Man, the past few weeks were crazy busy for me. There was a scheduled final exam every other day. Don’t ask me how I did that. 😀 I survived one term of nursing. I have 5 more terms to go. Yay.
A. and I saw Khruangbin play live at the Danforth Music Hall. It was also my first time at the hall. It’s a very popular venue for acts like Mac Demarco, Chromeo and Cut Copy. It also had big names perform on its stage, names like Chance The Rapper, Hugh Laurie and The Tragically Hip (the most Canadian band ever).
Khruangbin is a band you need to listen to at least once in your life, ideally over something herby. *wink* It’s legal in Canada, so I can say that now. But, if you’re under 18, your brains are still developing, don’t mess that shit up. A few years of waiting ain’t that bad. Don’t be stupid, k?
Khruangbin is responsible for the music behind the recent Corona ad campaign #ThisIsLiving:
The song is called Number 4. Here it is in its entirety:
But, my favourite Khruangbin song so far is this:
She’s adorable, no?
Anyway, moving on to this month’s playlist. Again, no rhyme or reason. Just went with songs that were stuck in my head for the past month.
Favourite song: Suzanne by Bermuda Triangle
Very bare, apt for the emotions of a woman who loves a man who can’t get over his ex. Bermuda Triangle is a trio of female musicians Jesse Lafser, Becca Mancari, and Alabama Shakes vocalist and guitarist Brittany Howard.
Favourite group: Parcels
There must be something about Australia that just makes people play good music. I mean, Tame Impala, Cut Copy and Sia, come on! The band collaborated with Daft Punk for their first hit “Overnight,” and people keep asking them about that experience. After listening to their debut album, I think people should stop because they’re doing fine on their own. Also, George Harrison has always been my favourite Beatle.
Well, this marks one full year of sharing my favourite music with you. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Maybe, I’ll make a separate post for year-end playlists and my Spotify Wrapped results. Watch out for that. 🙂
