January Spotify Playlist | A Sound Remedy for an Insane World
Boy, oh, boy…I don’t know about you, but I need some tunes that help my heart remain resilient in these bizarre times. I need a remedy for the insanity of the world in the form of a Spotify playlist! So, I spent a very chilly Saturday morning looking at Indie bands and what’s on offer from the non-corporate musical world. Here’s what I found. I hope it helps you as much as it is helping me.
When Chai Met Toast
The first selections in my January Spotify playlist that is When Chai Met Toast. Self-described as: A simple breakfast. A simple melody. When Chai Met Toast takes inspiration from the lighter side of life to create music that is heart-warming, happy and smile…All four of their songs on Spotify met my need for entertainment and encouragement. Here’s Firefly, the others can be found on the full playlist.
I am so ecstatic to have found these calm, silky sounds made by an American woman who was born in Syria. Azniv Korkejian is the true name of this singer-songwriter known as Bedouine. She could have been as easily at home in a 60s coffee shop as in today’s small venues. Read her story to be restored, and watch this to see what I mean. The remainder of her songs can be heard on the full playlist.
Do you follow NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts? I do because the radio music in my neck of the woods leaves much to be desired. I crave new sounds and to know what young people are saying and feeling through their music. Julien Baker offered one of their most popular tiny desk concerts ever, and that is how I found her haunting sounds. Here’s a sample, check out the playlist for more.
A Few Dance Tunes
So, now I think we all need a pick-me-up in the January Spotify playlist that’s a remedy for insane times. The list will end with a few dance tunes. Here’s one with a great 80s retro sound. Enjoy!
