Its been a bit since I last shared songs here. I was in the midst of a transition, and now am in a lot of training. Grateful for the new opportunity and challenges, but a bit overwhelmed. Trying to carve out space for me amidst the changes, for writing, for music, for creating and curating, and for rest. The latter isn’t my strong suit, but I’m trying to tailor it fit me.
I’ve usually been a 30-song girl when it came to playlists, but lately I’ve been feeling something different, something shorter, something that I can really get to know, and play, over and again.
Here’s 12 that I’m swimming around in right now.
Take These Tracks and Dance Away

Not surprised to see the sky and know what I must do.”

“Can’t shake the feeling,
that I’m just bad at healing.”
Track 3 – “Stoned At the Nail Salon” by Lorde
“Got a wishbone dryin’ on the windowsill in my kitchen,
just in case I wake up and realize,
I’ve chosen wrong.”
Track 4 – “Diamonds” by POESY

I know you’re feeling lost like this.
And oh my love, fates will pass,
but we’re still standing at the edge.”
Track 5 – “Golosa” by Isabella Lovestory

Tengo las mas expensive fragancias.
Baby vámonos a Francia.
Es de Madrid y me dice gracias.”
Track 6 – “The King” by Sarah Kinsley
“So tell me,
before we get older let’s do everything,
you’re scared of when it’s over.”
Track 7 – “Smalltown Boy” by Kele
“Pushed around and kicked around,
always a lonely boy.
You were the one that they’d talk about around town as they put you down.”
Track 8 – “Funeral” by Phoebe Bridgers
“And I have this dream where I’m screaming underwater,
while my friends are all waving from the shore,
and I don’t need you to tell me what that means,
I don’t believe in that stuff anymore.”
Track 9 – “Miss Chatelaine” (Iron Hoof Remix) by k.d. lang and Orville Peck
“Just a sigh,
just a sigh.
Words my love just reply.”
Track 10 – “The Shame Of Love” by Juliana Hatfield
don’t know who you are.”
Track 11: “Circles” by Shout Out Louds
“I took the long way home,
over the tracks and past his house.
But where oh where would the lantern lead?
I walk until it hits me.
Just give me a little more time.”
Track 12: “Will I See You Tonight?” by Devendra Banhart, featuring Vashti Bunyan
“In this far away place,
where just saying your name,
gets me drunk on distance,
and every night feels the same.”
