Baraka | Leisure

 

Chaos can be peaceful. Red can be soothing. You have to remind yourself, to keep yourself from straying. Recognize your distractions. Take a peek outside your window, but slink back into yourself – lest you pour your energy into a fleeting figment, which will inevitably dissolve because the muse you can’t lose is inside.

 

Mo-Rice | Open Road

 

Unchartered territory every day. If you think you’ve been there before, leave quickly. Now, how about this for a concept: ash grey and honey yellow.

 

Sacre | Forever Young

 

Perfect cosmic pop for dreamy feminine hallucinations (I saw an article describing Sofia Coppola’s work in this way). This disco-tinged gem from Parisian duo Sacre is coloring my mood for this 4th of July. I’ve also been thinking about chromatic aberrations and it’s giving me life. Imagine diving into the rabbit hole you want. Imagine stepping into a dream and never coming out.

Secret Weapons | Ghost

 

Vagabond orphan misfits. Do you know what freedom feels like? Or are you in a cage of your own making? Sometimes a cage can be a good thing. You can tear it down later.

 

BlondeBears | Dissolve

 

Time plus distance equals amnesia. Why don’t you go away and make another world now? You don’t have to invite anyone else.

 

No Vacation | Yam Yam

 

Do you know how to relax? If you don’t, you’ve come to the right place. There are many good days ahead. The other day I photographed a man who told me his entire life story, with all the scary parts included. I’m not scared of anything anymore.

 

Joy Downer | Stranger Places

This song is saving me from my almost-depression with its tropical and Sun major vibes, reminding me that today IS in fact the first day of summer, regardless of what this Chicago weather will have you believe. But I hear, too, the blue breeze in the notes, which is better for the character.
