’15 Soundtrack: September

'15 Soundtrack: September

September felt like a boxing match and I was rolling with the punches. Adrenaline, pep talks, and live music helped me survive a beating. There were constant waves of exhaustion, injuries to the heart (what else is new), and my first true experience with an existential crisis. Not glamorous, but it’s the truth. Regardless, I do know IT WILL GET BETTER. I pinned a tweet of my previous statement on my feed as a reminder to myself and anyone who visits. It’s crucial to step back and realize that whatever crap you have to pick up, you’ll be able to dump that shit right in the trash and go on with your life.

Like I said above, I learned how to roll with the punches and I didn’t allow them to completely spoil September. I went to at least two shows a week (sometimes two shows in one night) and made it a point to see my friends every chance I had. I am in love with friendship. Make sure you support your friends and make it known that you appreciate them.

Now for the music. I’ve been hooked on the energy of CHVRCHES’ new tunes and I’m impressed with Halsey’s debut full length, especially the marketing of it. I’m still jamming to Melanie Martinez and Kid Cadaver all day, every day, and talking up a storm about Years & Years. I saw them again at The Wiltern recently and it was ace. So, I hope you enjoy this month’s ’15 Soundtrack as much as I enjoy it.

  1. I had Halsey’s new album on repeat for a week last month! She’s great.
    Lately for me it’s been Skizzy Mars (especially his remix of LÉON’s “Tired of Talking, both so so good), Priory, BØRNS, The Weeknd and HANA (who I saw open for Purity Ring, lovely voice).
    Just realized three of these artists spell their names in all caps…


    1. The new Halsey album is so great and I love your other choices. I need to listen to Skizzy Mars. I’m going to see Purity Ring in December and can’t wait to check out HANA. I’ve heard good things. All caps and taking out vowels is all the rage these days. haha.
