Music Monday 01/10/2018

of course, the way that i break my hiatus is by telling you what music i have been listening to during this time of hibernation. i hope you enjoy! (and tune in for the next blog post – i’ll explain my absences.)

I Don’t Lack Imagination // EˆST • this song is definitely blasted when i’m angry. and it’s the best way to get your emotions out with a catchy beat and melody. EˆST is definitely one to watch.

i don’t lack imagination to my own goddamn frustration …

Go Fuck Yourself // Two Feet • i heard this song in ‘Atypical’ (gah i love that show!!) and holy smokes!! that beat drop gets me every time. it’s a sultry piece of music!

play these little games …

Chicago // sufjan stevens • let’s be honest here: sufjan stevens is an angel that has been sent to grace us with his beautiful music. this song is one of his older ones (and quite a different one from others on his ‘carrie and lowell’ album!). i definitely recommend checking out this album. the amazing song titles are just the beginning!

i’ve made a lot of mistakes …

Soul Lay Open // Terence Ryan • ooft that chorus is the most catchy chorus that i have heard this week. i can’t get it out of my head!

threw pennies in the whole time I was growing up …

whisper // serpentwithfeet • i found this artist just a couple of days ago and i fell in love. his unique voice paired with orchestral music makes the most interesting sound. it’s even better if you use headphones. ‘whisper’ itself is a brooding song which creeps upon you from its inception.

I Feel Like I’m Drowning // Two Feet • you can definitely find the on-brand guitar riffs and beat drops in this song. yes, it’s two songs from the same band in the same post. but, damn. their songs are so sultry and enchanting.

you’re a poison and i know that is the truth …

invoice // serpentwithfeet • yep-a-doodle-dee! another song from this artist. ‘invoice’ begins with josiah wise’s classic vibrato voice and comes together with an amazing beat drop. please listen to this one.

whatever makes you cold …

Big God // Florence + The Machine • okay, any song with florence welsh is going be the best. ooft, i can’t get over the beat and the haunting guitar playing in the background below florence’s unique voice.

jesus christ it hurts …

Me and The Devil // Soap&Skin • if you’re not listening carefully, you would confuse this song with something from florence + the machine. anja plaschg creates a dark, soul-stirring sound in this song. the string instruments with their incessant playing of the same notes echoes throughout the song.

hello satan, i believe that it’s time to go. me and the devil, walking side by side …


what have you been up to while i was away?

Music Monday 07/05/2018

hello! in the time that i’ve been away, my music list has become quite large, so i hope this is not too much of a drag! also, please tune in until the end of the blog post because i need your opinion on something!!

Breezeblocks // alt-J • did you know that i am obsessed with alt-J? no? well, welcome. their songs are so eclectic but i love it and Breezeblocks is one of my favourites by them that i recently discovered!

She may contain the urge to run away, but hold her down with soggy clothes and breezeblocks …

lovely // Billie Eilish, Khalid • THIS IS THE COLLAB I NEVER KNEW I NEEDED. AND I AM VERY HAPPY BECAUSE BILLIE IS BECOMING MORE FAMOUS AND THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT THIS WILL BE ON THE RADIO AND I’M EXCITED.

Even if it takes all night or a hundred years …

Words // Gregory Alan Isakov • beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. this song reminds me of summer nights, lying in the grass and watching the twinkling stars. i love!!!

Words mean more at night, like a song …

Blinded // Emmit Fenn • the beat, the words, the voice … everything! this song is so satisfying!!

‘Cause I feel blinded, blinded by you …

Love Is Madness // Thirty Seconds to Mars, Halsey • look, i really only like this song because of Halsey, but it has some pretty rad tunes (also, apparently i have been living under a rock because i didn’t know Jared Leto was in a band??)

You are crazy, a perfect liar …

Hide & Seek // Amber Run • yes, this is a cover. yes, you’ve most definitely heard the part where it goes ‘mmm watcha say …’ but the point is that AMBER RUN HAS SUCH AMAZING VOCALS AND HARMONIES AND I CAN’T GET OVER THEM.

