I’m doing weekly round-ups now, which will include any media I consumed for the past week, from Saturday to Friday Sunday to Saturday (changing days now but this post would cover eight days so I can shift to the new schedule of this post being up on Sundays). I’d be glad if you end up getting some recommendations but I’m only doing this as a form of a media journal (to make it easy to write reviews later on). And fine, an actual journal too. Here goes!

So I thought of doing weekly round-ups from now on, which will include any media I consumed for the past week, from Saturday to Friday. I also aim to talk about them, especially kdrama episodes I’ve seen for the week, all in one post. I’d be glad if you end up getting some recommendations but I’m only doing this as a form of a media journal (to make it easy to write reviews later on). And fine, an actual journal too. Here goes!

It’s the last day of the month so it’s time to share the tunes that I were into!
This month saw me driving alone for the first time so of course I had around an hour of alone time in the car at least three days a week. Which means most of the songs here are the ones played on the radio so a lot of EDM, which honestly I don’t really listen to slash seek out? But since listening to the radio calms me down while driving (I AM VERY PANICKY BUT THEN AGAIN, DUH, I AM AN ANXIOUS PERSON), I chose to tune in to the station that plays current pop songs. I end up belting and singing along too much when I tune in to the ~oldies~ station that I get distracted from driving? Maybe I can finally tune in to the classics when I become better at driving. Hehe. (In other news, I over-reversed last night and banged my car on a wall. Damn.)
Anyway, here it is!
Even though LANY just released their debut album today, it has a lot of LANY tracks because I LOVE LANY AND I’M SO HAPPY THAT WE HAVE NEW SONGS!!! And of course I also love Mating Ritual and he finally released his debut album so YAAAAAAAS HE’S HERE DEF.
I practically put all of the songs Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato are featured on this playlist. And ugh, Selena Gomez with Bad Liar, I tried so hard to resist it but it’s so addicting! Anyway, favorite discovery is Daniel Caesar’s Get You featuring Kali Uchis, all thanks to Sarah. And Lou Lou by Albin Lee Meldau care of Dawn.
Sadly, no Bleachers because I gave up halfway with the album. It just wasn’t clicking with me. Maybe next month I’ll try listening to it again and maybe I’ll end up liking it better?
Hope you enjoy! And do share songs you think I should listen to!
This post has been sitting in my drafts for so long I almost ended up not writing it because it’s not relevant to my headspace anymore. But when I was about to delete the draft, I felt sad (and mostly like I’d disappoint Jay because I told her I’ll write it) and now here we are, spouting possible word vomit. You’ve been warned. (Jay, you’ve been warned. Nothing fruitful in here.) Continue reading “Your love was handmade for somebody like me”→
It’s the last day of May and I thought I’d share my monthly playlists from now on!
This one has 26 songs in it and is mostly composed of new releases from artists I already follow (San Cisco, Harry Styles, Miley Cyrus, Ed Sheeran) and new discoveries (Wolfie: I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO WOLFIE FOREVER AND EVER, DEFINITELY A NEW FAVE).
I didn’t plan it but the general vibe of this playlist seems to be a MOMOL/make out one. I only realized it last Saturday when my friend Sarah was at my apartment and she was taking a bath while I was cooking and this mix was playing. I suddenly felt awkward having someone listening to the mix with me because it felt like there was a ~mood~ I was perpetuating??? HAHAHA Putting Wolfie in there definitely skewed the playlist in that direction because THAT VIBE!!!!! But then again, any playlist with The Weeknd on it feels like it’s for make out sessions, right? Hahaha!
Of course there are exceptions such as 7 Things and Malibu by Miley Cyrus (ended up revisiting some of my faves from hers after the release of Malibu) and the Kendrick Lamar tracks, although I can even argue that the Kendrick Lamar ones definitely fit with the mood. Haha!
I have been obsessed with this song for days now. I keep on playing it in my uke and it’s all I listen to, honestly. On repeat. Forever. It’s just so chill. Then when I listen to the stripped version, my heart breaks. I mean, the lyrics are sad but because of the beat and its vibe, I don’t feel sad when I listen to it. But the stripped version, AAAAAAAAAAAAAaa. Which is closer to this video I posted because this one’s a live performance.
Enjoy! I’m trying to listen to LANY’s other songs but I keep coming back to ILYSB so I’ll just do that someday else. Hihi.
While I was on Spotify (when am I not on Spotify?), I was, as usual, trying to discover new-to-me artists via the Discover tab. And once again, Because you listened to Hippo Campus led me to this wonderful indie-pop band, BAD BAD HATS.
Right from the start of the album opener Midway, I knew I’ll love this band and their songs. I haven’t been kind and into indie-pop acts with a female vocalist with those airy, childlike and sweet vocals for so long. Twee! Yes, that’s how it’s called. But even though Kerry Alexander definitely fits that bill, I really dug what I initially heard so I continued listening to their debut LP Psychic Reader. And guess what, I haven’t stopped listening to it! WHY DID I ONLY DISCOVER THEM TODAY?
Oh, Malô is basically my new IT band. I was on Spotify’s Discover tab, looking at potential bands I’d like based on the bands I love. I think they were under the since you like Hippo Campus category and anything Hippo Campus-like is a must-listen for me so off I went.
AND HELLO, THAT WAS ELEVEN DAYS AGO. I wasn’t able to blog about them because THESIS! But here I am now and forgive me for sharing this amazing to you late.
JUST LISTEN TO IT OKAY, I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO PITCH THIS ANYMORE BECAUSE I JUST WANT TO PUBLISH THIS POST AND GET THE SONG TO YOUR RADARS.
