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.

 

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.

 

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.

Talus | Rane Latch

 

Summer is chaos but these sound waves will bring peace. Information and sensation overload but this song gives pause. It’s good to be ambitious, it’s good to be everywhere, it’s good to never stop. It’s good to stop. Stop here (sleep in the leather.)