Hide and seek, trains and sewing machines …

Sunflower // Rex Orange County • YES, THIS MAN MAKES THE BEST TUNES AND I’M SORRY IF I SPAM WITH SONGS.

Sunflowers still grow at night …

Best Friend // Rex Orange County • okay, i kinda relate to this song so that is why i really like it, but like i said before THIS IS REX ORANGE COUNTY SO YOU BET IT’S GOING TO BE GOOD.

I still wanna be your favourite boy …

Corduroy Dreams // Rex Orange County • surprise, surprise … it’s him again.

Let’s dream in corduroy …

In The Middle // dodie • precious, precious dodie. what a smol wholesome bean! i love her so much and THIS SONG. despite it’s very interesting meaning, it’s so boppy!

Wanna help my world collide? 

The Other Side of Paradise // Glass Animals • i loooooove Glass Animals and recently got into this song! i can’t tell you what i specifically like about this song, i guess i like it all!

Bye bye baby blue, I wish you could see the wicked truth …

I Love You So // The Walters • i found this gem on YouTube and i love it. i feel like it’s a mixture between alt-J, Rex Orange County and Amber Run? give it a listen!

I love you so, please let me go …


good job! you managed to get through it all!

so, i have an idea! 

i would like to do a series on my blog where i answer your questions about anything! books, life, friends, school … i’m open to all. but i’m wondering if you would be interested in it? please give your feedback in the form below!! the questions would be totally anonymous, but i think it would help with building a stronger relationship with you, my readers! and it would help others with similar problems!

also, so we can kick this series off soon (if you want it) please email all questions at: thebooktypegal@gmail.com


Music Monday 05/03/2018

long time, no see! i am extremely sorry for not sticking to my blogging schedule, but i will try to get back on it eventually! anyway, here is the music i have been loving lately!!

Lemon Boy // Cavetown • HOLY MOLY, THIS SONG IS AMAZING! okay, the original is so so so so so good, but there is a cover by my favourite person ever!! PLEASE GIVE IT A LISTEN ~ chloe moriondo 

What if lemon boy won’t grown no longer, what if the beaches dry of sugarcane …

Every Other Freckle // alt-J • I LOVE ALT-J!! i used to like their music, then i fell out of it, but i’m back and i really, really missed it!! i forgot how amazing this song is!

I’m gonna paw, paw at you, like a cat paws at my woollen jumper …

Mystery of Love // Sufjan Stevens • OKAY, BUT HAVE YOU SEEN CALL ME BY YOUR NAME? IT IS ACTUALLY SO BEAUTIFUL AND IT WON BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY AT THE OSCARS SO I AM VERY HAPPY! but, on another note, I LOVE SUFJAN STEVENS AND HE MADE A SONG FOR A BEAUTIFUL MOVIE!!

The first time that you touched me, oh, will wonders ever cease?

I Love You (Acoustic) // Woodkid • this is such a beautiful song when it is acoustic. don’t get me wrong, the original is a-mazing (it’s in Divergent) but this is so slow and you can really hear the voice.

Whatever I feel for you, you only seem to care about you …


i’m sorry that this is a short list this week – i could have added more, but i wanted to be really authentic about the songs!

 

Music Monday 12/02/2018

hello!! here is the music lineup for this week!! i hope you enjoy the selection, please tell me what you think! x

Veins (Acoustic) // Fyfe • the beginning of the song just makes me feel so satisfied. oh my!!

You can cure this pain, slipping through my veins …

XO // Eden Project • i can’t figure out why i like this song, but it’s just catchy!

‘Cause “we’re in love but just don’t know it yet” …

Wouldn’t Mean A Thing // Bruno Major • this is such a beautiful song, but it’s still really alternative which makes me happy 🙂

I could find the buried treasure of ancient kings, but it wouldn’t mean a thing without you …

I Watched You Slip // Panama • this song came up as part of an ad and it seemed relatively good, so i ended up saving it. it’s not too bad!!

