April is on her way out — and to say I’m relieved would be an incredible understatement! April was a challenging month as we collectively spent the majority of our time in our homes, adopted new traditions, dodged curveballs (of which there were many!) and attempted to adjust to our new normal. I’ve definitely experienced extreme waves of motivation (and emotion!) during this pandemic — as someone who’s very Type A and a major planner, this has certainly been a lesson in learning not to place worth in productivity, allowing myself to slow down, giving myself some grace and just taking things as they come. Unsurprisingly, I turned to life’s simple pleasures to help me pull through — like cheerful blooms, great coffee and uplifting music! My April 2020 Soundtrack features just over 3 hours of everything I’ve had on heavy rotation lately to help me feel grounded, focused, calm and inspired.
Freedom Fly’s Tell Me It’ll Be Alright, Luna Shadow’s Palm Springs, Oliver Tank’s Dreams of Fish and Waterfalls, GHSTWRLD and Metaxas’s Everything, Day Waves Potions, Cards & Sitas All Over Me, Jack Larsen’s Vanity, Hello Meteor’s Kuroshio, NEIL FRANCES Tell Me, Brett’s Prom, Bad Snacks Elsewhere, Alle’s Islands and Blood Cultures x DJ ST THOMAS’s Best For You delighted my ears this month. If you’re in need of some fresh quarantunes (ha!), give the latest instalment of my Monthly Soundtracks a listen! Here’s to a brighter month ahead, friends.
