"Justina, it's the 28th. Might be time to do the monthly playlist."
I'm sorry that it took so long but you know what
you guys sent in a LOT of suggestions,
and I have only two ears,
and as I now know,
using each of those ears individually can't be pulled off.
Plus, how am I meant to know if I'm properly obsessed with a song
unless I listen to it until I've memorized every lyric?
But I think this one was worth the wait.
We have my favorite AJR song, hands down, AfterHours. Their lyrics blow my mind sometimes. Listen, dance, and understand.
KONGOS + Kalin and Myles are straight up dance jams.
I recently got Hulu+,
and so like any sane person,
decided to watch 5 seasons of Community in a week.
That's how I met Troy Barnes aka Donald Glover
aka Childish Gambino when he's shopping with his mum.
It was a bit like seeing a Kardashian in Walmart:
unexpected and brilliantly hilarious.
I of course had to include one of my favorites off his first album Camp.
Next themesong of "Troy and Abed in the Morning"?
Last but not least in any sense are my favorite blonde siblings.
R5 dropped an EP, Heart Made Up On You,
with 4 songs that will make up a big chunk of your future playlists.
"Things are Looking Up" is a sunshiney number
that brings an American Authors vibe without being too skip-a-long.
So there you have it,
the sounds of July.
Now just overlay the noise of fireworks
and people swearing when the aformentioned fireworks land on their foot,
and you're all set.
if you have suggestions for next months playlist,
drop 'em in the comments.