I watched you slip right through my hands …

So Lonely // Jorja Smith • her voice is so beautiful and this song is so deep. i’m sinking in the depth of this song!!

Feelin’ out of touch, lost my way …

Boy // Anne-Marie • i love this song!! it’s funny and boppy!! i love her so much and this song is amazing.

Are you into me boy? Or are you into someone else? Like maybe that boy …


what song are you obsessed with at the moment?

Music Monday 05/02/2018

hey, hey, hey! how have you been so far? i can’t believe a month has already gone by of 2018. far out!! 2019 will be right around the corner in no time at all. anywho, here is my music fix for this week!!

Open Water // The Citrus Clouds, Old Tribe • aaahh! this song just makes me feel so happy!!! happy aeva is the best aeva!

If you leave me out there, in the depths of my despair …

Staples // Jake Howden • his voice is so beautiful. i love his type of voice, so when i heard this song, i was instantly sold.

And you say, does it matter where we go from here …

Poison // Felicity • i’ve had this song for quite a while, but upon listening to it again, i realised how good it is!! her voice is a-mazing!

You’re like poison …

Paris in the Rain // Lauv • i love Lauv, there is no doubt! this song is so catchy (in a good way!!)

Anywhere with you feels like Paris in the rain …

Deliverance // RY X • i discovered this song after watching The 100 last year, but only really started appreciating it until now!! what a mistake! it’s so gooooooood!

I’ve been awake for deliverance …

bellyache // Billie Eilish • i listened to Ocean Eyes quite a while ago, but when i found out her age, i began to question my life choices considering she is the same age as me and has achieved so much. but she makes great content and THIS SONG IS MY FAVOURITE!!! i honestly just get up and dance around my room when i listen to this song. it’s dark and callous and wonderful.

Maybe it’s in the gutter, where I left my lover …


what music are you currently listening to?

i hope you enjoyed this week music!

 

Music Monday 22/01/2018

my first Music Monday of 2018!!! i’m so pumped! for weeks i have been itching to listen to new music (because everyone is releasing music!!) and blog about it. the time has arrived!! here are the bops of this week:

My My My! // Troye Sivan • i have been waiting a long time for my baby to release new music and i have finally been graced with his beautiful heavenly voice. this is definitely my favourite this week.

I die every night with you …

Butterflies // No Mono • so there’s this program in Australia called ‘rage’ and it’s usually late at night but i’m on break so i was just there, channel surfing, and this song came on and I WAS SHOOK. the voice is interesting and it pulled me in instantly.

I remember trying to fight the fever …

Keep On // Kehlani • this was meant to be on last year’s Music Monday, but i never got to it. i love Kehlani and i remember listening to her music a few years ago. this song is so boppy and i can’t help bopping when i listen to it. it’s a bop!!

And you just keep on taking me back …

Castle // Slum Sociable • i don’t know why i like this song, but it’s pretty cool and it sticks in your head and the band seems pretty funny. give it a listen.

Waves of uncertainty …

E.S.P // N.E.R.D •  someone recommended this album and this was the first song that played when i listened and loved it. the beginning reminds of Pharrell Williams and Bruno Mars just stirred together in a pot.

You got so much time, but you ‘ain’t gonna use it …

Feel Something // Jaymes Young • he is one of my favourite singers!! every. single. song. is. amazing.

Make me feel something …

We’re Going Home // Vance Joy • this is so smooth and calm. Vance Joy reminds of Ed Sheeran and i like Ed Sheeran so of course i like him too!

When I see your light shine, I know I’m home …

2000 n Somethin // Kaiit • if you liked Kehlani, then i think you’ll like Kaiit. i am shook right down to my core.

So caught up in the world around me …

The Good Side // Troye Sivan • this song reminds me of songs that i used to listen a couple of years ago which you might find on my blog, so this song makes me feel nostalgic. plus, it’s Troye Sivan, of course i love this song and him!!

I’ve got the good side of life …


what have you been listening to so far in 2018? let me know!
