I have been feeling kinda glum the last few days and I think it’s mostly weather-related — because this has happened enough times that I know to realize this is how I get at the end of February every year, when it’s been cold and dark for ages and all I do is crave carbs and feel pasty and fat, and that it will, eventually, end, as everything does — so I made a playlist called “Neverending Winter” of some songs I have been liking lately.
You can download it and you should also know that most of the songs are not, in fact, depressing.
Tracklisting (in alphabetical order):
“Blue Skies Again,” Jessica Lea Mayfield
“Cradle,” Joy Formidable
“Dogs Eyes,” Wye Oak
“Helplessness Blues,” Fleet Foxes
“I Promise You,” La Sera
“Kiss That Grrrl,” Kate Nash
“Lights,” Ellie Goulding
“Put the Days Away,” Sun Airway
“Satellite,” The Kills
“Shell Games,” Bright Eyes
This whole essay is so, so, so spot-on (please read the whole thing!); I have previously declared my love and admiration and borderline obsession with Molly Lambert and let me just PUT IT ON THE RECORD AGAIN. She just gets it, in such a major way.
- A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again is a perfect name for a new nail polish color.
