Lucky Strike // Troye Sivan

I’m (unofficially) declaring 2019 the year of indie pop. A genre I had fallen out of for some time but now completely immersed in, again.

needy // Ariana Grande

Good God, Ari is simply killing it. She’s been featured on at least half of my monthly songs since my comeback last summer.

Ball For Me feat. Nicki Minaj // Post Malone

Posty is one of my favorite top 40 artists in the game. I love the way he effortlessly blends contrasting genres to create his own musical fusion. Fun fact: I actually saw him open up for Justin Bieber in 2016 shortly after White Iverson blew up, & of course I had no clue who he was & am deeply sad I didn’t appreciate the experience.

For the past month, I’ve been listening to:

Celestica // Crystal Castles

I kicked off 2019 with some moody tunes & amongst them was one of my favorite albums from 2012/13, Crystal Castles (II). You’ll often find me speaking fondly of my tumblr days, tumblr was a huge foundation for my aesthetic & individuality. A lot of the artists I found during this time I still listen to.

ocean eyes // Billie Eilish

Okay, I finally jumped on the Billie Eilish train & just in time for her debut album. I came across Bellyache on a Lorde / Lana Del Rey station last fall & was captivated by her haunting vocals. I gave don’t smile at me a chance this past month & I l didn’t take it off rotation for a week.

in the dark // Bring Me the Horizon

Every project BMTH releases brings something different & they are constantly pushing themselves as artists. They’ve remained one of my favorite artists since high school for this reason. Although I was slightly (very) disappointed the rumor of Post Malone being featured on amo was false, I was pleasantly surprised to hear that synth-pop artist Grimes was taking that spot.

songs of the week // january 14th, 2019

Here are some of my favorites from December:

REEL IT IN // Aminé 

Aminé initially caught my attention back in 2017 with his hit Caroline. A few months ago the video for REEL IT IN popped up on Twitter. Although I enjoy Aminé’s approach to music, Vine star Rickey Thompson’s cameo made the bigger impression in the end.

Heroin // Lana Del Rey

In anticipation of Lana’s newest album, I have been diving back into her last record. (I think nearly every song from Lust for Life has been featured in this series)

Riders on the Storm // The Doors

I spent most of December obsessing over Greta Van Fleet’s Anthem of the Peaceful Army so I’m going to include a throwback of one of my all-time favorite songs.

songs of the week // december 10th, 2018

Lately, I’ve been listening to:

hannah_alaine_december_songs_ariana_grande

thank u, next // Ariana Grande

Ari (Queen of Pop) is back at it & she’s outdone herself. I loved the powerful feminine energy that exuded from Sweetener, but thank u, next is a whole new level of powerful (sad girl) feminine energy. I’ve followed Ariana since early in high school & it makes me so happy to see the recognition she is getting. I’m so exhilarated to see what’s in store for AG5.

Watching Over //  Greta Van Fleet

Earlier this summer, I discovered Greta Van Fleet & was completely obsessed with their From the Fires EP. When I heard their debut album was being released in the fall I was ecstatic. I feel like the boys have found a little more of their own sound with their debut album. The acoustic numbers really stand out for me however I genuinely enjoy the album as a whole. After listening to the record a second time I’ve grown to appreciate every song on the record & frankly, I’m obsessed. A big congratulations to the group as well for landing 4 Grammy nominations. ✨’

He Can Only Hold Her // Amy Winehouse

‘He tries to pacify her, but what’s inside her never dies’

One Thursday in November, we had a gorgeous snowy day. I decided to enjoy the beauty of that day & put a record on. The record of choice was Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black, this record is the equivalent of a warm blanket on a cold day & will always comfort me in my deepest sorrows.

 

 

Tune in next month (& year 😉) to find out what I’ve been listening to.

songs of the week // november 8th, 2018

I’ve been listening to:

Wu Tang Forever feat. Wu-Tang Clan // Logic

Logic dropped his 4th album & final in the Young Sinatra series, YSIV (a surprise release as well) at the end of September. I’m a huge connoisseur of 90’s hip-hop & was so stunned when Logic made the announcement that all living members of Wu-Tang Clan were going to be featured on a song. Hearing some of my favorite artists from the past & present on one song was such a sweet treat.

Venice Bitch // Lana Del Rey

Another one of my favorites announced an album in September. Both singles were considerably stripped down in comparison to the Honeymoon & Lust for Life eras, Lana is tracing back to some Ultraviolence vibes with my personal favorite of the two. With this in mind, I’m looking forward to hearing the album as a whole.
