Fangirls! At the end of one month, as the next is beginning, I like to make a playlist of all the music I’ve discovered and been most into over the last month. It makes things easier and more enjoyable, because I can easily access the stuff I want to be listening to, and rock out to it all all at once. Plus, I really enjoy making playlists. It occurred to me that I’ve never shared one of these playlists with you guys, and I figured that now is as good of a time as any. Especially because I feel like my playlist for August & September s pretty damn good one.
Holy cow, Fangirls. I get pretty picky about the more electronic or dance music that I like, but with Kiesza, I needed no convincing. This is one bad ass & incredible talent of a woman. Kiesza was classically trained in ballet, a trained code breaker in the Royal Canadian Army, and competed in the Miss Universe Canada pageant before she stumbled into brilliantly making music that makes us all dance like fools. This chick can do it all, but she especially makes incredible jams.
I think most would agree that music is something that can make us feel profound nostalgia. A song or album can bring us back to a memory: the times when you listened to it, who you listened to it with, what was going on in your life. I experience this constantly, it;s one of the reasons I hold music so dear to my heart. When I listen to The Weepies, I am transported.
