Mixtape: June

June Mixtape · via Spotify

Well, I think this might be my most eclectic mixtape yet. There’s a bit of everything here: folk, country, alternative rock, indie, chart, heavy metal, 80s rock… I’m certainly not picky when it comes to genres! This month has been a bit of a mixed bag weather-wise, and it has definitely affected what I’ve listened to. On days like today when the sun is shining, you really can’t beat a bit of Weezer’s blue album or some classic hair metal tunes a la Van Halen. But when it’s dreary and miserable outside, I definitely reach for sad acoustic songs.

I also seem to have been listening to quite a bit of chart music this month, which is something I never really do unless I’m watching the music channels on TV whilst getting ready for a night out. I really hate myself for liking it, but Blurred Lines is so damn catchy arrrghh. I managed to restrain myself from including it, but have added in Get Lucky which I’ve been listening to a lot too. I’m not usually a fan of Daft Punk, but this song is in my head and it will not leave.

Weezer · My Name is Jonas
N.E.R.D · She Wants to Move
Lori McKenna · Swallows Me Whole
Parkington Sister · Cruel
Passenger · Let Her Go
Pearl Jam · Last Kiss

    eels, i haven't listen to them for years. I've been listening to a pretty random selection this month too, Beatles and snoop have featured a lot!

  • Mabel says:

    Nice mix! I've pretty much reverted to listening to music from growing up in the 90s lol. I love The Eels.
