    I’ve been listening to It’s All Okay by Julia Stone. It’s haunting and reassuring all at once. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-luwfQOyPA&feature=youtu.be

    I recently got a trial subscription to XM Radio, and lately have been gathering all of the awesome music I forgot I loved from the 80s and 90s stations into a playlist. So I’ve been living a little bit in the past, musically.

    As far as music made in this millennium, I’ve been very into the latest Regina Spektor. It is ridiculous in its awesomeness.

    I also can’t help thinking that Ryan Star’s “Losing Your Memory” would feel very at home in your playlist.

    Your playlists are impeccable. Thank you.

    Well shoot, we’re out of sync. I was crying last night at 1am but I’m all good now. Bookmarking though…I am in the midst of multiple mini life crises, so I’m sure the tears will be flowing again any moment now.

    Thanks for posting. Let’s get our cry on and then try to move on to a not-crying phase soon :)

    Michael Kiwanuka. I have been listening to him, and I am so mournful as a result.

    I’m always listening to “frustrated desire” music, but more on days when I’m not feeling 100% (i.e., lately). Playlist – http://plussizefasyonmudra.blogspot.com/2012/07/lets-take-break-thursday-sawi-music.html (Translations – “sawi,” Filipino for slayed; “Pamatay” = killer)
