I’ve been listening to:
God is a woman // Ariana Grande
God is a woman has honestly been my favorite song released in 2018. We love a female power anthem.
High Horse // Kacey Musgraves
Most of my favorite music is high energy but I do have a soft spot for something soft & acoustic — Golden Hour has been that album for me recently. An atypical choice if we’re being real. My musical taste is spread across most genres, but country is far & few in my Spotify. I enjoy the country music my grandparents listened to, but I find the modern take to be immensely repetitive. Kacey Musgraves is a breath of fresh air, her vintage blend of country & pop is seamless & alluring.
Edge of Darkness // Greta Van Fleet
Greta Van Fleet is the best new band I have heard in a long while. How these guys are so young with so much soul is incredible. The way they’ve presented their Zeppelin-esque sound is parallel to how Lana Del Rey transports us to the 1950’s with each record she releases. I think Greta Van Fleet has the rare power to unite opposing generations of music lovers.
Tune in next month to find out what I’ve been loving

Hello everyone 💥 I hope everyone had a wonderful fourth of July. Today I’m showing off what I was listening to while I was away:
Buried Alive // Logic
Like Whoa // Logic
Hallelujah // Logic
Logic has been heavy in my rotation since the fall. I feel like no matter what he makes is so damn good! Mixtapes, albums – they’re all catchy with great meaning / hooks. I’ve listed my favorites from each of his albums.
Blue by You // Turnstile
Hardcore is another genre I got super into as well in the fall of last year. I love both punk & metal so it’s no surprise this hybrid of the two fell into my lap. Turnstile is easily my favorite I’ve found so far, but I also enjoy Knocked Loose & Code Orange.
Saturnalia // Marilyn Manson
Growing up, I was the kid who made fun of the goth kids, (because I secretly wanted to be one but was too worried about what others thought of me) but here I am at 23 obsessed with the new Manson record. This record started coming up on Spotify’s Slipknot radio & the more I heard, the more I couldn’t get enough.
Froot // Marina & the Diamonds
Marina used to be one of my faves in high school & after listening to her again in recent months, I remember why. Her voice & overall aesthetic makes her one of the most unique of our generation. She also announced on Twitter this week she is releasing a new album in the fall!
Lonely // Demi Lovato
Demi is forever my favorite. I have been a fan of her since seeing her on tour with the Jonas Brothers in 2008 & at times, it feels like I’ve grown up with her. Her music has always spoken to me. I felt a little less alone after watching Simply Complicated & seeing her go through some issues similar to my own. I only recently listened to Tell Me You Love Me & I can’t lie, I’m kicking myself. This project is easily her best album. I always look forward to what Demi has in store but I can’t help but predict that her next record will be even better than TMYLM.
Broken Clocks // SZA
2017 was an awesome year for new artists & SZA was just one of the artists who got their big break. Hearing Drew Barrymore for the first time was one of my most iconic moments of 2017.
Hello again 🤗 Tomorrow I am leaving for a family vacation to North Carolina with my family but first I wanted to share some of my photos from last weekend! I was lucky enough to scoop up tickets to Logic’s sold out show at Madison Square Garden, it was so incredible seeing an artist I love so much play one of the world’s most famous arenas. If you’re heading out to a later date on this tour you are seriously in for a treat! Logic is one of the best performers I have seen to date. Can’t wait for his next tour!
Oh my goodness, hello all!!! 😇 2017 & the beginning of 2018 were so crazy but I am so glad to be back. During some of my time away from blogging, I took a bit of a break from Twitter. I made a video talking about my experience more in-depth. Enjoy!
This week I’m listening to:
Hunt You Down // Kesha
Naturally, I’m still listening to Rainbow. Hunt You Down is the song that surprised me the most off this record. It’s has a 50’s country / Johnny Cash vibe to it, which is incredibly unique in comparison to the music of today.
Galway Girl // Ed Sheeran
Another one of my favorite releases of this year was Ed Sheeran’s Divide. I still find myself listening to this on repeat for a few days at a time.
Just a Girl // No Doubt
Gwen Stefani was one of the first artists to inspire me. I’ll never forget when she stormed onto the scene in 2004 with her solo debut Love. Angel. Music Baby. At first, I didn’t know she fronted an alt rock band, but when I did she became one of my idols & that’s never changed. If I could pick a theme song to play for my life, it would undoubtedly be Just a Girl.
This week I’m listening to:
Savage // Lights
Lights has been one of my favorite artists since high school & continues to prove herself incredibly unique with the upcoming release of her new album. Skin & Earth is slated for a release late next month, it is a concept album with a comic book companion. The releases so far off Skin & Earth for me have been hot & cold. However, due to it being a concept album – I’m not losing hope. I’m anticipating hearing how the songs will intertwine with one another. Much like when I listen to Pink Floyd – I cannot bring myself to listen to one or a few songs at a time, I need to listen to everything at once. The effect isn’t as beautiful. Bonus: if you’re a Twenty One Pilots fan, this track features Josh Dun on drums.
Woman // Kesha
2017 is continuing to prove itself as a year for great pop releases. Early last month, Kesha announced her newest single Praying, shortly followed by the album Rainbow. Rainbow is being described as the album Kesha always wanted to release – it fuses country, rock, & typical Kesha dance hits in complete symphony. If you are a fan of Kesha without auto-tune, give Rainbow a listen. Rainbow even contains far less auto-tune than Warrior. Woman has officially become my personal new girl power anthem, it is one of the stand out tracks on the album.
Hymn // Kesha
A bonus since I skipped out on last week (& because Rainbow is 🔥🔥). Yet another empowering track from Kesha, another go-to track for when I’m feeling less than myself. I know that I’m perfect / even though I’m fucked up / Hymn for the hymnless / don’t need no forgiveness.
Clairvoyant // The Story So Far
My old fave of the week is one of the Story So Far’s best-known songs, an acoustic dream featuring the famed lyrics don’t paint me black when I used to be golden.
This week I’m listening to:
Two Ghosts // Harry Styles
Not gonna lie, when I heard Harry Styles was releasing a solo album I rolled my eyes a bit. I wasn’t sure what to expect & was hoping it wouldn’t be bubblegum pop. Harry & Zayn were the stand out members of One Direction, in my opinion. I was absolutely stunned when a few of these songs popped up on the Ed Shreeran station on Spotify. It was nothing close to my expectations. The soft rock & acoustic sound has such a Rolling Stones / 70’s vibe to it, even if this wasn’t Harry Styles – I’d still be listening.
Cherry // Lana Del Rey
I couldn’t help but to list this weeks fave song off Lust for Life, I’m officially putting Lana is on hiatus from songs of the week.
Novacane // Frank Ocean
One of my all-time favorites, this one never gets old.
