MAY MUSIC FAVORITES

Welcome back!

The month of May was composed of good times and even better music. With new releases from Parks, Squares and Alleys and The Strokes, it was literally music to my ears. This playlist was created with the intentions of a calming trip to the beach with friends, acting as a soundtrack as cars passed on the freeway and sand caved beneath our feet. Soft psychedelia is a consistent theme throughout, perfect for making memories to this summer. Enjoy!

MARCH MUSIC FAVORITES

Welcome back!

The month of March was a fairly uneventful time of my life, despite the day I attended a James Franco book signing in Los Angeles. Years of admiration and appreciation led to those very few seconds that I will never forget- these are some of the songs I recall listening to that day. I hope that they provide you with the same happiness that they do myself, and hopefully you too can create your own memories through them! Thank you for your continued interest and support; my next post entitled, “Father John Misty: A Live Review”, will be published on April Seventh!

ABOUT ME

Welcome!

Before I begin explaining what to expect from this blog, I’d like to first introduce myself. My name is Jenna- I am currently seventeen years old and living in the golden state of California. I have a strong passion for music and attempt to incorporate it into my daily lifestyle, hopefully finding a career to pursue that allows me to continue! I attend concerts as frequently as possible, as I find no greater joy than in seeing art being brought to life. I am extremely accepting of all genres of music, but I mostly associate myself with variations of indie rock, dream pop, and beach goth. I would love to hear your suggestions for songs or artists in the comments, as I promise I will listen to them and possibly include them in future posts!

Through monthly music playlists and the occasional concert review, I’m hoping to bring awareness to lesser known artists and expand your music library. Thank you in advance for your interest and support, you can expect my first official post to be a “March Music Favorites” published on April First!
