Pretty Light’s Only Yesterday, Mon-Day’s Fly High, I See Colors Memories of You, Restless Beat’s Interest, Goth Babe’s Moments / Tides, Arlo Park’s Eugene, Jamie Drake’s Redwood Tree, Grady’s Garden (it seems I’ve had a track with GARDEN in the title every month this summer — I can’t wait to share more about ours later this season!), SUMif’s Walking Away, Luna Shadows malibu bb, ford’s In My Eyes, Handbook’s Careful and Sol Rising’s Beauty Everywhere. Wishing you a safe and healthy month ahead, friends!

AUGUST 2O2O SOUNDTRACK


As the final full month of summer comes to a close, I’m thrilled to bring you another MONTHLY SOUNTRACK! My August 2020 Soundtrack features a mash up of 60 tracks spanning genres from ultra chill instrumental to explicit hip-hop — an eclectic melange of tunes that have been pumping through my speakers all month long. I’ve been spending my days making the most of all this beautiful season has to offer while working away on lots of exciting projects and upcoming content (including a seasonally inspired SPACE REFRESH, which you can catch a glimpse of in this month’s album cover!) that I can’t wait to share with you as we transition into autumn. This nearly 4 hours playlist has been integral in keeping my ears (and mind) entertained and inspired this month as I putter away on various creative pursuits and enjoy the great outdoors!

There are so many wonderful artists and tracks to discover in my August 2020 Soundtrack — but a handful of my personal favourites include Croosh’s Prosecco, Colouring’s Ember, Work Drugs Never Say Die, Jacques Green’s remix of Two Hearts, Yoke Lore’s Fade Away, MGK & Blackbear’s my ex’s best friends, Cam Stacey’s remix of Free (my most played track of the month!), Teen Daze’s Open, Run The Jewels’ JU$T, Phoebe Bridger’s Garden Song, Lastling’s Verona, Alex Lustig’s Free Spirit, Petit Biscuit’s You, Nieve & Soul Chief’s Write This Down, ScHoolboyQ’s Crash, LYREE’s Collins Ave and BRONSON & ODEZA’s  CALL OUT.

JULY 2O2O SOUNDTRACK + THE PERFECT LINEN SUNDRESS


My July 2020 Soundtrack is undoubtedly my favourite of the year — and I’m so excited to share it with you today! This 33 track playlist features nearly 2 hours of ultra dreamy, uplifting tunes that have been decorating my summer days and keeping me inspired. MUSIC has always played a big role in my life and is inherently tied to my creative process, as I’m always listening to music while I work away on various projects before I bring them to JustineCelina. July was a very creatively fulfilling month with the perfect mixture of fresh scenery, local travel, lots of gardening and many photoshoots with our stunning Alberta prairies as a backdrop — and this feel-good soundtrack encompasses all the creative, happy vibes July was made of!

This month I could highlight every single track in this playlist as a favourite — so instead, I’ll just let you take a listen! As I did last month, I’m also infusing some STYLE content into this month’s Soundtrack and introducing you to my perfect linen sundress — which I purchased in 5 colourways and have literally been living in all summer long. If you’re interested in additional details, you’ll find them towards the bottom of the post, along with an update on when you can expect my Summer 2020 Lookbook, which I’ve been working away on BTS all month! (Canadian) friends, have an absolutely wonderful long weekend — and whatever you’re up to, I hope you all stay safe and well!

JUNE 2020 SOUNDTRACK + SUMMER FASHION FAVS


The first month of summer is drawing to a close — and that means it’s time for my June 2020 Soundtrack! June was an intense month as we moved into Phase 2 of our economic reopening in Calgary and also collectively experienced the largest civil rights movement in history. Amidst it all, we also decided to form a cohort with my family in rural Alberta and have been spending as much time enjoying the tranquility of the prairies as possible! We finally planted that Country Garden I’ve been dreaming about for years (posts to follow!) and it’s been quite a reflective, but healing, month. Over the years, these rolling hills and sunlit fields have always been where I come to feel grounded, creative and free. I’m so grateful for this magical, restorative place — now more than ever. Although COVID has brought with it many challenges, it’s also brought many gifts. In a time when the whole world feels like it’s on pause, I’m making the most of every last second by living and working intentionally, authentically and in alignment with my true self.

My June 2020 Soundtrack features just over 2 hours of ultra chill, easy-listening, instrumental tunes spanning genres — and also, a track from my nephew, DJBThomson, who’s foraying into the music world! A handful of my favourite tracks include Random Forests I Don’t Trust That Bird of Prey, Vladimir Martynov’s The Beautitudes, Headphone Activist’s Lazy, Shook & Ian Urbina’s Isolation, AK & Liam Thomas’s Peace of Mind, Late June’s Burning Slow, Dye O’s Uprising, iamlex’s Aurora, Tōth’s Copilot, Tom Kalani’s Target, Evin Iris’s Collapse Into The Light, Jose Mehlin’s Adjustments, Ghost of Summer’s Woodland Heart, UTAH’s Thirty Two, TOKiMONSTA’s Love That Never, Stan Forebee’s Skyshades, Wolf’s Play It Safe, Teen Daze’s Comfort and DJBThomson’s N!GHT SK¥ (Bass Version). Happy listening!

MAY 2020 SOUNDTRACK + LIFE UPDATE


Happy Friday eve, friends! My May 2020 Soundtrack is coming to you early this month — it’s been a bit of a grind over here as as deadlines for client work, content and taxes overlap. I’ve been working around the clock lately to get everything finished in time to head to the prairies this weekend to plant our Country Garden — and this playlist (plus lots of green tea!) have been pulling me through. In fact, it’s one of my favourite so far this year — featuring 46 inspiring, uplifting, motivating tracks spanning genres (I also had Spotify‘s Deep Focus playlist on heavy rotation!). I’ve been working away on tons of exciting new content BTS that I can’t wait to share next month and have really settled into a nice work-from-home workflow lately — things are definitely looking up!

Where do I even begin with my favourite tracks this month? I could actually list every single one — but if I had to choose, Geographer’s Slave To The Rhythm Work Drug’s Down the Shore, Weathertunes Wait For Me, Dead Horse Beats Never Too Late, Grønhaack’s Her Sleepiness, Gryffin x Noah Kahan’s Heavenly Father, Handbook’s South, Axel Mansoor’s The Other Side, Kayoh’s Northwind, Alex Baker’s Bloom, JR JR’s Cops, Presto! and SPEECHLESS’s Paradise, Glass Animal’s Dreamland, Avery Young’s Shifts of Light, Jordan Critz’s Eternity, Tom Misch & Tobie Tripp’s Day 5: For Carol, Medasin’s Slinky Man, Vacation Club’s Fire Goes Out, chitchat’s San Fransisco, Kid Froopy’s Easy Love, Purity Ring’s peacefall and Peal’s Essential Attitudes sounded especially good to my ears. I hope you enjoy May 2020’s musical stylings — and if you’re interested in a bit of a life update (plus a link for this dreamy dress!), you’ll find them near the end of this post. Have a lovely weekend, beautiful people!
