Happy Friday, friends! I’m back today my first Monthly Soundtrack of the decade — and it’s one of my favourites in recent memory. Since we spent so much time traveling over the past month, I had to opportunity to discover tons of new artists and explore many different genres! My January 2020 Soundtrack is a 30 track playlist brimming with nearly 2 hours of relaxed, uplifting, inspirational tunes. From the snow covered Canadian rockies to the sandy beaches of southern Mexico, this new year soundtrack was blasting through my speakers (and headphones) all month long!
A handful of January’s stand out tracks include Mike Posner’s Slow It Down, Imaginary Future Float On (a dreamy, stripped down rendition of Modest Mouse’s original), Quinn XCII’s Always Been You, Brock Berringan and Allem Iversom’s Sometime, Judah & the Lion and Kacey Musgraves pictures, fantompower’s free (at ease), Freedom Fly’s Clint Eastwood (another gorgeous, instrumental cover!), Handbook’s Sweet Berries, Saib’s Aqua, ayokay and Nightly’s Sleepless Nights, Kyle McEvoy and Deeb’s Habitual Words, East Forest’s 10 Laws, Nina Nesbitt’s Toxic (apparently I was on an instrumental cover spree this month!), Catching Flies Komorebi and The Band CAMINO’s Daphne Blue (although I could go on!). Extend January’s motivations into February and beyond with my January 2020 Soundtrack!
It’s the last day of the decade — and after a very restful, unplugged week in the country celebrating the holidays, I’m back with the final Monthly Soundtrack of 2019! My December 2019 Soundtrack is a short n’ sweet, 20 track playlist that’s equal parts festive and relaxed — with a few hip-hop curveballs thrown in for good measure! It you’re looking for some great tunes to decorate your NYE plans as we get ready to ring in 2020, this playlist is for you!
This month I had a few modern holiday playlists on repeat, including, Indie Christmas 2019 and Modern Holiday — but also discovered a few standout tracks of my own during December! Bien’s The Best is yet To Come, Flughand and steichi’s fyrsta, lōland’s linus, Mtbrd’s Those Eyes, Tycho’s Stress, Regina Spector’s My Dear Acquaintance (A Happy New Year) and LOYAL’s Light Up For You were some of my most played tracks. If you’re in need of even more fresh tunes, check out my Spotify-generated 2019 Soundtrack, featuring my 100 most played songs from 2019! No matter what your plans are tonight, I hope you all have a fun, safe and happy New Years Eve! Thank you for spending a little bit of the last day of 2019 with me and for your continued support here at JustineCelina — it truly means the world to me. Wishing you all the happiest new year and fabulous decade ahead!
Music lovers, I’m back today with a fresh Monthly Soundtrack for your listening pleasure! My November 2019 Soundtrack is a laid back, easy listening playlist brimming with 2 hours of eclectic and inspiring tunes spanning genres that have been fuelling my creative endeavours this month! I’m also still on a bit of a jazz kick — there’s something about cold weather and the approaching holiday season makes jazz sound so good (especially in front of the fireplace with a glass of your favourite libation!). As 2019 winds down I’ve been busy finishing up various projects while gearing up for the holiday season — and I’ve had this playlist on heavy rotation. It makes for great thinking, creating, writing, relaxing and entertaining music!

How is it the end of October?! Another month has flown by — and that means it’s time for another Monthly Soundtrack here at JustineCelina! October was full of lots of BTS work fall content (including our Entrance Way Reveal!) — and these ultra chill, jazzy tunes are what kept me going. My October 2019 Soundtrack is a short n’ sweet 30 track playlist full of ultra chill, mostly instrumental tunes. I discovered Andrew Applepie’s Six Chill Beats EP along with Spotify’s Jazz Vibes playlist this month and I pretty much listened to them on-repeat — honestly, I could have added every single track! If you’re in the mood for some cozy, feel good tunes that pair perfectly with a smooth glass of red in front of the fireplace (something we did often this month!), you’ll find it here.
