Oh dear July, how you’re bringing forth some excellent music into your early days. Some old, some new but a commonality lie in the ways these songs made my heart leap in joy, remain still in melancholia and bubble up my creative juices. Undeniably, it’s been a struggle to get creative, however now I’m learning to just jump in and bring you whatever it is I have found beautiful. Starting with this July mixtape which I hope you’ll enjoy. And if you’re asking about favorites, the Indonesian folk duo, Figura Renata deserves the top spot. His soft-spoken guitar and her dreamy yet intense vocals completely drew me in with lyrics that criticize with class and elegance.
Take a listen.
