I’m waist-deep in preliminary research for my dissertation at the moment (I need to have my topic defined by like… last week) so it’s going to be a quick one from me today. I recently discovered Erin’s blog and I really enjoy her monthly mixtape feature, so I thought I’d do something similar (although probably not on a monthly basis, let’s be real).
As a worshipper at the altar of the Jays, most of my favourites are Australian and mildly alternative. During February I absolutely fell for Alex the Astronaut and her song ‘Rockstar City’ – Alex’s lyrics just strike me as being so genuine and full of a kind of innocence and naive excitement. I also discovered the soothing indie pop of OKBADLANDS, and came back to some old(ish) femme faves like Ali Barter and Lana Del Rey. I continued to appreciate the suburban Perth relatableness of Verge Collection (“I found love… at my IGA”) and the glorious, meaningful vocals of Gordi. And let’s not forget the awesome 80s pop throwback vibes of my all-time faves The Preatures.
This playlist is a bit eclectic and not particularly curated, because I wanted to keep it as real as possible… but let me know what you think! What music have you been loving lately?
