Welcome. to. this. new. music. post. yeah. woohoo.

*awkward silence*

Okay. Let’s start again.

Hello friends of the Internet! 

How are you today? Ready for some fionatastic music recommendations?! I know I am. Okay hah, maybe you’re not but I’m forcing them on you anyway because that’s the charming person I am. April has been a pretty weird month for me, it has me feeling all over the place. But one thing you can always count on, however I may be feeling, is a solid playlist.

I’m actually really feeling this April playlist, ya girl is pretty proud of all of the songs she found. Unfortunately this month’s edition won’t be as visually aesthetic as the last because I’ve been working hard on a bunch of other projects (*hint* collaborations *hint*) that you will hopefully get to see for yourself soon.

Fun fact: when I write these Monthly Music posts I always listen to the playlist on blast.

Quick sidenote but also kind of relevant: I do a lot of polls on my Instagram story because I find it interesting to see people’s opinions on (sometimes controversial) topics. Anyway, I asked a bunch of you how you like to listen to your music, the two options being “at a normal volume” and “on blast”. 56% voted for “on blast”, 44% for “at a normal volume” (just thought I’d throw that in here, this being a music post and all. Gosh, why am I so awkward today?).

I think you’re probably had it with my rambling on and on about… nothing in particular, so here is the main reason you clicked on this post; A bunch of fucking awesome songs I’ve been loving lately.

By clicking on the song titles in blue you will be redirected to the YouTube video of the given song. All songs are available on Spotify, my whole playlist will be embedded at the end of this post.

‘Cause I’m A Man – Tame Impala

This is the first song in my playlist for a reason. I am a big Tame Impala fan, have been for a long time, so it’s no surprise that I like this track. What is so striking to me about Kevin is that he manages to produce this unique sound to his songs, so that they are always recognizable.

 

Loving is Easy – Rex Orange County

Okay. Let me start off by saying that if you don’t know who Rex Orange County is – WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE? He is 19 years old and is better than a lot of established artists! I am happy that he is now beginning to get the recognition he deserves, he’s such a pure ray of sunshine. Loving is Easy is one of the many songs of his that I listened to these past few months and it gives me such a happy feeling. I hope it can do the same for you.

 

Like Yesterday – Paul Cherry

Stop what you’re doing right now, put in some headphones and listen to this gem. I MEAN IT. Paul Cherry reminds me of a mixture between Rex Orange County, Homeshake, Passion Pit and Mac DeMarco. This song currently has a little over 8,000 views on YouTube – UNDERRATED!

 

OKRA – Tyler, The Creator

I’ve had a big love for Tyler ever since Cherry Bomb. I think he is one of the brightest creative minds out there today. So when I heard this was actually a “throwaway song” of his, I was like “WHAT? THIS IS BETTER THAN A LOT OF ALBUM SONGS OTHER RAPPERS MAKE.

 

ALBUMS:

Sex & Food – Unknown Mortal Orchestra

Unknown Mortal Orchestra have produced so many great songs over the years, like So Good At Being In Trouble, Multi-Love, Not in Love We’re Just High and much, much more. Four words: LISTEN. TO. THIS. ALBUM.

My Dear Melancholy, – The Weeknd

For this one I’m actually going to refer you to a post from my good blogging friend Alex, where she reviews and sums up the whole album perfectly. Just know that I have been in love with The Weeknd ever since House Of Balloons. Any 2011 fans with me?
