“Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart..”
― Pablo Casals
In how it’s interpretation can oscillate between the perceptions of its listeners,
In how its perception can be influenced by the context we place upon it,
In how its context pervades a range of viewpoints and frequencies,
In how definite frequencies are open to indefinite realms of resonance.
There’s also something in how parts of us resonate with its presence to points where we want others to resonate with it to.
Points like this.
I should probably point out that I’m not an expert in any sense of the word. That I’m not going to analyse “metrical structure” or “the composition of the melodies” or anything like that.
What I am going to do is make a playlist, each Thursday, of the songs I’m currently listening to or enjoyed in the past. Hopefully you vibe with them to.
Side Note: I think the visual artistry in this is beautifully entrancing.
Also note: It’s going to take you a minute or so before you realize that your eyes are perfectly fine.
Artist: Blaise Moore
Song: He Don’t
Fun Fact: Her debut EP “Laurence” is actually named after her ex. 👀👀👀 You can read about some of the influences to “He Don’t,” her other tracks and more about her here.
Also: If you vibe with this, you’ll probably like her album as well. It’s highly recommended.
Song: Falling Short
BTW: You might find yourself listening to this as you contemplate facets of your existence at 2 o’clock in the morning. No? That’s just me then.
Artist: Sophie Meiers, Rob Smyles
Song: Lazy Eyes
Artist: Eli Sostre
Song: Vibe With
P.S.: If you like this, make sure you check out his entire album “Still Up All Night,” it’s still one of my favorites nearly a year after I first listened to it.
