A Quarter of a Century

Today marks my 25th birthday, it’s been a whirlwind of an adventure and I can’t wait for the next 25 (It feels weird saying that) And what’s a great way to start off the day then to create a lovely playlist of songs for you — Because what’s a better way to celebrate a time like this then with friends and good music. So put on your favourite outfit, pop in your headphones, grab some cake, and press play; Time for a musical adventure, quarter of a century style.

THE SUMMER MIX TAPE: Day Two, Three, & Four | “One Night In Bangkok” by Murray Head, “Contact High” by Architecture In Helsinki, and “In The Sun” by She & Him

Ah life, how it gets in the way. My sincerest apologies for being a couple of days behind on the mix tape. I’ve been making a list of songs, just the days fly by (already!) and I haven’t had a moment to sit down, write a little thing, and post it on up.

These past few days have been busy and a whirlwind of awesome. Let me just say it now, this summer is going to be epic and this afternoon just confirmed it. So many adventures and surprises and amazing things are bound to happen (and are being planned to) and I’m not sure if I’m patient enough.
It’ll be a summer full of meeting friends from afar, reconnecting with old ones, visiting new places, starting new moments with majestic people, and just a bundle of wonderful memories to be had.

So lets get down to the songs, days two through four and allow the summer air to lift you up and whisk you away to a whole new world.

DAY TWO: “One Night In Bangkok” by Murray Head

DAY THREE: “Contact High” by Architecture In Helsinki

DAY FOUR: “In The Sun” by She & Him

Mini Reviews: “Volume 3” by She & Him

The fourth record from the dynamic duo of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward brings forth their original sound and bonds perfectly with the incoming warmer weather of this once dreary Canadian landscape. The songs range in emotion and tempo, creating a fluid movement from one to another and an overall splendour of sound. The cover itself instills thoughts of warmer, dreamier weather and what the coming months entail.

With this record, She & Him have continued with a respective balance between both upbeat tracks and slower movements. While not all the songs may grab you at first listen, some will always be there when you need a slower, melowy-er track for those late nights or early mornings. Some of my favourites include: “Baby” and “I Could’ve Been Your Girl”.

TRACK LIST:

  1. “I’ve Got Your Number, Son”
  2. “Never Wanted Your Love”
  3. “Baby”
  4. “I Could’ve Been Your Girl”
  5. “Turn To White”
  6. “Somebody Sweet To Talk To”
  7. “Something’s Haunting You”
  8. “Together”
  9. “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me”
  10. “Snow Queen”
  11. “Sunday Girl”
  12. “London”
  13. “Shadow Of Love”
  14. “Reprise (I Could’ve Been Your Girl)”
