This playlist certainly encompasses what will likely be my most broad playlist, so if you were looking for variety, you’ve come to the right place. “Firth of Fifth” — Genesis A piano ...

In honor of couples walking even slower down the middle of the sidewalk, I made this playlist specifically for people celebrating Valentine’s Day. If you wanted more vulgar and graphic love songs, I apologize, but this is a wholesome, family-friendly holiday, and kids might be reading this. “Yo...

Spotify has been giving me some truly awful suggested playlists, lately. The Daily Mixes either have songs from artists I haven’t listened to in years or overly produced noise, instead of music.

Chamber of Reflection–Mac DeMarco My roommates would groan at this one. This song has been my most played on Spotify for, I think, three years in a row. Now, I recognize the meme status that comes with being a white boy who’s too into Mac DeMarco, but this is truly one of those songs I will neve...

April comes to a close, we often find ourselves caught between a few moods: celebration of the warm weather, anticipation of finally returning home to comfier beds and of course, existential dread propagated by final exams. Rather than suit this latter feeling with a playlist of vaguely nihilistic ...
