Welcome again to Monthly Mixtape, a music feature created by me, Eve @ Twist in the Taile, and Evi @ Adventuring Through Pages. Here’s how it works: each month, we give you a one-word prompt, and you make a playlist. We welcome you to interpret the prompt however you want and with whatever music you’re into.
Please link back to the original Monthly Mixtape prompt whenever you make a playlist. We welcome you to use the title image for your blog post if you wish. You can create a playlist in response to any of the previous prompts as well if you like. The next Monthly Mixtape will hopefully be up in the first week of March! And this month’s prompt is…
OK, my playlist this month has kind of a strange energy but I love it a LOT. I started off basically picking songs with harmonies that I’m obsessed with and it grew from there. Like there are just certain bits in a song where I listen over and over because it’s SO GOOD. The first time I fully listened to The World’s Best Kisser and it got to the section with the drums it was Woah. It was very difficult for me to find an album picture to represent the specific feeling of listening to a great harmony haha.
listen on spotify
the world’s best kisser – darwin deez
on a level – tove lo

I’m really loving some new discoveries Emily King & Hadestown — the album that the song When the Chips are Down is from which is a folk-jazz musical about Orpheus & Eurydice. I KNOW. SAME — in addition to my wonderful friend Georgie West’s new album. It’s such a BOP, guys.
I look forward to listening to more of your wonderful playlists! Thanks Miriam @ Shadowriverdaleharley for the great playlist in response to our last prompt Beginning. 🙂 Enjoy!
