Ah my favorite playlist, it is so predictable you could probably guess what’s in it. (Lots of Architects? Amity? Bring Me? Ya think??) Here are 4 less obvious tracks:
Dream on Dreamer; Don’t Lose Your Heart. Belongs to the same family of bands as Amity Affliction (because everyone knows Amity, right?). Coincidentally also from Australia. This would be the track that got me into the band in the first place, it just popped up on YouTube one day.
The Mission; Kingdom Come. I always feel as if I’m the only person who even likes the Mission, bar some goth who listens out of duty. (Open call to contradict me here.) Kingdom come is one of those tracks I like to stick into any and all playlists. Fortunately enough, there’s about a million versions of it on Spotify; sometimes the world just makes sense.
The fact that there’s also about a million versions of every single song the Mission has ever recorded on Spotify too, well that just makes less sense and is on the confusing side.
Staubkind; Feuer ohne Asche. You know what’s really great about listening to music from countries other than your own, that isn’t really big outside that particular country? You have no idea if they’re cool or super embarrassing or what. Don’t know anything about this track or the guy. How I even found it? By clicking around on related artists on Spotify. We all do that, right?
Thrice; Black Honey (live acoustic version). This song is so underrated and I want a million versions + covers. It’s just a perfect pop song. And I love pop songs.

I’ve already grown tired of fall. It’s unseasonably cold; I am v. v. worried about winter.
Other things I’ve been up to this week:
Listened to the most recent In Flames record thinking I may have just been mistaken thinking I didn’t want to see them live. Again.
Northlane’s Node finally started to make so much sense to me. About time! Current fav track from the record is Rot:
Read Rainbow Rowell’s Landlines; disliked it to a point where I don’t think I’ll be reading any more of her books. Quite disappointed, I really did think we’d get along.
Gave the new Meshuggah a try. It’s still not my cup of tea; no matter what anyone tweets.
..unlike Dream on, Dreamer’s Songs of Solitude. Another band I’m itching to see live, but apparently they insist on touring Europe the same time as everyone else and I’m already booked up and out of vacation. Never mind my financial situation. I daren’t even look at it. Which I quickly forgot and…
Made plans for another gig; I’ve already seen Jonathan Johansson once this year, but apparently that wasn’t enough. ..but also. He’s playing on a Saturday close to where my sister lives; I have literally no excuse not to go. If I needed one.
Proof-read until my eyes bled. Or at least wept. Trying to get the eye makeup to stay on my face was truly a challenge.
Been lusting after Beth Ditto’s hair color, this one:
Had severe doubts about this not straighten hair business. Just once or twice a week? Won’t hurt right?
Basically, I haven’t had many thoughts this week that were unrelated to the music I listen to. I don’t imagine next week will be much different.
