Playlist : Lifetime Movie

New playlist time! November was a good month and apart from what the title of this playlist might indicate, most of the songs on my Lifetime Movie playlist are pretty mellow. So why Lifetime Movie? Well, I binged watched the recent Gilmore Girls revival that discussed Lifetime movies, and that triggered me going down a Lifetime Movie wormhole on YouTube. Some things just feel quintessentially fall and Lifetime movies are one of those things for me.

This may just be one of my favorite playlists to date. Enjoy!

Lifetime Movie Playlist : 1hr and 14mins | “Gamble” – Lucy Rose / “El Condor Pasa (If I Could) – Simon and Garfunkle / “California” – Joni Mitchell / “You’re Out Wasting” – Andy Shauf / “Denial” – I Break Horses / “I Gave Myself a Science Lecture” – Alligator Indian / “The Killing Moon” Echo & the Bunnymen / “Every Songbird Says” – Sam Beam, Jesca Hoop, Iron & Wine / “Katie I Know” – Marissa Nadler / “Boxer” – Lovers / “Same Mistakes” – The Echo-Friendly / “Hey Cool Kid” – Cloud Nothings / “Awkward” – FIDLAR / “Real Love” – Big Thief / “Paper Cuts” – Broadcast / “Porch Projector” – Ducktails / “Breathe (2am)” – Anna Nalick

Playlist : Team Apple Cider

It’s Autumn!! My favorite season of the entire year. I love the crisp cold air and the influx of east coast fall essentials that make no sense in Southern California. It’s been averaging 90 degrees this week but I won’t let a little thing like global warming prevent me from celebrating the most magical time of the year. As everyone else is getting jazzed on PSL’s aka pumpkin spice latte’s, I’m over on team apple cider. Never could get into pumpkin spice lattes, but cider is like a delicious apple orchard in my mouth. The catalyst for false memories of picking apples in a gorgeous orchard in my oversized sweater and chic leggings – cue the slow motion while I skip through the orchard with a basket of apples swinging in the air.

Enjoy this new playlist! 

 Team Apple Cider Playlist : 57 min | “Impossible” – Moon King / “Car – Water Version” – Porches / “The Past Tense” – infinite bisous / “Fill in the Blank” – Car Seat Headrest / “Wherever You Are” – Winter / “All I Know” – Still Corners / ” Lonely Richard” – Amen Dunes / “Give Up” – American Wrestler / “Ice Cream and Sunscreen” – Marth / “Take This Body” – Gill Landry / “Me, Myself, & I” – De La Soul / “New Friends” – Haybaby / “Filthy and Fried” – Drive-by-Truckers / “The Ledge” – Fleetwood Mac / “Divine Idylle” – Vanessa Paradis / “Rise” – Katy Perry

Drive At Dusk Playlist

This playlist is inspired by the golden hour, the California coast, and the magical feeling of driving at dusk. I personally hate driving west at dusk as you will be blinded by the sun. But it’s undeniable that there is a special something during the summer time when it’s 7:45pm and the sun is still peeking over the horizon with a cotton candy sunset.  This isn’t a beach wave inspired playlist, cause I’m not a huge surf rock fan – but it does remind me of long summer days as a teenager and the breath between day and night.

Drive At Dusk Playlist : 1hr 15min | “Come To Your House” – Bouquet / “Cherry” – Chromatics / “Kiss the Screen” – Nite Jewel / “For You” – Free Cake For Every Creature / “Free Time” – Teen / “Failling” – Bouquet / “Me and My Arrow” – Harry Nilsson / “In Limbo” -Teen / “In The Sun” – Hibou / “Under a Rock” – Waxahatchee / “Rattlesnake” – Fog Lake / “Outlaw” – Sweet Spirit / “Change of Heart” – TOPS / “I Want to Grow Up” – Colleen Green / “Without You” – Rainbow Arabia / “Le lac d’or (feat. Melody’s Echo Chamber) – Moodoid, Melody’s Echo Chamber / “Too Old to Be a Punk Rock Prodigy” – Free Cake For Every Creature / “Dissolve” – Hibou / “Lovers Rock” – TV Girl / “Art/ Work” – tomemitsu / “Chess” – Petite Noir

MADE YOU A MIXTAPE : PRICKLY PEAR

February wasn’t any easy month, but it was still filled with beautiful music and I was able to make you a mixtape. Aptly named “Prickly Pear” to channel the cute and the uncomfortable, it’s unintentionally female-driven with a few of my favorite fellas mixed in. Hope you enjoy some awesome tunes from the past and present that have been on repeat this month!

 

“Cinnamon” – Cullen Omori / “Princess Castle 1987” – Peach Kelli Pop / “This Is The Day” – The The / “Inner City” – So Many Wizards / “Seattle Party” – Chastity Belt / “Hollywood” – Lissie / “Ch-Ching” – Chairlift / “All The Things You Do” – Winter / “Calabria” – Moss Lime / “Duvan” – Amason / “You Kill” – Eternal Summers / “Waterfall” – The Fresh & Onlys / “Blue Flower” -Mazzy Star / “Shave My Pussy” – Chad VanGaalen / “Fly a Kite” – So Many Wizards

MIXTAPE : MUSUBI

It’s the last day of 2015 and this is my last playlist of the year. I’m so happy I started these post after being inspired by one of my fav chick-a-dees on instagram, Meghan Alfano. It was nice to always have a playlist in the works or something I could just put on when getting ready for the day.  Now I have a collection of my favorite songs from the year to look back onto and sort of see my moods throughout 2015. I will certainly be continuing my playlists in 2016.

p.s.  A musubi is a slice of spam surrounded by rice and wrapped in seaweed. 

What was your favorite playlist or music discovery in 2015? 

 

“Insanely Jealous of You” – The Soft Boys / “Ghost Rider” – Suicide / “Girlfriend In A Coma” – The Smiths / “When Lightening Starts” – The Three O’Clock / “Tweeker Kidz” – The Aquadolls / “I Love You Too” – Darlings / “Pepsi/Coke Suicide” – Elvid Depressedly / “FloriDada” – Animal Collective / “Isn’t It Love” – Babes / “Ride On” – The Shivas / “Eyes of the Muse” – King Tuff / “Hippie Hippie Hourrah” – Jacques Dutronc
