From the moment I wake up, to the morning commute, to the office, I don’t think 10 minutes go by without me listening to music. I can’t get ready without Björk or Grimes helping me pick out an outfit for the day. Really almost every aspect of my life has some element of music with it—studying, working, driving, etc. #isthatbad? Am I blocking out the world? Well, escapism is part of my nature.
However, even when I’m not trying to ignore society, music is just nice to have playing in the background, it is the safety net for those awkward breaks in conversation or just to have on as white noise. Here in the office, we like to listen to KCRW, (“a service of Santa Monica College”, I sometimes like to pretend that I am a radio DJ for NPR), which is amazing because I am always finding great new music to listen to. They’ve been telling us for weeks to check out their brand new website. “It features a responsive design.” Haha.
So here is what I am listening to right now:
- All The Time by Bahamas
- Never Work For Free by Tennis
- Age of Consent by New Order
- Every 1’s A Winner by Hot Chocolate
- 1991 by Azealia Banks
- Midnight Song by Wild Nothing
- Klapp Klapp by Little Dragon
- What’s In Your Head by Disclosure
- Ffunny Ffriends by Unknown Mortal Orchestra
- Wandering Limbs by Kimbra
My Right Now:
Stay here. El Cosmico in Marfa, Tx.
Eat here. Brite Spot in Echo Park.
