On repeat.


Emphasis on the verse and sounds for, “You’ve captured my heart in ways I didn’t know I could be captured”. He sounds a lot like Will Heard.

“I felt the chorus grow more exultant, more ecstatic, upcurving swift and flame-like, until my heart almost stood still.”

“You’ve brought me here to rest

And given me space to breathe

So I’ll stay still until it sinks in”

Life giving songs when I have less. Man, am I grateful for the human that is Jonathan McReynolds. Hallelujah (praise be to God).

SOPHIE: A true boundary pusher in electronic and synthesized sound. Also a boundary pusher on what it looks to be an artist that challenges gender norms and succeeds.  2:16, get ready for a total twist

DROELOE & San Holo – Lines of the Broken

Lauryn Hill – Joyful, Joyful, Sister Act 2

Kehlani – Escape

Chad Lawson : My modern day Debussy.

“Music is at once the most wonderful, the most alive of all the arts — it is the most abstract, the most perfect, the most pure — and the most sensual. I listen with my body and it is my body that aches in response to the passion and pathos embodied in this music.” – Susan Sontag

Jan Blomqvist – I Don’t Think About You

Amir – J’ai Cherché

Ella Fitzgerald – Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye: i will be forever grateful to The Parent Trap for opening me up to the fantastical world of Ella Fitzgerald. Listen to this beautiful sonnet of all that is good and fair in love– to the pining lover, may you pine away.

Inspiring and uplifting rendition of Michael Jackson’s Man in the Mirror.

Palace: newcomers bidding for the title of “the new nouveau Stroke.”

Stromae (Live) – Ave Cesaria: “What’s a Cavaquinho?” Stromae is simply amazing. One of the few artists I truly respect for their mastery of music and lyric content. The message is the medium? The medium is the message? Stromae does it all.

“Music … stands quite apart from all the [other arts]. In it we do not recognize the copy, the repetition, of any Idea of the inner nature of the world. Yet it is such a great and exceedingly fine art, its effect on man’s innermost nature is so powerful, and it is so completely and profoundly understood by him in his innermost being as an entirely universal language, whose distinctness surpasses even that of the world of perception itself, that in it we certainly have to look for more than that exercitium arithmeticae occultum nescientis se numerare animi [“an unconscious exercise in arithmetic in which the mind does not know it is counting”] which Leibniz took it to be… We must attribute to music a far more serious and profound significance that refers to the innermost being of the world and of our own self.” – Arthur Schopenhauer
