Playlist: Summer 2015

summer2015It has been nearly a year since I shared one of my current favorites playlists, Fangirls. It’s about time that changed. This summer has brought me buckets of fantastic tunes that have been playing nonstop in my car & around the house. So, I’ve reflected upon the last few months of music and what I’ve been enjoying the most, and put together a dozen of the highlights. Read More »

Music: “I Know It’s a Good Thing” // Shamir

shamir_i-d_03Since summer seemed to come out of nowhere in upstate New York, I’ve been on the prowl for some new, essential summer tunes. Deep in a search with no luck, I recalled a song that was briefly on a playlist in my workplace. It was such a good groove, and I would wait for it to come on everyday so I could dance my work woes away.

Music: Road Trip Playlist

Fangirls, I love, love, love driving. So of course, I adore road trips. I enjoy traveling a great deal, and I think there’s no better way to do it than by car. And, there’s no better way to road trip than with an arsenal of good tunes. To me, it’s essential. Road trip playlists are my favorite kind to make and listen to. You can pack them full of great jams, your favorite songs, and passionate sing a longs. For me, making them is almost just as fun as listening to them on the road.

Music: August / September Jams Playlist

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.

Music: Kiesza

Kiesza2014

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.
