I've been sitting at my laptop for the past few days thinking of how to adequately write about Taylor Swift's 1989, but I found it hard to pick apart this project from a critical perspective. The album stirs up a lot of abstract emotions and every time I listen to it, my perceptions evolve as I fall a little more in love with the story Taylor narrates. I have such a personal connection to this album, and for that reason it's probably my favourite Taylor Swift record yet.
Time for another Weekend Update playlist post! Many releases that piqued my interest hit the Internet this week, making for a juicy selection that will have you hooked in no time. Perk up, grab your headphones and dive into the best the music industry has to offer...
There are a select few weeks between September and November each year in which I attempt to wear every light to medium weight jacket I own as often as possible. It's a task I commit to with the mindset of a one-man relay team, shuffling from jacket to jacket with the knowledge that once the first snowfall hits, I'll be buried under layers of knit and my Canada Goose jacket for the unforeseeable future.
Apologies for the belated Weekend Update post! The past few days were crazily busy, and there weren't too many songs I was enthusiastic about earlier in the weekend. Rather than lumping together a mediocre selection of tunes, I thought I'd hold off and spend my long-awaited free time tonight diving into the depths of the Soundcloud world. They say good things come to those who wait, and for you, my music-hungry friends, this couldn't be more true...
Ah, Thanksgiving... the best holiday of them all! From the turkey to the pumpkin pie, the cranberry sauce to the white wine, I am always overwhelmed by the amount of delicious food that floods my kitchen on this tasty day. As I write this post I am slowly slipping out of a food coma so deep that it rivals the Grand Canyon, thanks to a cup of green tea and NBC's The Voice (#TeamPharrell).
The weekend is the perfect time to sit back, relax and revamp your iTunes with the latest and greatest in music. Luckily, I've done all the work for you and hand-selected the tunes that should be at the top of your listening to-do list.
