Queen - Love of my Life :I've been fucking obsessed with Queen ever since I watched the Bohemian Rhapsody movie a month ago and this is one of my top favorites. Obviously I ADORE Freddie's voice in every song but idk, the combination of his vocals and the instrumentals and lyrics just pull at my heart strings. Also I'm always a sucker for melancholy sadder songs lol.
Reachin’ - A New Refutation of Time and Space (Digable Planets/ 1993): everything. this album is politically powerful, yet at the same time it fosters a sense of positive connection with the world and others within it. The artists all have an insect alter-ego, which really speaks to the creativity and reimagining that they all did through this album! this is some utopian imagining, hence the title “reaching”~ reaching toward a different and free world
Theory of Colours, Dauwd
III by Banks: I just really love the blending of genres in her work. This album is kind of like an abstract view of my own feelings and I can listen to it all the way through without skipping
HONNE - Warm On A Cold Night : It took up my whole entire senior year. I would listen to it religiously in my art class (and honestly everywhere). My teacher would ask us what we wanted to listen to in class and he eventually didn't even have to ask me. it just hits me in a way i never experienced with any other song. listening to it at night while you doing nothing else is the best way to enjoy it.
Don't Let the Kids Win by Julia Jacklin: songwriting is incredible I haven't heard anything this good in a long time
Wonderful Ass - Prince ( purple Rain) expanded edition: It’s a song with one of the catchiest hooks I’ve heard. Prince changed the way I looked at love songs and the role of sex in relationships. This song is mostly just steamy and unapologetically raunchy lol!!! But when the beat drops, I just wanna dance until the end of time. You can play this at any party!!!
Mickey Avalon Self Titled Album
"same old blues" - eric clapton: absolutely wonderful to listen to while high. blast it and sit back and be taken over by the blues for 8 minutes
Into The Night by Benny Mardones: It reminds me of my Aunt and when she was my age during the seventies! My Mom once told me it was the kind of music she [my Aunt] listened to. Feels almost like it’s 1980 and a boy recorded it on a mixtape for me! <3
something wild - radiator hospital: if a babbling brook were a song
I wanna be adored - the storm roses: Holds so many memories for me personally and is a song to be played in endless loops and dance to with doors closed and singing at the top of your lungs . Builds up slowly from the baseline then comes the electric guitar and ooooooff when the beat kicks in ... its a while mutherfcking experience
Honey - Robyn: The production of this album is subliiiime. robyn said she found inspiration from house music, songs whose beat and sound you listen to in the moment, rather than the trajectory of traditional pop that leads up to the chorus. tooo good
Jane Says, Jane's Addiction: So chill, so vibey, love listening to it in the shade while painting
The Life and Times of a Paperclip by The Garden: I generally love The Garden and their unique take on music, this just happens to be my favorite album.
The Birds Outside Sang (album) by Florist: it is super sad. but it carried me through a super tough time and their voice is angelic and soft. the songs have lyrics i think a lot of people could find meaning in and it truly transports you to another world.
Frank by Amy Winehouse: It is the most pure, authentic, and honest album I've heard so far. I listened exclusively to it for about three months straight after the first time I listened to it. Amy is so amazing and one of the most real women in the media in my opinion.
dragon lady ~ the geraldine fibbers it brings out every emotion in me, even the ones buried deep inside and the ones i don’t understand. it makes me feel everything and nothing at the same time
Blood by Kelsey Lu: I can’t describe the music so that makes me like it a lot
Chariot by Beach House: This song caresses me... makes me smile and cry and just feel everything. Its like happy tears, eyes closed floating in water, 5 am cool morning bike rides, strolls in crisp fall October air. I've listened to it for days on repeat and I can never get enough.
