Friday Playlist: WINTERING

Friday Playlists don’t stop for winter break! Hope all the students out there are enjoying some well-deserved time off to cool our brains down before they melt to mush. This week’s theme is wintering. You can find this playlist on the SoCC’s Spotify: thesoundsofcc.

Songs for those majestic winter strolls with snow crunching under your boots and the cold air taking your breath away.

PLAYLIST: 4thwk x 4thblk

The end of a semester is undoubtedly an emotional roller coaster. It’s the only time of year that you can go to the library and get to see a silently weeping student juxtaposed with the jiggly scrotum of the streaker who had the foresight to take Intro to Nature Sounds and is done with finals four days before anyone else.

Much like the average Fourth Week Experience, the Perfect Study Playlist is hardly one-size-fits-all. I’ve written papers to soundtracks ranging from Death Grips to Vivaldi. Regardless, Spotify playlists are the new mixtapes, and I just want the world to know that I am your secret admirer, I made this playlist for you, and I want it to make you happy and productive.

Godspeed, my children. The end is near.

Friday Playlist: VASTNESS

Friday playlist time! I am going to start posting these every Friday, centering each playlist around a different theme. You can find these playlists on the SoCC’s Spotify account “thesoundsofcc”. This week’s theme is vastness.

These songs are for when your thoughts seem too expansive to fit in your brain or when you are awestruck by the immensity of the universe around us. Inspired by my current road trip to a frisbee tournament through the never-ending plains of Kansas.

Witchcraft: A Playlist

Happy Halloween! Here’s a witchy playlist I’ve put together for the occasion:

Journey In Satchidananda by Alice Coltrane

  • Alice Coltrane is a powerhouse of an individual: a fantastic multi-instrumentalist, swami, and wife to none other than John Coltrane. “Journey In Satchidananda” is witchy in the most beautiful and spiritual ways.

Brujas by Princess Nokia

  • My favorite off of her excellent album 1992, “Brujas” is an ode to the rapper’s Yoruban ancestry and the power of brujería.

Heart of Chambers by Beach House

  • In Beach House’s autumnal ballad “Heart of Chambers,” vocalist Victoria Legrand croons of intense longing, conjuring spirits to make her lover smile.

Black Moon Spell by King Tuff

  • King Tuff’s “Black Moon Spell” is a whole lot of fun and angst.

I Put A Spell On You by Nina Simone

  • The most bewitching out of all the songs on this playlist, Nina Simone’s “I Put A Spell On You” is haunting in the intense emotionalism Simone imbues in the lyrics.

Run To Your Mama by Goat

  • Goat is a mysterious band. They perform in masks and claim to come from Korpilombolo, Sweden, a town that has a history of voodoo worship. “Run To Your Mama” is a catchy garage rock jam with diverse influences and a sinister edge to it.

The Killing Moon by Echo & The Bunnymen

  • When will this song ever not be on a Halloween playlist though??

White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane

  • One of Jefferson Airplaine’s best, this song is spooky psychedelia straight outta Alice In Wonderland.

Strange Magic by Electric Light Orchestra

  • I wanted to end this playlist on a less spooky note and go with this classic by Electric Light Orchestra. “Strange Magic” never fails to make me feel warm n fuzzy :’)

Enjoy, and have a safe, witchy Halloween!!!
